Pats need a win!

Pats let Miami get away last week and unless they pull one out of their hat soon they may regret that Miami loss big time!

Ravens are a tough team as is and at home extra tough to beat. Playoff picture says we need to win now!

Go Pats

Won't matter.
You don't really think the Pats are going anywhere in the playoffs, do you ?
Defense sucks and Brady has no one to throw to, especially inside the 20

No chance at all, not with that Juggernaut from Oakland rolling through the playoffs on their way to another Super Bowl championship....Oh.....Wait....sorry was looking at the 1983 season.....are you doing anything to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their last Superbowl win? Maybe a big cake or something

Win or lose in the playoffs , I hope to be able to sit down and see a big game or two with them involved.

I know the idea of a big game for the Raiders is trying to lose the last game of the season to get a better draft pick. Up here in Pats Land we still call the playoff games big.

Funny thing about football...you beat Denver and New Orleans but you lose to the jets and Dolphins. The trick is getting into the big game under the best circumstances possible then playing your best. You never know which way the ball will bounce.

This.

We've shown we can win big games…but it's going to be a gamble. I'm not betting my house on it but if we get our act together at the right time you never know.

Who said anything about the Raiders in the playoffs ???
You really think the Pats getting badlly outplayed & spotting the teams like they have 1/2 this season 21-24 points in the 1st half then these fluke / miracle 2nd half comebacks will continue to the Super Bowl ?

Considering how beat up they are in pretty much every aspect of the game and they are sitting in the number 2 seed......I've been pretty much enjoying what they have been giving us.

How enjoyable has your season been?

With a little luck they might be able to wrap up the 3rd pick overall in the draft in the next couple of weeks....but then again they are the raiders.....they'll probably screw that up

pats actually made some nice plays but all the penalties take the flow out of the game... I am thinking that the Seahawks and Denver will be the Superbowl teams this season

the game of football is losing me with all these friggin flags and the abundant commercials. I lose interest halfway thru the games nowadays.

Good win by Pats.

This is probably Belichick's best Season coaching performance of his career..

No Welker, No Hernandez, Pretty Much No Gronk, No Woodhead, No Wilfork, No Mayo, Banged up Vereen, Banged up Talib, Banged up Amendola, plus others in and out over the season, and they are 1 win away from the #2 seed.

Not to many teams can weather that kind of Personnel Turnover/injury laden season...

Good win. They played well. But.... the Ravens laid an egg. As did Miami, Chicago, and to a lesser extent, Detroit. Baltimore goes as far as Flacco goes. At least Green Bay has some experience with Matt Flynn at the helm. Tough time of year to not be prepared to play for a playoff berth. Teams get exposed through injury. Take Brady out of the lineup and how do you feel about this team? Pats are one hit away from being a .500 team, or worse....
Detroit's QB Stafford has melted down over the past two seasons. I had previously thought he was the next elite QB for the league. Has a gun for an arm, but has developed terrible mechanics and is making bad decisions at the most critical time in the game.

The Same could be said for Denver, New Orleans, and the Colts.
