MORSE: Patriots Schedule Analysis at the Quarter PolePaul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports

We are at the quarter pole of the season. The Patriots record wise are exactly where I expected them to be.  As a team they are far ahead of what I expected.  Despite a perfect game by Russell Wilson, the Pats should have won that game at the end.  Last week’s game vs the Chiefs was also winnable, with the defense holding the vaunted Chiefs offense to 20 points.  Lets look at the next four games on the Patriots schedule.

Week 5 Sun 10/11 4:25  10/12 TBD vs Denver – As of this writing the game is still on.  Stephon Gilmore is now on the COVID list.  They are severely handicapped going into this game, but may have both Gilmore and Cam Newton back.  The Patriots are coming off a short week because they were forced to play on Monday night.  They had to travel cross country and the Patriots put in a 22 hour work day.  Looks like Wed, Thurs and Friday practices may be cancelled due to COVID 19.  The game has been pushed to Monday night.  Despite all this I expect the Patriots to win this game no matter who is at Quarterback.  The Patriots are the better team in all three phases of the game.

10/18  BYE

10/25 Sun 4:25 vs SF  – The 49’ers have had a rash of injuries to start the season including Jimmy G.  They are 2-2 but have lost both home games, and won both road games against the lowly NY teams.  They are getting Raheem Mostert and George Kittle back.  They have always been a pretty good defensive team.  This should be a big test for the Pats but I expect them to come out on top.

11/1 Sun 1:00 @ Buffalo – This is the game of the decade for the Bills.  The Bills Mafia will be frothing from the mouth for days leading up to this game.  Sorry Jills, they will be exposed for the frauds they are.  Who have they beat … it’s a lot like the Patriots schedule to start last season.  They are playing the little sisters of the poor.  The Patriots defense is top 5 in the league.  Belichick has done a masterful job with this group and they will only get better as the season goes along.  Two dropped interceptions and a blown Interception by the officials and the Pats beat the Chiefs.

11/9 Mon 8:15 @ NY Jets – They are a disaster.   Enough said.  The Jets will give them a hard time, they always do, but they don’t have the horses to hang with the Pats.  That’s a 4 game win streak and puts them right back in the thick of the playoff race and probably atop of the AFC east.
