The Patriots are coming! The Patriots are coming!
They came, they saw, they conquered. The British Invasion in reverse! :)
They dominated Tampa Bay, which is one sorry football team. Too young and not well-coached: recipe for disaster for them as Tom and the Patriots beat them, 35-7. It could have been more if Tom hadn’t thrown two interceptions, a rarity for him. He threw 3 touchdown passes and is really starting to get back to his old self. :)
Wes Welker was incredible, flying around and making catches and gettig YAC (Yards After The Catch). He's Tom's go-to guy, along with Randy! ;)
The hype was fun, the features on London interesting, and the game was satisfying for a Patriots’ fan. Tom looked gorgeous in his postgame press conference in an olive-green suit with black tie. He’s always been fashion-conscious, but now he gets premium advice from Mrs. Brady. ;)
The Patriots made some mistakes, but Tampa Bay made way more. Brandon Meriweather picked off the Bucs QB twice in a row, running the first pick back for six. The Bucs didn’t lay down like the Titans did last week, but the talent on the New England side was just too much for them.
Next week is the Pats’ bye week, and then the iron of the schedule in November. If they survive November, they’ll be in good shape for the playoffs.
Coach Bill Belichick had done some sightseeing, visiting the bunkers that Winston Churchill had used during World War II, and I'm sure the team will take in some sights tonight as they don't leave until tomorrow. :)
