This is a tough call, because a Packers-Patriots Super Bowl would produce that super-fun duel between Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. Cowboys-Patriots would inflate the Super Bowl into something we’re not sure anybody could handle given the mega-personalities on and off the field on both sides.
Better than C-W III? Bigger, for sure. The Seattle-New England matchup in Super Bowl XLIX is the most-watched show in U.S. history. We’re confident at Dallas-New England matchup would beat that.

Physicality. After reviewing the Game 1 tape, Lue determined the Cavs must play more physically to disrupt the Warriors’ offense, ESPN.com reports.
“I think, just make them feel us,” Cavs forward Kevin Love said Friday. “That’s something that I imagine Ty probably talked about with the (media) and we can definitely do a better job of.”
Said Thompson (via Yahoo! Sports), “I think the Cavs on Sunday will make a plan to not let (Durant) get so many easy buckets around the rim. I expect the Cavs to play a more physical game on Sunday to combat that.”
Role players. A J.R. Smith 3-pointer was the first basket of Game 1. He didn’t score after that. Reserves Kyle Korver and Deron Williams were held scoreless. But in terms of lack of production from role players, Tristan Thompson is culprit No. 1.
Thompson had no points and just three rebounds in 22 minutes.
“I think Tristan will come out in Game 2 and be Cheap Bike Jerseys For Men a lot more assertive and just use his will to get rebounds on both sides of the ball,” Love said. “He’s Cheap Bruins Jerseys so capable and so good at doing that, no matter who we’re playing, against any team in the league.”
