MEANWHILE, IN PURITANISTAN...:

Is Your NFL Season Already Over? A Quiz : Jason Gay on how to tell if your favorite NFL team is out of it (JASON GAY, Oct. 11, 2015, WSJ)

1. You're a Dolphins fan.

2. Sunday mornings now feel worse than Monday mornings.

3. Your fantasy team now is the second-most depressing team in your life.

4. You watch the Patriots or the Packers and it's as if they are from another planet, playing an altogether different sport.

5. You watch your NFL team play and it doesn't look like they're even playing football. It looks as if they're wandering around a cornfield looking for somebody's keys. [...]

18. When you tried to give a pair of Kansas City Chiefs tickets away at work, you got a stern talking-to from human resources.


...the Pats were nearly unwatchable yesterday and still managed to beat a playoff team on the road in a 30-6 walk.  And here's the thing, the Cowboys managed to get pressure on Tom Brady in the 1st half, so in the second, the Patriots ran the ball up the middle.  Seriously.  That was the brilliant adjustment that Dallas never figured out how to compensate for, just using LaGarrette Blount a little.
