Mac Jones: Patriots have “a huge game” coming up against Bills on Thursday night

AFC Wild Card Playoffs - New England Patriots v Buffalo Bills
Getty Images

The biggest game of the Patriots’ season so far is coming up on Thursday night, when they face the Bills in a game that will go a long way toward determining whether New England makes the playoffs.

“Yeah, it’s a huge game. I think Buffalo is the top, top team in the league,” Patriots quarterback Mac Jones said, via the Boston Herald. “Obviously they’re playing really well when you watch crossover film and things like that. Just a great team. We have to be able to play better to win. We know the challenge ahead.”

The Patriots haven’t faced the Bills yet this season (the second Patriots-Bills game is in Week 18), but last year Jones wasn’t able to do much against Buffalo in three opportunities: Jones only threw three passes in a win over the Bills on a windy night in Buffalo, then had a bad game in a regular-season loss to the Bills two weeks later, and another bad game in an even more lopsided loss to the Bills in the playoffs.

It’s probably safe to say that the Patriots won’t beat the Bills with Jones throwing three passes again. They need Jones to have a big game, in what is a very big game to their playoff hopes.

  1. NFL is a bunch of jerks for making Bills and Pats fans wait this long into the season for the first match up.

    With the way the Fins and Jets fans have acted after the silver of success that their teams have had this year has had us Buffalo realizing that the Patriots ruled the East in a humble and respectful manner.

    Not a person in Buffalo that didn’t want to see the Evil Empire come to an end by my god how bad those people up and down the east coast have been. You’d think Miami had won 6 superbowls with Tua.

  2. Big game for both teams. The AFCE is one of the most competitive divisions now. After 20 years, it’s amazing to have real rivalries and division games that matter again.

    Jones played great the other night. The Bills will have to play better than they have over the past few weeks to earn a win on the road, against Belichick, who I’m sure will pull out the stops after what happened in the playoffs.

    Should be a close one. Can’t wait.

  3. This is NE’s best opportunity.. the Bills are decimated with injuries. But, the 2nd string Bills are still better..

  4. Bills backups are better than the Patsys starters. The question remains. Will the Bills finally punt?

  5. Not sure why most would expect the recent rivalry trend to change. The Patriots have struggled mightily with mobile QBs this season and Allen’s legs appear to be the only healthy body part he has going into the game. After seeing Justin Jefferson shred their secondary, I don’t expect Stefon Diggs to fare much worse.
    With Buffalo’s injuries on defence, the Patriots offence needs to win this game. I just don’t see that happening.

  6. Hey Mac, yes it is a big game, but no the Bills are not the best team in the league. There is a team that plays at Arrowhead stadium that as of right now is the best team in the league.

  7. This season for the Pats looked from early summer like it was going to be transitional, with the new concepts on offense, and Mac the last few weeks is finally showing signs of turning the corner in what’s been for him basically a second rookie season. He’ll make some hay against the Bills if the o-line can protect him. But he has to get more comfortable threading needles in the red zone; FG’s won’t win this game because NE’s D just can’t contain Josh Allen these days, under normal meteorological conditions, anyway.

    Good thing Goodell’s henchmen showed up for you the other night after Mac Jones working over your D.

    14 pt swing on 2 bagjob calls. All Pats fans want is to see no cheating from Goodell. Very simple. A fairly called game and no creepy rule changes or lies during the broadcast.

    “Any given Sunday” and all that. I remember when the Pats beat the Jets by around 40 points in the regular, but then had their season end against them in the 1st round of the playoffs. That was probably a Lombardi year, too.

    The Jets are legit this year, too. If they had played one of the back-up QB’s against New England in both games, they probably win both of those.

  13. Jesse James caught that ball. And I know of Goodell was trying to cheat me. I wouldn’t invite him to my wedding. Nice try tinfoil.

    Is this some kind of bad Tuck Rule joke?

