When you think about this Patriots defense and the potential of getting into a playoff OT game, it has to help the Pats. This is a bend-but-don't-break defense. If a team wins the coin-toss, chances are decent that they could get into FG position. With the new OT rules, the Patriots can get the ball back and Brady can break you with a TD. Even though Belichick poked fun at the new rules, he has to know it helps a team that gives up so many yards on defense.
