If you stayed up late last night like I did...

...you saw a very exciting football game between the Patriots and the Ravens.  The Patriots won, but they needed a lot of help from the Ravens (timeout call, penalties).  Peter King of Sports Illustrated breaks down the controversial calls today.

I think the Patriots are very good.  I'm not sure that they are one of the all-time great teams, but they have the potential to be considered in this group if they play well for the rest of the season.  Their defense looks vulnerable, and their offense hasn't been clicking for the past two weeks.  They have a tough game this Sunday against Pittsburgh, and then a couple of easier games against the Jets and Dolphins.  All of these are at home.  They have played very strongly at home, except for a tight game against the Eagles.  If they can get back to playing as well as they did earlier this season, they should be able to run the table and really be up there with the 1972 Dolphins and 1985 Bears.
