Turns out, the Patriots only care about TEAM.
That's the thing about this Patriots team: The players honestly don't care who gets credit, just about doing their jobs and winning games. And, over everything else, that's why the Pats are two days away from their chance to finish 19-0.
Interesting theory, I wish I'd heard it before. It would have really influenced how I think about the NFL. This moral/intellectual dimension really intrigues me! All the other teams are filled with selfish bums. They just care about credit and stats and ... and... other bad things!
