OK the Jags didn't put up much of a fight but, a very nice win by the Pats.
Best win of the year. Solid in all phases of the game. Love the clock-killing drive at the end --- reminds me of pre-2007 Pats..
It was a good win, proud of them for winning and not rolling over....I had my fears going into this thing. Think they shoujld have thrown into the ez on the last play instead of another run.
Houston will be a real test in Houston. They're a good team. That should be exciting.
Then onto the playoffs. Hopefully our negatives have been fixed...and we will go far.
The pats were very sharp today, one of their better games this year.
Outstanding game. Congratulations to the AFC East champs!
Were there any injuries, for those who watched the game?
afc east champs!
yeah..Jack Del Rio's feelings
Bruised vajayjay, probable return next season.
Great clock killing drives in the second half.
The scoreboard only shows 7 points but the last drive of over 11 minutes was freakin awesome. Way to close out a game!!!
4th Quarter... 12:41 remaining. Patriots take over on their own 20.
Result: 20 plays, 73 yards, 12 minutes 12 seconds
THAT, is Patriot football my friends. I'm smelling a little bit of a killer instinct brewing.
Vollmer at RT from here on out, send Nick to the glue factory and I like our chances.
He did look good but let's be honest here, he got a lot of help in the blocking game. Both by Baker and Watson. I've been as critical of Kaczur as anybody, especially with Neal being out. But Vollmer wasn't exactly dominating all on his own.
So I take it nobody left with injuries... how did Neal/Warren look?
No one has asked BB about Maroney yet
The whole O-Line looked better with Neal in it, of course. Both guys were subbed in and out though. Neal was going in and out with Connolly and Warren didn't even start. Just spelled Wright at times. I'd like to see both of the sit next week at Houston.
Even though the score doesn't reflect it, there was no second half letdown this week. The Pats did what they wanted on offense. Two long drives that took up most of the second half.
And with Kaczur out.
Did Brady get sacked today? having Neal in there certainly helped, but having Vollmer in for Kazcur made a big difference as well. Thats the O-line I want to see in the playoffs.
Oh, and I thought Connoly did really well as the fullback in the heavy package.
The game today would seem to lend some support to this CHFF article (posted here by another poster earlier this week).
