The media talk about what team could run the table, which team is the one to beat, eight or ten games in then have this conversation. I get tired of it, too! Around here, it is the Cardinals getting hyped, they are the team to beat, Packers defense is still bad, blah, blah, blah!
We'll get to see what happens when Green Bay travels to Arizona for week 16....as of right now that game is going to be massive.

if brady keeps playing in psycho brady mode,,,,then there is over a 50% chance they will go 16-0

the pats of a few years ago would play down to a weaker team

but tom,,,bill and the rest of them are playing so intensely,,,,,they are an offensive juggernaut on a mission..

keep brady pumped up,,,do a better job at cornerbacks....and pats will be playing the packers in the superbowl



brady is the best ever..... and he still isn't done..

There's a reason that undefeated happens only once every few decades, and that's that good just isn't enough - a team simply needs to get some serious breaks.

Do the math. Assume that New England has a 90% chance of winning every game from here on. Individually, yeah, the odds of winning each of those games are excellent - 9 out of 10 times. But like I said, do the math and a 90% chance of winning each individual one of the 13 remaining games only ends up equaling a 25% chance of going 16-0. And they'll have precious few games - maybe 2 or 3 - where a single game's odds are that good. You have to bump the chances of winning every game individually up to 95% before going 16-0 becomes an even proposition. And less face it, no team's chances of winning a single NFL game are every as bad as 1 in 20.

Look at all the great NFL teams that have taken the field since the NFL expanded its schedule to 16 games. All the great 49ers and Bears and Cowboys and Steelers and Packers and Broncos and Giants and Patriots teams over those years. NFL teams have combined to play precisely 1049 16-game regular seasons since then - only 6 of those teams (the 1974 49ers, the 1985 Bears, the 1998 Vikings, the 2004 Steelers, the 2007 Patriots and the 2011 Packers) have even managed seasons of one loss. That's barely one-half of one percent of all team seasons played.

This is not an anti-Patriots observation - it's just a little bit of reality.

The thing they continue to have going for them right now is the schedule. There are a couple of games that will be intriguing Giants and Bills probably. And the Denver game they might actually be under dogs in. Everything else could be a three TD victory or better.

I know any given Sunday, but this really is the best chance a team has had in a while. Even though Brady is older, he is probably better than 2007 Brady.

It amazes me that all these other teams know, KNOW that bashing Tom Brady only makes him impossible to beat. Yet, they keep going on and on dissing him before every game. Look what happened when Rex Ryan opened his pie hole before playing the Pats..now I hear that Dallas is treating the PAts like spygate happened last week. Keep it up..

Amazes me, Pats don't need so called bulletin board material, teams do it anyway! I find it amusing because players pile on Aaron, too and I'm thinking, don't make the man mad, don't do it! Still hoping Pats and Pack SB!

Just another win. Was not as close as the score indicated, But, we let them get 27 and they were in the game albeit by a thread. I feel like this team should score 50 every time out, and that tonight they left too many points behind.

Ahh, the life of a Patriots fan. We need something to complain about, like how to do better next week. The "other" 31 teams fans still harp on some soft footballs and video taping. I pretty much look at every other team and think yup, we're better than them. Still though, much respect to the other undefeated teams.

Every win is a big win in the NFL, especially when it's on the road. Not the prettiest win, but they move to 5-0 and that's all that matters.

Brady played pretty well, aside from that fluke INT after Julian smacked it up into the air.
