All season we’ve waited for the Patriots to put it all together and play their best for sixty minutes, on Saturday night, we finally saw it.

Somehow, the game was even more dominant than the 45-10 score makes it seem. As Ty Law said on Comcast Sports Net, the Patriots made the Broncos look like a college team.

Before we get into next week’s much tougher matchup against the Ravens, here are my six keys to Saturday’s victory:

Bill Belichick has either lost his mind, or he’s somehow become an even greater defensive mind this year.

It’s either one or the other. Let me explain.

What we saw on Saturday was enough to convince me that this team will be good enough to compete for a Super Bowl. I’m a natural optimist, but when a team can come back from as many issues as the Dolphins game presented the Patriots with, that might mean we have a special team on our hands.

Here are my six keys to victory over the Dolphins on Christmas Eve:

So was it worth all the hype? Did this game change anyone’s perspective on Tim Tebow?

The answer to both questions is probably no, but it was a fun game to watch as a Patriots fan.

Tom Brady Perfect

"Yeah, Tom? We're going to need you to be pretty much perfect from here on out."

With the way football fans are talking around Boston today, you’d think the Patriots were on a five game losing streak or something.

The fact is, the Patriots aren’t going to blow every team out and they came away with a seven point
road victory. Was it a perfect game? Far from it, but a win is a win.

Here are my six keys for victory:

I get it, the fourth quarter was bad… But let’s consider who was playing on defense and all take a collective deep breath.

I came away from Sunday’s victory with one very important lesson: stop worrying about the Patriots run defense! All season I’ve worried about when the Patriots are going to have to face a scrambling QB, or when they’ll have to face a competent speedy RB. After seeing the Patriots shut down Lesean McCoy and Vince Young in the running game like Kevin McCallister in Home Alone, I’m not afraid anymore.

I’m not trying to be too big of a homer after this game, but I’m feeling pretty confident in this team right now. Brady’s looking good, he’s spreading the ball around and they’ve got a multi-headed running attack. The defense is coming around, they can stop the run, they can limit the pass, they’ve been great against third downs and most importantly, they force turnovers and the offense doesn’t turn the ball over.

Here are my six keys to victory this week over the Eagles:
