Default Will the Patriots go undefeated this year?

The Patriots are off to an excellent start this year. They have looked dominant on both sides of the football. Can they keep it up all year?

5-0 so far...

Upcoming Schedule:

@ Dallas Cowboys
@ Miami Dolphins
Washington Redskins
@ Indianapolis Colts
BYE WEEK
@ Buffalo Bills
Philadelphia Eagles
@ Baltimore Ravens
Pittsburgh Steelers
New York Jets
Miami Dolphins
@ New York Giants

I highlighted the games that I think will be the biggest test for them. The next three games that they might struggle at are Redskins, @ Ravens and @ Miami (the Dolphins always play hard against the Pats). Maybe Philly.

From the games I have watched, they look better than the Colts, and twice as far ahead of any NFC team.

I think they will go undefeated, including post-season. What do you think?

It's too hard. Besides, once they get to a place where they lock-up the division, and home field advantage they won't play with the same intensity...

For the record, I wouldn't mind seeing it though, just to silence those bitter men in Miami once and for all.

I agree that it's tough. But look at their ending schedule. Three of their last four are at home, and the only away game is to the Giants, who have been flimsy at best.

Default Re: Will the Patriots go undefeated this year?

If this poll is still up in a month, I'll come back... for now, I'd need a "it's too early to tell" button.

Do they have the potential to do it? Sure. But that only takes you so far, and running the table would require a tremendous amount of luck.

A lot of the players who were around for the 21-game win streak are still on the team. Granted that was over two seasons, but on the other hand the '72 Dolphins played a 14-game schedule (17 including playoffs and SB). Lots of teams recently (Pats, Colts, Steelers) have put up 14-win seasons. It's two full games where you don't have to worry about bad breaks, injuries, etc.

I do know one thing: If they get through to Indy without a loss, and win that one, the frenzy over it is going to be huge. The Pittsburgh game is at home, and look who's on the schedule twice... including the second-to-last game of the season!

Unlikely they remain undefeated thru the Indy game: Cowboys, Washington & Colts are all very tough games especially with 2 of those games on the road.

Default Re: Will the Patriots go undefeated this year?

Hard to say--I think, assuming they make it undefeated toward the last few games, they will be tempted to rest their starters for the playoffs, as most any team does. It's hard to justify losing out on the playoffs because you were gunning for a regular season record and ended up losing a key player. Having said that, the Pats run a deeper bench than some teams do start. So it's possible.

Week 9 Colts v Pats. Personally think they'll lose at least 2 games but win the SB.

The Patriots are in a zone right now...They aren't having their rythm disturbed...THey are simply controlling every aspect of the games they play...

When a team is truly able to challenge them we will see what that team is really made of...

Right now it's too easy...

No....I'd pick the colts to do it before the Pats and I don't think they will either.

No, it is too hard in this league. Even if it isn't the Colts I think the Steelers or a random team that has been playing off and on like the Ravens or Eagles could do it.

I will say that I'd LOVE for any team to do it just so those old bitter Dolphin losers have to keep the bubbly corked.

There is a reason it only happened once ever in the long history of the league...tough, balanced league. I think it's more likely they lose a couple than win them all.

Yep.... chances are they will end up being 14-2 or something like that. I just have a gut feeling that this group can take the 16-0, though.

If they hadn't increased the number of regular season games, many teams would have gone undefeated by now. The Colts got to 13-0 two seasons ago didn't they?

I think the Jets or some random other team like that gets them.

I would hope someone someday goes undefeated, just not the Patriots or Cowboys - ever.
