    I saw a mention elsewhere of an article on Yahoo predicting the best and worst games of each week of the 2009 season, so I thought while we're waiting for the draft that I too would take a stab at the NFL's best and worst games this year.

    In case you don't want to click on the link above, the column lists the Pats four times:
    • as the best game Sept 27 versus Atlanta: "Former Patriots personnel man and current Atlanta GM Thomas Dimitroff brings his team, led by former Boston College QB Matt Ryan, to face the mighty Pats. Assuming Tom Brady is healthy, this could be really fun."
    • as the worst game October 25th versus Tampa Bay: "Bill Belichick isn’t a man who believes much in sympathy, which is going to mean a long, ugly day for Bucs rookie coach Raheem Morris and the defense he’s rebuilding."
    • as the best game December 6th at Miami: "Either the Dolphins are going to be in the race for the AFC East, and this will be a good game or they will have switched to second-year quarterback Chad Henne over Chad Pennington. Under either scenario, it will be fun to watch how they matchup with the Patriots."
    • as the best game December 13th versus Carolina: "Call this one the Julius Peppers Bowl. Either Peppers will be playing for a team he wants to be with (the Patriots), or he’ll be playing for the team that can’t afford to let him go (the Panthers)."
    The biggest question I have, is how could any NFL fan not list the Colts-Pats in a list of the best games of the week for the 2009 season?

    Okay, here are my off-the-cuff, slightly biased selections:
