Suh-mokin'! the Red Sox seem to be doing their best to tank the end of the season, the Patriots have entered a zone that New England has never seen. Thirty-eight points scored per game - 38 in each game. No more. No less.

It's bordering on creepy now. I'll have to see if I can find out whether or not there has ever been a team through the history of the NFL to put up the exact same offensive score for three games in a row.

It's like a team that has come to be known for its defense this decade is just toying with the rest of the league on offense - they're trying to show they can score on anybody from anywhere. And to top it off, the defense appears to be as good as ever, taking away what the opponents do best.

So far, the offense has done this without always looking sharp. As a matter of fact the Patriots wasted three scoring chances in the first quarter of today's game, and still smoked the Bills to the tune of 38-7.

This translates to the offense averaging 38 points per game while the defense is holding opponents to 11.67 per game - an average margin of victory exceeding 26 points per game.

On D they're doing it without big guns Rodney Harrison and Richard Seymour, and Asante Samuel only got his first start of the season today. The offense? They keep claiming they haven't hit their stride yet.

AFC afraid. Be very afraid.

I think Coach has the Pats intentionally scoring the same amount each game just to show how in control the team is this year. I'm already looking forward to the 38-3 pasting of Cincy.

My wife theorized the same after the pasting of the Chargers.

Forget the AFC East being afraid... the entire NFL should be afraid. The Patriots are a powerhouse who will roll through anybody right now. Flat out amazing!
