Six weeks into the 2019 season and the Patriots’ defense has scored more points than their opponents’ offenses. Because this makes for great water cooler talk and it’ll be easier for everyone if I just keep the tally going for the season in one place, here we go.
Although the consensus around New England is that we don't like Thursday night games, when they happen heading into a long weekend, they are much more palatable. With this short week and sloppy conditions, what are we in for?
First off, the Patriots' defense is fabulous. While the following may convince you that they may occasionally hurt the offense, the fact that they are keeping opponents from scoring at record breaking levels is great and I want that to continue.
