Let's repeat this 10 times every day. Let's try to understand what it means to be a team NOT in this situation. Let's remember the patriots teams that weren't close to this situation. I know this is new ground for some of you. We've lost two of our games to 12-0 teams. It is new ground for everyone. Yes, we might have one a couple of more game. We certainly might have lost the Buffalo game. Brady is coming back from a serious injury and has been dinged a couple of more times. The defense is being almost completely overhauled. And yet, we are a lock if we win out. We will very likely win the division even if lose one game, and possibly if we lose 2. We may be in the playoffs, even at 9-7, especially if we beat the jags and the bills. ===================================================== This is NOT a terrible spot to be in.
