Patriots have advantage with added motivation

A neat story in the NFL has emerged on Chris Hogan, a former Penn State lacrosse player  now a football player with the New England Patriots.

I am really happy for him.

As for today’s big game, I am taking New England over the Atlanta Falcons by 10 points as the Pats want that seventh Super Bowl title for Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.

Also, both Brady, 39, and Belichick, in his early 60s, are getting closer to taking retirement more seriously.

So the motivation is heavier for the Patriots.
