Ravens didn't make the playoffs.
Broncos didn't make the playoffs.
Giants out after the first round.

Patriots were 1-4 in the playoffs vs those three teams in their previous five match ups.

So far, so good.

Is there a rule about your teammate assisting you from going out of bounds?

Giants were pretty average on the road this year. They were ripe for an ass kicking...esp once they lost DRC on defense.

Guys, Roethlisberger hurt his ankle, he just wants you to know so you can marvel at what a warrior he is and has a built in excuse if he loses.

There's no one left the Brady/Belichick Pats have lost to in the playoffs, right?

If we are 100% concerned about player safety, then the block by Floyd last week needs to be outlawed. I haven't looked in last week's game thread, but did everyone have this much concern over player safety after he laid out Lippett?
So now we're concerned with rules and not the player's humanity? Got it. If Lippett develops CTE, he can be at ease knowing it was a legal hit.
I'm going back over the gamethread that I missed this afternoon, and had to reply to this nonsense. Floyd's block hit Lippett's shoulder with his shoulder. They were both running laterally on the field so they were basically side-to-side. It was at great speed, yes, but Floyd also lowered his upper body carefully the step before the hit and made sure it was his shoulder going upwards, so there was no possibility whatsoever of a head shot. Floyd's block was a fucking textbook example of a way to make a big hit clean, with minimal possibility of injury.

I mean, come on. That would almost be a legal shoulder charge in association football.
