They have some major flaws to fix and any of those 3 teams (Steelers, Jags and Colts) all have the offense schemes (passing + solid running game) and defense schemes (can stop the run plus being able to get to the QB with only DL pressure plus solid blitz packages and a physical secondary) that hit the Patriot's weaknesses and are more than capable of beating them. But don't take my word for it, take Rodney's....
"I felt that this was the first time all year that we got bullied," Patriots safety Rodney Harrison said. "We can't allow teams to run the ball and pound it like that. There are times this is a mano-on-mano battle and they were winning it. Tonight's game showed we have a lot of problems and we're going to look at the film and make corrections before we play Pittsburgh."
