1. Modivation. No team in the NFL is more modivated to win it all than the pats. they have been sticking it to the league all season, and now they know of they do not win it all choke will always be associated with the 2007 patriots, they will not let that happen. 2. Kevin and Troy. These guys might not be on ESPN every Sunday, but the key plays they make on third down, in special teams, and stripping the ball after a pick are just as important as the TDs that are scored. The vetern leadership, teamwork, and key plays are reasons they have won so many games over the years. 3. Indy, Philly, Balt, NYG. These are all games the Patriots trailed in the second half, and could have lost. The ravens game they should have lost. But they just didn't. This team finds a way to win even when it seems impossible. They are not going to blow out every team, and winning the close games is just as much proof you are a great team as blowing a team out. They seem to always find a way.
