If the Texans are overrated so are the Pats!
Beat by the Seahawks AND the Cardinals who Seattle just beat 58-0!
Which team is going to show up? Elite? LOL!!!
Maybe no one's mentioned this to you, or maybe you haven't watched a lot of football news lately, but this is actually quite typical of the Patriots in recent years. In 2010 and 2011 (finishing 14-2 and 13-3, respectively), they absorbed some losses in the early part of the season and went 8-0 in the second half. They're now something like 20-0 in the second half of the past three seasons combined. That's not an accident or a coincidence.
The football season is not a sprint. It's a marathon. The Patriots know that, and they know when they need to be playing their best football. And they're doing that right now.
They also lost three games by a total of four points. One was lost when Gostkowski missed a short FG, one was lost when the Ravens hit a last-second FG that was questionably good (went right over the upright, and the rule states that if the kick goes over the upright, the ball has to be completely inside of it), and then Seattle beat them on a last-minute comeback.
The Cardinals started the season 4-0. That's not irrelevant.
And you don't think the Seahawks are any good, huh? Because I do. Especially when they're at home.
