    Hernandez played, but it was only his second game back from his injury. He still was not 100%.

    Hernandez played, Spikes was hurt in the 3rd quarter when it was 3-0 I believe, Chung was hurt in the 4th quarter right before Ballards Tyree impression I remember correctly. He came back for a few plays but then didnt play until December

    Patriots declared RB Kevin Faulk, WR Taylor Price, QB Ryan Mallett, OG Donald Thomas, DL Shaun Ellis, LB Jermaine Cunningham and LB Dane Fletcher inactive for Week 9 against the Giants.

    those were inactives but doesn't mean those who were active were healthy or played up to potential.

    The Giants were missing some players to injury as I recall.

    It was actually his 4th game back, but it was pretty clear the injury was still bothering him.

    The Giants players who missed that game (Nicks, etc.) but are back now are clearly more significant/valuable than the Patriots players who missed that game but are back now.

    Which is good for them and all, but at the end of the day the difference is likely whether the Patriots can avoid turning the ball over, and keep Brady upright, etc.

    The Pats lost four starters on defense by the final two drives (the only TD drives by the Giants). You listed Chung and Spikes, but the Pats lost Barrett for the year and also Guyton went down who was starting in replacement of Spikes who went down earlier in the game.

    People made too much of their missing players though. They labeled Nicks as their #1 WR when it is clearly Cruz and Bradshaw has been splitting a lot of carries with Jacobs since he returned from injury. Bradshaw has been decent in the playoffs, but not really a difference maker. Nicks was big in the first two playoff games, but not so much last week.

    On offense, Hernandez and Woodhead were not nearly as effective as they have been lately.

    Defense was doing fine until Chung, Spikes, and others went down.

    Also got killed in the turnover department. So I would say our heads were missing as well, overall we have a much better turnover differential than the Giants.

    No Jersey Selected

    Depending on your definition of "Missing," I'd add Albert Haynesworth ...

    He's been missing in a much more helpful way since.

    Also, IIRC, this might have been the game after which TFB gave up on Ocho -- couple of attempts just didn't work out.

    Also I think this was Mayo's first game back from his injury, too.

    All three played.


    I recall Chung had a good hit on Ballard.

    Spikes had a NASTY hit on Ballard.

    Hernandez scored a TD.

    OH, but the Giants didn't have Nicks and Bradshaw.

    I forget how many turnovers that we had, but I know we GOT two of our own (Muffed Punt, Arrington End Zone INT). Therefore, I find it hard to believe that turnovers was the difference.
