Just quoting Bear Bryant and Mike Ditka. The Pats averaged 38 plus points per game during the regular season. When Pats played Giants (twice) and Steelers (once) they scored 16 -20 points and lost. Shudda lost to Bmore but for choke-a-saurus Condiff. Gee, maybe I missed it, but didn't defense bat the ball from Evans, cause if not, then Bmore wins the championship -- oh, wait a minute, defense doesn't win championships.
Defense beat Greenbay.
Defense slowed Saints although the end was a shoot out.
