If memory serves me right,this was the last time the Patriots had a record BELOW .500 which is something I think is a record that the team will try thier best Sunday night to keep intact and growing. It's really amazing that it has been been nearly 10 years to the week that they have ever been under .500 and this gave at Baltimore to me is going to be the biggest test since 2002 to avoid it. That of course was the season after the SB that had the Pats still hot and at 3-0 until that very weird 4 game losing streak bringing them down to 3-4 and Then missed the postseason. This next weeks games loser does not end its season,nor is the winner guaranteed a playoff berth.......but I really would like to see that mark in 2002 remain alive after this week. How many teams can brag about this long a streak?......no other team that I know of...it's impressive.
