With the NFL regular season fast approaching, we at SportsUntapped are taking our crystal balls out of storage and examining each team’s full 16-game schedule to prognosticate how the 2011 season will play out. We’ll look at all 32 teams and reveal each one’s final record. Next up: the defending AFC East champion New England Patriots.

New England Patriots

Last year’s record: 14-2.

Vegas Over/Under on 2011 Regular Season Wins: 11.5.

First four games:
Sept. 12 at Miami, 7 p.m.
Sept. 18 San Diego, 4:15 p.m.
Sept. 25 at Buffalo, 1 p.m.
Oct. 2 at Oakland, 4:15 p.m.

The Patriots open up with three of their first four on the road, but should have no problems getting off to a fast start and at least a 3-1 record.

Second four games:
Oct. 9 N.Y. Jets, 4:15 p.m.
Oct. 16 Dallas, 4:15 p.m.
Oct. 23 BYE
Oct. 30 at Pittsburgh, 4:15 p.m.
Nov. 6 N.Y. Giants, 4:15 p.m.

New England’s schedule gets a lot tougher here, but they will have two weeks to prepare to go to Pittsburgh. I think they definitely beat the Cowboys and Giants, and end up 6-2 at midseason.

First four games of the second half:

Nov. 13 at N.Y. Jets, 8:20 p.m.-x
Nov. 21 Kansas City, 8:30 p.m.
Nov. 27 at Philadelphia, 4:15 p.m.
Dec. 4 Indianapolis, 8:20 p.m.-x

More tough road games and another meeting with Peyton Manning and the rival Colts — I see the Patriots dropping two of these four and at 8-4 through 12 games.

Last four games:

Dec. 11 at Washington, 1 p.m.
Dec. 18 at Denver, 4:15 p.m.
Dec. 24 Miami, 1 p.m.
Jan. 1 Buffalo, 1 p.m.

If the Patriots still have anything left to play for in Week 17, there’s no reason they shouldn’t win all these games to get to 12-4 with a tiebreaker determining if they win the division again or give way to the Jets.
