well kids,

our pats zoomed past the jets - albeit with slightly more drama than was necessary. in their defense, it had been kind of a dramatic week, so it's not surprising some of it showed up on the field. now that that's out of the way, lets hope our rookies are ready to put their heads down and the boys are all ready to get back to focusing on football.

our fearless quarterback is starting the season like gangbusters and racked up another 306 yards and two touchdown passes on sunday. he also went 28 of 42, which seems like too many passes. i suspect tommy was just trying to make everybody feel included - like this guy, who's name i don't even know yet. oh hey - that's jakobi meyers! oops. apparently the rookies aren't the only ones still coming up to speed. thank god tommy hit the ground running (but not literally, tommy! not literally!).

if there was ever a sunday for our rookies to have a rough day at the office, this was it. all 14 of the jets' points came off rookie mistakes, but it was nice to have the luxury of a 23 point lead that made those errors essentially meaningless in the grand scheme of everything except stats. our offense had a few hiccups with injuries to jules and josh (gordon laaaaaa), both thankfully appearing to be not-super-serious, but our defense continued to dominate. in fact, they've scored twice as many points as they've allowed this season, and for the first time in a long while, a patriot leads the league in interceptions (and another made the top five). that patriot is devin mccourty, who pulled down #3 versus the jets, pulling down the totw right along with it. jamie collins is right on your heels, dev! better get another one next sunday just to be safe.

speaking of next sunday, we play the bills, who (like us) are undefeated this season. i hate being second in the division almost as much as i hate losing, so think your happy patriots thoughts that our receivers heal up, our rookies shape up, and our defensive jacks up the second ny offense in a week.

have a great week, and go pats!

love dav
