    Based on the above picture I'd say a lot of our success was due to the Bills playing with 10 guys on the field. :) If only we could get more teams to play us that way . . .

    According to the picture NE adjusted properly and only put 10 on the field. Either that or the field is actually wider then the picture and theres a Wr/Cb not shown.

    The Patriots will probably never be a running team with TB here. They just need to be able to hurt opponents with the run when they come out in a formation like the 4-2-5, and for the first time in a while it looks like they have a run game capable of that.
