our patriots eeked out another win, and boy, oh boy was i happy about it. it’s that time of year when teams either sizzle or fizzle, and while i wouldn’t exactly say we’re on fire, things are definitely starting to heat up.
our offense continue to look solid, and our fearless quarterback had another great game with 371 yards and two touchdowns. there was also one interception that i blame on rob gronkowski, though i concede the possibility that it might have been underthrown. i vaguely saw headlines that houston was “suspicious” of the patriots after this game, and i can’t really blame them. tommy clearly had all the answers written in his helmet. c’mon, houston! don’t you think that if were cheating, we’d have beaten you by 28 LIKE WE DID LAST YEAR?!
sometimes it feels like the offense is improving at a rate inversely proportional to our defense, and this one was of those games. houston has lost the majority of their games in the last two minutes, but even so – they scored four rushing touchdowns, and it was embarrassing that this game came down to another fourth quarter patriots comeback. luckily, we have field goal kicker who is MONEY (when he’s not asked to kick improbably long distances). while he did miss a 55-yarder, stephen nailed back to back 53-yard field goals to tie and then win the game in the fourth quarter. you might scoff at my decision to give him the tommy of the week for a game in which he actually missed a field goal, but i don’t care. he’s made 93.3% of his kicks this season, and it’s time to show him some love. plus, i think asking him to kick a 55 yards is mean. revel in your tommy, stephen. straight up the middle!
we host the cleveland browns on sunday, and the last time we played them, they gave us a well-deserved whooping. think your happy patriots thoughts for sizzle not fizzle, and lets hope the boys set that scoreboard on fire.
have a great week, and go pats!
