Don’t look now, but the New England Patriots are in the mix for the top spot in the AFC. Through six weeks, the Pats were just 2-4 and looked destined to miss the postseason for the second straight year. Then the defense stepped up while things seemed to slow down for rookie QB Mac Jones, and now they are riding a six-game winning streak as we enter the last stretch of the 2021 regular season.
