WEEK TEN VS. BUFFALO BILLS W 37-31
hey kids- does anybody else feel like watching the patriots this season is sorta like watching groundhog day? this game against the bills looked a lot like that game against seattle – and almost ended like it, too. but we’ll get to that.
i think the only person more frustrated than i am this season is probably tommy brady, and he certainly has reason to be. scoring 37 points should be enough to beat almost anybody – and most definitely the bills, but you can’t put this one all on our defense. our fearless quarterback’s 237 yards and two touchdowns should have included at least another touchdown reception and probably another 100 yards had our receivers been able hold onto the ball. i’m as baffled as you are, tommy.
another dropped should-have-been-a-touchdown by wes welker has me hearting him less than ever, and aaron hernandez is still broken...so while i wasn’t particularly thrilled with rob gronkowski this week, i thought we could all use a reminder as to why he has his own co-feature on the totw. oh, yeah! and by that, i mean ohhhhhhhhhhhhh yeahhhhhhhhhhhh.
as i said, this game against the bills came dangerously close to going the way of that seattle game, except for a perfect catch by devin mccourty that stopped the bills’ last minute rally in the end zone. i’m not going to wax poetic since it was our freaking defense missing plays all day that got us into that situation, but i will give the tommy of the week to devin mccourty. thanks for doing your job, devin. if only our receivers could make catches like this!
we play the colts tomorrow, kids, and while it’s not quite the same as when peyton was at the helm, they do have the same record we do. we’re probably going to need more than happy patriots thoughts to get this one done, but think em anyway. they certainly can’t hurt.
happy saturday- and go pats!
