Power Rankings
They came off the bye and started slowly against the Cowboys, but got it going in the second half. They will be a tough offense to stop all season.
They were on a roll before their early-season bye. Will they keep it going? How do you stop Tom Brady?
They head to their bye week flying high. Tom Brady might be playing his best football yet.
They showed the Bills that they are the kings of the division. Tom Brady lit up that Rex Ryan defense.
So much for the idea that the Deflategate mess would impact Tom Brady's play. Not going to happen. One concern: The defense wasn't very good against the Steelers.
They suffered some hits on defense, but I think the improvement by a lot of guys in the front seven will help compensate for that. Brady and the offense will be just fine.
The looming Tom Brady suspension -- and subsequent fallout -- would hurt a lot of teams. This is one that will rally around it. That's the Bill Belichick way.
They used the draft to fortify the defensive front. That's smart. Tom Brady will keep this team at the top. Team to beat.
The talk of a washed-up Brady is laughable less than a year after it started. He can win his fifth Super Bowl in 2015. Unreal.
Tom Brady cemented himself as the best QB of the Super Bowl era, but the young talent on defense will again make this team a Super Bowl contender next season.
