JONESING SOME SACKS- Chandler Jones delivered 2.5 sacks on Sunday. He now has 5.5 on the season. While the number of sacks is impressive, I think the lack of penalties called against him lately is even more impressive. According to Pro Football Reference, Jones hasn't had a penalty called against him since January. His last roughing the passer penalty came over a year ago when he was flagged for two of them in the opener against Miami.
TOO MANY SHORT POSSESSIONS- Ryan Allen was on pace for a ridiculously low number of punts this season. After being able to take the field only for holding duties during the first half, Ryan was summoned onto the field to kick the ball away 5 times in the second half. Four of his five punts resulted from the Patriots not getting a first down, in other words a quick three an out. While three and outs suck in general, they really suck when you have them on back to back to back possessions. Earlier this season I wrote about how efficient the team was being on third down. Hopefully they get back to that this week against the Jets.
