9. Patriots will be fine. And fined.
Please remember that I told you this in a few weeks: at some point, people will start talking about the Patriots being done and their dynasty being over and Tom Brady losing his touch and yada, yada, yada. And then after about a week of that chatter, Brady will come out and absolutely eviscerate an opponent.

He does this on a frequent basis and then everyone gets back on the bandwagon. Is it a concern that the Pats have a losing record for the first time since 2003? Yes, of course it is. But that also speaks to how well they've played for the last decade. They're quite a good football team, and the losses they've suffered are to a pair of teams who are a combined 5-1 on the season. They could be doing worse (see: the Saints).

As for the past tense version of the headline, expect both Bill Belichick and Brandon Spikes to get a not-so-friendly call from the league office. Belichick aggressively touched an official after the game and he's going to get pegged with a monster fine. He's a perfect poster boy (or perhaps you prefer the term scapegoat?) for the league nailing coaches who don't fall in line with their stance on the refs. The only question is whether or not the NFL decides to hand out a suspension.

Then there's Brandon Spikes. Spikes tweeted on Sunday night asking, "Can someone please tell these f-----g zebras foot locker called and they're needed Back at work !!!! #BreakingPoint" It got retweeted quickly and don't expect it to simmer down any time on Monday. Spikes should also have some answering to do, assuming he isn't mad at the some actual zebra strike right now.
