The Pats Love Turkey
Once again, after Thanksgiving, the Patriots start to show their stuff. I was at the game against the Bears yesterday, and the Patriots found a way to win. Their defense stepped up with big plays even when the offense kept giving the ball back to Chicago. Most of the Pats turnovers seemed to be more of a result of hard hits by the Bears rather than careless play by the Pats. Some of the referee's calls seemed pretty questionable, but that is the risk with tight coverage down the field. On the flip side, the Pats were open quite a bit against a good Bears defense, and Brady hit the open receivers for the most part.
This was the first time all year that I thought that the Pats were going to win the game no matter what happened. That's how things felt during the Super Bowl years, too. Let's hope they can keep it going. The rest of the schedule is relatively easy, but they can't let up. They need to win them all and hope for some help from the Ravens and Chargers if they are going to get a first round bye.
