November and December is usually the time when the Patriots start to take off. According to PatriotsDynasty.info, with Tom Brady as the starter, the Patriots are a combined 103-28 in November and December. However, this season, the Patriots have struggled. They are 3-3 in the month of November and December, and while they will probably win the AFC East(what else is new), they are 9-5, and might be playing during Wild Card Weekend. Currently, they are the third seed in the AFC.
Can the Patriots get right before the playoffs? According to former Patriot Asante Samuel, as long as they have Brady, they will be just fine.
“TB is the man!” TB can go anywhere and make it work just like that,” Samuel told TMZ Sports. “Every year is always going to have its different challenges, and that’s what the Patriots and Bill Belichick built his team for different challenges and adversity. I’m excited. I’m ready to see how the playoffs turn out and see where it goes.”
The way things are looking for the Patriots they are probably going to have to go on the road if they want to get back to the Super Bowl. Of the five Super Bowls won by Brady and Belichick, the Patriots had home-field advantage throughout in three out of the five Super Bowl runs.
No matter the numbers, Samuel still believes in the Brady and the Patriots.
“Yes, they can definitely win a Super Bowl,” Samuel said. “My money is on them; at the beginning of the season, in the middle of the season, and at the end of the season. As long as they got TB, that’s where my money at.”
The Patriots will always have a shot as long as they have Brady, but this season does seem different, and with WR Josh Gordon out after being suspended indefinitely by the NFL,it could be tough sledding for New Ejngland moving forward. But, in the end, they still have Belichick and Brady, so the dynasty still has a chance to keep going with those guys together.
