    Why the Patriots won't score more than 21 points

    December 06, 07
    By: Statistics Man

    It’s no secret that the New England offensive attack is the most feared in football. Tom Brady is having an MVP year and the Pats are breaking records left and right. Throw in the fact that they’re 12-0 and you’ve got a whole lot of talk about that elusive “perfect season”.

    But something happened Monday night against the Ravens that got me to thinking. Did you notice that the Pats we’re having an “off” game, too? At least that’s what people like Steve Young has said.

    While it’s true that every team goes through a collective lull during the season at one point or another, I’m noticing a trend that I’d like to share with you. The Patriots offense is not nearly as potent against a more physical defense. Now, this may not be the most exclusive thought in the football universe, but I want to put my two cents in on this.

    The table below supports my theory. I seperated the games that New England has played against more physical defenses (IND, PHI & BAL) from the rest of their schedule. What I found was very intriguing and i think you will, too. NOTE: I did not include their game against Dallas as a more physical matchup because the Dallas defense is actually not a very physical unit.


    New England Offensive Production Comparison

    As you can see, the Patriots offense, across the board, does not perform as well against a more physical defense. The only statistic that was higher was pass attempts. And notice that when Brady threw more he actually completed less passes (75% to 59%).

    I hope I don't eat my words, but.

    I feel our guys O&D will be fired up like when we went into Denver during our SB run. *** kicking for 60 minutes all 3 sides of the ball.

    Let's hope we don't pump ourselves right out of the game by being too worked up that we don't stick with the game plan and press the issue too much.
