Gridiron Breakdown: Patriots vs. Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs have swept the Los Angeles Clippers and are the odds-on favorites to win the NBA title next month. A lot of pundits have already started to compare the team to the New England Patriots, in terms of a team that always wins.

I'm not sure the comparison is apt. Sure, both are consistent winners, but that is where the comparisons stop. Or is it? I will take these teams to the grid to see which is superior.

And without further ado …

And the winner? Well look at this, the Patriots win, 8-7. Congratulations, New England. This is your first major victory in a while, so enjoy it.
