In the first two weeks of the season: The Pats clobbered the Bengals. The Bengals beat the Ravens. The Ravens beat the Jets. The Jets clobbered the Pats. That's enough to prove that none of those four teams will win the Super Bowl unless, early next year and most likely indeed later this season, it does some things better than it has been doing them in the first half of September. But if it proves much else, that much else is eluding me.
