Samsonite Make Your Case: Who's ready to break out?
The Patriots hope to have a relatively healthy roster at their disposal when the playoffs begin next week, and assuming that's the case New England should have every opportunity to defend its title. In order for that to happen, the team will likely need significant contributions from at least one or two players that fans aren't necessarily expecting them from.
Last season, of course, Malcolm Butler became the mother of all breakout stars with his brilliant interception to win the Super Bowl. While it's unrealistic to expect another effort of that magnitude from such an unlikely source, the Patriots do have some candidates to fill the role of breakout performer this time around as well.
The injuries have given opportunities to many players throughout the season and it would not be shocking to see someone like James White or Akiem Hicks turn in a strong postseason and help the Patriots win a game. With that in mind, this week's Samsonite Make Your Case question is: Who will be the breakout performer for the Patriots this postseason? Read
