At FiveThirtyEight, we looked at a few more stats to keep in mind for this Super Bowl, including New England's No. 1 ranking in weighted DVOA, its No. 31 ranking in defensive DVOA for the season, how Tom Brady has been dealing with pressure as he's gotten older, and how the game script has gotten so familiar in New England Super Bowls.
I did a very similar article last season for Super Bowl LI for ESPN Insider that looked at Matt Ryan taking too many sacks (he took five in the big game), the impact of receiving backs (James White had Super Bowl-record 14 catches), and how this could be the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history with the way the Falcons blow leads (28-3). I think this year's matchup is harder to predict with the Nick Foles factor and what to trust with New England's defense (first month vs. last 14 games), but it should be a good game.
