    Whoever shows up in Foxboro for the first playoff game will, by definition, be on a one-game playoff winning streak. In addition:

    Ravens
    -- A year ago they clobbered the Patriots here in the playoffs. Now they're back. And by the way, when they lose to the Pats, it's usually in a game they might just as well have won.

    Jets -- They beat the Pats not that long ago.

    Colts -- Always a tough game for the Pats.

    Chiefs -- Coordinators and QB who know the Pats system cold. Likely to beat the Pats in Xs and Os preparation.

    Steelers, Chargers, and Raiders seem less likely to be the opponent, but we could make up reasons to worry about them too if we had to.

    The sky will fall! The sky will fall!

    Colts go 2-0 and the Chiefs lose next week and the Colts would be the #3 seed.

    Care to wager? I'll take the Pats against any team at home.

    I'll give you the ravens and the colts but your Jets and Chiefs reasons are bunk. We jsut clobbered the Jets only a few weeks ago and they have shown since that they are not all world. As for the Chiefs they are in the worst division in the AFC and its been 2 years since Cassel was here and 6 since the Coordinators. You dont think the schemes or system has changed since then? We'd be a 2 win team if that were the case.

    Very annoying post. How about letting us enjoy the win for a day before the bombarding us with downer parade.

    This team will be at home for two games.I am sure BB will have them ready and focus when it comes around.Last year people forget that Wes Welker was injured going into that ravens game.

    Pats are doomed any way you look at it. Well, it was a nice season anyway.

    Lets talk draft.

    Deion Branch
    Wes Welker
    Aaron Hernandez
    Rob Gronkowski
    BenJarvus Green-Ellis
    Danny Woodhead

    None of the above were playing in that game.

    Offense is a bit different now.

    It's always interesting to know that Belichick's old coaches and coordinators are always in his head and know his habits but Belichick doesn't know theirs...

    Basically, shut the hell up.

    I would hate to play the Chiefs to be honest. I'd rather have a team we've already seen this season. I feel like the Chiefs would be one of those teams like the Browns or Packers who would pull out any trick they have and throw it at the Pats.

    The Pats are playing at a high level. The defense seems to be coming together at the right time. The Razor is a great home field. NE can take on all comers.

    the cheifs are pretty simple team offensive wise, i wouldnt mind playing them at all, i think their our least of worries- Im wondering if bill will rest the players next week, my guess is he will play them for a quarter or half

    And yet, we beat three of those teams in the regular season and we'll play them at home.

    Let's stop being chicken littles for three weeks and enjoy the number one seed for a while, is that too much to ask?
