New England Patriots (Preview & Predictions)
The Philadelphia Eagles were the winner in Super Bowl 52 after an adventurous win 41 – 33 over the New England Patriots. Regardless of the reasons, there is a consistent dichotomy between the teams.
The principal figures remain the same, and no other team can block out distractions like Patriots. Tom Brady is a quarterback with head coach Bill Belichick. Until new notice, the Patriots will have a mix for the new season of Super Bowl.
Prediction: First in AFC East
With Brady as an offense leader, the team will play again. Brady is famous for his firepower and versatility. These qualities are enough to make anyone a top unit in a league. The QB can get the advantage of Julian Edelman’s return as a wide receiver. His after-the-catch ability and slipperiness can be a prominent element for the team.
For passing game, they have Edelman after his return from ACL injury. His presence will give a significant boost to the team. There may be a delay in his return. The presence of Gronkowski is expected in the Super Bowl after his public statement. With its return, the Brady has his dangerous weapon for the game.
After Brandin Cooks, Brady will offer maximum speed with special weapons like Phillip Dorsett, Cordarrelle Patterson and Chris Hogan. Josh McDaniels can be creative with Patterson for quick screens and jet sweeps.
There will be no difference in run game even with the Tennessee Titans. Sony Michel is more durable and bigger with similar skills. He can be a threat on three downs with his unique abilities. The Shaq Mason and David Andrews are strengths for this unit.
Patriots are optimistic for the current season of Super Bowl. It is important to work on their problem. Their mental mistakes can be a culprit. They have to work on their athleticism and speed. Comparison of Patriots with top defends of the league prove that others look more faster and explosive.
Patriots have to be more brave for attacks. The return of Dont’a Hightower may give an edge to this team. Back seven or eight may feature more speed. The seventh round of Keion Crossen may become a faster cornerback on Patriots. Twin brothers of Devin McCourty will offer versatile corner options. Stephon Gilmore can be an excellent addition to add more competition.
Players like Brandon Bolden, Nate Ebner, and Brandon King provides a stable base. They can make a rookie team with Christian Sam and Ja’Whaun Bentley.
