The Patriots offense obviously struggled on Sunday, with the team finishing with a mere 61 total yards offensively in the first half and going into the locker room down 24-7 at halftime.

For those wondering if that was their lowest output ever in the first two quarters of play, Mike Reiss of ESPN pointed out via Twitter that Sunday's performance wasn't the worst, but it's been quite a long time since they've played that poorly. 

They had 26 yards in the 1st half vs. Miami (Oct. 6, 2002), 29 in 1st half vs. the New York Giants (Oct. 12, 2003), and 51 at Buffalo (Sept. 7, 2003).

Thanks to Mike for getting us that information.
