SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber, in predicting a 23-14 New England win, said, "Tom Brady and the Patriots are favored by a touchdown in the eyes of most sports books, but the Rams are 5-2 against the spread thanks to a solid defense.
"The problem the Rams have is that it takes a Herculean effort to score 20 points. The Patriots don't have that problem."
Peter King of Sports Illustrated foresees a 30-20 Patriots win and doesn't think the world travel will impact Brady and the offensive attack.
"Tom Brady's not going to have better or worse chemistry with Wes Welker Sunday," King writes, "at Wembley Stadium whether he practices in Foxboro or Burkina Faso."
