After the first two field goals I thought that was going to come back to bite us - I'm glad it didn't.
I think the Patriots could've been more successful if they had gone run-heavy like they did against the Colts. The defense was missing a ton of tackles and made Blount look like Lynch.
The pass rush was at least affecting Brady. Even though they didn't get a ton of sacks, there were some hits and batted balls, a couple of which floated in the air for what seemed like forever.
The biggest issue I saw, apart from the red zone offense, was the matchup with Gronk. I get playing Hyde against him, but Burnett was matched up with him at least twice (that I saw) and got absolutely burned. I think we all know at this point that Burnett is not capable of matching up with anyone and should strictly be in deep zone or blitzing.
