I have to agree, its good to see players not get overly worried about getting beat in their own house by the team that put them out of last years playoffs.
Its refreshing to see them be able to relax with a laugh after a failed play - I could sense the crowd seen the funny side if it after a few minutes aswell!
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
