Let’s talk about the number 14. Valentine’s Day falls on the 14th of February, it’s what number Dalai Lama we have now and this Sunday, it will be the 14th time Atlanta and New England meet since the Patriots changed their names from the Boston Patriots to the New England Patriots. Hopefully for everyone watching, this won’t be one to forget. This will be the first time ever that these teams meet in the playoffs, but the Patriots own the series holding a  7-6 record. This will also be a first for Matt Ryan leading his team into a Super Bowl while Tom Brady is going into his 7th. Last year, we saw another example of an experienced postseason QB going up against an unseasoned QB and we all know how that turned out.

The big question that everyone is asking is who will have the best commercial this year? Pepsi and Coke always go back and forth and Doritos are always on their game. Take a look at the best commercials from last year’s Super Bowl.

This halftime show has the potential to be the best that we have seen in a very long time. From dancing sharks to pictures that certain artists don’t want on the internet anymore, the NFL has been hard pressed to find an actual performer. Lady Gaga sang the national anthem last year and even that had us getting teary eyed. Gaga is a performer, she knows how to put on a show and she has the voice to back it up. Take a look at some previous Halftime Shows to get in the mood.

Road To Houston:

First Round Bye

Second Round vs Seattle

Championship Round vs Green Bay

Aaron Rodgers tried his darnedest, but the Falcons were just too much at home. Neither this game nor the AFC Championship were very close so it is all about this weekend. The Falcon’s offense has been incredibly difficult to stop all year, they have faced some of the toughest defenses in the league and come out unscathed. The Falcons always have four or more options on offense and it makes life incredibly difficult for anyone to guard all of them and if those options don’t work, Matt Ryan can always desperately heave one up to Julio because that man has not been stopped all year.

Road To Houston:

First Round Bye

Second Round vs Houston

Championship Round vs Pittsburgh

Just another week for Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. Tom Brady has the opportunity to become the only player in NFL history with five Super Bowl rings, he is tied with Joe Montana at four rings. Can the Patriots knock off the newcomers, Atlanta, in Houston? Tom Brady has been through this before, he knows what to expect from the press and from his own team. Matt Ryan has never been in front of this many people before and it can be nerve racking. If both teams come out and play their game the fans are in for a treat, we just have to watch that Goodell doesn’t pull anything shady to avoid handing over that trophy to Brady.
