Confidence or cockiness? New England Patriots send out AFC Championship tickets

Confidence or cockiness? New England Patriots send out AFC Championship tickets”

If the oddsmakers in Las Vegas are any indicator, there are going to be three distinct classes of teams in the National Football League this season and one of those groups is the New England Patriots all by themselves. This would be considered pretty arrogant for most teams, but it's hard to blame the Patriots for looking ahead.

New England sent out its ticket packages this year with 12 tickets: two preseason games, eight regular season and two playoff games. One Twitter user shared a picture of the tickets. The Jets were the last team to knock the Patriots out of the playoffs before the AFC Championship after they won their AFC Divisional round matchup in the 2010 season. Sending out AFC Championship tickets in August is basically adding fuel to that fire. Brady holds a 26-3 record all-time against Buffalo.

The Patriots may be heavily favored to host and appear in the AFC Championship game, but the team may have given every other AFC team bulletin board material before the start of the 2017 season.

The Green Bay Packers represent New England's closest competition on the futures with solid +750 odds, followed by a quartet of contenders at +1200, including the Dallas Cowboys, Seattle Seahawks, Oakland Raiders, and Pittsburgh Steelers.
