    I say WILL because it is virtually impossible that they play a whole game
    without getting one first down.

    ". . . Did You Know, Part II: The Patriots enter today's game with 416 first downs. They need just one more to break the NFL record, set by the Saints in 2011."

    416 1st downs in 15 games is just about an average of 28 1st downs/game
    or an average of 7 1st downs per quarter!

    How good is has this offense been? That is about two(2) 1st downs per game more than the previous record!

    The first down record is cool. However some of these other records they are building data for make me sort of laugh.

    When the Patriots are playing in 25 degree whether and rush right 7 times,rush left 18 times, complete 15 passes to Welker, Gronkowski catches a td pass followed by Woodhead having 50 yards receiving, Brady has his hair parted to the side, BB wears his hoodie with 1 sleeve rolled up. They are 69-0.

    I really don't know what to think of all these records. I like it and then I don't. I want to win games, and all these offensive records make me think we're looking like the 2000s Colts and I'm not so sure I like that.

    Interesting weather 25 deg but sub 10 wind chill due to 20 mph + winds. Tough day to throw, will Mia really want to play in that weather?
