What pundits were saying about Patriots on Sunday

12.02.13 at 10:42 am ET

Here’€™s a quick rundown of what some NFL analysts were saying about the Patriots before and after Sunday’€™s game against the Texans.

Sterling Sharpe on NFL Network before the game: ‘€œThe New England Patriots are the only team that doesn’€™t care whether they get the No. 1 seed.’€

Steve Mariucci on NFL Network before the game: ‘€œThis team is just getting better and better, and gaining some confidence’€¦This is a very dangerous team and it’€™s the best team in the AFC.’€

Bill Cowher on CBS before the game: “New England can wait for one of the slip’€‘ups right there because they hold the tie-breaker now over Denver having beaten them last week. From where they’re sitting right now, I think their schedule may be the easiest of those three. Certainly, Denver, look at them there. They should win out. If they win, get by [Sunday]. Right now, New England is sitting there at number two.”

Tony Dungy on the Patriots on NBC after the game: ‘€œThis team reminds me so much of our 2006 Super Bowl team in Indy. They’€™re decimated on defense, but they’€™ve got a great quarterback who’€™s making plays and keeping them in every game. Tom Brady is the reason they’€™re winning.’€

Marshall Faulk on NFL Network after the game: “The mismatch of [covering] Shane Vereen [in the passing game] will be giving teams trouble [the rest of the season].”
