Well, the Pats did manage to pull out a win on a short week, but it was ugly! The offense looked like it was clicking but stalled several times in the end zone. The defense was improved since last Sunday but they still gave up the dreaded Big Plays, and they committed two consecutive roughing-the-passer penalties at the end of the first half that gave the Bucs an opportunity to steal 3 points. Fortunately their kicker couldn't get the ball through the uprights. An undisciplined Bill Belichick team is a shockah! Special teams were so-so, too.
The offensive line is a big concern. Tom got sacked, hit, and pressured WAY too much. He'll never last the season with all these big hits! Something has to be done, and quick!
Hopefully ten days off will help this team. They sure need to turn it around. 3-2 is okay, but hardly setting the world on fire.
Everyone in the division is playing tomorrow so I'll update after the games.
EDIT: Everyone won this week except for the Bills.
Next week, the New York Jets welcome the boys from Foxboro!
