The House of Horrors was not so this week for Tom and the Patriots. While the offense was stymied at times by the Denver defense, LeGarrette Blount still scored his 15th touchdown of the year, breaking the franchise record, and the Pats defense and special teams were pretty sharp. Hey, they held the Broncos to 3 points in their house! So pretty good, I'd say, and Dion Lewis and James White, our other running backs, had good games, too.
The Pats clinched the division (7th record-breaking year in a row!) and a first-round bye in the playoffs. They don't know if they'll be 1st or 2nd seed yet, but it's lookin' good for the postseason! *dances*
It was good to see guys like Chris Long enjoy the AFC East Division crown as he's been in the league a long time and never been in a playoff game! He's very excited.
The Bills and Dolphins won and the Jets lost this week.
AFC EAST DIVISION
Next, home at Gillette against the Jets on Christmas Eve! :)
