That title is as witty as this is going to get. Frankly, I’m baffled at the way the Patriots have played this season. Sure, New England just housed the Rams, but that should be the norm, not the exception. Did it really take Josh McDaniels seven weeks to realize Rob Gronkowski is the most uncoverable receiver in the NFL? Really? Did it really take Matt Patricia seven weeks...
