As the season nears an end, one thing has become evident—nobody can stop the New England Patriots.
Just weeks ago, fans and experts everywhere were bashing the Pats for dealing away Randy Moss. They thought New England would lack a deep threat. That without safety help on Moss, Welker would struggle in the slot. The truth? This offense is every bit as potent as the 2007 team that broke NFL records across the board.
Through 13 games, the Patriots have scored 415 points—142 points more than their closest divisional opponent. The acquisition of Deion Branch gave the Patriots a sure handed receiver with crisp route running skills, while Danny Woodhead’s addition gave New England a versatile and dynamic back that can be used all over the field.
With a young and constantly improving defense, the Patriots look unstoppable, but is there anybody out there who can stop Belichick and company? Here we examine all 10 potential playoff and Super Bowl match-ups to see which teams stack up.
