    The Patriots enter their weekend of rest with a 5-2 record and the knowledge that, no matter what the outcome of Sunday’s Dolphins-Jets tilt, they will maintain first place in the AFC East.

    After two wins featuring all the competition of pumpkins taking on the ground, New England looks as strong as they have all year. That, of course, means little to the Worry Wart, especially with so many formidable opponents yet to play.

    Some other frets from Foxboro…

    Not saying that the Pats will sweep through these opponents easily. Just saying that this stretch isn't as dire as people make it out to be.

    I don't think it is DIRE, and I wouldn't say that most people think that, but I, and I am sure most people agree, that it is certainly a very important strecth of the season.

    Those stats are promising considering history, but every year is different, and so is every game.

    The next five games will define the season. If we limp through them we will have a hard time with the playoffs, but if we handle it well, I like our chances.
