2012 NFL Week Five Review: Tom Brady & The PATS Are BACK

When I was making my preseason Super Bowl predictions, I intentionally left out ONE team, not because I think they aren’t good enough, but because I’m literally SICK of seeing them always playing for the title: The New England Patriots. The Ravens, being one of my favourite teams, won my pick to come out of the AFC and my prediction felt even stronger after Baltimore beat the Pats, but to be honest, it’s clear that New England is on the verge of STEAMROLLING teams.

1) THE PATS ARE ABOUT TO ROLL

Remember I predicted this NOW: The Patriots are about to put a good winning streak together. DON’T be surprised if they reel off 7 or 8 MORE consecutive wins. Up until week 14/15 when they play the Niners and the Texans back to back, they have a schedule that should allow them to cruise into the playoffs and make ANOTHER serious championship run.

2) IF THE GIANTS CAN RUN, THEY ARE SCARY

When Bradshaw is RUNNING dudes OVER (as he did on Sunday on his way to 200 yards rushing), the Giants are virtually unstoppable on offence. Eli will always have their passing game on point (as he did on Sunday throwing 3 TD’s to Cruz alone), so when their ground game is hot too, whatever D they are facing has TOO MUCH to worry about.

3) ANDREW LUCK IS THE TRUTH IN THE CLUTCH

Although Luck took some HUGE shots:

He managed to rebound and led the Colts to a HUGE win over the Green Bay Packers with the help of Reggie Wayne’s 212 receiving yards:

Shout out to Chuck Pagano fighting Leukemia. Stay strong Chuck.

4) RACE TO THE #1 PICK

I’m calling their seasons over from NOW – The Browns and the Panthers are FIGHTING for the number one spot in the NFL draft. Cam is not turning it around THIS year and Brandon Weeden has a LOT to learn before they can win their FIRST game this year, much less be a contender.

5) GIVE CHRISTIAN PONDER HIS PROPS

After beating the Titans 30-7, the Vikings have improved to 4-1 and [surprisingly] are above the Packers and the Lions in their division, after many people [such as myself] predicted they would be trash. But more surprising than their record, is the fact that Ponder is a BEAST right now. He’s NOT just managing games – he’s pro-actively WINNING them.

6) GIVE CUTLER/MARSHALL SOME CREDIT

I’m VERY happy to see my preseason Super Bowl pick, the Chicago Bears, BEASTIN’ out here. After smashing the Cowboys, they did EXACTLY what they were SUPPOSE to do and avoided a trap game by beating the Jaguars 41-3.

7) CONGRATS DREW BREES

Drew Brees just broke Johnny Unitas 47-game passing touchdown streak with THIS throw:

Although that’s cool for him, the most important part is the fact that the Saints got their FIRST win – and can avoid being the WORST team in the NFC.

Monday Night Football Prediction: {Current Record 3-2}

- This is simple – the Texans are gonna kill the Jets.

    NFC West no longer the laughing stock of NFL. Rams can beat Miami but after that its New England, Green Bay and San Francisco. I just pray no blowouts lmao

      Yo I KNEW The Rams Were Gonna Beat The Cardinals. No One Believes How Tough The Rams Are, I Just Hope Amendola Gets Healthy Soon.
