BOSTON (CBS) – With the Patriots on a bye week, Andy Gresh and Scott Zolak kicked off Monday’s show by taking a look at the Sunday games and how they impact the AFC playoff picture.

With the way things shook out yesterday and the Patriots atop the AFC East at 7-2, Zo was optimistic right off the bat and declared the Patriots Super Bowl-bound even though “they don’t have an identity yet.”

Gresh took it a step further in saying “the sun, moon and stars are aligning” for the Pats, and yesterday’s slate of games was even more proof of that. Indianapolis lost and fell to 6-3 and the AFC North leading Bengals lost in overtime to rival Baltimore. Because of this, Gresh predicts the Patriots will earn a first round bye in the playoffs.

Gresh and Zo broke down why the Bengals and Colts are not AFC contenders.

“The Bengals are so poorly coached,” said Zo. “It’s up to those players to put it on them to see if they can take that next step. I don’t believe in the Cincinnati Bengals, I really don’t. “

On the Colts and their 38-8 blowout loss at home to the St. Louis, Gresh said, “Indy’s not good enough to take that next step, but I do think they’re good enough to win the [AFC] South. They’re not there yet, still one year away.”

Gresh & Zo also took a look at the Patriots next opponent, the Carolina Panthers, and their win on the road yesterday in San Francisco. It was an impressive victory over a tough 49ers team, but Gresh feels the Panthers “high school offense” and lack of playmakers will ultimately be their undoing.

We’ll get a better look at the Panthers Monday, November 18th when they host the Patriots on Monday Night Football.
