Undefeated Pats?

I know you hear every year that one team in the NFL might go undefeated but it never happens. The New England Patriots might do it this year. All the pieces are together for the Pats to do something that has not been accomplished since the 1972 Dolphins did it.

The quarterback, Tom Brady, is having a career year and that's saying something about a guy who has won three Super Bowls. And For the first time Brady has a great wide receiver in future-Hall-of-Famer Randy Moss. He also has Donte Stallworth; the speedy receiver could be a number 1 guy on some teams. Laurence Maroney and Sammy Morris combine to give the Pats the running game the sting it needs so defenses can't just cover the pass. Put that staff together with a solid D and you have a team that has a good chance of going 16-o.

Patriots Remaining Schedule

vs Washington
@ Indianapolis
@ Buffalo
vs Philadelphia
@ Baltimore
vs Pittsburgh
vs New York Jets
vs Miami
@New York Giants

This scheduleis pretty tough, especially the games at the undefeated Colts and the home games against the Steelers. Most of their opponents are decent teams but I think the Pats can pull it off. We'll just have to watch and see.
