New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

USA Today Picks the Patriots to Go Perfect in the Regular Season

NFL training camps are set to get underway, and with it national publications are starting to make their picks – with one giving the Patriots a LOT of love.

USA Today has the Patriots running the table, much like they did in the 2007 season, going 16-0 in the regular season. Here’s what they had to say about the Pats:

New England Patriots (16-0): Is it bold? Sure. Kinda. But it’s not like Tom Brady hasn’t gone 16-0 before … (and, really, wouldn’t he and Bill Belichick secretly love to add 19-0 to their otherwise incomparable resumes?). And from the FWIW department, Brady went 14-1 last season and appears to be surrounded by an even better cast now, especially if Rob Gronkowski is, in fact, back to 100%. The division should be a cakewalk, and even one of New England’s toughest road games — against the Raiders — will be at a neutral site (Mexico City). The most difficult stretch comes from Weeks 13-15, when the Pats play at Buffalo, at Miami (where they typically struggle) and at Pittsburgh for a Monday nighter Dec. 17.

Sure the Pats would love to get a chance to duplicate history like they did in 2007, but more importantly the defending Super Bowl champs don’t want a repeat of what happened in 07 after they ran the regular season table – that being a Super Bowl loss.
