I've been looking at this date for weeks and thinking about playing the Patriots in New England. They're good but so are we. We get a lot of crap about not playing anybody but the Patriots feed on their division of crappy opponents just like every division leader. They talk a lot about how they're rolling so many points up on other teams but their recent win streak is against the Jets, Rams, Bills, Colts, Jets, and Dolphins.
I'm not going to say we will necessarily win this. I will say that we without any doubt can win this.
A good, rational post. I can buy into that.
I think we can win as well. I think we can beat any team on any day on any field.
As far as the Pats on Monday night prime time I hope we don't get smoked.
If the team that played today shows up (our defense flying around like crazy) and we can track 4 quarters of Texan offense we can win.
