5 Bold Predictions for Patriots Week 6 Matchup

Week 6 of the 2013 NFL season was supposed to feature a game of fate. This was a game in which Tom Brady would tie Drew Brees' record for 54 consecutive regular season games with a passing touchdown. It was supposed to be a legendary moment in which Brady would not only achieve this feat, but he'd do it against Brees.

Saints vs. Patriots will air as scheduled, but a small twist in the fabric of fate has altered the guts of the game. Last week in Cincinnati, Brady's touchdown streak was snapped at 52 games. Come Sunday, history will no longer hang in the balance.

Disappointing? Sure. The streak added another flavor to the upcoming game, the way a shot of warm butter adds a new dimension to lobster meat. Football fans across the spectrum wanted some butter.

But, in a sense, the elimination of the butter makes it a purer test between these teams. Instead of the game being influenced by the added element of history, the game is now about the game itself. It's about the meat. It's about winning.

Here are five bold predictions for New England's Week 6 action.
