Do all these so called experts really think the patriots are going to blow teams out every single week? Is it now just expected? They deserved to lose against Green Bay last night and if they play like that next week they are going down at the hands of the mighty bills.

a loss in that game wouldnt have been a bad thing. wouldnt have hurt the #1 ranking and it would have been a great teaching moment for bill

its pretty lame. the falcons biggest win margin over a winning team was 6 points, and that was against the awful bucs. yet for some reason nobody brings them in question

It's been brought up plenty of times brah. The majority of the sports misc thinks that a team is only legit if they blow every opponent out and their defense shuts them out.

Idk I was dissapointed. Then u have to understand run defense is hurting due to injuries. That leads to longer time of possession. Less time Brady has the ball. They're suddenly beatable. Inb4 excuse sayers.

its very simple, you need a solid run game and a really good defense to beat the pats. thats why the Ravens are the closest team to defeating them because of their defense and ray rice.

they can just keep running it down the pats throats, picking up 5-10 yards per attempt and taking over the possession time keeping Tom Brady off the field. thats how the Ravens absolutely pummeled them last year in the playoffs, im worried about the pats seeing them in a few weeks

You must not come into the falcons threads very often
