Little more than halfway through the season the Patriots stand at 8-2, tied with the Jets for the division lead (although the Jets hold the tiebreaker at the moment). The Patritos 2 losses are to the Jets (who they lead at halftime) & the freaking Browns. Yet the Pats have beaten the Raves, Steelers, & Colts. They're also tied with the Falcons & Jets for the best record in the league.
The Patriots play against the Lions this Thanksgiving then finish out their season against (Dec 6th MNF) Jets, (Dec 12th) @ Bears, (Dec 19th SNF) Packers, (Dec 26th) @ Bills, (Jan 2nd) Dolphins.
Something odd about the Patriots - They only have two African American starters on offense and when Woodhead gets the start at RB over Green-Ellis they only have one African-American starter on offense.
Yes it will, glad we have a 10 day break to rest up some people. Defense still has alot to improve on, although McCourty is turning into a stud. The offense just keeps finding ways to put points on the board.
