FACTOID OF THE DAY:

There was a bookmaker on ESPN Radio last night who mentioned that, as things stand today, the point spreads in the Patriots' upcoming games against the Jets and Dolphins project to be 26 and 28 points respectively, which will be the two highest in NFL history. The Dolphin game is at Foxboro and if the Pats are still lossless and Miami winless and there's snow in the forecast, how does the spread not go up over 30?

The thing that all the Patriot-annointers acting like they've already won the Superbowl miss is that the Pats benefit from playing in one of the worst divisions in NFL history.

Jets? Dolphins? Bills? C'mon.

Have they played anyone decent besides Dallas and Indy? Both games of which, of course, they had to come from behind to win, and certainly the latter of which they could easily have lost.

Jim - Gee those crappy Jets beat the Steelers. Buffalo is 5-5 and in a prime spot for a wild card spot. Dolphins almost beat both NYG and Philly. AFC West and NFC West are being led by 5-5 teams. As for Indy (poor officiating) and Dallas (Dallas only led briefly before Pats pulled away) Pats won on the road in 2 of the toughest places to play.

Pats anointing is overdone at least until week 16.

As for the Pats-Dolphins game there will be a big snowstorm and the Dolphins get their revenge by having a prison parolee snowplow out a spot for a FG so that the Dolphins only lose 28-3.

It took NFL officials and Belichick hiding Adalius until the playoffs to prevent the Pats from blowing out the Colts.
