a late blown FG cost them their opportunity to be right.  it's not like the Pats blew them out.  still, it did seem like more of an opportunity to pile on the Patriot-hate than actually evaluate the Pats' chances to win.

Jimmy was impressive last night.

Pats O-line looked pretty shaky, though, and the defense all but gave up the game until Arizona obliged with a holding penalty and a missed FG.


Also, Blount is a beast.  He's the most impressive 3.2 YPC you'll ever see.  A lot of 1-2 yard lurches with the occasional 8-12 yard burst with three guys draped all over him.

Loved the hurdle over a defender against the Panthers (I think it was) in preseason.

to be fair, Arizona should have won the game on the FG.

On a 47 yard field goal? Not really. That's like saying an NBA team should have won on a last second three pointer. It wasnt a free throw type of situation.

Or New England could of put it away earlier by scoring TDs instead of those 2 FGs earlier in the 4th quarter.

Just standard pessimism. While there are a few plays you can point to on both teams the fact is for the overwelming majority of the game the Patriots were in the lead numerous times by multiple possessions. Both teams had a highly improbable play that helped them immensely. New England convert on a 3rd and 15. However, the play before the field goal attempt Arizona picked up 18 yards on a 3rd and 23 to even give them the chance at a long field goal. (which as pointed out is hardly a chip shop)

All that being said the 50 50 balls also went the Cardinals way. The patriots sacked Carson Palmer 3 times (and he is a guy that coughs up the ball). The cardinals still had zero fumbles lost. Meanwhile the patriots had 3 fumbles and lost 2. Overall the patriots actually really dominated the cardinals aside from those turnovers. This wouldn't have been a one score game without them.

A win is a win and it was great to see. The NFL and all the haters must be beside themselves lol. It was their chance to humiliate the Pats on national TV and BANG it backfired! I love it hahahaha.

The O-line is a mess they need Solder back badly and may need to trade for another tackle. The defense played well mostly as they followed the game plan. They just never seemed to make a big pay when they needed one.

As far as Blount, those 1 yard runs were killing me! Great call and play on that third and long run he had though.

Truly unbelievable with no Brady, Gronk, Solder, the other tackle, the running back on IR and Ninkovich. Those are some of our best players! ;)

I remember the same narrative was brought up with Cassel back in 2008. People are stupid sometimes.

I keep hearing fans say they wanted to humiliate the pats but I don't think there's any humiliation losing to the cardinals. Goodell won. It's a big load of cow manure but it's over. I'm glad Brady gave up the fight. It stinks what they did but the less deflate gate talk the better. It's really tiresome.

I thought the running game was awful. Except for a couple of big gains, it was mostly running into a brick wall on some of the most predictable handoffs ever.
