The new skins Patriots are rolling out. Super Bowl candidate or overrated? Let’s take a look! – The Athletic

New England Patriots their win fifth game in a row Thursday night, off Atlanta Falcons, 25-0. Over the past five weeks, they surpassed their opponent by 125 points.

Patriots next four games against Tennessee Titans, NS Buffalo Bills (twice), and Indianapolis Colts. At 7-4, a playoff spot seemed possible, and the top seed at AFC was within reach.

So how good is this team? What is the Patriots formula for success? Do they have a Super Bowl ceiling? Or is it more likely that they will return to Earth within the next six weeks?

Let’s take a look. Numbers provided by TruMedia and Pro Football Focus unless otherwise noted.

What do the numbers say about how good the patriots really are?

There are a number of metrics we can use to go beyond the team’s record and measure how well a team is actually performing:

Expected Points Added (EPA) per game: 4th

Difference per game: 2nd

DVOA: day 5

Note that DVOA is only through Week 10.

Those numbers all support the idea that the Patriots are operating like a first-year team.
