The New England Patriots have been wearing a crown for the entire NFL season. Early on thy romed, beating their opponents by wide margins. Later in the season they preserved their perfect record with narrow victories. It all seemed to be pointing in the drection of the NFL’s first perfect season since the 72 Miami Dolphins.
Now the San Diego Chargers travel to New England to take on the Patriots. The Chargers traveled a different road, struggling early before righting their ship. All of which begs the question; Are the Chargers the hotter team at the moment? Can they stop the Patriots Perfection Express? Possible. Not likely.
Should the Chargers win and advance to the Super Bowl, I’ll have to eat a lot of crow. Not a problem. I’ve developed a taste for it.Eric Drouant
