Week 9 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers:

The Pittsburgh Steelers took a step back last season on defense, and their offense continues to search for their trademark running game. Ben Roethlisberger seemingly has a couple new injures each season, and he is a decidedly different quarterback when not at full strength. At home, the week before the bye, and knowing a win may earn them extra time off during the break, expect Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to continue to be fully motivated against the Steelers in week nine during the nationally televised late afternoon game.

Prediction: Patriots 31 – Pittsburgh 17 Record: 7-2.

Week 11 at Carolina Panthers:

The New England Patriots face off following the bye week on a Monday night against a strong, young quarterback with a rejuvenated running game. The Patriots under head coach Bill Belichick historically have ten wins in thirteen games following immediately after the bye week.  While Carolina should bounce back towards respectability again this season, expect the Patriots to hold their own and give the many Patriots fans who relocated from the Boston area to the Carolinas in search of opportunities in financial services and high tech manufacturing during the recession something to cheer about in Patriots Nation South.

Prediction: Patriots 27 – Carolina 17 Record: 8-2.

    I think the Pats will lose to Atlanta in a closer game maybe by 6 or 7 points. They travel to Cincinnati and play against a defense that may be stronger than Atlanta’s and lose in a close game, by three. Pats come home and beat the Saints in a shootout, Pats come out on top because of a better defense. I do not think the Pats run the table in the AFC east. They lose to the Dolphins at Miami. The rest looks about right. I have them winning the AFC east with an 11-5 record.

    I like your picks Hal. In my game predictions I had the Pats going 11-5 with losses to Cincy, Atlanta, Miami, Denver, and Baltimore. But you make a very good case for 12-4. Like Paul, I don’t think the Pats will go 6-0 in the AFC East, but never the less, I think we all agree a solid season is in the Patriots future.
