WRONG.
I'm not gobsmacked, at least I don't think I am, but I think I understand what you are saying.

The Patriots remind me of the Bears. Their big thing was being on the plus side in the turnover battle. The Bears defense (defence??) was known to create turnovers, give their offense the short field & occasionally put points on the board. At that time, the Bears defense scored more than they gave up.

That's really the only thing the Pats got over us, considering their injuries on offense.

What people didn't recognize, is that we're pretty good at forcing turnovers on the defensive side of the ball as well. And offensively, we don't give it up.

That's going to be tested against the Pats. Without Gronk I don't think they have enough offense. Without turnovers, I honestly don't think it's going to be close.

That's saying an awful lot. Writing checks that Wade's gotta cash. But that's the way I see it.
