1. Patriots

  • Cuts your ties with Cyrus Jones – he’s jinxed – got burnt for a 97-yard touchdown
  • Crazy how conscious I am looking for concussions during a football game now
  • Please put Dion Lewis in a glass jar until game 10
  • Garoppolo throws like Chad Pennington – great accuracy but the ball hangs up there for a long time – ouch for receivers
  • Defense gave up 97 yard TD pass and a 79 yard TD Run and a 42 TD pass

  • Patriot QB’s completed 77% of their passes
