    I dont know about anyone else, but going into a game when the Pats are favored, really worries me. Its something about being underdogs that makes me feel comfortable. In the past when we were underdogs we always seemed to get the best out of our team. They have something even harder to play for. Now being favorites by almost 9 points and most of the media picking the Pats to win, Im afraid that the Pats might go into this game to relaxed. That they might go into this game starting off flat and find themselves behind. I think the first quater of this game is going to tell the story for the next three. Whoever is winning after the first quarter is going to win. Who ever sets the tone and the gains the momentum on there side first. With the patriots being at home there should be no reason why they dont set the tone, but this is the NFL playoffs, and a Patriots crowd that can be very quiet after giving up a big play.

    After losing their last game against the Jets, they're going to come in hungry and angry, and not over confident due to being the favorite.

    What worries me is the Pats, as a complete team, have not played well in any home game this year.

    The score in the Houston game indicated blowout but the the Pats offense played poorly.

    I am really scared by this game - I would feel more comfortable on the road.

    Thats what does keep me positive. Sorry to be so doubtful, but i get like this around playoff time, and kind of look to deep into things.
