Now that the Patriots have secured their spot as the AFC Champions after their win against the Jacksonville Jaguars we are counting down the days to the Super Bowl 2018.
The 52nd edition of the Super Bowl will take place on the 4th of February in Minnesota, USA.
The New England Patriots will face the NFC Champs, the Philadelphia Eagles we fought for their spot against the Minnesota Vikings.
Star quarterback Tom Brady proved to us that age is just a number and also to his team that no matter how good the other team's defence is, they are in their own league.
The NFL divisional playoffs were just the warm-up and now we have the main race.
As you may know, this is not the first Super Bowl for the New England Patriots, in fact, this will mark the 10th appearance in the Super Bowl.
Today we will speak about the Patriots Super Bowl appearances and our own predictions for the upcoming Super Bowl 2018.
How Many Times Have The Patriots Played In The Super Bowl?
In total 10 times.
However, in the previous four seasons, the Patriots have made it to the Super Bowl three times.
- 1985– Lost 46-10 to Bears
- 1998– Lost 35-21 to Packers
- 2001– Won 20-17 over Rams
- 2003– Won 32-29 over Panthers
- 2004– Won 24-21 over Eagles
- 2007– Lost 17-14 to Giants
- 2011– Lost 21-17 to Patriots
- 2014– Won 28-24 over Seahawks
- 2016– Won 34-28 over Falcons
What this also means is that on the 4th of February at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota Tom Brady will make his eighth Super Bowl appearance.
The Patriots have come a long way since their first appearance back in 1985 when they lost against the Bears.
They then took another beating to the Packers until they recorded their first win in 2001 against the Rams, led by no other than Tom Brady.
New England's most recent Super Bowl appearance came last year when they came back from a 25-point deficit in the second half to beat the Falcons 34-28 in overtime.
Who would have thought that fast forward to 2018 that the Patriots would be such a force to be reckoned with.
Will The New England Patriots Win The Super Bowl?
The truth is this; whether you love them or hate them – the New England Patriots could make you a lot of money.
Well firstly, they have the one quarterback that is the first of his kind playing for the one team that has the most recorded wins.
As we read on the Ringer;
‘They [the Patriots] are good enough to always be in big games, imperfect enough to keep them close, and they understand situational football so well that they still usually end up winning. If you watch a New England game and feel nothing, it means you have died.’
And we couldn’t agree more.
The “Patriot Way” is all based on anticipating the future game and dominating the execution.
So, yes we predict that the Patriots will win the Super Bowl and therefore makes perfect sense to place your money on this winning team at Bovada.
