Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full story here.
This Patriots offense is far from excellent right now.
Why? Well, for a variety of reasons:
1. The offensive line play isn’t as stellar as in years past, partly due to injuries.
2. The running game is nonexistent. (They rank 21st in Football Outsiders’ rush offense DVOA.)
3. The passing game lacks explosiveness and any type of vertical component.
You can’t really blame the Patriots for all of these problems as they’ve had a rotating carousel of receivers and tight ends on a week-to-week basis and sorely miss Rob Gronkowski. Tom Brady is also a year older and dealing with what looks like a real elbow issue. But the timing is off.
