I got to go to both the DAL game and the NYG game this year. They were great, competitive games, but the Pats did what they needed to do down the stretch to win them. They've already beaten five playoff teams this year.
Look for Belichick to attempt to win each game of the playoffs by at least 24 points. All this "running up the score" business this season had less to do with the team having a chip on their shoulder from the video recording accusations, and more to do with the desire to never again let a team come from 21 points behind to beat them. Every offseason move, every win, and every record was a result of the shocking loss to Indy last year in the AFC Championship. Belichick won't let it happen again.
As such, I have a hunch some more records will fall in the playoffs.
