NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (4)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 3) - Congrats to coach Bill Belichick for win No. 200.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 1) - Offense is lethal, with Tom Brady having an MVP caliber season.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 1)

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 4) - Only concern I have is with their defense ... good enough to win in postseason?

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 4) - Pats are on fire, scoring a combined 190 points in their last four wins. Defense is getting better, too. Ready for another Super Bowl run?

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 6) - The Patriots are the only team in the NFL that has not allowed a return touchdown by opposing defenses or special teams.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 6) - They won their last eight regular-season games in each of the previous two years, so what's new?

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 4) - Why worry about defense when you average 37 points per game?

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 4) - The Patriot offense looks like a machine and has scored 190 points in the last four games. The defense is looking better with the addition of Aqib Talib.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 4) - Fifty-nine points last week, 49 this week and the Pats defense is starting to play some good football.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 2) - No team since the 1950 Los Angeles Rams has scored more in a four-game stretch (190) than the red-hot Patriots.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 5) - They have won their last four by an average of 27.3 points.
