There's nothing to be nervous about DB, take a cue from the great Pats fans that have come to visit. It's just a game, win or lose... it's just part of the process.
They won't look into it any more than an L on their record if they lose & look forward to the rematch.
We should be the same way. This game is hyped because they are who they are & we are who we are.
Nobody thought we would be undefeated this season. No one thought we'd be 11-1 at this point. & no one thought we'd finish the season 14-2.
We circled a few games on our calendar before the season started. This was one of them. They weren't must wins, they weren't should wins. They were, "it would be nice to win some of them."
Well we've won most of them. This is the last one. If we win, great. If we lose... we'll get them next time.
