We have completed our "Who Will Win" analysis for this year's Super Bowl. Here is just one of the championship factors we reviewed:
DefenseThe old adage, "Defense wins championships," has proven to be true. Defense is associated with hard-nosed, gritty work. Defense is typically more consistent – and interestingly, can overcome glitzy offenses - which are sometimes able to "run up numbers" against weaker opponents during the regular season. A large majority of Super Bowls (63%) has been won by the team with the better defense, measured by "points against." The Patriots led the NFL in this category this season. Edge: New England.
