    Wow what a game. Havnt seen one that intense in a very long time. So happy they won this game.

    This is exactly the type if game we all wanted to know if they could win....a gritty hard fought dog fight. Sloppy play by the O and some poor tackling by the D.

    But in the end they pull a rabbit out. Vintage Brady baby! And give the D some serious credit! They played a hard 60 minutes. And other than the shoddy tackling they played a he'll of a game.

    Very proud to be a pats fan tonight! Pats are leading the AFCE once again. Everything is ok in the world again lol

    Felt like a playoff game. Great to see the team battle adversity late and come out on top.

    I don't know about a week off, but this has to be huge for their morale going into the bye week. What a win, D plays tough, and Offense goes clutch.

    Great way to head into the bye

    They did not earn a week off. Every team gets one. They could have lost by 30 and they still would get a bye week. You only earn a week off if you win enough games to get a bye in the playoffs. They did earn a few nice wins over the last three weeks though.

    It is a good time for a bye. Let's hope we can get healthy. I bet BB will have a lot for them to work on.

    I feel the same way. This was a refreshing win.

    Brady and the offense were held in check, we lost the turnover battle 4-2, we didnt tackle well at times, and we were facing a very potent offense that was fully healthy for the first time since about the 2nd quarter of Week 1.

    If you told me that was how the game was going to go before kickoff, I'd give us near 0% chance of a win. We found a way though. Defense made big stops and the offense put together one last drive when it looked like they couldn't get anything going.

    Great win, and hopefully one we can build on and one that makes this a better team come playoff time.
