Trent Dilfer, on ESPN on September 29th after the Patriots were throttled by the Chiefs in Kansas City on Monday Night Football. Days afterward, Tom Brady told the media he didn’t pay attention to the comments.
“We saw a weak team. The New England Patriots, let’s face it…they’re NOT good anymore. They’re weak.” – Trent Dilfer

Five weeks later, the Patriots dismantled the Broncos, 43-21, and have gone from 2-2 to 7-2 and the No. 1 seed in the AFC.
And now they have a bye to rest up before a rigorous 4-game stretch: at the Colts, vs. the Lions, at the Packers, at the Chargers, vs. the Dolphins. Combined record? 26-15.
