Revenge Bowl Fizzles

Wind, rain, cold, dank. Sounds like the setting for Act I, Scene I of Macbeth. And, come to think of it, there were some overtones of the Shakespearean type in SpyGateII. They just never materialized. At all.

This had to be one of the most boring Patriots contests in memory—and not the way the early season romps were boring. Oh, no, this was a whole new level of ennui. I mean we actually ran the ball!

Any game in which neither Tom Brady not Randy Moss touch pay dirt is unthinkable in this juggernaut year. Well, it happened. And they still won, 20-10 over the Garden State Jets. All the "offense" came from an interception TD run back, a short run after a blocked punt, and a field goal after a stalled drive. Yikes.

So, it was forgettable. They're still 14-0, only the second team in NFL history to reach that mark. And, given the "opponents" down the road, it's looking more and more like 16-0.
