The New England Patriots’ playoff hopes are very much alive. The team of head coach Bill Belichick improved to 7-6 on the season in Week 14, courtesy of a 27-13 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football.
The Patriots did not play their best game again, with the offense in particular struggling until finding a bit of a rhythm late in the contest. Still, a win is a win is a win — and this one has allowed New England to move back into the playoff picture as the seventh seed in a crowded AFC.
The victory also snapped a two-game losing streak, and gave New England some much-needed momentum heading into the final month of the season.
