Leftover Patriots Thoughts
Tom Brady may end up as league MVP, but don’t discount the incredible work of Vince Wilfork. That’s just one of many leftover thoughts from the Patriots’ huge win over the Texans.
It’s not winning the Super Bowl, but it is the work of a franchise that is on a run of near-dominance for more than a decade, and it’s OK to take a few moments this week to really appreciate it.
Tom Brady likely didn’t enjoy hearing all week about how his offense was going to struggle without Rob Gronkowski.
Booing Vinatieiri, “running up” the score, the impact of Gronk’s injury and more — it’s all covered in this week’s Leftover Thoughts.
Belichick’s disappointing crow hop, Fitzpatrick’s trash talk and a salute to the troops are all part of this week’s Leftover Patriots Thoughts.
Well, that sure looked easy, didn’t it?

The officials managed to make themselves the big story Sunday night. We’ll explore that, plus all the other leftover thoughts from the Patriots’ loss.
