    That is the number of offensive plays the Pats ran yesterday. That is an awesome number, totally awesome.

    Here are the number of plays that were run by all other NFL teams in all of this week's games.

    76, 54, 63, 65, 61, 89, 55, 68, 54, 71, 56, 68, 81, 48, 62, 52, 73, 53, 46, 63, 65, 69, 69, 67.

    BTW, the 89 in that list is NOT by the Pats, it is by the Indianapolis Colts. (Yup, go figure that one out.)

    BTW, the Pats ran 77 plays the prior week, against the Bills.

    I am pointing out that those 89 plays ran is an awsome number of plays and by itself demonstrates control of the game. The score does not say as much as those number of plays. Highly inordinate, very, very highly inordinate.

    You're saying both colts and pats ran 89 plays? Mike Reiss wrote 94 plays on offense. I guess that includes kneel downs?

    Mike says that we ran 94, not counting kneel downs.

    Correct, Mike Reiss includes penalties because it's still interesting to see how often players make it onto the field (even if the play ends up in a accepted holding penalty).
