I did notice this and it was confirmed by Michael Irvin when he said that this game showed more physical presence of the Patriots than they showed in years. I was hating the previous years when it looked like the team had gone soft and finesse like the Colts,but this years team if anything is more tough and physical and can go toe to toe with tough teams like the Ravens,Texans and 49ers. I thought we would lose this game and unfortunately I was right,what I didn't expect was to see a former finesse team look more tough and play like it. If they continue to be tough like they were tonight,the team won't be intimidated,especially on the road against tough nosed teams like the Ravens. On to Buffalo gentleman.....relax,more than half the league is 1 & 2,the team is not done yet.
