Abel expects today’s game to be a close one that will be decided by a field goal and “could go either way.” How well Brady performs on the first three plays he has the ball will be a good indicator of whether it’s an “on” or “off game” for New England’s star quarterback.

“And we shouldn’t feel bad if they lose, because they did an awesome job despite what they had,” Abel said.

“Actually, we should feel proud of them. I’m surprised they have gotten this far. If they win, this will be the most exciting season in Pats history,” he said.
