Week 9: Patriots vs. Panthers

So you're telling me there's a chance?

This team lost in Week 1 due to a fumble. They hung in there, in the elements, with You-Know-Who and the reigning SB champs and almost took out the red-hot Cowboys in overtime. Then, they went into LA and won against one of the better AFC teams. Since losing that game at home against Brady, they've gone 3-1 (compared to the first three weeks 1-3). Is this team for real? The AFCE is mostly up for grabs, so we'll have to see, but I am happy to see this team continue to grow every week.

The Panthers looked like a contender in the first 4 weeks of the season, but have since tumbled back to earth. Personally, I think the Pats are about to be above .500 for the first time this season.

Pats win 34-17

Bold Prediction: Mac bounces back, this week, and throws for 3TDs 0INTs and just under 400 yards.

Thoughts from the board


I'd love to see Darnold QB for Carolina as the Pats have had his number thus far, but I suspect Walker will be first under center. Still trust a BB defense against Walker.

Pats win 33-14

Bold Prediction: I don't riot


Keep an eye on the Pats d-line, and for them to get multiple sacks and TFL's.

Pats win 30-10

Bold Prediction: Barmore gets TWO sacks.


Pats' D dominates Darnold or Walker, doesn't matter.

Pats win 27-13

Bold Prediction: Gilmore gets a pick-six


The train keeps rolling.

Pats win 27-16

Bold Prediction: Meyers gets 2 TDs


Keeping the CAR QB flustered, whoever it is. The road warriors success continues.

Pats win 26-20

Bold Prediction: Jones gets a QB sneak TD


Panthers make it look competitive in the first quarter, but the pats defense ends up being too much for the panthers offense.

Pats win 31-17

Bold Prediction: Meyers not only scores his first TD... he scores it with Gilmore in coverage


Sam Darnold or whoever is at QB will be seeing ghosts.

Pats win 30-14

Bold Prediction: Meyers finally gets a TD


Darnold in - is that good news for Carolina?

Pats win 23-20

Bold Prediction: Pats waste opportunities for TDs by forcing the ball to Meyers in the Red Zone


Pats Defense is the key factor to winning games

Pats win 17-10

Bold Prediction: Agholor will score a TD

Nate (as interpreted by Blight)

I said what I said!™

Pats win 27-17

Bold Prediction: Darnold throws 2 picks
