Was a legitimate but very obscure call.

Bill Belichick almost cost his team the game tonight and was lucky to get out of there with a win. He decided to run 3 times instead of having Brady throw on 3rd down and gave the ball back to the Jets with 1:25 and no timeouts.


I never been a fan of the playing it straight strategy

The flip side is that if he throws on 3rd down you run the risk of incompletion along w the clock stopping...if the Jers win because of that strategy, everyone would come on here and say he shoulda played it safe, lol.

Both options have their risks.

Looked like Brady had several nice weapons last night he could use. LaFell, Gronk, Vereen stepped up nicely, Edelman, Amendola. When is the coaching staff going to get over Aaron Dobson mouthing off and let him play? That happened a month ago. Dobson is going to be another great addition once he actually gets some playing time.

If they had thrown an incompletion there, the Jets would have had 40 seconds more to work with and almost certainly would have won the game. If they had gotten their kicker ten more yards, the ball would not have been coming out so low and would be very difficult to block.

Good win, but I am a bit concerned about how easily they ran the ball on us. Hopefully getting 10 days off now will help them straighten out the defense a bit, they need to adjust to not having Mayo. With the Bears coming up, I wonder how they will play defense. Revis on Marshall and Browner with Safety help on Jeffrey? Who covers Martellus Bennett? Jamie Collins or Pat Chung maybe? Or maybe they use Browner on him and put Dennard or Ryan on Jeffrey.

I think our offense will move it well on them though.

I was hoping they saved a little bit of that offensive fire power for Denver next week. I felt like they should have held back a little when it was clear the game was out of reach.

I disagree, I think if you take your foot off the gas, you just kill your own momentum. Forecast to this point heavily favors the Pats, let's hope it holds out and we get the 20+mph winds they are calling for!
