New England Patriots

For starters, it’s probably going to work out that way. So let’s just expect it.
Second of all, this is a good Super Bowl path to take. Yes, the odds of us getting to the Super Bowl would be dramatically decreased. We know this. But until the day they invent that memory-wiping thing from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I’ll continue being haunted by Super Bowl XLII. And so will the Patriots.
There’s no point of getting back to the Super Bowl if they’re not bringing the Lombardi trophy on a parade through Boston.
And there’s no point in getting to the big game if we’re not going to believe in our team.
Right now, we don’t believe in them. Not completely.
Nearly every win this season was difficult to get. The Redskins, the Colts, the Cowboys, the Dolphins, and the Bills gave us all we could handle, and those teams didn’t even make the playoffs.
Never once did Patriots’ fans recline in their chairs, prop their feet up, crack open a beer in satisfaction, and enjoy the game. Every week was a potential migraine-inducing blunder. Every game was an uphill battle.
Only in Week 10, right after our second victory over the Jets, did Patriots’ fans entertain the notion that the Patriots could be destined for something terrific.
Beating the Steelers and the Ravens would change everything about the perception of this team. More importantly, it’ll change the mindset of the Patriots. They’ll feel ready to run through a brick wall for that trophy. That’s the team we want.
