To some it may feel like the sky is falling after the Patriots lost to the Texans last week. Many Patriots fans have seemingly gone into hiding, but the team is still 10-2 and very much in control of a first round bye. With 3 of the final 4 regular season games home in Foxborough, the Patriots are in great position to close out the regular season as they usually do. They will have their toughest test this weekend in a rematch of the AFC Championship game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Patriots offense has struggled for much of the season but the one thing they do have going for them is a decade long undefeated streak at home when both Tom Brady and Julian Edelman are playing. The Patriots are a remarkable 42-0 when they take the field together. That is why locking up a first round bye is of the utmost importance. The Patriots need to concentrate on what they can control and let the rest take care of itself.
Tom Brady and Julian Edelman
Will attempt to keep their incredible streak of NEVER losing a game to an AFC opponent, in the regular season, at Gillette Stadium, in a game they both played in
The streak has lasted
10 Years, 2 months
