Re: In a Pats 49ers Super Bowl
It's also worth pointing out that, unlike previous years, the Patriots have played what appears to be the toughest schedule in football this year. Ravens, Seahawks, Denver, a travel to London, the Colts, the Texans and the 49'ers.
Prior to the 49'ers loss they were a combined total of 4 points away from being undefeated through all of it, with the loses either under the questionable dominion of replacement officials and being forgivable in that they were at the beginning of the season.
Unlike the Pats of recent years who have gone into the play offs fat and happy and untested, this team is battle hardened.
