Hmmm...that's strange...then why did their game seem so different from the Dallas and Steelers game? I have your answer.......consistency and intensity!
They had it on the Dallas game. They've had it on the two season openers of the franchise's history.....they need to have that hunger every single game. I'm not saying they don't have it every single week but I'm certain that they do get a little comfortable and confident after a win which in turn hurts them for the following game.
If you look at the Patriots, they win the game and put it behind them. That's their focus this year....yeah they won this past Super Bowl but it's just that....the past Super Bowl. They're even Steven with all the other teams right now and they have something to prove yet again.
