Ok this just is not fair. One of the NFL’s best teams will be taking on one of the league’s worst teams in week 11 of the season. Tom Brady and the New England Patriots will head to the West Coast where they will take on the San Francisco 49ers. The Patriots come off a home loss against the Seattle Seahawks a week ago. The Niners are coming off a loss themselves, with theirs coming on the road against the Arizona Cardinals.
So the Patriots are coming off a game that saw them lose their second game of the year. And it came at home. Now they get to take on a team that would be considered the worst team in the NFL if it wasn’t for the Cleveland Browns. So can you see the Patriots coming out and taking their frustration out on Chip Kelly’s club? I know I sure can. The Patriots are not the type of team who loss two games in a row. Especially when the second game comes against a club as poor as the Niners.
Now you could point to the fact that the 49ers are home. My response: So what. They have lost four of their five home games this year, with their only win on the season coming at home week one against the Los Angeles Rams. Not exactly a Tom Brady led team. The Niners need to stay within two touchdowns, as a 14 point deficit would result in this game going to the Patriots in the win column and with the betting public. You need to have some real chops to roll with San Fran in this one. I know I can’t find a single reason to pick them to beat the boys from Boston.
