Randy Moss: What the Trade Means for the Patriots and the Rest of the NFL

Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots never cease to amaze us. 

With future Hall-of-Famer Randy Moss now a member of the Minnesota Vikings, once again, Tom Brady and the New England offense will look to move forward without their dynamic wide receiver.  

While the Moss deal will not be without implications for the New England Patriots, the trade has had a ripple effect on a larger scale, shaking up the playoff picture in both the AFC and NFC

After Chicago's meltdown Sunday night against the Giants, Minnesota may have seen an opportunity to gain the upper hand in what has been a competitive NFC North division so far this year.  

For the Patriots, questions remain on how long they can stay at an elite level without their downfield threat. After a sputtering offensive performance in the first half against Miami, it took a spectacular defensive and special teams performance for the Pats to break away from the Dolphins Monday night. 

The rest of the AFC has to be smelling blood, looking to steal a playoff spot from a now depleted-New England team that had dreams of a possible Super Bowl run. 

We'll look at some of the possible scenarios and effects that Moss's departure will have around the NFL.
