Match Up: Another entertaining match up to witness. Brady sets the record for most Superbowl starts for a quarterback ever. The swooning over the Denver Broncos has the Patriots flying under the radar.

Tom Brady still has young wide outs, but they have more experience with Brady now and can really gel. Rob Gronkowski is a match up nightmare for defenses. Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner are huge additions to the Patriots secondary.

The Patriots linebackers are good in run coverage, so the Saints would need to exploit them in the air between the numbers. The Patriots would likely up their best guys against the Saints playmakers, so Brees would need to spread the ball and keep them guessing.

Result: The last time the Saints lost to the Patriots, they couldn’t stop the run. The defense gets the job done and forces Brady to throw against Byrd and Lewis to score points. The Saints win, 28-17.
