With the 2012 season looming in the distance I can emphatically say that the New England Patriots have a legit shot at going 16-0 during the regular season and that that point running through the playoffs to achieve the undefeated season that David Tyree stole from under them during the 2007 Season. I see THREE games that could potentially concern me this upcoming season and TWO of them are home games.
We handled the Ravens last season in the AFC Championship game so the week 3 matchup, without Terrell Suggs, just really doesn’t scare me to much. Although this is a game the Pats could easily drop.
The next two games that are cause for concern are the week 14 and 15 matchups against the Texans and 49ers. Not really worried here as the Texans seem to never really have great late season pushes and well the 49ers just havent proved to me yet that they are legit.
With that being said, without injury (see Rob Gronkowski Super Bowl 46) to any of there key offensive players I think the Pats can go the distance in the 2012 season. With another year for there defense to mature, more offensive weapons, and the new defensive fire power from the Draft the Pats are poised and ready to dominate in 2012!
