The defense showed up today and kept the New York Jets and their big mouths out of it. The offense need to be bailed out a few times by the defense but overall it was a great Sunday.

Beasts:

  • BenJarvus Green-Ellis
    • He had 136 yards and 2 touchdowns on the day. Green-Ellis really was the difference maker today.
  • The Defense
    • Even though the defense was night and day at times, as a unit they were levels better in terms of pressure than they’ve been in a while. In fact, they forced seven 3 and outs. I feel like the defense really progressed today. Oh, and Mark Anderson has what now, 3 sacks?
  • The Crowd
    • At different times in the game today the crowd noise was really a difference. There are many things I could say about the Patriots crowd, but today they where good.

Bums:

  • Logan Mankins
    • Mankins was getting beat by Mark Devito. That shouldn’t happen
  • Aaron Hernandez
    • Anytime you cause an interception, then you’re on this list

Answers:

  • Will the Pats secondary shut down Mark Sanchez and his wide receivers?
    • The Jets top receiver had 60 yards and Sanchez was 16 for 166 yards on the day. Job well done by McCourty, Bodden, and co
  • Does Stevan Ridley get more touches than Green-Ellis today?
    • Ridley had 7 runs for 13 yards. Green-Ellis on the other hand was really good today
  • Will Welker stay red hot?
    • Revis did have an impact on Welker, but Welker remained the threat he’s been the past four games in more ways than one
  • Does Dustin Keller have a big game or will he stay forgotten?
    • Keller was a ghost most of the game thanks to Patrick Chung
  • Will Ochocinco have his breakout game?
    • Well, he did have two catches

Thoughts:

  • Gronkowski was sick for the game so that would answer my thoughts on why he wasn’t being targeted as much as he should of been
  • Pat Chung is on the edge of becoming elite
  • Where was Derrick Mason?
  • Tom Brady was sacked four times and hit five times
  • I had Stevan Ridley in today on my fantasy team… I got three points from him
  • The cheerleaders looked good today…
