Ten predictions for Patriots' season

By ESPN.com staff

ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss has 10 predictions for the Patriots' upcoming season:

1. The Patriots will win 12 games. With a revamped defense and multifaceted offense, the Patriots are positioned among the NFL's elite once again. They know they can't count on the defense to force 38 turnovers again, but with a pressure-oriented approach, they should dictate play on a more regular basis and generate more pressure. Quarterback Tom Brady won't win the MVP award, but he'll turn in another solid season.
