    Two-back sets excel in red zone by Mike Reiss for espn boston

    If it's working in the red zone, maybe the Pats should use it more on the rest of the field in short-yardage situations - especially now that Welker is unavailable.

    On a side note, it is nice to see the offense settling for field goals less often when in the red zone.

    Also, the Pats did not use an empty backfield at all against Houston, and used a 4-wide set only once.

    Fred Taylor looked good running in the RZ. He has great vision...

    No reason not to pound the ball. We've got the horses and it will help the passing game and Brady's protection.

    Turnovers are not an improvement on field goals. ;)
