Once again, the New England Patriots' season was cut short just before it got interesting.
Bill Belichick and his men could not handle the Baltimore Ravens, and they will have to wait until next season for another chance at a fourth Super Bowl title.
Unfortunately for Belichick, the championship window is closing. While the Patriots are the favorites to win the AFC East and advance to the playoffs, there are several question marks surrounding the team.
For the past couple of years, New England has been exposed in the playoffs. Next season is going to be another one of those years.
