    Total Overall
    Patriots: 370
    Opponents: 260



    Conclusions

    The Patriots didn’t do perform significantly better offensively in the second half of games than in the first. The theory that the Patriots gained advantage by analyzing signal tape over halftime just doesn’t hold water statistically.

    This is especially true when compared with the offensive output of the Patriots’ 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 I’ve been known to miscalculate.

    I saw this post on another forum as proof that they were making adjustments at halftime. So basically, be careful who you share this with. Statistics don't help when revealed to idiots.

    I'm happy that someone put that BS crybaby Myth to rest.
    If one subtract a couple games where we were heavilly favored then we even perform worse (Jacksonville and NYJ games).
