Since the Denver Broncos lost on Saturday, the Pats, who started the playoffs as a #2 seed, will actually get to host next week’s game and it’ll be against a familiar foe…the Baltimore Ravens.
So get pumped up for the game, and the rest of the NFL postseason, with this New England Patriots Playoff Playlist!
Queen, “We Will Rock You”
The Patriots emerged from the weekend as the Vegas favorites to win the Super Bowl, so they have to play with that “We Will Rock You” mindset next Sunday if they plans on getting to New Orleans.
For the past decade plus that’s all this team has been doing, “Winning” — and no, not the Charlie Sheen way. Let’s hope they continue their “winning” ways on Sunday against the Ravens.
Rush, “One Little Victory”
Sunday’s win was HUGE for the young Patriots team in boosting their confidence, but really it was just “One Little Victory” on the road to a much larger goal: hoisting the Lombardi trophy in 3 weeks.
Bob Dylan, “Paths Of Victory”
The “Path Of Victory” for the Patriots is simple: win Sunday night and book your flight to New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII. However, this Ravens team will not be intimidated so the hometown team will need to play its best game.
Guns N’ Roses, “Welcome to the Jungle”
Come Sunday night at 6:30pm, Gillette Stadium will quite literally be a jungle atmosphere, with the highest of stakes on the line. Home field advantage is a great thing to have on your side in the NFL, especially in the playoffs, so “Welcome To The Jungle” Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens.
Bruce Springsteen, “Born To Run”
This Patriots team has a great mix of talent, both young and veteran, and I believe they are geared for a long playoff run, in this year and the future…so I guess you could say this team was “Born To Run.”
