Patriots are a win away from proving they’re true contenders

Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald wrote: The Buffalo Bills were supposed to run away with the division. The Miami Dolphins were supposed to be competitive. The New York Jets were supposed to stink. The Patriots? They were supposed to still be licking their wounds a year after losing Tom Brady. After a slow start, the Patriots, who spent a ton of money in the offseason to rebuild a team that didn’t make the playoffs last year, have gotten their act together. They’ve not only put themselves in position for a wild-card spot, but have made the Bills and the rest of the AFC take notice. Beating the Browns on Sunday would cement their status. Listening to the Patriots players in recent days, they clearly have their swagger back. More important, along with their established veterans, the newcomers have bought in and believe they’re on course for something special — even without Odell Beckham Jr., who is reportedly headed to the Rams.
