    That's just not possible.

    It's well-known that Belichick extracts the souls of all of his players during training camp. They're returned at the end of the season, of course, but only if there's...

    I agree that if those two fumbles hadn't occurred, then two losses might have been wins.

    What I don't see is how changing two losses to wins makes a 1-4 record into 4-1. Wouldn't it be 3-2?

    Good post - all your points are accurate. Mahomes is best QB in the league right now, no question.

    But Patriots LB corps is also really strong - Hightower, Van Noy, and Collins.
