Patriots list seven players as questionable for the Super BowlBy Susan Cole Feb 05, 2017
But who will be the X-factor for the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 51?
A Las Vegas betting company took a $1.1million (£880,000) punt on the underdog Falcons to beat the Patriots this Sunday night, ESPN reports.
The post Who will be the X-factor for the Patriots in Super Bowl 51? appeared first on Cover32. "High school, college and professional football and never had the good fortune to have one of his athletes have the success that Tom Brady, who grew up in my neighborhood and my parish, has had for me, so I feel certainly very blessed and very fortunate".
Though he isn't sure if she'll be able to make the game, he acknowledged how much it will mean to him if she is in the stands as the Patriots face the Atlanta Falcons. Check out his red-zone numbers alone.
The Patriots are a perennial contender and led by one of the NFL's all-time greatest quarterbacks in Tom Brady but a constant cloud seems to hang over them given a spotty past that includes scandals popularly known as Deflategate and Spygate.
Of course, Brady started his season on the NFL's suspended list. Atlanta didn't blitz a ton in the regular season but ramped it up considerably in the postseason and relied on it a lot to disrupt Rodgers.
It won't surprise if New England relies on a no-huddle attack more than usual to deter Atlanta's high substitution rotation.

But Democrats are still incensed since Republicans refused to even hold hearings for Barack Obama's nominee, Merrick Garland. Judge Gorsuch took a humbler approach, and showed the flair for language that has won him praise as a legal writer.
There have been two major story lines in the mainstream media heading into the game. And I guess the other question could be, does New England have enough to keep up with that offense? "But it was a magical day in my life, and I know for Patriot fans having Coach Belichick come to this team was the best thing for this franchise". "The Falcons scored points on more drives than any other team besides the 2007 Patriots, which averaged 3.37 points per possession". They won't be going up against Brock Osweiler on Sunday.
"I've been to five Patriots games: one in Chicago (W 36-7), two in Indianapolis (W 42-20, W 34-27), and two at Gillette Stadium (L 35-28 to the Eagles and W 35-17 against the Bengals)".
All of them are in the front seat.
"You're taking a game that's three hours and it's going to be closer to four", he said. Great players are just good all the time.
The Patriots boast one of the best secondaries in the league, which is good news going against such a potent Atlanta passing game.
I've gone back and forth on this game - a lot. Devonta Freeman dominated by recording 188 rushing yards and a touchdown; Tevin Coleman added 56 yards on the ground and a score of his own. I very much doubt anything interesting will happen with Brady and National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell in terms of their interaction if New England wins. The Falcons are 5-0 in games this season when Jones has been held to 60 or less yards. While Brady has had his moments - that flea-flicker against Pittsburgh being one - Ryan has looked fresher, sharper, less harried, more efficient.
