Power Rankings
They are always going to be in the mix with Brady and coach Bill Belichick. They've done some nice adding in the spring as well.
They have to fix the offensive line, or Brady might not make it through the season. Adding tight end Martellus Bennett will help the offense, but I think they still need speed.
The offensive line has to be better next season. A little outside speed would be nice too.
What was that in Miami? They need to get it cranked up in the playoffs.
Injuries are really starting to impact this team. The offensive line is a mess.
They have clinched a bye in the first round, but a win this week against the Jets gives them home-field advantage in the playoffs. With all the injuries, they need it.
They are back atop the AFC and have control of the No. 1 seed. Getting Rob Gronkowski back healthy is so important for the offense.
The last two weeks have dropped them to the third spot in the AFC. They've had so many injuries.
They have a ton of injury issues, so now it's about getting ready for the playoffs. Who is Tom Brady throwing to now?
It wasn't pretty against Buffalo, and injuries are crippling the offense. That will be challenged in a big way by the Denver defense this week.
