In week 1, the bears beat the colts, the steelers beat the texans, ravens beat the bengals, the patriots beat the chiefs. The chiefs and texans might not be power house offense but the colts and the bengals sure can be. If you look at the stats, these winning QBs only got about 150 yards total, but still won, so their defense won games. So if the patriots defense holds up well this season, then, a well prepared no experienced matt cassel can take the patriots into the playoffs. And once you're in the playoffs who knows what can happen? Now this is just week one, but if this trend keeps up through out the season, I like our chances of going to the playoffs.
