Patriots have averaged over 35 points since midseason, and the Giants allowed more points than anyone but the Bills, Colts, Vikings, Panthers, Rams(just 7 less than the 2-14 Rams), Bucs, Raiders.
Since mid season the Patriots scored 35.9 ppg against teams that allowed an average of 22.6ppg. The Giants allowed 25 ppg.
In fact, for 10 straight games the Patriots have scored more points than the opponent's pts allowed average in each game.
Think about that for a minute.
For 10 straight games the Patriots scored more points that the opponent allowed per game.
Over that time they exceeded the opponents average ppg allowed by 13.3 per game.
The Giants allowed 2.4 ppg more than the average defense the Pats were putting 35.9 per game up against, and only 2 of the Pats 10 opponents had Ds that were worse than the Giants in point allowed.
How this isn't being seen as a game where the Patriots offense should dominate is really surprising.
