    Anything can happen in the NFL, but with three straight Division games coming up, the Patriots have an opportunity to pull away from the pack, fall behind or muddy the waters of the AFC East even more than they are now.

    How many games out of the next three do you expect the Patriots to win and why?

    Nov 9 - vs. Buffalo, 1:00 PM ET
    Nov 13 - vs. NY Jets, 8:15 PM ET
    Nov 23 - at Miami, 1:00 PM ET

    Hopefully 3-0. It would be our first three game winning streak of the year.

    Gut feeling 2-1.

    Pats beat Bills, Bills are just to banged up.

    Jets beat Pats, because ESPN has the Jets ranked above the Pats. And the Jets are currently in 1st place in the AFCE.

    Fish beat Pats, For whatever reason the Fish always play excellent against the Pats.

    Pats Beat Bills, yes.

    Short Week - edge Pats, Favray is gonne be stumbling around on the short week, Cassel will be ready to bring a beating.

    Vs Dolphins after a long week of watching an epic beatdown. Revenge at it's finest. We'll not only win, but we'll blow them out.

    Seems like most of us are in the "3-0 would be godly, but see us dropping one" boat.

    If anything I expect them to beat the Bills given the Bills extensive injuries.

    The Fins certainly humiliated them earlier this season and appeared to have their number - but contrary to what some think, this team responds well to adversity. I expect them to split the series.

    Splitting the series with the Jets wouldn't be shocking to me seeing as they spent $140 million in the offseason and the Patriots are without their starting QB, RB, S and thin at other positions as well. If the Jets can't beat the Patriots now they will never beat them.

    NO WAY this team wins all 3 games,especially a short week between the games - Its 2-1 or 1-2 - I say its a win in Miami but a loss to either the Jets or Bills

    0-3 is not very likely but is more possible than 3-0 especially with all the injuries at CB and RB

    2-1 it should be in best case scnerio

    morris should be back soon and that will make the running game even better, yet opening up more options for matt and the passing game. i think if the pats are going to win the east they have to win the next two, maybe three games

    There's no reason they can't win all three. if they have no major injuries.
    I'm hoping Morris and/or Jordan will be back after this week.

    With some power running and Matt Cassel's maturity and the set of
    receivers PATs have they should be able to score 20 to 30 points on any of
    these teams.

    With PATs D starting to really come together in the run D especially
    they should be able to keep any of these three teams to 20 or less.
    They kept Colt to less than 20 they should keep the next three teams to
    less than twenty.
    BB had his one brain fart game for the season ... don't see him doing it
    3-0 ... Believe!

    And the Pats aren't banged up?

    I thought real hard and I honestly see them going 3-0. No way they get swept by the Dolphins. I think they learned a lot from that first meeting. If they do lose a game it'll be to the Jets.

    I totally disagree that 0-3 is more likely than 3-0. When was the last time the Pats lost two in a row, nevermind three? The Jets have same short week the Pats have when they meet on Thursday. The short week is irrelevant to the game tomorrow.

    The Bills have more issues than the Pats right now with five starters already out and possibly two more out come game time. They have also lost three of four in their last four games

    The Jets haven't been playing well over the last month. Yes, they beat the Bills pretty handily (although they were without a lot of starters including Marshawn Lynch for three quarters which made their offense one-dimensional), but they lost the Raiders, were one minute away from losing to the Chiefs, and struggled to beat the Bengals. Favre has turned over the ball eight times in those four games and I wouldn't consider the Chiefs' or Bengals' secondaries any better than the Pats.

    Miami actually scares me the most of the three, but I am guessing they will not surprise the Pats like they did in September. The Pats will be playing for revenge and Belichick's record of playing teams the second time around in a season is outstanding. Plus, Belichick and staff will have three extra days to prepare for the Fins.

    I think 3-0 is very realistic. I think 2-1 is likely. I think the Pats win the next two and the Dolphins game is a toss up. I think the Pats are gaining a lot of confidence and swagger even in the loss to the Colts. Trent Edwards, Brett Favre, and Chad Pennington are not Peyton Manning. Pennington isn't a great down the field passer, Favre makes a lot of mistakes (8 INTs in the last four weeks), Edwards has struggled in recent weeks (thrown for 2 TDs and 3 INTs in the last four games).

    People are far too focused on the Pats deficiencies and not the other teams. Until the Jets beat the depleted Bills team last week, most people had them in the bottom third of the league and some have jumped them into the top ten based on one game. The Bills are the worst shape in terms of number of injuries with the potentially seven starters out tomorrow. The Dolphins have played well, but lost to teams like the Texans in recent weeks. They are not perfect.

    The Patriots will beat the Jets and win the division. I dont see the Patriots losing to any of those team. I will admit now Cassel has turned into a much better qb then I thought he would be. Maybe the Patriots should sign him? I guess that depends on how Brady is doing. Bradys cap next year is 14 million. You really cant keep Cassel and Brady. I am sure Cassel will want to start and get big money. Maybe the Patriots trade Brady? I know that sound nuts but a 14 million dollars cap hit is alot. If Brady is not on the opening day lineup what is his cap hit for 2009?

    Thursday's game is HUGE!!

    Very encouraging performance by the secondary which was my main concern heading into this stretch. Hopefully it wasn't just because of Buffalo having 1 good reciever.

    Never was that concerned about the run game. I said it before I'll say it again, BJGE CAN carry the load when given the opportunity.

    Cassel looking good again aside from one bad play. We are in good shape despite all the injuries.
