Is Another Super Bowl Win Really a Slam Dunk for Patriots?

In a fortnight, the New England Patriots will take part in their eighth Super Bowl in a 17-year span. They’ll be favored in that game, for obvious Tom Brady– and Bill Belichick-related reasons.

But the Pats emerged from their 24-20 AFC championship victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars as a team that might be running low on four-leaf clovers, rabbit feet and whatever else has allowed them to remain dominant during an era in which nobody is supposed to continually succeed.

Sure, the Patriots once again reminded us how much mettle they possess by coming back from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit against a defensively dominant opponent that had little to lose. It marked the third time in four years that New England won a major playoff game despite trailing by at least a double-digit margin in the final quarter (they also accomplished that feat in their last two Super Bowl victories).
