Week 6: New England Patriots 24, New York Jets 17 (4-2) (Sunday, October 15, 2017)

Ever get the feeling that you're hopelessly behind? I still have nearly a dozen hours of TV watching to catch up on! Yeesh!

Anyway, here's the latest Pats' game review. I know you're all just DYING to read it. ;)

The game was one of those slugfests you get when you play a division rival. The Pats started out slow and the Jets played better than expected, so it was touch-and-go there for awhile. The defense is up to its bad old tricks and the offense is still sputtering, but somehow the Patriots managed to pull this one out on the road. Frankly, their record is better on the road than home so far this year.

It's disappointing at the lack of consistency and improvement with this team. I really don't know how the playoff picture will look. Too early to tell, but hopefully the Pats can figure out what's going on and fix it.

All I can say is thank goodness we have Tom Brady! Without him I shudder to think where this team would be.

The Pats beat the Jets, the Dolphins won, and the Bills were on their bye week.

AFC EAST DIVISION

NE 4-2
BUFF 3-2 (Bye)
Miami 3-2
NYJ 3-3


Next week, which is now only a few days away, the Falcons come into town for a rematch of Super Bowl LI!

Author’s Notes: This AU is set in the pre-Crisis On Infinite Earths Earth-2. The Golden Age heroes lived on that Earth, and that included the Dynamic Duo. Earth-2’s Dick Grayson never split from Bruce, but he gradually made a life for himself away from Gotham. The retcon part comes as he winds up getting his Greetings from Uncle Sam.
Note: The incident in Dick's letter happened to my father. Pretty shocking for a 17-year-old from Massachusetts training for combat in Korea. Also the training camp scene. The Irish-American was my father. Welcome to the South! All chapters can be found here.

Dick finally got his orders to ship out on February 1, 1953. )

Huh. Looks like I forgot to post the final reviews from last season. Oh, well, a good segue into the new season! :)

Week 5: New England Patriots 19, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 14 (3-2) (Thursday, October 5, 2017)

Well, the Pats did manage to pull out a win on a short week, but it was ugly! The offense looked like it was clicking but stalled several times in the end zone. The defense was improved since last Sunday but they still gave up the dreaded Big Plays, and they committed two consecutive roughing-the-passer penalties at the end of the first half that gave the Bucs an opportunity to steal 3 points. Fortunately their kicker couldn't get the ball through the uprights. An undisciplined Bill Belichick team is a shockah! Special teams were so-so, too.

The offensive line is a big concern. Tom got sacked, hit, and pressured WAY too much. He'll never last the season with all these big hits! Something has to be done, and quick!

Hopefully ten days off will help this team. They sure need to turn it around. 3-2 is okay, but hardly setting the world on fire.

Everyone in the division is playing tomorrow so I'll update after the games.

EDIT: Everyone won this week except for the Bills.

Next week, the New York Jets welcome the boys from Foxboro!

AFC EAST

NE 3-2
BUFF 3-2

They returned home to a Manor suddenly quieter and much emptier. Bruce returned to his study and buried himself in his work, refusing lunch but eating a light supper provided by Alfred before going out on patrol alone. )

Wow! I wake up this morning and an anonymous gifter has provided me with a paid account for a year on LJ! *squees*

That allows me 82 out of my 285 icons, too. Much better than 15! Though if anyone would like to help out with extra userpic packages, I have the space now ;)

But a HUGE THANK YOU to my anonymous gifter! I now have a few Halloween icons again! And can choose any layout I want. *hurries off to play*

You have made my day! :)

*BIG HUGS*

September was a month of personal upheaval, so not much writing this month, though I did manage to post one story.

Argh! I'm reduced to only 15 icons on LJ now because I'm not a paid account. Been a long time since THAT was the case. So don't expect appropriate icons over there anymore. :(

Thanks to everyone who sent me gifts and greetings for my birthday! I'll post a more detailed list this weekend. :)

Yay for me! My sister couldn't get tomorrow off (my actual birthday), but she got today off and she surprised me with a trip to The Hall At Patriots Place, the museum dedicated to all things Patriots! Woot! :)

We saw the 5th Super Bowl trophy, some new exhibits, like Edelman's helmet and gloves he was wearing when he made the Miracle Catch, and a lot of other fun goodies that gladdens a Patriots' fan's heart! :)

We then went to CbsScene for lunch and BunnyGirl ordered a salad with tomatoes and feta cheese while I went with a burger and fries, complete with tomato slices, pickles, ketchup, mustard and red onions. We also started with spicy hot Buffalo chicken tenders! And, I got a surprise at the end of the meal: three waitresses bringing over a dish of strawberry ice cream and singing, "Happy Birthday!" :)

The view was great: we were able to see into Gillette Stadium and view the five championship banners! :)

So now my actual birthday is tomorrow with great memories. :)

Week 3: New England Patriots 36, Houston Texans 33 (2-1) (Sunday, September 24, 2017)

Pats started out strong with some efficient touchdowns, but mistakes and a leaky defense and O-line sounded the death knell (almost). The defense COULDN'T STOP ANYBODY! Pathetic. The offense went downhill and couldn't do squat in the second half. Pretty disgraceful all around as special teams sucked, too.

Of course, then the GOAT went to work and pulled out yet another miracle game-winning drive. Typical Tommy! He's simply amazing. :).

Bleah!

All of my Halloween icons on LJ are gone because of the userpic packages expiring. Just my luck it'd happen at the wrong time! :(

Meh, might as well whine some more. With the LJ Paid Account expiring in a week, the icons are kaput, anyway. I'm just a spoiled little girl! :)

Oh, well, Happy Halloween a little early!

Week 2: New England Patriots 36, New Orleans Saints 20 (1-1) (Sunday, September 17, 2017)

MUCH better this week, but the Pats usually follow a stinker with a good game. Tom threw for 447 yards and Gronk had a great game, including a monster TD! Tom threw 3 TDs in the first quarter, the first time he's ever done that. The offense looked like they were getting in sync, but most of the WRs got hurt this game, so who knows going forward? The offense looked like they were getting in sync, but most of the WRs got hurt this game, so who knows going forward? Pats did gain 555 yards of total offense, the most for the Patriots since 2003.

The defense was better but gave up too many long completions. Still, improvement was shown. If injuries don't do them in, this team will be very potent as predicted.

Buffalo lost and Miami and the Jets playing late games, so will update later.

Next week, Houston comes to Foxboro!

EDIT: Miami wins and the Jets lose. Here's the standings:

AFC EAST DIVISION

Miami 1-0
NE 1-1
BUFF 1-1
NYJ 0-2
