So ... when does Matt Patricia come back from vacation?

Trending in the right direction. Also I don't know how other teams stop Gronk. He's just not fair.
My 2017 Draft Rankings:       My 2017 FA Celtic Rankings:
1.) Markelle Fultz                   1.) Gordon Hayward
2.) Jayson Tatum                   2.) Blake Griffin
3.) Lonzo Ball                           3.) No other realistic options
4.) Josh Jackson                          move the needle much
5.) Lauri Markkanen

A valid question. Wherever he is, he must have the worst ulcer in the world right about now.

On what are you basing this?

We have no business being in this game. Also, Gronk.

That "fumble out of the end zone" was one of the most puzzling calls I've ever seen.

Yeah, that looks like a horrible call by the refs. I don't know how there was enough evidence to change that call
I'm bitter.

I hate seeing something like that tarnish a really competitive game.

Nice (if not encouraging) win for the Pats, but all the focus will be on the refs.

Yeah, I went to the bathroom thinking it was 24-21, came back and was SHOCKED to see NE with the ball still up 24-14...  :o

That was a bad overturn, and even if he juggled the ball, he clearly had possession as he hit the pylon. Should have been a TD.

Glad the Pats came back though (it was looking real ugly especially when Brady threw an INT already down 14-0), but honestly, while the defense has improved a bit, the offense has gotten shaky as well (although Offensive Line actually did decent today).

NEED to be healthy as possible for next week, otherwise a hungry ATL team seeking vengeance will absolutely STOMP the Pats.  :(

Also, Pats have allowed EVERY QB that's faced them to throw for over 300 yards, and pass rush is still NONEXISTENT, which means Matt Ryan could probably go for 500 yards lol... Hopefully TB12 and the offense can play better and keep up.

Second week in a row that the score should have been tied or worse if not for totally avoidable errors or bad calls that went against the opponent.


Pats have just one convincing win on the season.

I think there are plenty of reasons to be legitimately concerned about this Patriots team. No way this Jets team should've kept it that close.

OFF TOPIC: Giants beating Broncos on the road 20-3 LOL.

I guess the Pats should feel a bit fortunate the AFC is fairly wide open still. OAK is 2-4, PIT and HOU are inconsistent, now DEN look real iffy on offense. KC still the best of AFC now but today proves they aren't "invincible" either.

Regardless, Pats still need to improve and BB has to make some trades and find upgrades in certain areas the coming few weeks (preferably at Offensive Tackle and a pass rusher).

But the way they have played so far... ATL will stomp them next week. Only positive is that MIA and BUF have beaten them so I guess there's hope for us lol?

To me, KC seems like the team that is always a "contender" but never really is. And ATL really seems off kilter right now, losing to MIA today, and Ryan has been pretty bad the whole season (he's on my fantasy team, unfortunately). But regardless of other teams, yes, NE certainly has some big weaknesses to improve upon.

Fortunately it was the right call:

Seferian-Jenkins bobbles the ball at the 1-yard line and subsequently re-controls the ball. The bobble makes the ball a “loose ball” under the rules. Any loose ball (which includes passes) follows the catch process to establish possession. It may seem like an arbitrary designation, but this is a clear way to bookend loose ball calls by keeping all loose balls consistent, no matter how they occur. Seferian-Jenkins is going to the ground as he regains control of the ball, and lands out of bounds in the end zone. This takes the ball, still considered loose, out of bounds in the end zone, which is a touchback and loss of possession.
