Patriots Repeat As Champs; Eagles Finish 3rd

The New England Patriots, which finished the regular season ranked No. 2 in the Dunkel Index, defeated Philadelphia (24-21) to win Super Bowl XXXIX for their third championship in four years.  The Patriots had little problem with the top-ranked Colts in the second round of the playoffs, shutting down Peyton Manning and the Colts’ offense en route to a 20-3 win.  The loss dropped Indianapolis to No. 2 in Dunkel’s final rankings.  New England then demolished No. 4 Pittsburgh on the road in the AFC Championship before upending the Eagles in Jacksonville.  Philadelphia’s playoff wins over Minnesota and Atlanta, combined with a solid performance in the Super Bowl, were good enough to put the Eagles at No. 3.   Here are the complete Dunkel NFL rankings for 2004 season.

Patriots Win Second Super Bowl In Three Years

The New England Patriots completed their improbable run with a 32-29 win over Carolina in Super Bowl XXXVIII and locked up the top spot in the Dunkel Index for the second time in three years. The Patriots bounced back from a disappointing 2002 and a sluggish 2-2 start to 2003 by winning its last 15 games. No team since the 1972 Miami Dolphins had done that. And perhaps befitting the ’72 Dolphins, these Patriots were made up mostly of no-name players. Their final rating of 136.5 was not high by historical standards (for example, the Bucs finished at 141.3 the year before). But the Patriots did just enough to win, whether it be a 17-14 defensive struggle over Tennessee in the playoffs or a 32-29 shootout over Carolina in the Super Bowl. Here’s the final ratings for the 2003 season.

Bucs Can’t Be Stopped; Claim 1st Championship

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers shed their image as a team that couldn’t win the big game by soundly defeating the Oakland Raiders, 48-21, to win Super Bowl XXXVII in San Diego. The Bucs entered the game hot off their upset 27-10 victory at Philadelphia in the NFC Championship. Tampa kept the momentum going by jumping out to a 34-3 lead over the Raiders and MVP QB Rich Gannon. Dexter Jackson earned the game’s MVP by twice picking off Gannon. The Bucs capped their first championship by returning two interceptions for TDs in the fourth quarter. Here’s the complete rankings from the 2002 season.
