    OL played a great game yesterday. Great run blocking and provided good protection for Brady and good pass blocking. Well done boys!...GO PATS!

    Throw Crumpler in there too, he had some sick blocks.

    Even Matt Light, who has a propensity to look a bit turnstile-ish at times looked excellent, I believe against Jared Allen for most of the game. Granted this the Allen of years past, but Light had several good blocks that I saw.

    The run blocking on the first BJGE touchdown was beautiful as well.

    Block of the day goes to Cunningham for lighting up AP on the McCourty return though. :)

    The offensive line struggled in the first half IMO. Evans for Minnesota was a beast and blew up a lot of plays.

    They used 3 tight end sets for the majority of the second half, which is when the running game emerged.

    According to Reiss, the Patriots used the 3 TE set on only 3 plays all game:

    Crumpler's blocking has been key. The Pats have used 2-TE sets overloaded to one side, with Crumpler sliding down the line to bolster the interior pass protection. On running plays, Crumpler typically slides to the point of attack.
