I've been reading the boards here all week until my account got validated and again very level headed and good football talk.
Regarding the rain it is supposed to rain into the game. Gillette is field turf so unlike your game against the Bears it will not have a major effect on footing. It will drop into the low 40's as the game goes on so if it remains wet that will effect the ball for the QB's and skill players for both teams. Overall I doubt the conditions are going to play a major factor for either team.
I hope it's an epic game where neither team has any injuries. I like the Pats in a 31-27 type of game. If the game was in Houston I would predict the same score but the other way. I think these teams are that close. Good luck.
Welcome! Same props to you and your fans. It has been fun talking real football without all the BS.
I do think that no matter who wins this game, it wont mean much come January when we hopefully meet again. Lets just hope it goes down here in Houston. Here is to a classic game with all the helpings and no injuries.
