Beat the Bills and we sweep them for the season. Beat the Bills and go .500 on the road this season. Beat the Bills and be in position to finish 2nd in the Division. Beat the Bills and Belichick moves to 334 wins (13 behind Shula). Beat the Bills and likely lose draft position.
Even before Tom Brady played his first meaningful snap for the Patriots, playing against the Broncos at Mile High was always a game to look forward to. Was it because my sister was a John Elway fan and I wasn't, perhaps. Nevertheless, this year's game isn't as big of a deal as year's past. Do we really even want to win, who knows. Win or lose, here are some thoughts about tonight's game.
After being unceremoniously flexed out of their Monday Night matchup against the Chiefs, the Patriots used a Thursday night time slot to show some first half offense and secure their third victory of the season. Will they or should they even go for win number 4 today against Kansas City?
Similar to last week, I'm still perplexed on if I want the Patriots to win or lose this week. Do I want a high draft pick since it's been a long time since we've had one? Absolutely. Would I prefer to lose today so we can try to beat the Chiefs, Bills, and Jets? You bet I would. Regardless of winning or losing, if the following things happen, it's a win in my book.
Normally, on Sunday mornings I sit at my computer and type up the things I think the Patriots need to do in order to win. This week is the first time I've sat down without really having that as a mindset. I guess not knowing what the mindset is of Belichick and Kraft at this point in the season, I'll just hope that the team does what they they want them to do. Now if they aren't in the same mindset, then I don't know what to hope for.
