    I am very interested to see the adjustments made on both sides of the ball. The Patriots have one of the most flexible teams in the NFL, in terms of both offense and defense they can play almost any style.

    Offense - The past couple games Moss has been really slowed down, it will be interesting to see the adjustments to either free him up or spread the ball to other receivers. Against Philly Welker became the primary target, in the remaining games I would like to see Watson (hang onto the damn ball) and Stallworth (catch the ball with your hands!) or Maroney in the running game get additional looks. Optionally different formations, 3 WR bunches or crossing patterns could be used to free up Moss. As amazing as it sounds the offense can get even better.

    Defense - Played well in the 3-4, 4-3 and even in a hybrid against the Colts and Cowboys (Harrision as OLB). Time to get back to the basics and focus on fundamentals, I don't know how much different Tomlin is compared to Cowher but I expect the Steelers to pound the ball until they are stopped, mixing in Ward and the TEs to keep a balance. Subtle differences in technique and attitude, it will be interesting to watch.

    At this point the Patriots are just practicing and fine tuning for the playoffs. The game within the game will be interesting to watch, and the game is at 4:15! Yeah.
