arguably Belichick’s best move and he can thank his former Defensive Coordinator Matt Patricia for the blueprint on this one.
The key for the Patriots is to get pressure on Rivers and force the Chargers to keep their running backs in for pass protection.
Michel kept his legs churning and carried the pile further for more yardage. It paid off with his touchdown run where he carried the pile into the end zone
The Patriots, certainly knew the risks with signing a player with a troubled history such as Gordon’s. They did, however, everything they could as an organization to help him find his way here.
And don’t look now, but that “trash” defense of the Patriots? They’re currently tied with Seattle for 9th best in points allowed with 21.6.
But one area that the Patriots could use Burkhead and his versatility is in the red zone where they’ve been struggling (for them) this season
Julian Edelman had a terrific game, he was finding the soft spots in the zones and was being hammered when he caught the ball.
He started the first drive of the game by going 9-9 and throwing a touchdown pass to Cordarrelle Patterson. His only incompletion of his first 13 was a drop
Andrew Luck be targeting Eric Ebron heavily tonight. Chung will no doubt see a lot of action against Ebron and it should be an intriguing matchup to watch.
Look for White to get a lot of looks against the Miami secondary this week. Brady will try to isolate him on a linebacker and create favorable matchups
The Jaguars defense plays a very Seahawks-esque Cover 3 and they have tremendous speed all over the field.
McCourty is an excellent free safety and makes all the calls for the secondary as the quarterback back there and he’s a team captain and a leader.
He’s outstanding in run support, filling the holes quickly and a violent, punishing hitter in the trenches. He led the team with 74 tackles, (43 solos) and seven passes defensed with three interceptions.
LB Shea McClellin, who had been on IR since the end of preseason, had suffered a setback in his return and now he too will be likely lost for the season.
Van Noy and McClellin will probably be asked to fill in at times as edge rushers (Hightower as well) so the team may opt for an extra linebacker.
