2. Stop being so soft on third and long. While the Patriots are fourth best at stopping their opponents on third down at 34.62% , they are really struggling with third and long. For comparison, last year they finished the season at 25.6%.
4. If they have the ball at the end of the half and there’s an opportunity to go down there and score they need to go for it. This could be one of those games where they just run out of time at the end and they could’ve possibly used three points at the half.
6. Winning is easy when you win that turnover battle. The Patriots have been on the wrong side of the turnover battle lately. As the season now stands they are actually dead even with no turnover margin advantage going into this gam. That needs to change.
