Tom Brady Threw For Six Touchdowns In The Snow When The New England Patriots Beat The Tennessee Titans 59-0

Two times since the AFL and NFL merged in 1970 into the NFL we know today, has a team won by a college football-like 59 points – and by the same tally, 59-0.

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots whupped the Tennessee Titans by that score in 2009. More than 30 years earlier, the Los Angeles Rams grounded the Atlanta Falcons in the same manner.

That’s two of 11 times a team has won by at least 50 points.

Thirty times a team has won by 45 or more. Talk about running up a score. They are listed below.

Super Bowl XLIX (49) Will Be Played In Arizona, And The Opening Favorites Are The Denver Broncos

Super Bowl XLIX (49) Will Be Played In Arizona, And The Opening Favorites Are The Denver Broncos

Who is going to win Super Bowl XLIX, and who’s in the running? Two sources below have some differences, but they agree on two things, most importantly.

The top four teams are the Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots.

And both say it will be the Broncos who win the big one.

But boy do they disagree on some other possibilities. First, though, let’s get a rundown on the three lists below and where they came from.

As with last season’s (2013) early predictions, Sports List of the Day turned again to the Prediction Machine at predictionmachine.com. The folks over at PM have already played out the entire 2014 NFL season – 50,000 times!

The result? Super Bowl win and playoff berth percentages, sorted for all 32 teams in the top two lists, respectively.

The third list are the straight up betting odds out of Las Vegas, from Bovada.
