Current Patriots Twitter Feed:

@chrisaug Rough week last week vs. HOU. With healthy Mitchell & Amendola, thinking is they have some insurance there.

What does deactivation of Michael Floyd mean for Patriots? https://t.co/aq3KifHnsr via @WEEI

Ryan Shazier going shirtless in warmups https://t.co/ol9U9UVSrN

Had been struggling with injury earlier this year, but was not on Friday's injury report. https://t.co/SoOhsSy7EZ

Mitchell is in for Floyd. Otherwise, it's the same inactive list as last week. Pats are healthy.

@PaulM8712 If they hold on, this is going to be one of those years when we look back and say, "Wait, who won the NFC again?"

@JSproul_ no. momentum of the kick has to carry the ball into the end zone for it to be a touchback.

Stealing my sneaky hot take from PFW in Progress this week. Nice job!!! https://t.co/rbFeUC5or1

Malcolm Mitchell will play for the first time since Dec. 24

Michael Floyd is inactive after his rough game last weekend. Patriots rolling with Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Mitchell and Amendola at WR

No surprises on inactives list. WR Michael Floyd a notable scratch. This was foreshadowed on Saturday in this story: https://t.co/nHzlCTCRBP

Floyd was brought in for insurance. All WRs healthy so he sits. #ppgs

    The Pats' red zone defense continues to be horrendous. Seems like the opposition walks away with a TD every time they penetrate inside the Pats' 20-30 yard line. As of now, I think the Pats are 32nd in the league in red zone defense (although I could be wrong, since I can't find this stat anywhere).

    The issue hasn't really received much attention on this board. How do the Pats solve their red zone problems?

    i was also very suprised when i heard that we were 32nd in this area of our defense. I am curious on a few things regarding this stat.

    how many attempts in the redzone?

    Does the fact that the Pats have had such large leads in most of their games contribute to the lack of intensity of the defense? are they maybe conceding the TD when the leads are large?

    I have a theory that the blowouts have had some impact on the defense and the sometimes less the brilliant defensive play.

    The surprising element of this is that NE in the last 7 years has always had a solid bend-but-don't-break, stingy defense that became toughest inside the red zone. This is a completely different situation. I'm hoping this is just a stage for this team, and it can be corrected.

    This is not the case. NE has allowed TDs to most every team on first half drives into the RZ, including NY, BUff, Miami, Dallas, Balt, Philly....

    As far as I can recall, the only teams that didn't score a RZ TD in the first half were Cleveland, Indy and SD. (surprisingly enough considering the quality of the offenses. Actaully Buffalo also weren't in the RZ on their first half TD.
