Where it ends, So it begins.

The 2016 regular season has come to an end, and the results? A 14-2 record, an NFL record 8th consecutive AFC East title, and the #1 overall seed. Not to bad with your star QB being out the first 4 games. This team persevered through some tough times, they stuck it out as a team, worked hard, and put themselves in prime position for a title run. Their hard work earned home field advantage throughout, and showed that you must always account for the Patriots, no matter what the situation.

Just take a look at what our top performers did all season long.

The season was great all around for our guys, but the journey is just beginning. Best record and Division titles are awesome and all, but we know what the main objective is.

The Patriots will start the playoffs on a bye, and will face the worst remaining seed from wild card weekend on Jan 14th at Gillete Stadium. Pats fans should be very excited about this first playoff game for the Patriots, seeing how they’re guaranteed to face the back-up QB, Matt Moore, Tom Savage, or Matt McGloin. Talk about having fate on your side, Derek Carr went down after putting up MVP like numbers, Osweiler has been benched for poor play, and Tannehill has been out since week 14 with an ACL injury. Now we can’t assume anything, but this divisional round is looking like an easy road to the AFC chanpionship game this year.

So, tune into Wild Card weekend and see who will be the lucky team bringing their 2nd string Quarterback to The Razor.
