Ahem. Well I thought the Falcons had this thing wrapped up in the first half, but let that be a lesson to you. It's funny I have a female friend that lives in Houston, but doesn't know anything about football. She asked at the half if 21 points was a lot. I responded by telling her, yes 21 points was a lot, but not against Tom Brady. I'm glad that the Pats made it competitive in the end. To me it seems like after the first half the Falcons were playing not to lose. Which is way different than playing to win.
I also have to say that it came to no surprise to all of you who was the favorite to win. 23 people picked the Patriots to win again this year, 23! In the end though it came down to just 4 picks though. We had 4 people correctly guess the match up, three of those correctly picked the winner!
The correct guess with all the correct tie breakers would have been
Patriots over Falcons, 62 points, 3 turnovers.
And with the correct guess for the winner and two correct tie breakers and being very close to the third our winner is Dion from Dion's IP Autos only!
Dion's IP Autos only - Patriots over Falcons 59 points 3 turnovers!
