    Before the season started their were a lot of doubts and concerns about how the first four games would pan out, no Brady, no Gronk, most of us were hoping for a 2-2 start at best but Jimmy during his short stint ran the table for us helped us start 2-0, then the unthinkable happened, we shut out Houston, the Bills game was just sloppy all around. What I learned from the 1st 3 games is that considering the circumstances this team has the heart of a champion to pull off what they did, then Brady returns, Gronk returns to form and TB12 starts playing the best football of his career and tables start getting smashed ran and broken. Jamie Collins gets traded, concerns about our defense begin, we trade for a guy who was considered a draft bust Kyle Van Noy (We saw how that turned out f*cking Bill is incredible). Then the Seattle game, seemed like we had everthing going for us then Gronk gets shaking up and Brady almost gets his ACL torn. Winds up being a little wobbly for the next 2 weeks, our defense is playing suspect, Gronk gets taken out and seemed like another lost season was on the way. We performed well against the Rams but hardly a proving point for how we would fare against a playoff team then next on the schedule is Baltimore and the concerns begin a game everyone expected to be close, big worrys about how our defense would perform, our test against an actual team not having Gronk on our side and what happens? we proved that we have a championship offense we can win a Super Bowl with and a championship defense we can win a Super Bowl with. What last night showed is that we are built and prepared on all fases of the game minus the return situation, and at this point we just have to stay healthy thats our only concern at this point. We will get the 1st seed trust and believe, if our defense pretty much shut down the Ravens offense (take away the return fumbles) then Denver has very little chance on offense to truly pressure our defense, so at this point we are in the driver seat, and no worries about the Jets at home the following week, the last time Brady lost to the Jets at home in the regular seaso was 2006 and hopefully we have the 1st seed clinched by week 17 so we can rest our starters especially Bennett, all in all I'm officially convinced we are witnessing another championship season in the making and the drive for

    If I stay healthy and get home field advantage, we make it to SB.

    As for the thread? Pittsburgh (should they get in) and Kansas City are the two teams in the AFC that could give this team a serious run for their money. HFA is a must. The Pats have to win out. Luckily, they are much healthier than they were at this time last year and have the pieces in place to take the next three. Denver in Denver will still be a test.

    HFA is a must. I think if Pats get 2 of the last 3, it will clinch it for them.

    If they have a solid outing next week @ Denver, I will feel really good about them. Baltimore was a good test, but Denver is better than them. Before last night Pats have been playing pretty bad teams.

    Nope, too late, we're not taking any chances. We're wrapping you in plastic until the playoffs are over.

    Another w, and iirc no more injuries last night. Thats what matters.

    Until midway through the third we were absolutely brilliant in all 3 phases. Would been more pretty without the to's obviously, I think the offense and defense both lost a bit of their edge after the fumbles while balt gained confidence, otherwise its probably 37-0 or something and we look pretty flawless on both sides imo. But hopefully we'll save our peak for the playoffs.

    Gronk gets taken out and seemed like another lost season was on the way."

    I couldn't disagree with this sentence more.

    Plays bothered me most last night was
    1) Cyrus Jones not fighting for the ball after it hit his leg. He just gave up on that
    2) Brady's bone-headed interception. He always has an INT like that in big games like this.

    Initial reaction of losing Gronk for the rest of season isn't easy to swallow at first

    I don't think they have to win out: if they win in Denver Sunday its almost in the bag. The Jets already mailed it in the Miami game might be an Extra Bye week if we win our next two. I don't want the Miami game being a Must win Game then I would worry. Again if the Pats win in Denver I think they clinch a Bye and the Jets Game will be for HFA throughout.

    If the Chiefs and Raiders win out, we can lose one game and still get home field advantage.

    If the Chiefs lose, but the Raiders win out, then we have to win out, because the tiebreaker structure changes. It's a little weird. But root for the Chiefs!

    I also agree that we (I?) need to stay healthy. We are the best team out there right now as constructed, but can't really afford to lose anyone.

    No, not necessarily. If Oak and NE are tied at the end of the season, Oak has the tie breaker. We have to hope for another Oakland loss. Interestingly enough, if NE, KC and Oak are tied at 13-3 then NE gets the tiebreaker.

    Holy wall of text, Batman!

    You greatly overestimate my attention span, good sir. My brain requires the return key!
