It's almost time! Playoff football in New England is just about here, and of course, the Pats are in it.

It's hard to believe its been 8 years since the Patriots have won the Super Bowl, and the more I reflect on the two Super Bowl losses, the harder it is to swallow because BOTH were so close. The Pats have the bye week, and we don't know who they have to beat to get back to the bowl, but it seems like all the talk is about the Denver Broncos.

Can the Patriots win there in Mile High Stadium with Payton Manning at what seems to be an MVP caliber season? The good news is the Patriots should be well rested, and as healthy as can be heading into what should be another exciting postseason. At least the pesky Giants are gone!
