They have the best quarterback. But the best team? I am not prepared to say that. Nor am I willing to abandon my squad, the Texans, who are still the AFC's number one seed.
The Pats and Texans play this week and I am looking forward to this. New England is the most dangerous team in the conference right now. They are dealing in every aspect of the game.
Wait. Weren't you just riding Houston?
Denver has a defense, too.
So does Houston. Guess what, the Pats' defense isn't as suspect as it was -- and it's recorded 33 takeaways. And when you have a team averaging an NFL-best 36 ppg, you're in a good place.
Don't get me wrong, though. I like the Pats. They're still my third seed. Goodnight.
They may be seeded No. 3 in your playoff picture, but they're No. 1 in your heart.
