Prior to today, the Patriots defense had not scored for 26 games. A rather amazing streak. The official records of the NFL will say that the streak continued today -- for the 27th game. But that's only due to a merciful decision by Gene Steratore not to award a clear safety and the Patriots' disinterest in challenging. As far as I'm concerned, the streak ends at 26. It's a minor point, but I'm really not a fan of that type of officiating. I realize people were cold and it was probably a result that both teams favored. But the offical's job is to call the game in front of him. Not the game he wishes were in front of him.
