Don't buy the idea that Tom Brady is running out of time. He is still playing at a high level, but just needs a little more help.

They were close last season and added Darrelle Revis on the corner to improve the defense. A big key is getting Rob Gronkowski back healthy.

Injuries ravaged this team and it still went to the AFC title game. Tom Brady does that.

It's amazing to see them with a bye, considering all their injuries. It's a tribute to coach and quarterback.
12/24/201323
Why are they so good when their backs are against the wall? Coach and quarterback are the two biggest reasons.
12/17/201332
They have problems on defense that could be their undoing come playoff time. They have a huge one this week with the Ravens.
12/10/201322
They took a major hit with Rob Gronkowski going down for the season. Can they handle that?
12/03/201323
They had a hangover from the Denver game to start the Houston game, but they got it going. The offense is starting to click. The defense? Not so much.
11/26/201336
That was an impressive victory against the Broncos, showing their mental toughness. Tom Brady cures a lot of ills.

They are on a short week with the Broncos coming to town. That won't be easy.
