Of course the Pats offense is worse this year than last year.I would take the Patriots offense from last year over this one. The OL hasn't been doing good on protection, receivers haven't been getting separation leading to tight windows, and Brady doesn't seem to have faith in any WR besides Edelman. I believe it was an article I read, because I haven't been able to watch any Patriots game being on west coast, that said Brady hasn't been looking at receivers when they're running open as he doesn't trust them so I don't know how much stock is in that.
Edit, Rex Ryan does a better job than I of wording and describing it.

I just hope for a competitive playoffs and Patriots vs Saints/Packers.
But the defense is so much better, it makes up for that. Special teams as well maybe. Last year Blake Bortles put up 40 on the Pats defense. Detroit decimated them as well. KC scored 50 in a loss.
This year they are the best in the league and are guaranteed 2-5 turnovers a game. Teams are going into Pats games with the knowledge that at least one of their possessions will be given to Brady on the 20 yard line.
And it goes to show how much of a joke the whole "QB is responsible for a teams record" logic is.
