Clark Judge calls it a trend

I'd call it simplistic reporting for someone to lazy to figure out the whole story. Look at who they played on the road, and who they played at home. Did they win those games? Little details like how the Patriots started the year with the toughest schedule ever. That might make a difference to the 'trend'.

National Football League - CBS
I know New England is a trendy pick to reach its fourth Super Bowl in five years, but here's what could stop the Patriots from getting there: 1) Tom Brady is a different quarterback on the road, and New England must play its next two away from Gillette Stadium to reach Detroit. OK, OK, so Brady is a perfect 10 in the playoffs and beat Pittsburgh in two AFC Championship games at Pittsburgh (once, with help from Drew Bledsoe), but look what happened this year. Including this weekend's playoff game, Brady has 17 touchdowns and two interceptions at home; on the road he has 12 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Yeah, I'd call that a trend.
