Pro’s & Con’s: Could this finally be the year the pats get there's? Brady suspended 4 games, Gronk on the madden cover, Will they have injury problems again? There O-line does not look nearly good as before that's my big pointer to the weakness. Sure they lost Chandler Jones to the cardinals , but hey you got Chris Long he should fit right in. I think the defense might just carry this team the offense looks a little so and so if you include injuries they are one dimensional. There schedule is not nearly as easy as last year they might start off bad 2-2 may'be 1-3, yet I have this strange feeling they still make it.

Predicted Record: Well I think they'll get by okay with everything I just said although they might just barely make it with a 9-7 record.
