EXIT 16W = 16W

Perfection. Ice in the veins. Records galore. Undefeated. The Best Regular Season Team Ever. This is the story of your perfectly maaaah-velous 2007-8 New England Patriots.

After falling behind by 12 points in the 3rd Quarter to a surprisingly feisty crew of New York Football Giants, the Championship breeding came to the fore. With crystalline precision Tom Brady led the charge back hitting receivers like they were video game icons—Welker, Faulk, Stallworth, and, of course, Randy Moss. Hooking up on a dual-record 65-yard TD pass, they eclipsed the other Manning and Jerry Rice in one fell swoop. Fifty touchdowns, twenty-three touchdown receptions. Even Laurence Maroney scored two rushing touchdowns (although at times he couldn't get out of his own way) and Stephen Gostkowski looked as cool as Vinatieri ever did.

The ultimate 38-35 victory solidified the historic pedigree of this great team and put aside all the "SpyGate" silliness once and for all. Three more wins to the ultimate title: Greatest Team in NFL History. Period.
