Super Bowl 51 Preview

My Predictions of Super Bowl 51

Super Bowl 51 is set. The New England Patriots will face the Atlanta Falcon. They will be playing February 5th in Houston. The teams are both coming off blow outs in the championship games.

The Falcons knocked off the Green Bay Packers 44-21. Matt Ryan passed for 392 yards and 4 passing touchdowns while also running for one touchdown. Julio Jones finished with 180 yards on 9 catches, including a 77 yard touchdown which he broke a few tackles. This game was predicted to be a high scoring game as both teams had explosive offenses but it was still expected to be close. Many people expected Aaron Rodgers to be able to overcome the awful secondary that the Packers have and be able to keep the Packers in the game. Matt Ryan lit up the Packers defense while Rodgers could not find any offense until the second half when they were down 31-0. The Falcons have a chance to win Super Bowl 51 because of how balanced their offense is. Julio Jones is not the only weapon as Devonta Freeman and Tevin Colemen are reliable running backs who can break tackles and be a force to take down.

The Patriots took down the Steelers to win their ticket to the Super Bowl. They won 36-17 with Brady throwing for 3 touchdowns two of which went to Chris Hogan. LeGarrette Blount added a one yard touchdown, and Stephen Gostkowski kicked three field goals. The Steelers did not get much from their big three, as Ben Roethlisberger only threw for one touchdown, Le'veon Bell got injured early and finished with only 20 total yards, and Antonio Brown only got 77 receiving yards. The Patriots have now won 7 AFC Championships since Brady took over in 2001. They will be looking to win their 4th Super Bowl. They have an offense where anyone can be plugged in and have a big game which is hard to stop. Any of the receivers can have a big game and win the game for the Patriots.

I think the Patriots will take down the Falcons in a high scoring game. New England slowed down on the of the best Wide Receivers in Brown but will have their work cut out for them again when facing Jones. Tom Brady has a lot of experience in Super Bowls and that experience will help him take over. The final score will be 38-31 New England.

17 Empowering Bible Verses For Women

You go, girl.

We all have those days where we let the negative thoughts that we're "not good enough," "not pretty enough" or "not smart enough" invade our minds. It's easy to lose hope in these situations and to feel like it would be easier to just give up. However, the Bible reminds us that these things that we tell ourselves are not true and it gives us the affirmations that we need. Let these verses give you the power and motivation that you're lacking.

13. Colossians 2:10

"And in Christ you have been brought to fullness."

14. 2 Timothy 1:7

ASU Baseball Is Already Knocking It Out Of The Park

All eyes are on the Sun Devils as they enter the national poll this previous week. The Sun Devils are the last unbeaten team left in the NCAA.


Starting off the season 18-0? Not bad, considering the Sun Devils' haven't gone undefeated at the start of the NCAA baseball season since 2010 when they went 24-0, but honestly where did this come from? In the 2017-18 season, the Devils finished off with 23-32, sitting towards the bottom of the Pac-12. Now they're the top of the conference, past the usual Pac-12 baseball powerhouse, Oregon State.

On a team with only 27 on the roster, which makes it the smallest team in the Pac-12, you wouldn't really expect such an explosive start to the season. Take a look at the improvements made, though, and you'll see why.

For starters, catcher Sam Ferri is back healthy and ready for this season to start with both pitchers Alec Marsh and RJ Dabovich, who've both thrown some great games, but if we're being honest here, have been a little inconsistent with a few errors, but have been backed up by the offense to get the job done.

On offense, Hunter Bishop and Spencer Torkelson are the ones to watch out for. Torkelson was named Pac-12 freshman of the year last year, after setting the Pac-12 freshman record of home runs. Now he's back with some deadly at-bat presence, as you can always expect a few RBIs from him, and also doing a great job at infield (#TorkBomb). Bishop's following suit, with major at-bats against Notre Dame, Michigan State, and Xavier.

Safe to say being ranked #23 right now is huge for a program that struggled majorly in the past seasons and has had some great players transfer out recently. Despite being faced with huge adversity before the season, this lineup is really producing some good stuff this year, and by being undefeated through the first month of play really exemplified that.

Hats off to Head Coach Tracy Smith for helping these young men after having the program suffer for a while.
