Neither team can hit good pitching...and neither team can win on the road. Both teams rely on setting values on personel and stick with an economic plan, rarely deviating. Both teams value depth, over starpower. Both teams have one critical achilles heal....the Sox at shortstop, the Patriots at rushing the passer. The result: Both teams beat up the lower echelon teams but struggle with their league's elite. Both teams are solid enough to earn their way into the playoffs, but I fear the Patriots may replicate the Sox' anemic postseason.
