After the win for the Patriots, it seems Stephan A. Smith's (sports journalist) predictions are becoming true. Prior the match on October 3rd, he said it would be difficult to the Patriots to make to the Super Bowl this season.
There’s no reason to panic whatsoever. The New England Patriots are going to be just fine because by virtue of the division that they play in, they’ll be in the postseason by default and there are so many questions marks within the AFC.
Smith also added he believed New England had started off slowly like in 2014 when they were thrashed by the Chiefs in Week 4 to go on then and won Super Bowl XLIX. And now as he said, Patriots are gaining their form back and probably they would make their way to the Super Bowl this year as well.
