Predicting the outcome of the New England Patriots' 2013 schedule is a tough task because so much can change on a week-to-week basis in the NFL.

Who really had the Patriots losing to the Cardinals in the home opener last year?

Looking back at past predictions, this is how the record stacks up:

2010: 9-7

2011: 11-5

2012: 13-3

Let's see if we can top it this year.
