What do we need to do to beat the Patriots

Recommended Posts

Besides scoring more than them, what can we do to win ??

 

You have to play perfect football because the Patriots don't beat themselves. You can't beat yourself. So no penalties, no concentration lapses, no bad plays. You have to play great situational football.

 

It's all about playing complementary football, so special team, defense and offense have to play well to beat New England.

 

You want a ball-control offense that uses both the running game and passing game to kill the clock to keep Tom Brady off the field.

 

You want your defense to limit the damage the Patriots offense can do. They need to create pressure up the middle so Brady doesn't have a clean pocket to step up into. The defense needs to get some key stops on 3rd down and when Belichick goes for it on 4th down, some stops on 4th down. A couple of turnovers would be very helpful.

 

The special teams have to flip the field. You want the punter to consistently place them inside the 20-yard line and the coverage team to limit the damage the Patriots punt return game does. The punt return team has maximize the return and try to flip the field for the offense. The FG team has to hit long-distance field goals when called upon because it's going to be a close game every point is valuable. It's hard to block field goals but if the FG defense team can do everything in their power to make the life the Patriots FG kicker difficult it helps.

Even though they have to get past the Bengals first, the word for the day against the Patriots should be PAIN! Anyone who touches the ball, needs to go down hard.

 

Having said that, lets watch how the game is called.
