The patriots currently are far and away the #1 ppg offense #1 ypg offense. They've dealt with injuries (even to gronk) all season and while gronk hadn't been healthy for about five games, he was still a decent weapon and threat teams had to account for. Only the past week has he really came to form before as we all know, broke his arm.

We all saw in the sb how our offense looks without him.


The last six games the patriots play a brutal defensive schedule.

@jets
@dolphins
Vs texans
Vs niners
@jax
Vs dolphins

Thankfully the patriots have the texans and niners at home but still, gronkowski choose the worst possible time to break his arm (in the regular season).

So how will the patriots fare? Will they maintain their pace as the #2 all time scoring offense? Will the patriots score 30 points in even two of those games? Or will the offense fall apart and come back to earth and average about 20-23 a game?

Gronkowski is a GOAT calibre talent. He was on pace to break moss' all time td receptions record through three years and is already the first te to ever have three season of 10 tds.

He's already a much better blocker than Gonzalez/Winslow ever were and is on pace to shatter everyone of their records, and has done so with some already.

Brady helps, but let's not diminish his talent. Guy is a once an era type talent.

I think they start and end with those TEs. The running game is nice too but the bigs plays stop and start with those TEs. Welker and Lloyd are not scary at all.

Passing game will be fine. Brady can make do with Welker/Lloyd/Hernandez/Edelman.
The running game will likely suffer. Especially the off-tackle and stretch runs.
