One thing you have to love about Patriots fans is they are a pretty confident bunch.
Google Trends compiled data on how much people from each NFL city searched for flights to San Francisco around the time the Super Bowl would be played. Broncos fans were the most confident in their team, having the highest per capita search volume throughout the season. After them who else would it be but Patriots' fans? Man people in the New England area began searching for flights before it was set in stone. Hey, there's nothing wrong with believing in your team.
On the flip side of things, Charlotte came in sixth. Despite the team's amazing season, fans weren't that eager to pony up the funds for a flight out west.
Sometimes attending a Super Bowl party can be just as entertaining.