  17. I’d probably have more empathy for the Pats being on the wrong side of bad officiating for a game, if not for the 20 years of the Bills getting personal foul penalties for breathing too much in the vicinity of Brady.

    That’s any expensive, high profile qb, not just Brady. Talk to the owners on that one. They whined about protecting their investment.

    The point here is overmanagement by the refs and the understanding one team will get calls or have penalties ignored to hurt them while anything in the grey area, especially reviewable plays, the team Goodell wants to lose (obviously this will be payback seen by owners for years to come to cheat), that team gets porked.

    Look, you know it’s bad when non Pats fans who are honest and call out the shenanigans. Pats fans have seen this for years. The difference is they had Brady to help fight theough Goodell’s cheating. Just because you don’t watch every Pats game the last 20 years, doesn’t mean Goodell doesn’t instruct ref crews what to do. Mac Jones isn’t good enough yet to fight through Goodell’s antics.

    We have seen rules changed after games to match a made up call on the field before. That stuff happened (2013). We have seen rules ignored with a broadcast spin job (SB 52). Terry McAulay more or less has Troy Vincent in his ear during the broadcast. Even though Henry’s hand is under the ball, McAulay still lied immediately to sway the viewer. The replay shows the truth and the broadcasters are awkwardly trying to tapdance around what the league ref is lying about on the broadcast.

    =============================

    No… But you’d think they might?

  23. What I have learned from this is that the Patriots never lose games, they either win convincingly or they get cheated by Roger Goodell, and everyone involved with the NFL is jealous of them, and that’s why Goodell cheats them. I think I’ve got it down now.

  24. Macaroni Jones has one obstacle….horrible coaching…if he was in Dallas or somewhere else he would be hoisting trophies…

    How is it possible with Belichick who invented a magic offense system in 2001, developed Brady and players for the system for 20 years, according his fans?

  26. flash1224
    Tell your “friend” – because the Jets have a good defense. New England’s is over rated. Too much BB worship still goes on in this league. He for our coached on Thua by KO.

  27. Too much BB worship still goes on in this league.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    It is not worship anymore, it is about saving their faces. If you were one of those who had believed in Belichick the garbage for 20 years and drove Brady out, what would you do now?

    They simply can’t be man up enough to accept they were wrong, even with 2.5 seasons of top defense that couldn’t put on a fight against elite teams and accomplished nothing.

  28. The Patriots without Brady don’t beat teams with winning records. Just saying. The Jets this season are one of those fake teams that benefitted from a weak schedule.

  29. I love the 13 seconds reference. Sure it was an epic game, incredible. The bills lost on dramatic fashion. But ya know what? The team that beat them didn’t go to the Super Bowl. Nope they lost at home to the Bengals. Oh and yeah, the Bengals lost yo the Rams. I think people tend to forget it was the divisional round and winning that game, while epic in its own right meant nothing.

  30. And you’ll have Belichick fans count his rings as defensive coordinator as winning championships without Brady. Please. Having Lawrence Taylor, not drafting players, and not calling the shots as a head coach is a bit different.

  31. Never forget that BB has ZERO championships when Brady is not the Quarterback.
    ZERO…

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    That is not the right way to put it. The right way is that BB has ZERO divisional title without Brady.

  32. Cmon NE fans are we really chirping the same team that literally had a perfect night on offense againsr NE last January? “13 seconds” is like LOLZ PATS 18-1 if you’re not a Giants fan

  33. No but they have won Super Bowls.

    Are Miami fans clinging to a title from the 70s? Ok I guess but if that’s the case then the Bills two AFL championships must mean something too. Or 4 straight AFC championship titles, that unless you’re a Dallas, NYG or Washington fan, means we probably beat you on the way to that title and the eventual loss in the SB.

