A preview of SB LI # 1 scoring offense vs # 1 scoring defense
In two weeks we will see a complete clash of two powerhouse offenses in SB LI at NRG Stadium, in Houston Texas. These two teams completely dominated their opponents on Championship Sunday as the Falcons pretty much wiped out Green Bay by the time the second half even started, and New England pretty much did the same as they went up early on and never let Pittsburgh back into the game to make it close.
Going into the weekend the spreads were all over the placed, numerous people had the Packers going into Atlanta and possibly knocking them off to make yet another Super Bowl appearance, while not many but few people also could’ve said the same thing for Pittsburgh and seeing how hot they can get at times. Not to mention they’ve got the #1 running back in Le’Veon Bell and #1 if not #2 top WR in the league in Antonio Brown.
So now that we have our final two teams who do you got? Well looking at a lot of these odds, and history of both teams Tom Brady for starters has never lost to the Falcons in his 17 year career in the NFL, and the Patriots with Tom Brady have won each contest by an average of 10 points or more. This time around the Falcons look to get their first win over the Patriots in quite sometime, and what better way to get that win over Brady and co then at the Super Bowl? Something’s gotta give here. In the 2016 season Atlanta is averaging 33.8 ppg with the #27 ranked defense, and New England averaged 27.6 ppg with the #1 scoring defense in the NFL.
If history holds to its word it the old saying goes like this “Defense wins championships” and going into the Super Bowl with the teams coming in with #1 offense vs #1 defense history favors the top scoring defense in this case.
Super Bowl XIII: #1 Offense Cowboys vs #1 Defense Steelers Result: Steelers, 35-31
Super Bowl XVII: #1 Offense Dolphins vs #1 Defense Redskins Result: Redskins, 27-17
Super Bowl XXIV: #1 Offense 49ers vs #1 Defense Broncos Result: 49ers, 55-10
Super Bowl XXV: #1 Offense Bills vs #1 Defense Giants Result: Giants, 20-19
Super Bowl XLVIII: #1 Offense Broncos vs #1 Defense Seahawks Result: Seahawks, 43-8
Now obviously the 49ers offset that in 1989, but majority of the time the defense pulls throw for their team. I’m not saying the Falcons can’t upset the Patriots here and claim their first Super Bowl victory, but it is the Patriots who hold the more balanced team with the #1 scoring defense, and #3 scoring offense while Atlanta comes in with the #1 ranked offense, but #27 ranked defense which isn’t good news, if they plan on slowing down Tom Brady and his high-powered offense.
