Super Bowl 51 Quick Hitters: Patriots holding as 3-point chalk

 

The New England Patriots aim to secure their fifth championship during head coach Bill Belichick’s time on the sidelines. Tom Brady is also afforded the opportunity to write more Super Bowl records. Super Sunday finds New England holding serve as the opening 3-point favorites with the over-under in SB51 sitting at 59, this at William Hill of the U.S.

The league is making it confusing for those of us that make mention of the biggest football game of the year. After clearly stating that the Super Sunday event would go from roman numerals for the first 49 years to last year being branded as Super Bowl 50, the affair is back to its Roman numeral roots.

For those of you who were not inebriated for the entire two week build up to the game between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers “The Company”, the NFL, were persistent about using the number “50” following Super Bowl rather than the “L,” label. The league insisted that it was Super Bowl 50 and used a golden 50 in the game title.

This year, they have reverted back to the roman numbering system so you won’t see the company have any official memorabilia or ware sporting “51” but rather “LI” making it the first Super Bowl that has the letter “L”.

According to published reports the league has stated that it will continue to use roman numerals until Super Bowl XC which is Super Bowl 90. The league doesn’t want to confuse the brand and since the letter “X” has been used multiple times in Super Bowl IX bowls they will revert back to numbers when Super Bowl XC (Super Bowl 90) arrives. ,

Below are five “Quick Hits” for Thursday, February 2, 2017.
