I am so sick and tired of reading the national media pieces on how badly the Cardinals played. Its exactly the opposite. The Patriots played great in terrible conditions. They executed a great game plan, played inspired special teams and shut down the vaunted Cardinals offense. Would anyone expect the Cardinals to run the ball 8 straight times ... No, but the Patriots were ready to make the adjustment. The Pats threw up 47 points in the middle of a snow storm. They scored on 9 of the first 10 possesions. Over 500 yards in total offense. Nobody wants to play the Patriots in the playoffs!
