    When looking at the positional groupings that the Patriots utilized in their 23-20 overtime win over the Ravens, it highlights how the attack is featuring more multiple tight end packages this season:

    2 WR/2 TE/1 RB – 47 of 76
    3 WR/1 TE/1 RB -- 18 of 76
    1 WR/3 TE/1 RB -- 8 of 76
    1 WR/2 TE/1 FB/1 RB -- 2 of 76
    3 TE/1 FB/1 RB -- 1 of 76

    ““The tight end is basically the queen on the chessboard in our game right now,” Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “You see what New England is trying to do with those guys [Hernandez and Gronkowski]. Bill understands the value of those guys and that’s why he drafted them. That’s the direction our game is going so that you can play any way you want depending on the way the defense lines up and what kind of personnel the defense has on the field.””
