For a team that has made their success off defense and these guys, I'd say it changes the dynamics quite thoroughly.
U jus don't wanna think bout it cuz the Pats have struggled for their standards
No, I just don't see who in the AFC has distinguished themselves from the rest. If this was just about being a Pats fan I could easily argue, "we've just had a few off games, Brady is playing at an MVP level and Welker is being properly utilized again, it's going to be NE." All those issues you list with Baltimore is why I don't put them at the top. Houston is the only team that has a good argument, but vs. the Pack it was like someone popped a balloon.
