With Josh McDanields back, expect the cheating to be on full force.
Careful with this prediction....things happen in the NFL............I have the Patriots rolling to a second undefeated regular season in the past five years.
With the crap defense about the same and the running game worse with a worse OL and the law firm gone...
The Cheats will win 10-11 if Tammi can throw for 7000 yards...7-9 if she is older and just above average and human...and 2-3 if LORD HEAR OUR PRAYER...she receives a well deserved devastating injury

The reality is, the Patriots only real year of regression was 2009, when many of their longtime defensive standouts retired or left. They lost Richard Seymour, Rodney Harrison, Teddy Bruschi, Mike Vrabel, etc. and went 10-6 (if we had a veteran QB THAT would have been the year we won the division -- our defense and running game were elite and Sanchez singlehandedly cost us games.)
Pats have attempted to rebuild on the fly, and while they've done a good job on offense, it's been pretty questionable on defense. Regardless, most of the Pats stud players are relativley young -- only Brady and Wilfork are old timers. That said, obviously the Pats go as Brady goes, and he's much closer to the end of his career than the beginning of it.
Jets fans who think the Pats are regressing (here in 12) are in denial, IMO, but so are Pats fans who think Brady has 5+ years of playing at this level... I think one of these years he'll hit a wall and just won't want to get out of bed or take the hits. While he's hyper competitive, he doesn't strike me as the kind of guy who NEEDS football either. I'd be surprised if he still played at an elite level in 2015.
Pats will win 13+ games this year. Undefeated is stupid to call. Every team has a game like the Pats had in Buffalo last year, where every tipped ball goes to the other teams hands, or something similarly odd.
I do think the Jets can split with them.
Jets defense is vastly over rated.
Jets: 2nd in the league
Patriots: 30th in the league
Tout your team all you want, but stop pretending the Pats defense can even hold the Jets defense's jock. It makes you sound like a fool.
