AccuScore predicts Pats to bounce back

By James Walker


Many AFC East blog readers scoffed at AccuScore last week after predicting the New England Patriots would lose to the Pittsburgh Steelers. It turns out AccuScore was on the money.

This week, AccuScore likes the Patriots to bounce back pretty convincingly. After running 10,000 computer simulations, New England (5-2) came out on top 72 percent of the time at home against the New York Giants (5-2).

It's a big game for New England. With a New York Jets (4-3) win over the Buffalo Bills (5-2) this weekend, the Patriots would be back in first place in the AFC East.
