Do you have any clue as to how NY won that game?
Here's a hit. They had a matchup advantage vs NE that we never could have matched.
Here's another hint for you. Pats barely walked out of the regular season undefeated after week 17 in Ny.
The pats stomped Dallas in Dallas that year.
Learn the game. This league is about matchups. There's a reason NY has beaten NE 3x straight and 2x in the SB. They matchup well vs them.
In 2007-we didn't.
That's all well and good but you're overlooking one thing.
