The Patriots are moving in next door! Think of this as your call that the Pats are ready to beat the 1972 Dolphins. BTW, how are this year’s Dolphins doing? Yeah, I hate the Dolphins because they always kicked the crap out of the Pats back in the day.
The best shot I think teams will have to beat the Pats is to mostly play a dime defense with three safeties deep. Dare the Pats to run the ball and give them the throws underneath. The objective of the opposing team’s defense is to slow down Brady and company - no big plays. That gives your offense the ability to run all of your plays against the Pats’ defense that has holes to exploit. No team, other than the Colts, has the firepower to get in a shot out with the Pats.