    Let’s talk current history and all the chirping by the AFC east is kinda funny because my depleted Bills with an injured QB is still better than your squad. And let’s be honest Miami will fade here I’d be more worried about the Pats

  34. Tom Brady is nothing but a nice little system QB with a little arm who has never won a Super Bowl for his team. His team has always won them for him. Alex Smith could have easily done the same thing.

    Fact. That’s your Goat huh?

    Truth hurts.

  35. EVERYONE knows the Pats were cheated out of the victory last Thursday night….SOOOO MANY key penalties not called or somehow missed when anyone with even 20-40 vision could see them yet the refs standing right there couldn’t??!! Then add in the bogus TD reversal to boot….. pats playing 3 games in 12 days is tough enough but throw in beating the refs & it gets next to impossible to win no matter how good they play…. SURE, the Pats hurt themselves a couple of times there I know that too, but those refs & the chump that made up the going to the ground story sure seem to have been betting on a Vikes victory outcome!!!

  36. Tom Brady will always be known for cheating and benefiting from great teams around him. Nobody respects this guy. I doubt the majority of the country other than the Tommy fan club even likes this guy.

    Truth hurts.

    Tommy isn’t worthy to tie Montana’s cleats.

  37. Brady already won a super bowl with his new team. And he did it without Belichick cheating off the field. That’s something Montana never did. He took a 7-9 team to the super bowl and defeated multiple MVP quarterbacks on the road to make it happen.

  38. Why was Montana benched against the Vikings in the playoffs? That never happened to Tom. Wouldn’t the greatest quarterback of all time throw at least 40 touchdowns in a season, just like Dan Marino did twice in the same era? Montana stopped being the greatest after Super Bowl LI.

  39. To the first comment on this thread… the sliver of success the Dolphins and Jets have had? You do realize that’s what you Bills fans have been living on the last 3 seasons right? You guys haven’t won anything yet you act like you’re the reigning champs. Don’t throw stones in glass house. And isn’t it that TB6 states how much cheating their is against the Pats yet still watches and comments? Maybe it’s because the team is no longer a dynasty. You’re a normal team now. It was bound to happen. Just except the reality that the AFC no longer goes through you. Be thankful for that 20 year run and stop blaming everything on some anti-Patriot conspiracy. We have enough of that in this country.

  40. Someone mentioned something about good coaching for the Cowboys. I almost spit my coffeee out. Having lived in Dallas the last 50 years, I can guarantee you that good coaching has not existed here since the Jimmy Johnson days.

    ——
    I explained this before. Brady didn’t do squat with a 7-9 team. That team did not have AB, Gronk or Fournette guys who were essential to that run. But not as essential as the Bucs defense. That’s who won that SB not Brady. I don’t give a QB much credit for beating a cooked Brees or throwing 3 picks in the championship game. The defense held Mahomes to 9 points. Alex Smith or any other system QB could have done the same thing.

    Joe Cool wins Super Bowls for this team. Brady’s team wins them for his. HUGE difference.

  42. Brady won a fraud “COVID” title playing road playoff games in front of 3000 people. Yet another scam goodell pulled to make sure Brady won. That title Brady won in Tampa is more worthless than the Lakers bubble title that year. The Brady fanboys are easy to own. What a bunch of brainwashed tools

    You’re really going to tell me Tommy never had any stinkers in the playoffs? Lol. Tommy owns the biggest egg ever laid by a QB in football history, going in to the Super Bowl as an 18-0 QB playing the 17th ranked defense. They lost because he was horrible against that 17th ranked defense.

    Montana had real opponents and great defenses to contend with. Tommy had the AFC Least for almost 20 years. Funny how his division is horrible again and the Least is the East again.

    My guess is since Goodell showed up at Kraft’s wedding, owners made calls to cheat.

    What’s irritating is Kraft values the seat at the big boy table as he knows what is going on, and let’s it go on behind his back.

    The owners are still super jealous. Look at these other supposed jugggernaut AFC teams who aren’t. Those owners get embarrassed annually.

