    I voted on Jacksonville too before reading anyones posts. I don't know why I think that but I just do. Something about that two-headed monster running game of theirs makes me think they could actually pull it off in a lower scoring kind of game. The weather up north doesn't seem to bother them much and they just seem like a really tight team these days.

    I should add though that I hope nobody does beat them this year. I want to see them run the table.

    Since I believe the Pats go 19-0 this year, I voted nobody. I don't think anyone stops them this year. Jacksonville might slow them down a tad, and Indy might keep up with them most of the game, but the Pats are just to awesome this season.

    i don't like "nobody" being on a poll like this. the question is who has the BEST shot at beating them, not who WILL beat them.

    I would say Jacksonville. The Pats only defensive weakness is their run defense. If Jacksonville can exploit that, run the clock, and keep Brady off of the field, they can hammer out a win.

    the Pats' safeties aren't very good, either. very exploitable. of course, having two of the best corners in the league might mask that a bit.

    Indy has the weapons to do it. You have to outscore them and Manning is the QB to do it.

    Needless to say it is going to be tough. N.E. can do it all and home field advantage on top of that.

    Green Bay if they get there. Physical DB'S and they know Moss. Farve will use same game plan that the Eagles used.

    Indy or Green Bay could do it. They will have to bring their "A" game.

    I said Indy but if I would have read the entire list of options I would have chosen nobody. Sorry, but noone beats the Pats this year.

    I said San Diego. They have a team that can get after you on D and run the ball with power. As long as Norv Turner remembers who his best player is.

    I want to see the Pats offense when the weather turns bad in Foxboro. Warm weather teams like the Jags and Chargers seem built for bad weather.

    Funny the Titans did not make this list .... considering we have consitantly played the Colts as well as we have for the last couple of seasons it would seem if Haysworth can get in at Brady we will be able to stop the Moss bomb.

    The SD game you will see LT crying on the bench like in the first half of our last game. We had them and let them go. This time around it will be different.
