With KC's loss last night, the race for the #1 seed got interesting again. The Patriots control their own destiny for a first-round bye and with 1 more KC loss they would control their own fate for the #1 seed. Despite all the handwringing about this team, they are in prime position to still accomplish all of their goals.

Do not overlook this game. Road divisional games are usually tougher than they appear to be on paper. As bad as the Jets looked last time out against Buffalo they still have some areas that can hurt the Pats. The Pats are in no position to overlook anyone.

And the Patriots are 2-3 on the road, playing mostly bad teams, with a -25 point differential.

um, I know I am stupid but is he wrong? Gronk hasn't really been Gronk almost the whole season. Is he gonna make any of his incentive numbers?

His injuries may mean the end is near. Meanwhile, he's top 5 in ypg and ypc among TEs.

Sam Darnold is practicing today for the first time since hurting his foot a couple of weeks ago. Rich Cimini of ESPN says he's not even participating in "light" positional drill work though. Robbie Anderson, however, is not seen on the field.

What section are you going to be in? I'm considering going but I'd be riding solo.
We'll be in 309. Funny thing is my father-in-law owns six seats in 128 for the Giants. Great seats/atmosphere, but tough on the depth perception when the action is on the other side of the field, so I expect these will actually be better for overall viewing in some ways.

Just hoping the current forecast holds up, for us and the offense both.

At Patriots practice today, the only one not spotted was Dwayne Allen. Chris Price of BSJ says Gronk and Shaq Mason were both practicing and "moving without issue." They don't see much of the real parts of practice so I think the injury report will likely say that both are limited.

Here
Brady has landed on the injury report. Much shorter report today after the bye.

DNP-Allen(knee)
LP-Brady(knee), Gronk(ankle/back), Mason(calf), Michel(knee)
FP-Edelman(foot)
Not great, Brady seemed fine at the beginning of practice, jumping up and down and rolling out of the pocket. I would guess he hurt it during practice.

obviously if we lose this game we really are paper tigers this year, but I think we have a better chance seeing Darnold start than McCown. shoot.

Well if Gronk really is all done I assume the Jets will somehow end up signing him to a huge contract next year.

Brady is not spotted at the start of practice. Could be just getting extra treatment on his knee or he could miss his first practice of the year today.

Um, we're doing Aliens quotes here.

Ed: let me explain something to you. Whenever you come in here and interrupt me, you're breaking my concentration. You're distracting me. And it will then take me time to get back to where I was. You understand?

Now, we're going to make a new rule. When you come in here and you hear me typing [types], or whether you DON'T hear me typing, or whatever the F you hear me doing, when I'm in here, it means that I am working. THAT means don't come in. Now, do you think you can handle that?

I love Aliens, but I watched it like a billion times when I was 7, so sadly I’ve forgotten most of it. Need to watch it again.
"Why don't you put her in charge then?"
"What are we supposed to use, harsh language?"
"Game over man ,game over"

Much like Goodfellas and Kelly's Heroes among others, the film is loaded with great one liners...…………..
