Who Will Win the Big Game: 2019 Super Bowl

Just a quick summary: the sport psychology factors we study point to the New England Patriots in this year's Super Bowl.  Many factors including big game experience, fewer mistakes by the team leader (QB), consistency, and defense -- all point to the Patriots.  This will count for our official quant fact predictions. 

This year's Super Bowl does feature several story lines, most notably age versus youth.  Goff is entering his prime, while Brady is Brady (wanting to play until age 45!).  We'll update our record at some point, too.
