    I may be wrong but I believe the Patriots defense no matter how bad they look at times and how low ranked they are are actually leading the league in FEWEST points allowed in the 4th quarter....

    So far IIAC they have given up 24 Points in 5 games,that is better than Pittsburgh & Baltimore

    When the game is on the line late in the game the defense has not broken so far and has not allowed more than 1 score,its the other 3 quarters I hope to see improvement on.

    I think a partial explanation is the platooning that Belichick, the DC, is doing. Everyone is just fresher in the 4th Quarter. Last year they were wearing down by then and other teams were catching up and passing us by. On the DL Wilfork, Warren, Wright, Brace. Pryor,and Deadrick are seeing minutes. At OLB Cunningham, Ninkovich Crabel and TBC are playing, but TBC is being rested for availability on obvious pass rushes.

    The secondary has not had as much platooning, but hopefully it will, as players get healthy.

    But according to the buffoons in Boston media, the Ravens just gifted it away by being conservative. It has nothing to do with our players, coaches. It is all the opponent's large heartedness.

    Clueless. Just clueless analysts. No brains.
