What is your take on this, as well as what is more beneficial to the Pats? IMO, there are two reasons why I think the Pats should always receive: 1. I like the chance to go up 7-0 or 3-0 on a team early than being down by 7 or 3. 2. It seems as soon as the Pats are down in a game, they abandon the run. EDIT: Good points about deferring, with a chance of back to back scoring drives.
