That if the Pats had gone into the playoffs with 1 loss already under the belt, that they would have had a better chance to win the Super Bowl? In other words do you believe that the pressure, and mystique, of having to finish off the perfect season affected the Pats performance in the final game? Honestly, I'm not sure. I kind of think that it's superstitious to believe that a Pats team that had finished the regular season 15-1 would have been any better off in the Super Bowl. But psychologically speaking, it's hard to measure how much of a difference it would have made to be 17-1 vs 18-0 going into the Superbowl against the Giants. Your HONEST answer? If the Pats go into the SB as 17-1, do they have a better chance to win?