  46. Goodell and Kraft are very close. Don’t let tinfoil hats make you believe anything else. It’s like the pats have never got a call before. When a call goes for them, it’s the right call. When it goes against them, people are cheating. Not even close. No one fears them. No one at all. Their secondary was toasted by cousins. The same Cousins who a poster said was horrible.

  47. They wanna cheat the pats to put Buffalo in because they will make more money!! Lmao. Some people are so dumb

    The reason Belichick the garbage was not invited to the wedding was because Belichick made Kraft look really really bad.

    I bet that Belichick the garbage promised Kraft that Pats would be fine without Brady. Now everyone in NFL world (except few diehard fans of Belichick the garbage) knows that Brady was the cornerstone of Patriots dynasty, and Kraft let him go for free but kept a garbage HC.

    Talk about tinfoil. BB was of course invited, the team came first, they won and Brady lost.

    Pretty clear who has their mind right.

    Kraft neers to retire in case you haven’t figured it out yet.

  50. Montana was carried to all four of his super bowls. The Niners had DVOA ratings that put the Patriots stats to shame in each of their wins. Brady took a Patriots team ranked 31st in yards allowed to the super bowl. Let that sink in. It’s another thing that Montana never accomplished.

  51. Talk about tinfoil. BB was of course invited, the team came first, they won and Brady lost.

    ++++++++++++++++

    Enough of the excuse. BB had time for Celtics game but not having time for Kraft’s wedding, give me a break.

  52. “You’re really going to tell me Tommy never had any stinkers in the playoffs? Lol.” Oh, but Montana gets a pass, right? You’re insulting a quarterback who won seven rings, four super bowl MVPs, three league MVPs, and trying to downplay everything he’s accomplished. Tom won games in the salary cap eras with less dominant defenses. Montana never faced adversity.

  53. Cudos to Jones the other night. He looked pretty good actually. this was a close game. The defense actually lost this game not being able to cover Jefferson. I think Jones is coming around and getting it. Go Pats

  54. Sorry Tommy fan club. Even if I accept the idea that science explains less PSI being in the footballs the night of the AFC Championship game it does NOT explain any of these:

    – the text message talking about deflating footballs
    – the text message with someone calling themselves the deflator
    – Tommy smashing his cell phone knowing full well the investigation needed it searched
    – why the NFL would want to pin a cheating scandal on someone who is arguably the face of the league and permanently taint his career. There’s nothing to gain from the league doing such a thing. So unless there was a very good reason for it (and there was) why would they do that?

    Guilty as charged. Your boi is a cheat.

  55. So, Brady’s super bowl with the Bucs during covid doesn’t count but Montana’s super bowl won after that horrible earthquake wasn’t a gift, right? This is hilarious.

  56. Brady didn’t do squat with the Bucs in his first season? He only threw 40 touchdowns at the age of 43 and threw 10 touchdowns on the road in those playoff games. How about throwing his first first quarter touchdown in the super bowl? Tell me you don’t know anything about football without telling me you don’t know anything about football.

    Nobody is arguing that Tom Brady isn’t the most accomplished or decorated QB. He has his teammates to thank for that.

    Greatest? Nope. Montana > Brady. Montana came up big when it mattered most a lot more often than Tommy did. Brady took the greatest offense of all time and an 18-0 record playing a middling Giants defense (17th) and stunk up the joint and scored only 14 points. Yikes. Brady did have one shot to finally carry a team to a Super Bowl for the first time in his career against the Eagles…150 seconds left in the game down 5 with the football…and then he fumbled the game away. That’s a shame.

    LOL @ Montana never faced adversity. Montana had great coaches like Gibbs, Tuna (with BB) Landry and Shula to deal with. Montana played in a real division with awesome defenses in his conference. Brady had the AFC Least punching bag, no real sustained competition in the conference and a guaranteed home playoff game every year. Not hard to become the most accomplished QB of all time when you are set up for success like that.

