The theory that the Patriots gained advantage by analyzing signal tape over halftime just doesnâ€™t hold water statistically. This is especially true when compared with the offensive output of the Patriotsâ€™ opponents in the second half. These opponents more than DOUBLED their total scoring in the second half of the game versus the first. Someone may want to double check my math because Iâ€™ve been known to miscalculate.
