The Patriots game today was unbelievable. It was a dichotomy. In many respects particularly relating to defense and penalties, it was one of the worst games in recent memory; however from an offensive perspective it was much better. Yet even with this less than stellar showing they still managed to pull it out in the end. It was pretty much of a miracle IMO.
The reality is that the Patriots defense sucked. They were unable to stop Priest Holmes from running and gave up a huge number of pass in key situations. This looked like a completely different team than the one we saw during the previous two games. What was going on? Why the complete ineptitude after the superlative performance in the past? I have no idea, but they need to shape up because they cannot expect to win playing so poorly against tougher teams like the Dolphins.
