    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.

    Kevin and Troy have vet leadership but really I look to Brady, Harrison, Bruschi, Seau and Seymour and even Light to an extent because these guys are in there every play leading by example.

    4. If they had been playing a team they have already beaten handily,
    JUST POSSIBLY there might have been some elements of complacency in their preparations.
    Having played neither Jax nor Tenn ...
    the troops will give the coaches their full attention.

    The 2007 version of the Pats does not choke. Nor does it play at the level of the opponent. It bulldozes it's way to victory.
    All that understood, I am still sick to my stomach from the AFCCG last year...and yes, we choked in the second half to lose it.

    Modivation and Troy Brown? I think the Fargo winter has frozen your brain cells.

    just play that afc championship game on a loop, that should be reason to not want to lose period.

    blowing a game they should of won will motivate a team that shouldn't lose to win.

    The Pats have more at stake, but they could be tighter as a result.

    I don't expect that to matter in the end, but it could make the games closer than we expect.
