Serious question – should the New England Patriots even try for the last two games of the season? Because as you saw in Sunday’s public flogging of the Miami Dolphins, the Patriots are in another league from everyone else. Patriots vs. NFL. Teams are slaughter. So what do we have to prove by winning by 30 points every week? Wins a win. Wrap up homefield and figure out who we’re playing in the Super Bowl.
The obvious one I worry about is Gronkboy. The guy seems like he’s cruising for a bruising. Somehow he’s managed not to get hurt all year and he’s arguably been the league’s MVP. When you couple that with the fact that streak of good luck with the fact that he’s been hanging out with dooshnozzle McGee
AND the fact that somehow this happened on TV yesterday after the game:
This all tells me that Gronk is just begging for his knee caps to get snapped. And OF COURSE it would happen against some garbage team of slug rakes like the New York Jets or Buffalo Bills. Because under no circumstances do we need Gronk to beat either of those crapbag teams.
Speaking of Buffalo, how friggin awesome is it that they won yesterday? I wanted them to beat the Packers SOOOO badly. Because as much as I shit on the Bills, it’s always better when they’re good. I remember back in 8th grade I used to love watching Jim Kelly go to battle against Drew Bledsoe and company. Then the Internet was invented and the Bills have been the biggest joke in all of sports.
The Bills now sit at 8-6 after shocking Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Here’s the standings as of right now:
So as you can see the Bills still need a Christmas miracle to make the playoffs. They lose tiebreakers to both the Chiefs and Chargers. Let’s look at teams #4-9 and see who they play next week. Please tell me which of the following week 16 opponents you’d most like to face in a must win situation: 49ers, Steelers, Chargers, Texans, Broncos, Raiders.
If you didn’t say the Raiders then you should probably go back to playing Barbie dolls. And guess which of those teams gets the mighty Raiders next week? That’s right…BUFFALO!!!!
So let’s say the Steelers beat the Chargers, the Chiefs lose to the 49ers, the Ravens somehow lose to the Texans, and the Bengals lose to the Broncos. All of those could very likely happen except the Ravens losing. All the Bills would have to do to pass San Diego and KC is beat the Raiders. They’d be half a game behind the Bengals, and tied with the Ravens going into Week 16.
IF they beat the Raiders. Because let’s be honest – nothing could possibly be more Buffalo than losing to the Raiders and blowing your shot at a winning season the week after you beat the 2nd best team in the NFL. But I’m praying to sweet baby Jesus that they take care of business next week and are in a must win situation against the Pats in week 17. I mean, look how fired up these people are:
LOL. Yea, the Bills can DEFINITELY host a playoff game. Especially since the Patriots already won the division….again.
Just a reminder that this is what Tom Brady did against that same defense IN Buffalo:
Greatest. Ever. I’m sure you guys will definitely shut him down in Week 17 though. I love the whole “If we only had a QB” thing too. Like it’s a utility outfielder or something. Only the most important position in all of sports and the Bills have some schmuck that was bouncing at the Blarney Stone three months ago playing quarterback. Besides that everything is fine.
^^^That man is so Buffalo it hurts. The thought of a week filled with sort of debauchery is giving me a turtleboy in my pants.
Yup, you’re definitely better than us through the transitive property of equality. Definitely.
The overblown optimism about an 8-6 team that has lost 23 of their last 25 games against the Patriots is fantastic in so many ways. Imagine what they’ll be saying if they’re 9-6!!
Yea if they can shut down the greatest quarterback in the history of the NFL, who literally facializes the Bills each and every time he plays them, then the Bills can DEFINITELY win that game. For sure.
The bottom line is that I need a Bills-Patriots meaningful game in week 17 like you read about. Give me.