  59. And now you resort to cheating claims because you know Brady is the greatest. No one cared about air pressure until it concerned this guy. That tells you everything you need to know.

  60. You judge a quarterback on being the greatest of all time because of not losing a super bowl? You might as well say Terry Bradshaw was better than Peyton Manning, because that logic doesn’t make any sense. When did Montana win seven super bowls, let alone appear in five and throw six touchdowns in a playoff game?

    Walsh was a great coach. I don’t think he rode anyone’s coattails.

  63. Brady has a better record against teams outside the AFC East than he did in that division. So, once again it shows just how little you know about football. Look at his playoff losses. Some of them were against the Jets.

  64. Steve Young won the 49ers a super bowl when Montana left. What has Belichick won with the Patriots without Brady? The sound you heard was the mic dropping.

    Be serious. There has never been a division in pro football for a 2 decade period with one stable team and the rest of the teams always on a merry go round of GMs, coaches and quarterbacks like it was in the East. I don’t care about fleeting any given Sunday moments where teams were competitive. It never lasted. Brady had a free ride here and it seems he has one in his division now.

    Not just that. More clutch in the biggest moments when it mattered. Admired by more people for his game. Didn’t need great teammates or coaches to win, he carried his team on his back.

    We’ve seen what Tommy looked like in 2019 and this year when he doesn’t have a superteam around him to make him look better than he is. I had to go to the second page of stats to see his passer rating ranking lolololol

  67. Or, the AFC East only looked bad all those years because the Patriots were so great with Brady. With Tom out of that division, it’s making Tua look good. And we all know Tua is 4-0 against the Patriots. Montana did not win one super bowl without Bill Walsh, Oh, but Brady is the system quarterback…

  68. Tom Brady after the Bucs-NE game last season:

    Q: Who is your least favorite team to beat?
    Brady: The Patriots

    Lololololololololololol. lolol. lol. lol. lol. lololol. lol

    That’s your Goat fan club. All shook after playing his team instead of being a man and declaring this was his favorite team to beat lolololol. Montana loved beating the Niners. Manning loved beating the Colts. Tommy was all shook and triggered by the thought lolol.

    Embarrassing.

    Or, the AFC East only looked bad all those years because the Patriots were so great with Brady
    —–
    Nope it was because those teams were poorly run or had bad ownership. The Patriots have great ownership and were very well run.

    3 unstable teams vs 1 stable team. For 20 years. You tell me who has the advantage and who got the free ride.

  70. We’ve seen what Tommy looked like in 2019 and this year when he doesn’t have a superteam around him to make him look better than he is. I had to go to the second page of stats to see his passer rating ranking lolololol

    So what’s your EXCUSE for A Rogers???? Why doesn’t he look as good as he did the last couple of years???

    Sorry Tommy fan club. Even if I accept the idea that science explains less PSI being in the footballs the night of the AFC Championship game it does NOT explain any of these:

    – the text message talking about deflating footballs
    – the text message with someone calling themselves the deflator
    – Tommy smashing his cell phone knowing full well the investigation needed it searched
    – why the NFL would want to pin a cheating scandal on someone who is arguably the face of the league and permanently taint his career. There’s nothing to gain from the league doing such a thing. So unless there was a very good reason for it (and there was) why would they do that?

    Guilty as charged. Your boi is a cheat

    The problem is that there was no crime. It’s like accusing a guy of murder even though nobody had been killed. The PSI of the footballs ware what would be expected given the temperature. In fact, the Colts balls were also below the legal limit. Your narrative only makes you look foolish.

    If Brady was known as the GOAT going into the 2000 draft? Bill Walsh drafted Montana. Why wouldn’t Walsh be seen as a “coat tail rider”?

    BB was widely considered the greatest defensive mind ever when hired to the NE GM and Coach.

    Go ask Ty Law, McGinest, Bruschi, Mike Vrabel, and all the other great defensive players that protected Brady in his early years, who made their careers. One guy: BB.

