Why is this news?

It should be common NFL grade school knowledge.

The Patriots, under Coach Bill Belichick, takes every game seriously and treats it as a must-in whether it's against a team that's 14-0 or a team that's 0-14.

They know that a lowly team hungry for a win, if underestimated, can rise up and eat the mojo out of your playoff hopes.

That's why they went 16-0 less than 5 years ago. Only 2nd team in NFL history to get a perfect regular season.

I meant to say "must-win", not "must-in".

If the Pats get a big lead, shouldn't they take some of the first string players out in these next 2 games?

Just concerned more about injuries than getting rested.

They should take the Bills seriously, the Bills are playing much better as of late.

Parcell's philosophy was "players play" and apparently Belichek agrees. Its a long season and I see nothing good in playing Brady, Wilfork, Welker, etc during garbage time. If the Pats win Sunday I wouldn't mind watching all the backups in the game against Miami.

I just got a bad feeling about it. Maybe it's just me. Just have to trust in BB.
