The New England Patriots are a defense-dominated team, and it seems that some people have difficulty understanding this concept of NFL – and then they do not need a top-five offensive to win football matches. In the sixth week, the Patriots finished eighth in the DVOA rating for Football Outsiders. In their 35:14 victory against the New York Giants they put on Thursday evening on 427 meters.
This device is not nearly as bad as some might think. They are just not as good as their defense. The Patriots are still relatively well rounded compared to the rest of the NFL. That's why they stand 6-0.
Could the Patriots use upgrades on their team? Of course. This is how professional sports work. If you do not play Madden with deactivated trading logic, your team must be deficient. And the patriots will undoubtedly try to fill at least one of these gaps with a close.
But if not? The 201
Here's our full list of Take Aways Week 6 with readings about Pro Football Focus.
LT Marshall Newhouse: Sack, QB hit
TE Ryan Izzo: Sack, Rush
LG Joe Thuney: Sack
RB James White: QB hit
RG Shaq Mason: Hurry up
RT Marcus Cannon: Hurry up
– Center Ted Karras, who led Sony Michel and full back Jakob Johnson, did not allow pressure.
– Quarterback Tom Brady was under pressure only at 18.2 percent of the dropbacks. That's a drop of over 30 percent in weeks 4 and 5.
– Tom Brady left with a 31-of-41 interception for 334 yards. Of his 10 incompleteness, there were three drops, so he had a high accuracy rate.
– The wide receiver Julian Edelman dropped two passes. Michel dropped a pass.
– Brady was 3 out of 5 for 82 yards with a low pass interception.
– Jakobi Meyers has hit 2 of 2 deep targets for 46 yards. Edelman hit 1 of 3 deep goals for 36 yards.
– Brady released the ball in 2.42 seconds. This is also his seasonal average.
– Brady did not throw a touchdown pass, but scored two touchdowns on QB sneakers.
– If Josh Gordon misses the time with a knee injury, Meyers could gain momentum as a legitimate target on the Patriots Offensive. He impressed Thursday night with four catches for 54 yards.
Brandon Bolden: 3.67 yards after contact per carry, one forced miss
Sony Michel: 2.23 yards after contact per carry, four forced missed tackles
James White: 2 yards Seven Forced Missed Tackles Per Carry
– Five of Seven White's forced shots came as recipients. He has two stretcher and nine catches.
– Michel ended the game with 22 transfers for 86 yards, but 26 of these were added as the Patriots' last true game. Squats followed.
– The Patriots turned to Bolden and Brady as they approached the finish line. This is not a good sign for Michel. Maybe Rex Burkhead will be the goalkeeper when he returns after a foot injury.
LB Jamie Collins: three stops, missed tackle
DT Danny Shelton: two stops
FS Devin McCourty: two stops
DE Deatrich Wise: two stops
DT Lawrence Guy: Stop
LB John Simon: Stop
LB Kyle Van Noy: Stop
LB Dont & # 39; a Hightower: Stop
CB Jason McCourty: Stop
CB Jonathan Jones: Stop
LB Yes & # 39; Whaun Bentley: Stop
FS Duron Harmon: Failed Device
– The Patriots held back giants on 14 trages for 46 yards. QB Daniel Jones also wore the ball twice for 8 yards.
– Collins had a forced fumble that Van Noy recovered for a landing.
LB Kyle Van Noy: Sack, two QB hits, three rush
LB Dont & # 39; a Hightowr: QB hit, two rush
LB Yes & # 39; Whaun Bentley: QB hit, two rushes
DE Deatrich Wise: two QB hits, rush
LB Jamie Collins: three rushes
DT Danny Shelton: QB hit, rush
LB Shilique Calhoun: QB Hit, Rush
LB John Simon: Two Rushes
LB Chase Winovich: Two Rushes
FS Devin McCourty: QB Hit
DE Michael Bennett: Hurry up
– Bentley (four pass rush snapshots), Hightower (seven snapshots) and Wise (eight snapshots) had high pressure rates.
– Bennett played a total of only 11 snapshots. That's less than 14 snapshots at week 5 and 24 snapshots at week 4. Eighteen Patriots defenders played more snapshots than Bennett on Thursday night. All his snapshots passed Giants. It may be time to wonder how long he will stay in New England with a $ 6.5 million cap hit. Could the patriots better use this cap field for an offensive weapon? Or will the time come when the patriots need a troubling pass Rusher like Bennett? They do a good job and pressure without him.
– Van Noy leads the team with 24 pressures in the season.
CB Jonathan Jones: Five Catches, Seven Targets, 95 Yards, TD, Two PBUs
CB Jason McCourty: 2-2, 25 Yards
LB Dont & # 39; a Hightower: 2-3, 23 yards
FS Devin McCourty: 2-2, 10 yards
CB Stephon Gilmore: 1-7, 9 yards, INT, four PBUs
SS Terrence Brooks: 1-2, 7 yards
CB JC Jackson: 0-2
FS Duron Harmon: INT
LB John Simon: INT
LB Jamie Collins: 2-2, -8 yards
– Jones dropped a 64-yard touchdown. He actually put his hand on the ball that happened to fall into the arms of Golden Tate. It was a tough bounce for the usually reliable cornerback and will skew his stats for the rest of the season.
– Gilmore had one of the best games of his patriotic career. It led to this tweet:
– McCourty and Jackson have quiet really good seasons.
CB JC JACKSON
Jackson has covered only 7 yards on two catches and seven goals in the last three games. At this time he has two interceptions. He has dropped only 96 meters in the season and allows a pass rating of 15.8. He could be the only Lockdown Cornerback # 4 in the NFL.
LB JA'WHAUN BENTLEY
Bentley toppled the passerby four times and put pressure on three of these snaps. That's damn good. He forced an incompletion with a QB hit and kept Giants from running back Jon Hilliman with a 3-yard win in a first-and-10 run.
