The End Of An Era For The Patriots?

The Patriots had another win yesterday, beating Houston 41-28 to advance to the AFC Championship game. The victory happened without key players Danny Woodhead and Rob Gronkowski, who were both injured early in the first quarter and did not return.

Of course, in New England, we’ve come to expect this — but at least one person in the know is warning that we should enjoy it while it lasts.

In a piece for WBUR’s Cognoscenti opinion page, sports journalist Peter May writes that “[New England is] — in all probability — nearing the end of one of the most extraordinarily successful runs in the history of the National Football League”. He’s urging Patriots fans to sit back and enjoy the end of an era.
