So, there's been a lot of talk this week about how successful the Patriots were running the ball against the Bills. Throughout, it's been mentioned that they took advantage of the Bills playing primarily in the nickel, which made running a little easier. Looking at the snap counts for our defense on Sunday, we were also playing primarily in the nickel. Hightower played only 9 snaps before getting hurt, and his replacement (Tracy White) only played 8. I think Niko tosses in a couple, but it was essentially four down lineman, mayo and spikes, then five defensive backs. Despite this, we held a pretty good running team to 98 yards on the ground with a 3.6 ypc. I know I'm not breaking any huge ground with this, but our ability to effectively contain the run while still utilizing primarily a pass D formation is going to be very handy down the road.
