Great team win today, hope Julian will be good to go though. Always entertaining when playing the G-Men.

Another injury to a key player. Fortunately LaFell is back into the swing of things, but the loss of Edelman and Lewis is going to hurt.

Another good thing is that we won the game today and moved to 9-0. If we had lost this injury would have felt even worse.

What a game. The Giants to the Patriots are:

The Canadiens to the Bruins
The Lakers to the Celtics
The Yankees to the Red Sox

A HUGE thorn in the side. Great win today, but should I worry that the Giants will probably still get into the playoffs? With their horrible division they probably will, and I remember twice when a less than stellar Giants got to the playoffs with Eli at the helm.

The Pats are ravaged with injuries, but found their will on the road today. Butler was amazing - hate to say it but very Revisesque, running the routes with the receivers. That long pass we'll never know because McCourty cut Butler off even though the pass was caught. And that pass interference call was bogus.

James White needs to double step up his game. Amendola just needs to keep being himself, and LaFelle looks better every game. And what is the illness with Collins (another big missing player today)?

13-3? Why set your sights so low? After getting past the Giants who played their best game of the season cause they always have it in for the Patriots, the Broncos looking like garbage, who exactly do you think the Patriots could lose to? I'm looking for the 19-0 result they were so close to in the 2007 season.

No. They'll never get past a team like Carolina. This Giants team doesn't resemble those old teams. This Giants defense sucks. Patriots need to concern themselves with the Bengals and making sure they play them in Foxboro in January. If I was Belichick I'd start looking at Bengals film now.

13-3 would be worrying. A somewhat self destructing 4-3 down the stretch. 15-1 or better should be the goal. I do think Edelman is a big loss for them and Lewis was maybe even a bigger loss the week before. As good as they are still with Brady, I think they will definitley be vulnerable still down the stretch. But there defense is still solid and healthy for the most part.

I am always a pessimist with the Patriots for some reason. They still have to play at Denver, at New York and at Miami. All 3 of those will be tough games. Miami is a place where they have had issues - I believe they are 4-6 or 5-5 in their last 10 games down there. If both the Jets and Dolphins are still fighting for a playoff spot, you can bet they will give the Patriots their best shot. Denver is Denver. Yes they've struggled the last 2 weeks. They still have a great defense and play well at home.


Here's a fun fact: in the last 15 years the Patriots have won 81% of their games against NFC teams. Apart from 2012, they've never won less than 3 of 4 games against the NFC.

Belichick's success is he will never do this. Only one game in mind right now - Buffalo.

No other team has ever accomplished in 14 years what the patriots under Belichick has. That's because he properly focuses on winning one game at a time and never looking past an opponent no matter what their record is.

This is the truth.................and as we have seen over the years the Pats ability to seek out players from other teams who are undervalued............only to fit perfectly in the Pats playmaking.

Kudos to them.
That was Amendola, Edelman was done "juking" after the first quarter and won't be juking anyone for the next 6-8 weeks..
