@Radas_cz try it and see how wrong it goes

@4RingsOrGTFO Chung drew Bell in 1-on-1 situations in passing game last time. Would expect more of same

@MikeGiardi stud, no Q. They just blew the fits & whole L side got washed, creating a pocket. The ol' use ur buddy, don't cut him off, etc

Big Chung game Sunday. Very big.

@chatham58 point being, still had him dead to rights and whiffed. multiple times

Not sure you can afford to bring this many in the box with Ben at QB https://t.co/MKQVxRGR20

Misplayed. Down safety and corner both with outside leverage, same side. Poor rep by the DL, convoy https://t.co/lCJphk3J7P

@ClarenceWhorley exactly, so to get anyone to believe in the Patriots opponent they have to give them a bunch of free points.

    Scouting the Colts' Defense
    By: John Morgan

    The Colts have some familiar quality names on defense; do they have enough talent to hold the NFL's top offense in check enough to win on Sunday?...

    It looks a lot like the Patriots get a chance to play against their own defense. The Colts and the Patriots have made every QB they've faced look like Drew Brees with a 97 passer rating. Brady ought to have a good day if the offensive line can hold its own without Mankins and Connolly.

    The major area of concern is the pass rush. Besides that the Colts stink against the running game and best of all they give up big chunks per pass attempt. They are not the Patriots in that regard, but they haven't faced Brady and his band of Questionable receivers.

    The Colts haven't played a quality team since the beginning of October when they beat the Packers - at home. The more closely I look at the Colts, the less I think of them. They have some key players but lots of second-level talent and castoffs that can be exploited.

    If Wes Welker's ankle is not right, I'd sit him against this defense and fatten him up for Thanksgiving in the big city. Against the Colts secondary, this is a great spot for Lloyd to have a breakout game.
