Former Patriots linebacker Rosevelt Colvin called in to Toucher & Rich Friday morning to talk NFL and which teams are his AFC favorites, but before he did that the current Big Ten Network analyst analyzed the Week 8 Patriots victory over the Miami Dolphins.

It was a tale of two halves for the Pats, sluggish at the start but finishing strong. They fell behind 17-3 at the end of the second quarter, but it was a different story in the second half. The Patriots defense shut down the Dolphins and rolled to a 27-17 victory. Fred wondered what happened during halftime that led to such a dramatic shift in the game.

For Colvin, the answer’s simple.

“Definitely coaching has a lot to do with it. We witnessed it firsthand here in Indianapolis when Peyton Manning went down and the team went 2-14,” said Colvin. “Talent in the NFL across the board is pretty much the same. What they’ve done with the CBA and free agency, typically you’re going to get an evenly talented team. Coaching has a lot to do with it. The Dolphins aren’t making halftime adjustments, the Patriots are – I know that for a fact.”

Colvin went on to say that the Kansas City Chiefs are playing the best football of any team in the AFC and that they’re the most balanced team. However, he can’t wait until they play the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning to see how they stack up.

For the rest of Colvin’s AFC rankings, listen to the full interview below:
