Nice win. And TAM88 it's like we tried to give it to the Ravens. Those 3 mistakes were terrible. All looked like rookie mistakes. But that TD to Hogan was sweet.

I woke my wife up I cheered so loud. What a great play - beautiful ball and read.

What a tremendous grind it out win against the Donkeys....

That Defense is no joke, Pats played it close to the vest and took care of the football...

Donkey Offense is nothing special but still a great showing by Pats Defense, they are rounding into a Championship Caliber Defense....hardest hits in this game came from the Pats none harder than when McCourty layed out Thomas.....great team win.

Very comforting to see Edelman back there returning punts too....hope that continues going forward.

With their win over Denver today, the Patriots are 12-2 and have clinched the AFC East.

*New Engand has now won 12 games seven consecutive times, tying the record sent by Indianapolis from 2003 to 2009.

*New England has won their division eight consecutive times. This breaks the record previously held by the Los Angeles Rams, who won the old NFC West from 1973 thru 1979.

As an aside, since 2001 the Patriots have won the AFC East 14 times (in 16 seasons). The two years that they did not win it, they lost it on tie-breakers. And Tom Brady has quarterbacked his team to a division title 13 consecutive years in which he has been the team's full-time starter (excluding 2008, when he went down with a season-ending injury in week one).

These streaks of success - the Patriots as a team and Tom Brady as an individual - have really reached exceptional proportions.

TJ Ward is a clown. Slams Edelman down on an incomplete pass and proceeds to flex and get a costly flag and 15 yard penalty.

For the first time since 2008, the Patriots will have a better road record than a home record. They're 5-2 at home and 7-0 on the road this year.

Nice to get a win in Denver and also put a big dent in their playoff chances.

And in an era of free agency and salary caps truly unprecedented and unlikely to ever be duplicated by any other franchise.

Having followed this team since the early 70's I still can't believe the good fortune this fanbase has had of seeing the greatest team, QB and Coach do what they do for the past 16 years..

TJ Ward is a punk....one of the dirtiest players in the NFL.

Loved that he was flexing after costing his team any chance of getting the ball back with his boneheaded cheap shot...

In the last 16 seasons, here are some stats for the Patriots, regular season only:

They're 194-60 overall. They've won 76.4% of their games
They're 51-13 vs. the NFC. They've won 79.7% of their games
They're 26-6 vs. the AFC South. They've won 81.3% of their games
They're 25-7 vs. the AFC North. They've won 78.1% of their games
They're 20-12 vs. the AFC West. They've won 62.5% of their games

They're 106-21 at home. They've won 83.5% of their games
They're 88-39 on the road. They've won 69.3% of their games

People love to point out how weak the AFC East is consistently but have no idea just how good New England has been against the rest of the league. Every year they're getting at least half of their wins outside of the AFC East.

I think the key statistic here reveals itself in the postseason.

If New England was just skating to division titles in the basis of a weak division, they wouldn't be 11-2 in their first playoff games during that stretch. They wouldn't be 22-9 overall in the postseason (that's 71% against teams good enough to make the playoffs). They wouldn't be 6-4 in AFC title games and they wouldn't be 4-2 in Super Bowls.

We are lucky fans.......and as a few of my buddies and I have debated, there are few teams that have consistently been contenders over a stretch of four years or better, also know as dynasty's. Certainly not in the last ten years.
