I believe 10 sacks, 4 picks and 4 dropped picks the last two weeks along with a ton of pressures and only allowing 3 TDs is excellent without Mayo, Wilfork, and Kelly. And keep in mind, Devin McCourty and Alfonzo Dennard did not play in the game against Buffalo, and Kyle Arrington left with an injury. Additionally, did they even have film on Thad? I don't think so, and he is a mobile quarterback that escaped 3 more possible sacks. In the post season, everybody with the exception of Andrew Luck are sitting ducks and won't be able to get away and even being mobile he was still sacked 4 times. And did you know we are 4th in sacks and 9th in overall total defense with a bye, giving players time to get healthy and our staff time to game plan which nobody is better at game planning then Bill Belichick. Also note some of the players that have become playmakers this season, Sealver Siliga, Chris Jones 6 sacks for a DT, Logan Ryans 5 picks, dropped one, Jamie Collins (like what he is doing) and Duron Harmon (very good young safety) just to name a few. And I actually like linebackers as of late (Fletcher is underrated). Secondary wise, Talib is healthy and can lock down anybody, Dennard will be back, Logan Ryans is a young playmaker and McCourty is one of the premiere safeties in the game. I feel like with Ninkovich, Chandler and those guys up front they can play with the back-end as seen against Baltimore. You topple that with the fact that Matt Patricia, Pepper Johnson and Bill Belichick have been getting the most out of their players, as they have gained experienced, have enough veteran leadership (Mayo, Wilfork still travels with the team, McCourty, Ninkovich, Andre Carter) and as mentioned before are the best in game planning and I like our chances against anybody defensively, including Peyton Manning as they made him look very average in Foxboro.
