Against Manning tonight the TOP was 36 minutes for the Pats and 24 minutes for Manning. The Patriots ran 23 more offensive plays than the Broncos. THAT is how you beat great QB's. You keep them off the field. THAT is how the Patriots USED TO GAMEPLAN when they were beating great QB's like Peyton Manning and winning Super Bowls. Your offense eats the clock and keeps the other O off the field by using a ground game/short passing game. Your defense gets turnovers. For those of you who, like me, have been screaming for the Patriots to stop making this team all about Brady and a razzle dazzle passing game and wanting them to return to playing Patriot football I say "take a bow". The Patriots have finally returned to their championship roots. It means only good things for January and February Sweeeet!!!!!!!!!!!!
