I will say that it’s always nicer doing the Patriots fantasy recap after a huge win. Well actually any win at all makes it so much easier and much more enjoyable. We all know by now that the New England Patriots defeated the Miami Dolphins 48-28. The win moves the Patriots to 7-5 on the season and only a game in back of the AFC East leading New York Jets. It’s back to business as usual for the Patriots as they prepare for a very tough opponent this weekend with the Pittsburgh Steelers coming into town. The Steelers are 8-3 and coming off a game last Thursday night that allows then an extra few days of rest.

PASSING: Matt Cassel- 30 of 43 for 415 yards – 3 TD’s – 1 Int

Don’t forget we have three games kicking off this holiday weekend on Thursday. Which just happens to be Thanksgiving, so it’s time for family and friends. Plus a whole lot of football, true the NFL have been nicer and given us a few better teams to see. But none the less, it’s football and turkey. Makes a nice combo if you ask me. So enjoy it, please be safe and enjoy the action.
