The Patriots lose more than the game.

By Dave Serna

The Patriots are headed too the playoffs with one thing missing, their best receiver.
Wes Welker is done for the season. Welker has possibly a torn ACL and may gone for the rest of the year and maybe longer if that is the case. He in any case will not be on the field next week.
The Ravens are headed to New England and are ready to rumble, and without one of Brady's main weapons to run a defense ragged, this may be a closer contest than previously expected.
One thing to keep in mind, it's New England, it's cold, snowy and windy and it's hell for some teams that have no idea what they are getting themselves into.
In my previous blog I mentioned that there may be some dents in the armour on the Patriots.
There is. Not only now with the leading receiver on not only the team but 2nd in the league (122 rec 1336 yards 102 YDPG) down and out, but Brady is also not 100 percent. Fingers and ribs sounds like a good name for a restaurant, but these are issue's that Brady has been facing for a while now. One good hit from the Baltimore Ravens could be devastating. Watch out, the Ravens look more hungry at this point then the Pats do, and they look healthier.
Now as far as playing the starters in a game that pretty much did not mean too much, except to the Texans, well this has been an issue since Indianapolis sat their starters last week with a perfect season on the line. Their is no issue, at least in my opinion.
Wes Welker I'm sure wanted to play, so second guessing Bill Belichick is a little crazy in my opinion, if it occurs at all.
These injuries can happen at any given time during a season. These guys want to play and want to win and that's what football is all about. The goal is still ahead, the regular season is only the first chapter in the novel. So who can make it till the end? Keep reading.
