We can usually count on the Pats being smart about the clock, but the Pats pace in the second half, and especially the 4th quarter was strange. Almost like Philly in SB 39. Because you get a possession and then the other team does, you have to look at the game as a series of back-and-forth possessions. By running the clock down in the 4th quarter, they left themselves with about zero room for error. They should have been in hurry up as long as they were down 2 scores in the second half.
