2015 Football Preview Show: Tom Brady, Patriots Are Reset, Focused

The New England Patriots are the defending Super Bowl champions. Unfortunately for them, it’s not exactly undisputed.

After an offseason filled with shady sources, court cases and fiery rhetoric — most of it aimed toward him — Tom Brady finally can put Deflategate behind him and focus on a championship repeat. To say he’ll be motivated would be an understatement, what with the legendary Patriots quarterback being branded a cheater, a liar and a fraud for seven months.

Thankfully for Patriots fans, coach Bill Belichick is the master at rebooting his team’s focus, so Brady’s and his teammates’ eyes will be on one thing Thursday night when they kick off the 2015 NFL season — winning another Lombardi Trophy.

That’s where we begin in the 2015 Football Preview Show, which you can (and should) watch in the video above.

Matt Chatham, three-time Super Bowl champion and founder, joins Ashley Allen in studio to share his experiences with entering a new season with high expectations, and Doug Kyed and Michaela Vernava check in from Gillette Stadium to break down the Patriots’ chances of repeating February glory. Darren Hartwell dispenses some last-minute fantasy football advice, and Ben Watanabe and Michael Cole make their picks in the AFC, NFC and, of course, Super Bowl 50.

So forget about work and enjoy the 2015 Football Preview Show. It’s guaranteed to get your football juices flowing.
