So at what point to the Patriots start getting recognition? Yeah, they don't win pretty, they don't have a stud running back...

But the WIN. They play great defense, and do just what is needed on offense--and Smith and Faulk run well enough to keep the defense off balance.

C'mon people, believe in this team... ;-D

Those kickers looked like they had a tough time though. That ball must be as hard as a rock when they kick it - ouch. I don't think the cold affected that passing games very much. I know it didn't hurt NE very much considering they throw mostly 5 - 10 yard routes... Which brings up another point. I absolutely LOOVE that screen they run 3 - 4 times every game. Why not take the easy yards when the corner backs off the receiver? To me, it's just like an outside running play. I'm surprised other teams don't do it more.

Well, many, many announcers, ESPN analysts, etc. picked the Pats to lose today. The main reasons were the cold (a great equalizer, they said), the lack of running game, and the amazing McNair, etc.

I think that had more to do with the Titans than the Patriots. 95% of the "analysts" have wet dreams about Mcnair.

I swear, most overrated "underrated" player ever. Not that he's not as good as the hype, but because people keep saying he's underrated, when everyone blatantly hypes him up more than anyone else in the NFL.

Actually, I think they're the favorite to win it all by most. Nobody I heard was at all down on the team, they just talked "odds", and how hard it is to sustain a winning streak (i.e. Chiefs, Vikings). Another win just makes them an even greater favorite than they already were.

So NE wins another game, completely dominating and crushing the Titans in a lopsided victory of 17-14. PATs against all odds - with home team advantage, weather condition, and bye week - puts on a dazzling display of excellence, defeating the gimpy and hobbling McNair and George, proving once again they are the #1 ultimate team. Can anyone stop the New England Patriots?!
