Another week for our Patriots, another ugly win, but it was a win. I think fans have known for a few weeks now that this season is not going to be easy, but being down 14-0 to the Jets? If you weren’t nervous, then you are a liar, a fraud, or both.
Dion Lewis looks like he might be back (until he gets hurt again), Gronk looked great, defense, although they gave up points, played better. It’s a bit deceptive because the Jets got a touchdown called back, but the defense looked better, and for the second straight week, closed out a game. These Patriots aren’t what we thought they would be in the preseason, but plenty of NFL teams would be happy with a 4-2 record.
This week is the Superbowl rematch, and I am already annoyed knowing how often I will hear how the Pats were down 28-3, but I’m hoping for a good game this week. With an 8 PM start, I will probably be blackout drunk by then.
In the AFC, the Steelers now have the same record as New England, but they did something the Patriots couldn’t do: they beat the Chiefs. What’s impressive is how they did it, not with high-flying offense, but with running the ball with Bell and defense. I never believed in the Chiefs but I think the Steelers are the AFC team to beat.
The NFC took a major turn when Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone, ending many fantasy seasons, including my own. The NFC landscape now looks very different. In my opinion, the Eagles, Seahawks, and Panthers will battle all season for that top spot, but it’s still early. With all of the injuries this year, who knows what each week will look like.
It’s time for Week 7. NEW WEEK, NEW FUCKING HOPE!
PS: REMEMBER THAT CLOWN LAST WEEK WHO WROTE THE NFL DRAFT QB CLASS OF 04 WAS DONE? WELL, ELI, BIG BEN, AND RIVERS WENT 3-0 AND SHOVED IT RIGHT UP MY ASS. THE NFL IS A LEAGUE THAT MAKES HOT TAKES LIKE MINE LOOK FOOLISH.
