NFL 2007: Year of the SuperPatriots

Look. It's a bird. It's a plane. It's the SuperPatriots. At the 2006 playoffs, the San Diego Chargers said that they would beat the Patriots on their way to the Superbowl. After the Chargers were defeated 24 to 21, the Patriots made a weeping Tomilson and the Chargers eat their words.

In game 2 of the 2007 NFL season, the Chargers met the Patriots again. The Patriots were upgraded with Moss, Welker, Stallworth and a healthy Seau and Harrison. But this time the Chargers were silent because they knew what the Patriots can do. Again the Chargers were defeated with a score of 38 to 14. In Game 6 of 2007, the Dallas Cowboys and Owens said that they will beat the Patriots and that the Cowboys will be the only undefeated team in the NFL. Yet the Patriots beat the Cowboys 48 to 27. A humiliated Owens still said that the Patriots were not that good. In Game 8, the Patriots blew out the Redskins with a score of 52 to 7. The ashamed Redskins asked the world why the Patriots had to beat them so bad. In Game 9 of 2007, the only 2 undefeated NFL teams met. The silent Colts had played against the Patriots numerous times and knew what the Patriots were capable of. The Patriots beat the Colts 24 to 20 and were now the only undefeated team in the NFL. In Game 12 of 2007, the Baltimore Ravens said they would give the Patriots their first loss of the season. Yet the Patriots beat the Ravens 27 to 24. In Game 13 of 2007, the Pittsburgh Steelers said that they had been waiting all season to end the Patriot's winning streak and that they knew how to win against the Patriots. Yet the Patriots beat the Steelers 34 to 13.

The undefeated Patriots with 15 wins has broken the regular season winning record of 14 wins by the 1972 Miami Dolphins. Opponent's fans had rooted against the Patriots all season. Yet only one game stands in the way of the New England Patriot's perfect regular NFL season. Who are these men that make their opponents weep? They're not mere men. I saw the Supermen win again last Sunday.
