In 1967 the Boston Red Sox lived the ‘Impossible Dream’, going from last to first in one season. 40 years later, the Sox made a Possible Dream come true; fielding a solid team and winning the World Series. With many New England sports teams looking good this season, can they all make their "Possible Dreams" come true?

Brady/Manning Bowl v10.0

Currently, Tom's leading the career matchup 6-3... but Peyton's walked away with the last three wins, including the AFC Championship game last season. Try and wrap your head around this game: the teams are a combined 15-0. Both are helmed by Super Bowl MVP quarterbacks who have defeated every other team in football at least once. Both teams average over 32 points a game (Indy about 32, NE about 41). Both teams allow an average of 16 points a game.

Across the entire season, the quarterbacks were sacked a combined 13 times (one more than Donovan McNabb was sacked in a single game). Brady has thrown more TD's in 8 games than he did in the best entire season of his career. Both teams succeeded without their starting running backs. The Pats are the face of dominance, the Colts are a model for efficiency. This leaves one more mind bender:

The Patriots are 5.5 point favorites over an undefeated team that has the 2nd best record in the entire NFL. Sunday is going to be quite a show.
