Some are more worried than others. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio didn't hold back in his compliments of the Patriots offense. "They're not only the top rated offense in the league, they're way ahead of who's in second in all the important stats, too," he said. "It's not like they're just a little bit ahead of team two in a lot of the stats. So, they're very impressive and they have been for a long time with (QB Tom) Brady as the quarterback."

Tom Brady and company have no problem playing in weather conditions. In fact, the New England Patriots dominate in snowy weather.

I hate Tom Brady. I hate Shayne Graham. I hate David Akers. I hate the fantasy playoffs. I hate Santa. And I especially hate Terry McAulay.
So what if I’m in a bad mood. It’s only been a few days since my team choked on a Monday night in Foxborough, Mass., when it looked like The Mojo Xpress had a berth in the conference championship game locked up. Instead of starting Akers...
