    Dios te bendiga y Dios bendiga a Todos los que estan leyendo esto! Deseo que tengan un hermoso dia! Buscad a Dios mientras pueda ser hallado! Jesus es el camino y el unico camino y regresa pronto! Recuerda cuando te sientas que no eres amado… el mayor sacrificio se hizo por amor! EL SUICIDIO NUNCA ES LA RESPUESTA!

    Porque de tal manera amó Dios al mundo, que ha dado a su Hijo unigénito, para que todo aquel que en él cree, no se pierda, mas tenga vida eterna.
    S. Juan 3:16 RVR1960

    La paga del pecado es muerte (infierno) pero Cristo pagó nuestra deuda en la cruz para nuestra salvacion! Debemos volvernos a Dios y apartarnos de nuestros caminos pecaminosos, confesar que Jesús es el Señor y creer con nuestro corazón que fue resucitado de entre los muertos por Dios, y  debemos de ser bautizados en el nombre del Padre, del Hijo y del Espíritu Santo y vivir por Su palabra y mandamientos! Confia que Dios ayudara con el resto!

    Busca a Dios, antes de que sea muy tarde! Hoy podria ser tu ultimo dia en la tierra!

    Que tengas un hermoso dia!

    The Pats Defense look like the Drop Kick Murphy's. Kick Ass.

    I’m a dumbass so forgive me if this is a dumbass take but here it is. So the pats offense really doesn’t have a real #1 receiver, both in the sense of one player being far better than the others and in who Mac prefers to throw the ball too. While no receiver or TE is a clear cut #1, they pretty much all make a great #2. So typically a defense would line its best DB up against the offenses best wideout, then 2nd best DB on 2nd WO, so on and so forth leaving the defense’s lowest caliber CB on the offense’s lowest caliber WO. Now with the pats having Meyers, Agholor, Bourne, Henry and Smith/Bolden, your best 3 DB’s can take out Bourne, Meyers and Henry, but that leaves Agholor,Smith or Bolden lined up against your worst DB or a LB which is a favorable matchup almost 100% of the time. So then you switch up coverage to lock down the pass, Harris and Stevenson will exploit any gap you leave them. It just seems like whatever a given defense may try and stop, they’ll find themselves getting burnt on the other end. Idk tell me how biased of a pats fan I’m being:-)

    The hope is they can get Jonnu Smith and/or Agholor rolling by the time the playoffs start. The have the #1 scoring defense in the NFL so you would think they will go as far as the offense takes them.

    The Bucs and Cowboys beat a Patriots team that was just breaking in a rookie quarterback. I bet the Pats would beat them both now.

    Brandon Bolden has the highest catch rate/percentage in the NFL, 94%. GREAT hands and runs like a pissed-off bull. Bolden is THAT GUY.

    I wanna see/know if Patriots D is the one we've seen last 7 games, or if they're really the D that gave up 3rd and forevers vs Dallas Cowboys, and think the Colts, and next Bills game, not in a hurricane, and maybe even last game vs Dolphins, will show more than last 7 games combined if they really have it or not

    The Run Defense ranking is misleading. It’s all situational and game planning. Usually when teams run on us, it’s because we are focusing on stopping the pass.

    The 2019 team was also OLD on D. That caught up with them too. Their three best players on D now are young; they're only asking the old guys to do their jobs, not be great.

    Not a Pats fan, but I would love for them to make it to the Superbowl and Mac Jones being the SB MVP. I would love to see how the media responsds that are in the pocket of Brady. Will praise him at every turn and blame him for nothing. Then I want to hear the Brady v. Bill debate again.

    You guys are usually very good. IT'S DECEMBER 14TH AND YOU'RE THE #1 DEFENSE!!!!!! It's not smoke and mirrors. This is one of the greatest defenses we've ever had, period.

    The Chiefs are the 2x champs and playing really well, led by the defense now, so they should be the favorites. We still don't know if Mac can lead the team back from a deficit yet. I'm pretty confident he can, but there might be a learning curve. It sounds like the Colts are going to concentrate on stopping the run this week, daring Mac to beat them, so here's his chance to show what he can do in the passing game.

    If it'd 3rd down I trust Meyers and Bourne. Bourne like Edelman knows where to go on 3rd down sit in between the safety/LB and corner to move the chains. Alot of his catches in San Fran came on 3rd down too. I think we're just trying to save Henry and Jonnu for the playoffs

    Why can't we just say they are amongst the best in the league and leave it at that. Things shift week-to-week in the NFL. One week your the top seed and the next week you could be 5th place or fighting for a wildcard spot!

    A very uncharacteristic game for new england and Jones. Blocked punt,missed interceptions,bad tackling. I know they're ifs and buts but if those issues stayed clean then we win that game against the Colts. Review the tape and get the gameplan going,our biggest game of the year is Sunday.
