hey kids-
who knew moving day would be the least stressful part of moving? after dramadramadrama, delaydelaydelay, and one very dark and stormy Halloween night, i never thought i’d be so relieved to finally be in portland! 
last week our pats beat the dolphins, and I’m sorry I missed telling you all about it, because it was a fun game (and a very fun last drunken night in san diego). here’s the short version: our fearless quarterback went 28 of 38 for 356 yards and four touchdowns – and he gets last week’s tommy. yay patriots.

in more relevant football news, our fearless quarterback had a slightly less spectacular outing against the redskins. he went 26 of 39 for 299 yards and two touchdowns – but also threw his first real and second statistical interception (though he did tackle the guy who made the pick to prevent the touchdown). i’m not loving it, but it could be worse. ask green bay.

it was actually a pretty sloppy game with plenty of turnovers on both sides, but there were a few highlights. brandon bolden replaced an injured lewis to get his first career touchdown, logan ryan pulled down an interception, and steven gostkowski continued his consecutive field goal streak. while it was fun watching blount bulldoze his way to a career high 129 yards, this week’s tommy is going to chandler jones. just past the midway marker, jones leads the NFL in sacks with 9.5 and is just two away from his career high. with an offense that’s possibly slowing a little and is definitely getting depleted by injury, we’re going to need big plays from our defense. something tells me jones is ready to lead the way.

fun fact of the week: every time tommy’s had the nfc east on his schedule, he’s gone to the super bowl. we play what will probably be our toughest nfc challenger on the sunday – and given our track record against the giants, it may also be our toughest game thus far this season. think your happy patriots thoughts super hard this week. brian will be intolerable if we lose.
have a great week, and go pats!

love dav