    BB has made these people millions upon millions because of how he coached and used them to be their best. The players, including Brady a month ago, have said how lucky they were. Yeah, no kidding.

    Law, Seymour, Wilfork, etc, don’t have HOF careers without BB and that includes Brady, Gronk, someone like Rodney Harrison and Julian Edelman.

    Umm, 2 SBs with the Giants, with one gameplan in Canton after being carried off the field dismantling Joe Montana?

    Life existed before 2000. I know you kiddies hate history and think everything only happened in your lifetime, but you are wrong. Mortifying how teenie boppers and 20 somethings routinely make fools of themselves for not doing homework.

    His defense also set a SB record by allowing only 3 points because Brady sucked in another SB again like an entitled primadonna he turned into.

    NFL is a bunch of jerks for making Bills and Pats fans wait this long into the season for the first match up.

    With the way the Fins and Jets fans have acted after the silver of success that their teams have had this year has had us Buffalo realizing that the Patriots ruled the East in a humble and respectful manner.

    Not a person in Buffalo that didn’t want to see the Evil Empire come to an end by my god how bad those people up and down the east coast have been. You’d think Miami had won 6 superbowls with Tua.

    Everyone older than 30 in New England remembers when the Bills were on top in the east and the poundings we used to take from them. We also remember quite well how bad the Pats were. I still remember going to Pats games and the most popular jersey out there was Jim Kelly lol. It was a wild ride for the Pats for 20 years and no one is likely to see that success again. I am also very grateful we have Bill, who warts and all, gives us a punchers chance every single week.

    I cant see rooting for anyone in the AFC that is not the Pats, but I root for bad bad things to happen to the Jets and Fins…

  77. Remember the last 2 games NE played against Buffalo where they couldn’t force a punt? Pepperidge farms does.

  89. “His defense also set a SB record by allowing only 3 points because Brady sucked in another SB again like an entitled primadonna he turned into. Mic drop CITY….”

    Unfortunately, it’s overlooked because it was Jared Goff. Belichick’s defense still allowed 40 points against Mahomes and 31 in that AFC championship. For the bottom line, Brady was the biggest factor in those super bowl wins. Bill’s defense gave up 41 points against Nick Foles and made him look like the second coming of Steve Young. And the Patriots weren’t exactly great versus the Panthers also.

  90. “But it was “all Brady”. 😂” Um, since Belichick has never won a super bowl, let alone a playoff game coaching the Patriots without Tom, an argument can easily be made that it was ALL BRADY. To be fair, how does 70 percent sound? Without Tom there to take less money, it has exposed Bill as a terrible drafter.

  91. The 49ers have been to two super bowls and won one a few seasons after he left the team with Steve Young. The Patriots have zero playoff wins or division titles under Belichick without Brady, while Tom already won another super bowl on a team that hadn’t made the playoffs since 2007. #WalshMadeMontana

  92. One difference regarding Montana and Brady, I never once saw Montana throw a massive tantrum if something didn’t go his way. He acted professionally, win or lose.

  93. I don’t know. I saw Montana get pretty upset when Jerry Rice called Brady the greatest. He looked frustrated in Kansas City without his Walsh playbook, too.

    No idea why Goodell does lots of things. My board name says it all.

    Obviously the judge looked at the text messages and they even wrote into the decision that the smashed cell phone hurt Brady’s case. Brady isn’t dumb he knew what smashing his phone would look like and he did it anyway. Obviously calculating they having the questions out there was better for him than the investigator discovering something he didn’t want found. What was he hiding? Details of the ball deflation scheme? Or maybe it was data on AG is treating him with HGH or something else that he shouldn’t be doing. That wouldn’t surprise me at all.

