The only reason Brady was held to 20 points was due to the Carolina O playing well keeping the NE O on the sideline.
The D had nothing to do with keeping NE under 21 points. Only got off the field once on 3rd down the entire game. They punted ONCE all game and pretty much drove the entire field on every possession.
Ron and the D would prob be the first to say they did not have a good showing.
Hell, we let them drive the length of the field with 50 seconds remaining in the game knowing they had to pass the ball.
Not a good night for our D.
