First, the average points scored by Pats and their opponents was 38-14. Patriots maintained it in the second game. The third game dropped this statistic to 38-12 (11.67), Patriots best this season. However, my worries are coming true. Patriots then were an even 37-12, an average differential drop of 1.33 points from the previous week. Now, at 36-13, a drop of 1.60 from the previous week. If the Patriots average score differential continues to drop by 1.33 to 1.60 points, the Patriots might not pull out a win 15 games from now, in preseason 2008.
