hey kids-
well, the patriots finally earned their first loss of the season, and boy oh boy did they earn it. i’m actually a lot less upset about the loss than i am that they played in what was maybe the most boring game of football ever played by anyone anywhere for the second time this season.
our offense could never get in sync during this game, and our fearless quarterback definitely shoulders his fair share of the blame. even our experienced receivers would’ve had trouble catching some of these passes. tommy only needed to pass for touchdowns in the next three games to break the consecutive touchdown record, but he had a hard enough time just holding on to the ball in this game, much less getting anyone else to catch it. don’t worry tommy. there are plenty more seasons left to break that record!

the only reason this game looks like it was remotely close is because our defense kept the score from spiraling out of control in an utter embarrassment of a loss. turns out rookie chris jones – who had only played in one game prior to this one, sacked andy dalton one and half times, and for that, he gets the tommy of the week. if things keep going the way they are, we’re going to need big performances from our defense, and this rookie proved he’s ready. way to be a patriot, chris! welcome to the team!

this totw is absurdly late because i was in new york, so we already played our next game – which was versus the saints. without spoiling too much, i’m happy to see you alllll practiced your happy patriots thoughts without my prompting. we needed them!
hope you had a great week- and go pats!
love dav
