The 15-0 Patriots will be going for regular season perfection tonight. After all of the trials and tribulations of that the Pats had this season they have the opportunity to go undefeated and have a perfect season playing the Giants in Giants stadium tonight.
“We’ve got a lot of records at stake, the most important one being the 16-0,” quarterback Tom Brady said Friday. “I hope we achieve that. It’d be a great feat for the team. We’d go down as the only team to be 16-0, so that’s the goal I’ve got in mind.”
The Patriots’ historic run created so much interest that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell yielded this week and gave CBS and NBC permission to simulcast the game, which originally was to be shown only on the NFL Network.
Brady is two touchdown passes shy of breaking Peyton Manning’s season mark of 49 set in 2004. Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss needs one touchdown catch to tie Jerry Rice’s record of 22 set in 1987.
I hate the Patriots. I hate them more than the average fan. What they have accomplished is nothing short of amazing though. To win 15 games in the NFL is a serious accomplishment. Anyway, Go Giants!
