our patriots beat the kansas city chiefs, and damn skippy if they didn’t look like patriots doing it! our last game in foxborough showed our patriots in fine form – giving us plenty of hope as we march on to denver. but first, let’s enjoy this moment!
our fearless quarterback came ready to play, and he brought all his favorite offensive toys to make sure he had some fun. with nine different players making receptions, tommy went 28 of 42 for 302 yards and two touchdowns – plus a quarterback sneak repeat on a rushing TD ruled just short. it was good to see him all fired up and smiling after a few dismal weeks. nice to have you back, tommy!
know who else it was nice to have back? julian! even with the bushy squirrel attached to his face, jules was a sight for sore eyes. while he wasn’t quite in perfect form, he had a nice showing with 10 receptions and 100 yards – and freed up gronk for 83 yards and two awesome touchdowns. yes, i know our defense played, too, but frankly, they weren’t that great. after everything i heard all week long about KC’s amazing secondary, i’m just so freaking proud that tommy didn’t have one single interception (ignore those near misses) and that’s all i’m talking about. yay offense! yay tommy! yay patriots! and if you don’t know by now that julian’s getting the tommy of the week (sorry gronk), well, then you just don’t know me at all. p.s. - i’m totally pretending that ball is me. how i missed you, julian!
we play in denver next weekend for a shot at the super bowl, and here’s how it looks, kids. i’m a tiny bit worried about the broncos, but not that much. i’m a tiny bit worried about julian’s little foot, but not that much. i’m a tiny bit worried chandler jones will get suspended, but not that much. i’m holy freaking worried about mile high stadium, and so so much. forget peyton’s ponies – it’s that stadium that’s going to be tommy’s biggest challenge. let’s hope revenge for breaking gronk back in november and tommy’s pinky’s desperation for a ring are enough fuel to light that oxygen-deprived stable on fire. start thinking your happy patriots thoughts right now, and I’ll block them back in the right direction if they drift too far west.
have a great week, and go pats!
