The New England Patriots are playing the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship game. Regardless of the outcome of the game, Patriots owner Robert Kraft thinks this group is already special.

“We’ve had some wonderful experiences and some wonderful teams, but this team really is super-special,” Kraft said, via Christopher Gasper of the Boston Globe. “When you go through the locker room, you can get a feeling for the chemistry, how guys feel about one and another, the camaraderie.

“This team really reminds me of that 2001 team, a lot of players who weren’t household names, but they bonded together. They weren’t the best team on paper. But it’s not the team with the most talent, but rather the team that has the players who play the best together as a team and make the fewest mistakes.”

Of course, they would feel a lot more special if they managed to win the Super Bowl.
