[quote=tnbound2day;2042357]Or maybe this is the game that Brady gets injured on a viscous late hit dealt by a furious defensive end that is pissed that Bellicheat is running up the score again? Who knows. [quote, tnbound2day]

There have been some good reasons given here in defense of running up the score. Here's another reason: You're talking about the team that blew a 21-3 lead in the AFC title game just last year, and went on to lose the game. They were on the negative side of the largest comeback ever in a conference title game. Just last year. Maybe, just maybe, this team can be forgiven for viewing no lead as safe.

Default Sometimes it bites ya in the butt!

On the topic of running up the score, in college football the so-called powehouse teams purposely schedule games agaisnt the patsies, just so they CAN run up the score and garner some votes in the early polls. Nothing like creaming a patsy by a score of 76 to 10 in the first game of the season to get your team in the rankings. Sometimes that strategy backfires and it bites ya in the butt as with Michigan vs Appalachian State, and we all get to re-experience the pleasure of David slaying Goliath.

And my prediction of 34 to 9 was close. Only one problem, though. I didn't take into consideration about the points rolled in the second half. Score at the end of the first half was 35 to 7.

Hey, I have a question. How was the handshake between Bellichick and Jouron at the end of the game? I heard from somebody that it was a bit awkward or something, fill me in fellas.

Well that turned out to be a tight nail biting game huh. After watching the Patriots play, it is hard to watch anyone else. All the other games are boring. Kinda like high school kids playing an NFL team.
