    This is a 3:30 game.

    The weather looks like a high of 64 and a low of 47 degrees. 20% chance of rain with 8 mph winds.

    The winds are crucial because sometimes it gets hairy in Foxboro and if that happens, and we have to depend on our run game we are effed.

    We did just come off a big win outside in the "windy city" but it is only early October. These stadiums can be pretty fucked up places to play later in the season.

    As @fanatic pointed out in his Bears thread, the Pats have a good defense but their offense is 1 injury away from signing @mctiger to the squad. There is little to no chance that Gronkowski comes back for this game. If that's the case, and if the winds don't whip up in Boston between now and Sunday, I think that we can win this game.

    Saints 34
    Pats 24

    I could make sure the Saints win if this happened.

    Great.

    Now all of a sudden Gronkowski is expected to play on Sunday.

    We'll just wrap Mr. Vaccaro around his big, gimpy ass. Problem solved.

    If there's a positive in him playing it's that he's missed over a year, so he can't be in football shape. And hopefully, the timing is off between him and Brady. Expect Graham to elevate his game. Not only is he playing for a contract, but he wants to show the world that he is the best TE in the game, not Gronkowski.

    Brady got hit a lot in their last game against the Bengals...this doesn't bode well for him against our D. Gronk or not, we still take the game and Graham dunks one through the goal posts.

    It won't be a walk in the park. The Patriots are tough at home, plus they still remember the beat down in 2009 when we made them quit. (Brady was pulled from the game about half way through the 4th)