    —————————————————————————
    “The sound you heard was the mic dropping”, but that’s because you dropped it, after someone whispered in your ear, “you’re not right by saying that”.
    Belichick’s is in the middle of his third year without Brady, (2020, 2021, now 2022).
    Young won his SB in January 1995, at the end of his 3rd season.
    Young started 15 reg season games in 1992, (Montana played just 1 game), then 16 in 1993 and 16 in 1994.
    So you need to wait until this season is over completely over before anyone knows if that statement is accurate. But why let facts get in the way of a good story.

  103. Maybe if Tommy didn’t belittle and mock Harbaugh and the Ravens after that playoff win just like he mocked the Giants before Super Bowl 42 he would have gotten away with his cheating. I don’t blame the Ravens for telling the Colts to watch out for deflated footballs.

    Tommy can’t help himself causethat’s who he is. Pretends to be this humble team first guy but in reality is as arrogant and unlikeable as anyone that’s ever been in the league. I’m glad Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe aren’t like that. Glad they don’t need to cheat to be good either 🙂

  104. With noodle arm leading the Patriots and the Jets suddenly seeming to have a real quarterback, the Patriots can focus on their future draft picks because they will finish last in the AFC East after they lose to Buffalo on Thursday night.

    Ya, either he has fallen from cliff or he hasn’t found his go-to guy. Not sure which one it is.

    Mike Evans can’t see what he sees, so not his go-to guy. Just watch the 2 throws against Ravens when score was 10-17. Had Evans made cut as 1-yard line instead of running into defenders in endzone, it would be an easy first down at 1-yard line.

  108. Here we go with stories of Brady throwing to the invisible man again.

    I love fan fiction!

  109. You gotta love the NFL schedule…The backloaded division games in multiple divisions really
    make the next several weeks must-watch. This game is huge for both teams, but no doubt bigger for the bills, as they then have TWO more home division games immediately following this, with the “mini-bye” after this week. In the next three weeks, we will have a reasonbably sure idea of who will win the AFCE. The Pats are well-coached, and the 4.5pt spread seems like a fair spread since they have lost mostly close games and they are a tough out at home. The x factor in this game will no doubt be the health of the bills D against the pedestrian Pats O.

    EVERYONE knows the Pats were cheated out of the victory last Thursday night….SOOOO MANY key penalties not called or somehow missed when anyone with even 20-40 vision could see them yet the refs standing right there couldn’t??!! Then add in the bogus TD reversal to boot….. pats playing 3 games in 12 days is tough enough but throw in beating the refs & it gets next to impossible to win no matter how good they play…. SURE, the Pats hurt themselves a couple of times there I know that too, but those refs & the chump that made up the going to the ground story sure seem to have been betting on a Vikes victory outcome!!!

    My guess is since Goodell showed up at Kraft’s wedding, owners made calls to cheat.

    What’s irritating is Kraft values the seat at the big boy table as he knows what is going on, and let’s it go on behind his back.

    The owners are still super jealous. Look at these other supposed jugggernaut AFC teams who aren’t. Those owners get embarrassed annually.

    Dallas’ defense set the SB record in 1972 holding Miami to 3 points in 1972 in Super Bowl VI.

    The following year, in Super Bowl VII, Miami’s defense set a new record, holding the Redskins’ offense to zero points. The Redskins defense scored on Mike Bass’ fumble return after the Garo Yapremian debacle. The final score was 14-7 in favor of Miami. Homework.

  112. I don’t get the ‘Belichick can only win with the GOAT thing’ at all. Any team could have drafted Brady before NE did, but they didn’t. Belichick made extra room on the roster, promoted him to No. 2, and had the balls to keep him in even when local hero Bledsoe was back, how many coaches would have done that? Brady could easily have never got a single start anywhere otherwise, they are both GOATs and it’s stupid to think otherwise imo.

  113. Jones had 2 scoring drives last night. The first one was a sideways pass that the fast guy turned into a TD. The other one was a 17 play 5:46 FG drive to kill the clock when down 17. He is a bottom 10 starting QB and that’s his ceiling.
