So now it’s official — the Patriots are the best team in football based on record alone. The Falcons’ loss to the Saints last night established that, and if the Patriots beat the Dolphins on Sunday, they’ll finish the season with a league-best 14-2 record that no team could match.
That has led, naturally, to much Super Bowl talk. So staying with that theme — and especially given the abundance of prime-time NFC games for us to watch lately — we pose the question below in a survey: If the Patriots reach the Super Bowl, which potential opponent worries you the most?
Earlier this month, we posed a similar question regarding which AFC playoff opponent worries you the most, and the Ravens ran away with that over the Colts, and third place went to the Chargers, who have now been eliminated from playoff contention.
