    These are the most pertinent parts :

    "The most impressive aspect of the Patriots' long drives all season is the fact that they have had 14 possessions start inside the 20 and they have scored a touchdown 78.5 percent of the time. Keep in mind that the league is averaging about 13 percent in this category. The top teams in the NFL inside the red zone don't score touchdowns at this rate.

    So how are the Colts doing in this area? For the season, Indianapolis has started 12 drives from inside its own 20 and only produced two touchdowns. Their 16 percent success rate is just a hair over the league average."

    How original: Posing as a Patriot fan.

    You could have at least kept it quiet until the game, loser.

    Simple Polianesque solution:

    We're unveiling our 79 yard field next week, no 80+ yard drives for you!

    I like this stat but just a quick question....

    Wouldn't we have the highest Red Zone Rate?

    How can we can we have a higher % from inside our own 20 than inside the opponents 20?

    You have a very high 20+ yard TD rate? No red zone on those.

    If a drive ends in a TD without getting inside the red zone (e.g. 22 yd TD pass) it doesn't count toward the red zone rate.

    Exactly. I remember a number of Brady to Moss touchdowns that fit this profile.
