If everyone’s going to criticize the Dallas Cowboys for benefiting from an easy schedule early, then we all have to make some of the same accusations about what the New England Patriots have been able to accomplish in their first six games. The keywords in all of that are as follows: ‘some of the same accusations’.
The Cowboys are also guilty of a few other things. They don’t have Tom Brady. The Cowboys aren’t coached by Bill Belichick (or anyone who’s in that same class). The Cowboys haven’t won six Super Bowls since 2002 either.
All undefeated records aren’t equal, but all teams aren’t equal either. Look at the Patriots schedule. Can you find the possible loss?

It’s been said over and over again, and it needs to be said a few more times until it sinks in. The New Orleans Saints are 4-0 without future Hall of Famer Drew Brees, and they seem to be getting stronger as the weeks progress. When Brees returns, he’ll be a part of a better team than the one he left.
This isn’t the same team that lost to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2. This team and the next two are the three best teams in the NFC.
