I was probably the odd man out that picked New England to win last night, but only because
1) They're still shuffling after Logan Mankins' departure,
2) Home game for New England
3) Bengals, away, prime time? Fail and,
4) Brady and Bellicheck just don't embarrass themselves twice in a row. I anticipated a rout.
FWIW, I still think Cincinnati is probably the best team in the AFC, though I thought Baltimore was catching up (until I saw how easily the Kubiak rhythm offense was knocked off rhythm), and now I'm hoping that Baltimore can sneak in on a wildcard, and the Bengals get taken out by somebody else in the playoffs.
