Pats down Jets to secure home field advantage in playoffs

2017 patriots

The New England Patriots were the beneficiaries of another controversial play in their win against the Buffalo Bills last week, and now they are on track for home field advantage in the playoffs.

Indeed, it was no surprise that Tom Brady took the start against the New York Jets at Gillette, helping the Patriots to a 26-6 victory in the regular season finale, thus securing home-field advantage for the National Football League postseason.

It says here the Patriots won their ticket to the Super Bowl on December 17 in Pittsburgh when Jesse James' catch at the goal line was ruled incomplete and Ben Roethlisberger stupidly tried to force a pass into the middle of the end zone.

Lewis, who finished with a season-high 26 carries for 93 yards, went in for a three-yard TD run on the opening possession, while in the second quarter Brady hit Brandin Cooks and Lewis each for five-yard scores to make it 21-3 at half-time. They have to earn everything beyond that.

Bill Belichick is always looking for an edge so it shouldn't be a surprise that the Patriots hung a thermometer in the Jets' tunnel. Brady's 13th win as a starter this season tied him with Brett Favre for the most by a starting quarterback at age 40 or older.

In this salary cap era, that shouldn't happen. While he had another 1,000-yard receiving season, he still doesn't appear to be in total sync with Brady.

It's all about "Doing Your Job", or "Next Man Up".

But hey, they will still finish with a better record than the Giants! Which means, if and when we get a Pats-Steelers rematch in the AFC title game, it will take place in Foxborough, where it will hopefully be a tad bit more genteel on the mercury than it was this New Year's Eve Day. "For me, three games is invaluable, the experience I got, what I got to see from a quarterback standpoint of things I need to work on in the offseason".

Joey Barton: Manchester City can break unwanted record against Liverpool
Few doubt Manchester City will go on to lift the Premier League title this season after an incredible first half of the campaign. This season is special as we are winning and winning and winning. "We have everything we need to go and get the right result".

"That's all you can do".

Four teams had a chance at the two remaining AFC berths. "I think we can do that". By all measures, it was a successful one, as the team finished 13-3 with the number one seed heading into the playoffs. In particular, safety Devin McCourty's excellence in that area showed up, while James Harrison's sound tackle on receiver Robby Anderson in the open field was textbook. We know those to be heavily exaggerated. We needed all those steps. Obviously we would like all the guys that are hurt to be healthy.

Matthew Slater, the team's special teams ace and spiritual leader, said the sky was never as dark as it looked at times. "We went through adversity, ups and downs, but more downs than we wanted".

Lewis has emerged as one of the team's MVPs in the late stage of the season.

"Honestly, it gave me a little cough, I can't lie", said Adams, who grew up in Dallas and played his college ball at LSU - hardly frigid locations. The Patriots of Brady and Belichick are in the playoffs for the 15th time in the last 17 years, soldiering through injuries in numbers and significance (Julian Edelman, Dont'a Hightower, Marcus Cannon) that would sink any team except Belichick's.

They would cruise to the win.

"Hopefully, not", Belichick said flatly. "We took strides this season".
