Now I’ll dive into the questions presented to me from Ben at KC Kingdom before giving you all my game prediction and X-Factor.

There are some high expectations for the New England Patriots this year. We’ve seen a lot of “super teams” and “teams of destiny” fail to live up to standards in the past. Is there any concern of that for the Pats this year?

I don’t think so. Of course, there is always a chance that New England doesn’t win the Super Bowl and that’s a loss of a season as far as Patriots fans are concerned, but I really don’t see much threat to them. I don’t think they’re a super team, they aren’t going out and trading for CRAZY talent. Yes, they added Brandin Cooks and Stephon Gilmore, but even if they hadn’t, the expectation in New England would still be another Super Bowl banner.
