Snooooooow Perfect!

Love them or hate them, the New England Patriots are a perfect team this year. At 13-0, it's unlikely the Pats' unblemished record will be tarnished this weekend in the Spy vs. Spy game at home against the hapless Jets. Gang Green certainly will not be able to stop New England's offense, but Eric Mangini's club is hoping to get a little help from the weather in Foxborough where currently there is a heavy snow warning and early forecasts for Sunday are calling for snow, ice, lots of wind and a high temperature of 35 degrees. But if the Jets are counting on horrid weather conditions to help stop pretty boy Tom Brady and the Patriots, they better fix their eyes on lots more illegally-obtained video tape. The Boston Globe today gives us word that the Patriots are a perfect – there's that word again – 9-0 in snow games since 1978 with some thanks, of course, going to a convict and a tuck. Here's the list:

• Dec. 4, 2005 -- 16-3 win over the Jets
• Jan. 16, 2005 -- 20-3 playoff win over the Colts
• Jan. 18, 2004 -- 24-14 playoff win over the Colts
• Dec. 14, 2003 -- 27-13 win over the Jaguars
• Dec. 7, 2003 -- 12-0 win over the Dolphins
• Jan. 19, 2002 -- 16-13 overtime playoff win over the Raiders
• Dec. 4, 1983 -- 7-0 win over the Saints
• Dec. 12, 1982 -- 3-0 win over the Dolphins
• Dec. 10, 1978 -- 26-24 win over the Bills
