Chicago has a good D. It's possible but my god they suck on O
As we all know, the game is essentially the NE O vs the BUF D. Our D will handle business accordingly; especially in a game of this magnitude.
Here’s What’s At Stake In Patriots’ Saturday Rematch Vs. Bills
Saturday is Hat & T-Shirt Day
Can you imagine if the Bills had used Gilmore correctly, re-signed him, and were now pairing him with White? Holy crap, what a secondary that would be. Would probably be the best 1-2 CB combo ever.
Since the CLE game (6 games) NE has averaged 20.3ppg. Their opponents have allowed 22ppg. Overall we are scoring 27 (which we all know we are not a 27ppg offense)
We can look the DAL game as being influenced by the weather and the robbery vs KC but it doesn't dispute the fact that opposing defenses tend to handle the Pats O.
NE typically keeps opponents 6 points less than their average.
BUF averages 21ppg and allows 16ppg
So if we believe in trends, NE will score 14 (or 21 if you go by the whole year) and BUF will score 15.
Basically, I believe that the Bills are HIGHLY likely to be the #5 seed....so if we lose vs. the Bills and beat the fish...we likely will be the #3 seed...meaning we would probably host the Steelers/Titans on wild card weekend...while the Bills go to Houston. Assuming, the Bills win in Houston on wild card weekend...our play-off path is likely Steelers/Titans, @KC, and @Baltimore...
I'd prefer to be the #2 seed and host KC, Houston, or the Bills at home on divisional weekend.
We need the BYE worst of any other team, IMO...especially with Edelman, Mason, Cannon, and J. Jones all hurt.....
Lawson is having a very good year
Isn’t the game in Foxborough?
I think he's taking that into account on the over/under, assuming some Bills fans will be in attendance.
Not surprising at all. I like it when we play them early in the year up there and they get all whooped up in a frenzy proclaiming "this is the year!"
Well, he's in his 4th year and does about 30 meaningless tackles and about 5 neaningless sacks per year.
I am sorry, but for 19th overall pick, that's beyond mediocre.
Tough game Saturday, if Brady posts his averages vs playoff teams this season on Sunday - 52.23% completions and 68.56 rating the Patriots will not win UNLESS they win the turnover battle and/or get some +50 field position. Brady cannot move the ball consistently...let's hope it changes Sunday
I am kind of getting a good vibe in a sense that I think NE's offense will break out even against Buffalo's D.
I think yesterday was encouraging, save for the slow start and some missed opps by Brady (Sanu in the end zone, etc).
IMO, there is too much untapped talent there.
All signs are pointing to a very low scoring game.
So it will probably be 34-31 or something.
I hear ya, but I would not take any chances and at least dress Edelman for that game in case I need him. Also, the game is in Foxboro...
I wish there was an alien emoji for masterpieces like that.
Which is more for the look of the brand than an allegiance for or against any particular team. Do I think he favors some teams and wants the Pats to make room for another winner? Absolutely. But I'm with you; if I thought there was any ACTIVE fixing going on, I'd be as interested in the NFL as I am in the WWE.
Perhaps a tinfoil hat emoji?
That makes it even more concerning
If the Patriots lose to the Bills, will Bill and Josh go out and sign Steven Jackson for the Miami game?
