Re: Patriots could put more distance between them & all other AFC East teams this wee

Taking a look at the East games this week...
Buffalo at Carolina - I think Buffalo put everything on the line last week to keep Jauron as HC for at least a few more weeks and gain some ground in the east standings but playing in Carolina is usually a tough place to win for mediocre to poor teams and since Buffalo is mediocre I say Carolina pulls it out - Carolina 17 Buffalo 14
New Orleans at Miami - Some think the Wildcat which Miami will need to work to stay in this game is going to help and it probably will keep Brees off the field a little longer than normal but the only problem is everytime Brees and his group get on the field they will score - The Saints look as unstoppable as a team I think we can all recall that looked the same way for 16 games in 2007 for that one team I can barely recall
- New Orleans 30 Miami 21
New York Jets at Oakland - I don't think the Jets are bad enough to keep losing and I cetainly don't think the Raiders are good enough to win 2 games in a row,Thomas Jones was a stud against the Raiders last season,this could be close for 3 quarters but - Jets 27 Raiders 10
As I said if the Pats have no turnovers they should win by about 21 and the Jets are the only team I can see staying on pace with the Pats, but there is that chance that the Pats can pull another game away just as well if the Raiders defense stays on course...should be fun to watch!
I think all three of those games could go either way, but it is a bit hard for me to imagine Mia beating NO. Car seems eratic and Buf is Buf. I wouldn't put a lot of my own money on that. Seems like the Jets should beat the Raiders, but the Raiders did just beat Phi and the Jets are on a 3 game skid, so stranger things have happened.
Because I believe Mia is our biggest threat right now, I am pretty confident that this weekend will help us as we win and Mia loses. If the jets and/or Buf lose as well, then that is just icing on the cake.
