    If they get Hogan, White, and Burkhead back then I expect the same Brady we saw when they were healthier. A top tier QB leading them to big wins, just as he always has.

    I hope he lights them up and silences the media.
    But ultimately, the only thing that matters is a W.

    Well, Brady's average performance in the regular season this year was ...

    66.3% completions, targeting 9 different players
    286 yds
    7.9 yds/attempt
    2 TDs
    0.5 int
    2.1 sacks

    The Pats were 4-2 this season when Brady's completion percentage fell below 66%. The two losses were KC in wk-1 (44%) and @.MIA in wk-14 (56%). The Pats lost one game - CAR in wk-4 - when Brady exceeded his average numbers.

    A (possibly) interesting, Gronk-related tidbit ...

    Brady played two games this season without Gronk and one in which Gronk was (perhaps deliberately) not targeted.

    1) WIN - @TBY (wk-5) - the TNF game that Gronk couldn't quite get healthy for (thigh bruise). Hogan was healthy, Burkhead was OUT (ribs), Lewis was still working back toward 100%.
    ... 30/40 (75%) to 7 different receivers, 303 yds (8.6 ypa), 1 TD, 1 INT, 3 sacks
    ... RBs caught 9/11 for 67 yds
    ... ground game contributed 113 yds
    ... Offense put up 19 points, 23 1st downs, 4/12 on 3rd down.

    2) LOSS - @.MIA (wk-14) - Gronk suspended, Hogan not anywhere near 100%, Brady's 3rd game with his Achilles issue.
    ... 24/43 (56%) to 8 different receivers, 233 yds (5.4 ypa), 1 TD, 2 INT, 2 sacks
    ... RB caught 13/14 for 106 yds
    ... ground game contributed 25 yds and a TD
    ... Offense put up 20 points, 14 1st downs, 0/11 on 3rd down.

    3) WIN - NYJ (wk-17) - Hogan OUT, Burkhead OUT, White OUT, Gillislee OUT, Gronk not targeted.
    ... 18/37 (49%) to 9 different receivers, 195 yds (5.1 ypa), 2 TDs, 0 INT, 2 sacks
    ... RBs caught 7/11 for 47 yds
    ... ground game contributed 147 yds and a TD
    ... Offense put up 24 points, 28 1st downs, 4/15 on 3rd down.

    So, if the Titans can keep both Gronk and Hogan completely bottled up, and stuff the Pats ground game for the full 60 minutes, and get 1-2 turnovers, they have a chance of keeping the Pats score down to 24 points or less.

    And then, they have to score more than that. They've scored less than 19 points 7 times this season, and 24 or more only 5 times.

    I think Brady is going to play really well this week. He got some extra rest and a chance to really self scout. He will be on fire.

    Brady will do whatever is necessary, that's my expectation. Hand the ball off 30 times, throw 50 times, a combination, he'll do and execute whatever that's needed to win.

    If he's healthy my expectation is that the Pats will win.

    If he's not my expectation is the Pats will lose at some point in this run.

    I don't think it matters much if he is healthy today or not for the outcome of this game. If he isn't healthy today today that's a bad sign though. Maybe they can still beat Pitt and given another week he will be good. If he's hurt in the super bowl I don't like their odds though.

    I would like to see Britt make a play or two. Having another big size wr along with gronk would be good for this offense.

    I loved seeing Von Miller get his ass handed to him on the Patriots sidelines. :p

    I am expecting them to come out on fire and think we will see some different style plays (my opinion is that they are purposely limiting the creativity with offensive plays, esp to cooks. Don't know enough about defense to comment. No sources or information to back up these "thoughts").
