Can the Patriots go undefeated in 17?

Already sorry I asked!!
Can the Patriots go undefeated in 17?

Well Prawnie, since you asked…

Not since the Dolphins of 72′ have we seen a team go undefeated and the 2017 Patriots represent the best chance since those Dolphins to go through the season undefeated.

The Patriots were the team who have come closest and if not for some Eli Manning magic, it would have happened.

Usually upon winning a Superbowl, teams rosters are decimated as players seek their proverbial payday after winning a championship. Whilst some have moved on from the Patriots, the new additions easily make the 2017 Patriots a far more formidable outfit than the one who beat the Falcons in overtime in Superbowl LI.

Brandin Cooks, Dwayne Allen, Kony Ealy, Stephon Gilmore, Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead have all signed on with the Patriots for this season.

When  you look at the Patriots schedule and the division they play in (AFC East), barring a major upset or an injury to Tom Brady, the Patriots will go into every game as pronounced favourites. The Dolphins may have an outside chance and there is a rematch at home against the Falcons which should be a great game, but I still don’t see Matt Ryan coming away from Foxboro with a win

There are some interesting away games, such as their week five trip to Tampa Bay and their week ten trip to Denver against Von Miller and the vaunted No Fly Zone secondary, which has given Brady problems in the past.

However, arguably the game of the year will be the Patriots taking on the Raiders in Mexico City. This shapes as an instant classic but leaves me no one to cheer for! Derek Carr is the rising superstar who just signed a $125 million contract and is one of the best pure passers in the NFL today. So we have the young gun going up against the G.O.A.T. Doesn’t get any better than that!

Yes, there are challenges but this Patriots team widened the gap in terms of talent on their roster and Belicheck is the master of having his team ready to give their all every week. It will be a fascinating sub plot in what should be another stellar season for the NFL.

They could do it Prawnie, but I know it’d kill you if they did, so I’m gonna stop short of declaring a Pats sweep.

Cos I love ya mate,
