IT'S JUST NOT A SPORT YOU WANT TO OVERTHINK:

Patriots hold off Ravens 23-20 for AFC title (Robert Deutsch, 1/22/12, USA TODAY)

Usually, vintage Brady doesn't need much assistance in championship settings, but the Patriots much-maligned defense came through, and Brady's 1-yard touchdown dive with 11:29 left proved to be the winning points.

"Well, I sucked pretty bad today, but our defense saved us," Brady said after throwing for 239 yards, with two interceptions and, for the first time in 36 games, no TD passes. "I'm going to try to go out and do a better job in a couple of weeks, but I'm proud of this team, my teammates."

As everyone knew going in, if you have a great running game and good defense you can overcome some quarterback mistakes, even if the opposing qb is having a great game.
