Lets hear your feedback.
Besides Kontra's spot on answer....
Panthers..only because Denver is a home game for Pats and TB doesn't lose at the Razor too often.
Did we go back in time? Is it August again?
I get the reference, obviously at this point the outlook has changed as has the landscape in terms of the opponents. No one expected Carolina to be a defensive powerhouse, etc. so now that we're at the halfway point I can see the relevance to this question.
That being said I expect Carolina, Denver, and the second meeting with Miami to be the toughest. Although the Browns are playing well too as of late. All of these will be big in terms of playoff seeding, so it's going to be an interesting seven games coming up.
Now Dennard not seen at practice.
Injuries 10 Pats 0
Let's hope it's not serious.
The Super Bowl.
Offensively Carolina is the biggest challenge, defensively it's a toss up, i would have said the Bronco's but i have serious questions about Manning's ankle and how it is going to effect him going forward, so with that in mind i will say that the Saints were the biggest challenge for their defense.
Watching the neverending "analysis" about Manning and his injury problems i felt like they were all missing the key point. While pretty much all of the talking heads I saw were saying that Manning's injury won't be that big a deal because he was never a mobile QB, I think the real point is that his arm strength is a fraction of what it once was and not being able to really plant and push off is going to make it much worse. While he is still as smart as they come at QB and still incredibly precise and accurate, he has nothing on those throws, he is tossing duck after duck after duck, and if he has to rely solely upon his arm strength to carry him the rest of the way when he can't push off he is going to be in big trouble. It would be one thing if he could simply wing it without having to use his lower body but he can't, and while i felt like it would take some wind and bad weather to cause him real problems now I think that it won't even take that much, and he is going to have one of the worst stretches of his career over the course of the rest of this season. We'll see if he can successfully play through this but I seriously doubt it.
You may be right, but i would add the Saints in the Super Bowl. If so it will be a great SB that will go right down to the wire.
Not if there is some weather.
I disagree, Brees will always be tough no matter the conditions.
GTFO if you're saying Carolina
The next one...
Jesus. If Jesus wants the Pats to win, they will win.
Weâ€™ve struggled this season against torrential rain and poor officiating.
If youâ€™re talking in terms of an actual NFL team I think the biggest challenge we will face this season will be the Colts in the AFC Championship game.
Personally think the Chiefs, Bengals and Broncos are all better than the Colts.
I donâ€™t disagree with that with the exception of the Broncos getting knocked off in the division round by the Colts. This is my vision, I think the Colts are a young team with a lot of talent and they play erratic that is a scary in my opinion.
Colts defeat Jets
Chiefs defeat Bengals
Patriots defeat Chiefs
Colts defeat Broncos
Great to see all the comments and read all the different perspectives.
probably the bengals. i suspect we won't get offensively going against that strong defense and the weather will play a huge factor
afterwards, the entire messageboard will want us to tank rest of the games because we wont be competitive anymore and hopefully get a good draft pick to probably replace brady.
