Just in case you are new to this segment, it is something that we post once a week here to look at the other side of the coin. Here are some reasons on why the Patriots can beat us this weekend:
Gronk-andez: Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez
These two tight ends are big and they know how to get open and Tom Brady loves to throw to them. We never have been good at covering tight ends and this will be a matchup problem for Donald Butler and Takeo Spikes in the middle of our defense. These tight ends make plays.
He threw for over 500 yards on Monday! Donovan McNabb threw for 30-something yards against us on Sunday. Our defense deserves some credit for slowing the Minnesota passing game down, but stopping an aging McNabb will not compare to stopping the best in the game, Tom Brady.
Home Field Advantage
The Patriots are 9-0 in Gillette Stadium on home openers. Any road game is difficult and dealing with the “lubed up” fans of New England will be especially tough.
As much as I hate the guy, Belicheat sure knows how to make a gameplan. If the game comes down to Norval vs. Bill: Advantage Bill.
It will be tough to run the ball against the Patriots big defensive lineman. They have some big ‘ol boys on that d-line and they love to stuff the run. We will have to find ways to get Ryan Mathews and Mike Tolbert the ball with short passes like we did against Minnesota.
Tomorrow, I will list out the reasons on why we will pull out the victory in their house!
