The New England Patriots are on fire. They are one of the hottest teams in the NFL, as they are riding a five-game winning streak. Only the Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints, both riding seven-game winning streaks, have longer ones. The Minnesota Vikings also are on a five-game winning streak.
New England headed into their bye in Week 9 on a hot streak and was facing a stiff test off their bye in Week 10. A visit to the Denver Broncos was on deck, which is sometimes problematic for the Patriots. The Broncos are the only team with a winning record against Tom Brady.
