Anyone Want to Question the Pats? [David Stefanini]

The New England Patriots are now 6-0. Tom Brady threw for 5 TD passes, and had a 40+ yarder overturned. The Cowboys looked helpless trying to stop this offense. They are simply too good.

Now don't let the final score fool you. This game was actually much closer than it appears. Early on in the 4th quarter, the Cowboys were 3rd and Goal on the 5 yard line. Instead of playing it as 4 down territory, they ended up kicking a field goal. At the time it was a 14 point game, and a field goal cut the lead to 11. Why not go for it? Worse case scenario the Pats have to travel the length of the field to score (which they'd probably do relatively easily) but at least you are giving your team a shot.

Instead the Pats go on to win 48-27. Now the only thing that remains is who will get their first lose first, the Pats or Indy? I think along with myself, everyone, thinks the Week 9 showdown between the Pats and Colts will be between two teams who are undefeated. I think the Pats will end up running the table and go 16-0. They simply have to much talent for anyone to compete with.
