I think it'll be interesting to see, and maybe determinative of the season. This team has thrived under Belichick in never getting too high/too low. They've been the pretty much perfect combination of playing with precision, and passion. Now all of the fans, all of us, will be full-throttle Sunday, of course. But will the Pats be drained from this, will they be sky-high, or what? I'm honestly not sure--I'm just hoping they maintain the focus that they need. The reason this seems important to me is that this team is stacked......if they are able to block out everything from this week, if they are able to beat what is obviously one of the top couple teams in the league, then watch out.
