With the Patriots on the bye, it means it's time to sit back and enjoy other teams this week.

Who are you planning to watch?

Unfortunately I'm on night shift at the moment, and the Raiders-Broncos game is on in the middle of the day, so won't get a chance to see it live. Should be a good matchup, but I reckon the Broncos win. We'll see I guess.

Bills-Seahawks tomorrow could be an interesting one too.

It's a given we're all pulling for a Raiders victory, right?

I haven't wanted a team in black to win so badly since D2: The Mighty Ducks.

When he got to Cleveland.

Yeah it's a growing, dumb trend. Terrel Pryor added Sr, Marvin Jones added Jr, there's all type of suffixes sprouting up everywhere in the league.

Steelers, Broncos and Chiefs could all take an L for me today and I'd be happy.

One prospect I was right about, or so far is Jay Ajayi. I loved him in college and talked him up a bunch in here. Wanted the Patriots to draft him, especially when he kept falling.

I get that the knee issue scared a lot of teams away, but damn he looks good right now. Hate that he's in our division.

Some gross football today. That Pittsburgh onside? Laughing

I think the Chiefs are the biggest threat to the Patriots in the AFC right now. Oakland has a nice offense with great skill players, but I think they're a year out or so from being a competitor. Their secondary is weak and I'll take Brady against a Del Rio defense any day. Denver's offense I'm not taking seriously. Pittsburgh, with a healthy Big Ben is probably the second biggest threat.

Looking at the schedules:

Patriots:
vs. Seattle
@ 49ers
@ Jets
vs. Rams
vs. Ravens
@ Denver
vs. Jets
@ Miami

I can't see more than two losses there. Weak schedule. So unless we get hit with injuries hard, I see 13-3.

Oakland:
vs. Texans
vs. Panthers
vs. Bills
@ Chiefs
@ San Diego
vs. Indy
@ Broncos

Tough stretch to end the season.

AFC West is going to be fun to watch down the stretch.

I don't see the Chiefs as a threat because I don't think they'll make the playoffs. Their remaining schedule is brutal and they've already been hit pretty hard by injuries.

@Carolina
Tampa
@Denver
@Atlanta
Oakland

Tennessee
Denver
@San Diego

bolded are all games I think it'll be tough for them to win.

Denver's run defense has been much worse this year, especially the last few weeks. Hopefully we see a more balanced attack from our offense when we play them.

After watching that Bills-Hawks game, feeling glad that the Seahawks are coming to NE, and not vice versa.

I feel only Denver can hurt us, from the AFC at this stage. In the NFC, I wouldn't want to be facing the Hawks, Dallas or Atlanta - but if we get into the SB, no doubt one of those three will be waiting.

Still, next game first.

Denver isn't the same Denver. They're struggling to run the ball, have poor QB play, and their rush defense is no where near as strong as it was last year.

I think the Chiefs, followed by a healthy Steelers are the Patriots biggest threat. If the Patriots don't get the #1 seed with their remaining schedule, that's a huge choke.

Sunday night is big and is a real test. I'm pumped.
