    Found this on http://www.reddit.com/r/patriots

    Surprised at a lot of this. We were getting more yards per rush with Ridley/BJGE last year than this year.

    Also that defensive passer rating of 96.2 was surprising as I didn't think that our pass defense was that much worse than last year.

    Less passing & rushing yards and less points given up says it's a better defense to me, passer rating is pretty much a useless stat with how flawed it is.

    It's missing 2 key stats though - turnovers and 3rd down %.

    Tougher schedule remaining ahead than this time last year, but that's OK. Gonna be a fun second half.

    Though only three games on the road. One trip to NY and two to FL. Nice easy travel schedule. We go to NYJ and MIA in back to back weeks, but only leave NE once in the final month.

    I like the difference in passing/running % and the yards per game for the mas well. I assume Brady is throwing less, but that may not be the case as their average number of plays may be up. May need to go to a little bit more running over the next couple months. to try and get that ratio to 60/40

    +13 takeaway/giveaway vs even last year. Now that is a real change

    That seems to be the one that stands out the most really. Awesome stat.

    Hopefully we can continue that trend. Turnovers are a very volatile stat.

    The yds /carry difference is prob. due to the fact that the PATS are running more
    and hence the D's are not playing for a pass all the time like last year. That we
    are getting very good production from the running game is also saving TB's body!

    That defensive ypc stat is incredible. They're only allowin 3.5 ypc? If the young players in the secondary get it together, the defense could be very solid by the end of the season

    I thought the going take was that Pats had a creampuff schedule (or at least 3/4 of it creampuff) when they come back off bye. But compared to last year .526 to .369 it looks a lot tougher.
