Rep Power: 6 Inner Dirt will become famous soon enough
Was there a prop bet available for Nick Foles catching a TD pass?

The Lions look kind of foolish, having to trot out Matt Petricka (sp?) as their new coach. The Patriots defense looked slow, and the bend but not break approach eventually breaks. Under Petricka, the Pats defense was never in the top 10 in Football Outsiders DVOA rankings. The Patriots run was about two things: the best QB of all time and strong special teams.

They really are slow. They only played one good offense all year, the Steelers. It helps when you have Brady getting all those first downs and long drives.

The Lions looking foolish? You don't say? At least they had Jim Schwartz as a head coach who really shutdown the Pats. Oh wait.....

I'll take the Eagles against the Pats all day...especially with the spread at 5.5 points.
Well done.
