If you think about it, the Patriots arent as dominant as everyone makes them out to be. Dont get me wrong they are a great team, but they never really blewout teams:
They beat the Titans in the regular season by 8, and by only 3 in the playoffs
They only beat the Colts by 10 in the playoffs and 4 in the regular season
They beat the Panthers by 3 and those 3 could have been avoided if Kasey kicks the ball inbounds
They beat the Jets by 7 and 5
Miami by 12 and 6(OT)
Beat us by 3 and were helped out by a holding penalty that never happened
Denver by 4
the Browns by 6
Skins by 3
Giants by 11
They are an excellent team, but I think people make too much out of them. They are beatable.
One storyline to follow for the Pats is Roosevelt Colvin (yeah, you forgot about him), they defense can be even better this year.
