Last Tuesday Charlie Jacobs was named the CEO of Delaware North Boston Holdings which includes the Boston Bruins. During his press conference he expressed his disappointment with the Bruins play so far this season. Here's a current look at the team.
While an ugly win is much better than a pretty loss, Saturday's game took some years off my life for sure. Obviously seeing the Ravens go up 7-0 in less than 3 minutes, was not what I was picturing. I still think that the Patriots would have blown out the Ravens if only we had been first to score. Going down 14-0 gave the Ravens' defense an edge as they have been much more dominant with a lead all season. Of course that edge didn't matter in the long run as the Patriots did what they needed to do to come out on top. Here are my lasting thoughts from the game.
There are many reasons why the Patriots should beat the Ravens today. We all know that the Patriots are pretty unstoppable at home and Tom Brady is an incredible cold weather quarterback. Beyond the fact that the Ravens' run defense is overrated because of the competition they have faced and the fact that the Patriots' offensive line is playing much better than they are getting credit for, there are several other reasons the Patriots should be victorious today.
When it comes to quarterbacks in the 2014 regular season, Tom Brady ranked 3rd in percentage of times he was sacked with 4.1%. While most fans recall that a majority of these sacks occurred early in the season when the Patriots' offensive line was a total mess, many are concerned that the line has begun to sputter again. As a fan, I'm not part of that group. Here is a breakdown of each time Brady was sacked this season.
There are many reason why I believe the Patriots should run the ball against the Ravens. Today my focus is going to be on the fact that the Ravens really aren't that great against the run.
