Super Bowl XLIX: Patriots On Offense

The New England Patriots offense has been dominating for over a decade.  This year they scored more than 40 points six times including the playoffs. Tom Brady has been the signal caller for this unit since 2001 except for the 2008 season when he was recovering from ACL surgery.  The Seahawks will have to watch the pass and the rush. Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman and Brandon LaFell combined for 248 catches, 3,049 yards, and 23 scores.  Head coach Bill Belichick is a football mastermind. He has confused defenses and started trends.  Expect to see some trick plays.

Here are the probable starters and key players for the Patriots’ offense.
