The New England Patriots are still riding the wave from their historic Super Bowl victory, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop any time soon.
The Patriots are heading into the 2017-18 season at the top of every power ranking and are just about everyone’s pick to finish at the top of the league once again. Sports Illustrated just released its NFL preview for the upcoming season, and the magazine cover couldn’t be a more accurate description of the current situation in the NFL.
The SI cover features the Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady with miniature players from every other NFL team trying to take him down.
“31 Teams 1 Goal: Solve The Patriots Problem,” the cover reads, “Can the unstoppable dynasty be stopped?”
The Patriots have been the team to beat since Brady took over at quarterback, but after their fifth Super Bowl championship with him under center, it’s official: The Patriots are Goliath, and the other 31 teams in the league are David. It will take all 31 of them to take the giant down.
Fortunately for Patriots fans, most times even that doesn’t work.
