Brady, beer and chicken wings it's Super Bowl time

With the Super Bowl just a few short days away, the New England Patriots find themselves inching closer and closer to the historic day.

Watch more of O'Reilly and Gray's Super Bowl discussion above, and tune in to O'Reilly's interview with President Trump on FOX broadcast network on the Super Bowl LI pregame show Sunday at 4:00 p.m. ET. The one about a certain dimpled quarterback cementing his status as the G.O.A.T. with a victory over the Atlanta Falcons at NRG Stadium? The Falcons, meanwhile, got a splendid red-zone performance from quarterback Matt Ryan in their chilly, breezy practice at Rice University, according to the pool report.

Usually, the Patriots suss out their opponent and strike in the second quarter, but the Falcons can keep them off the field.

We deserve a break on Super Bowl Sunday, don't we?

But as Belichick prepares to take on Jones in Super Bowl LI, he doesn't want to talk about the advice he gave Dimitroff against trading up for Jones.

"They put up with a lot from us all year", coach Bill Belichick said.

I'm going to go with the Falcons outright.

On the ground, LeGarrette Blount has taken a lot of pressure off him. They execute better than just about everybody at their routes.

The Falcons averaged 120.5 rushing yards per game, the fifth best total in the league. He has Julio Jones as his best receiver. But on top of that QB-WR duo, you've got some of the best running backs in the league.

"I think if Tom wins this game, and I never thought I'd say this, he surpasses Joe Montana as the greatest ever", Brett Favre said. I don't think Atlanta can get there.

"He's an wonderful guy and we have a corporate philosophy in everything we do: You take negative situations and you try to turn them into positives". Weighted towards end-of-season performance, it was ninth. In the NFC championship, the Packers were supposed to be peaking at the exact right time.

Patriots' News: New England wide receivers greatly underrated?

People are finally taking notice and starting to appreciate the offensive talent this team has.

That's not to mention the latest group of Patriots newcomers who have made an impact. There's a good reason that since 2010, head coaches are 3-22 against Belichick when facing him for the first time.

While it looks like the Patriots are receiving the bulk of the predictions for the Super Bowl, there are still plenty on the Falcons bandwagon. During the same stretch, the Falcons are 7-1 and have outscored their opponents by 136 points (17.0 points per game). Eventually the offenses will warm up, and when they do, that favors the Falcons.

Will this game come down to the last drive? "To make a story, things like that", Flowers told me Thursday. Now, you start talking about a Matt Ryan, a Julio Jones, a Mohamed Sanu, a Taylor Gabriel, who came on this season, you start talking about offensive firepower. And it's just so hard to go against the Brady-Belichick combo.

During one of Tom Brady's four, long media availabilities this week - seriously, nearly a regular season's worth combined for him - the New England quarterback said his head coach not only hasn't mellowed a bit since 2000, he's actually less flexible.

But I worry about Atlanta's defense and its ability to get to Tom Brady. Think about the teams that have managed to actually beat the Patriots in the playoffs recently.

Of course this time around, the script has been flipped on New England. Last year, the Broncos had Von Miller, who terrorized Brady and then terrorized Cam Newton en route to a Super Bowl MVP.
