In this week’s edition of “Nobody Likes the New England Patriots,” we here are SB Nation polled all of our audiences to get their take on the remaining four teams in the NFL playoffs.
The question asked was “Which team do you most want to lose this weekend?”
Guess which team was the overwhelming...uh...winner?
- New England Patriots: 69.4%
- New Orleans Saints: 11.9%
- Kansas City Chiefs: 9.9%
- Los Angeles Rams: 8.8%
YIKES. The hatred is real.
I’m rooting for a Patriots-Saints Super Bowl, which only 12.3% of those polled listed as the Super Bowl 53 matchup they most wanted to see. A mere 4.6% are hoping for a Patriots-Rams Super Bowl.
On the other end of the spectrum, 41.9% say they want a Chiefs-Saints game and 41.2% want a Chiefs-Rams game.
We can use the figures to determine which teams fans want in the Super Bowl, and 83.1% want the Chiefs, versus 16.9% for the Patriots. Roughly 54.2% of fans want the Saints in the Super Bowl and 45.8% want the Rams in the Super Bowl, so the NFC is much more evenly split than the AFC.
That’s okay, though. Fans have rooted against Tom Brady and company for years. Hopefully the Patriots will make 83.1% of fans upset with the result of the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.
