...And look, I'm not saying we could never beat this team....
If the game were at the Stick, sure, I'll roll the dice.
But, it was 2002 the last time Bill and Tom dropped a game at home in December. It looks like it's going to be wet again. That was the 6th time this year New England scored over 40. 'Slowing them down' would be only allowing 27 or 31....so do we have enough offense to get to the mid 30s? Against a team who bottles the run? In a game we may not have Manningham back? And super conservative playcalling? Nope.
My early guess is 34-20 NE, with us getting a meaningless TD late.
