Over the past decade or so, the New England Patriots have been arguably one of the best teams in the NFL every single season with the lethal combination of superstar quarterback Tom Brady under center and three-time Super Bowl champion head coach Bill Belichick calling the shots on the sidelines. One of the main reasons for this NFL franchise’s success has been the dominant offense led by Tom Brady, but another key part of the three Super Bowl titles in New England was also the defense.
A couple of seasons ago, the Patriots once dominant defense quickly fell apart with multiple players retiring and moves being made to bring in younger players on the defensive side of the football. As a result, New England has gone from being one of the better defensive teams in the league to arguably the worst.
This season the New England Patriots have continued to struggle on the defensive side of the football, but it hasn’t affected this team’s success as they finished the NFL regular season with a 13-3 record, another AFC East division title and a first-round bye in the playoffs. Despite the success of the regular season, the Patriots will face the league’s elite in the playoffs and a lot of questions have been raised about whether or not this team can continue to contend with the best of the best.
With Tom Brady and company firing on all cylinders on offense, the New England Patriots will be a force to be reckoned with in the postseason, but if the potent offense can continue to make up for a poor defense remains to be seen.
The New England Patriots are arguably the best team in the AFC Conference right now with the Baltimore Ravens a close second in my opinion. Even though they might run the table in the AFC, I believe they will lose to whichever team represents in the NFC Conference in the Super Bowl.
