    2001, Week 3 vs. Indy - Bledsoe out, Brady comes in, spanks the high-flying Colts 44-13
    2003, Week 2 at Philly - Pats lose Milloy to Buffalo, then get pounded 31-0 by the Bills - next week Pats destroy Eagles 31-10
    2004, Week 16 at NYJ - Pats meltdown against 2-10 Fins on MNF 29-28, come back and pound the playoff-bound Jets 23-7
    2006, Week 2 at NYJ - Pats trade Branch to Seattle earlier in the week, go up 24-0 on the NYJ before holding on 24-17
    2007, Week 2 vs SD - Spygate breaks earlier in the week, hungry SD team comes to Foxboro for a nationally-televised game, gets eaten alive 38-14

    If there is any type of game Belichick's Pats thrive in, it is THIS type of game coming up Sunday. Of course this would be the ultimate "rally" win if they pull it off without Brady.

    The trend is your friend......

    Last year's Charger's game was my favorite of all those "rally" games.

    I have a good feeling I'll have a new favorite this Sunday.

    Go Pats!!

    There was also the game after that slanderous Tomase article came out.

    On second thought, never mind.

    It was all speculation at the time. People just jumped on it because the Pats had already been busted.

    the defense will rise to the challenge and fold Favre into a new shape.

    Cassels and the offense will put enough points on the board for the win.

    Great post. This certainly falls into the category of rally game. I'd hate to bet against this bunch. They're going to come out FLYING!!!

    Wasn't the Pitt game where both of your starting corners went down? There was alot of concern since that game, but rookie Randall Gay, if memory serves, stepped in and played very well.
