WEEK SEVENTEEN VS. BUFFALO BILLS W 34-10
happy new year! our patriots closed out the season and the win on a high note, beating the bills in resounding fashion. since this was our second consecutive resounding win, i’m going to consider that a hot streak going into the playoffs!
after a season of throwing way too many passes while our receivers learned their routes and our running game developed, our fearless quarterback was able to all but take this last game off, going 14 for 24 and 122 yards. in fact, this may be the most work his hands did all day long! nice to get a solid win barely lifting a finger (or five), eh, tommy?
we’ve been watching legarrette blount get a little bit better every week, so it was super awesome to see him finally have this literal breakout game. he ended the game with 189 yards and two touchdowns, which earns him the tommy of the week in spite of the fumble. there are about a million pictures of legarrette bulldozing his way through the defense, but i like this one of him and belichick. this might even be more of an honor than getting the tommy of the week, legarrette!
we earned a first round bye in the playoffs, which means our boys are off this week. it also means you’ve got plenty of time to practice your happy patriots thoughts. no matter we play in the divisional matchup, we’re going to need all the help we can get!
have a great week, and go pats!
