Just an interesting thought: when the Steelers threatened the Patriots' just established streak of 18 regular season wins, the Patriots were given the chance to derail the Steelers (and they did). So, I was wondering--might something like that happen this year? Right now, the Pats outright own the record for consecutive regular-season wins, at 19. The all-time record for games without defeat is 25, by the now-defunct Canton, OH team; the all-time record among extant franchises is 24 games, by the Bears (whom the Pats do not play this season). The Pats' home record stands at 11 games in a row; the franchise record is 21, which isn't even in the top three. Needless to say, this record is not in danger next year. But here's where the interesting stuff comes in: the Patriots also have a 10 game road streak. There have only been four streaks that are longer: three teams are tied at 11 games, while the record is 18 games . . . by San Francisco (who also had an 11-game road win streak). So, since if the Pats could tie that record next season, I'm going to go ahead and predict this: one of the Patriots' last two road games will be against San Francisco.
