Thoughts/Opinions about yesterday’s blowout victory!

Very rare to blowout a Bellichek coached team and take advantage of their mistakes, not the other way around. Also, winning the special teams battle.


-Cowboys offense is doing an excellent job in possessing the football with long drives, but they have struggled finishing them with TD’s.

-Play calls in the red zone have been very conservative. Many underneath throws.

-Very smart play call to attack a backup corner when Gonzalez left that resulted in a long touchdown.

-Missed the first drive, but it appeared that Ferguson had a real good day. McKeon will a great hustle play recovering a fumble.

-Have to get Brandin Cooks more involved and take some shots down the field, Edoka starting probably gives them some pause. Also, Turpin needs to get the ball more within the offense in space.

-Vaughn has to at least try to block as he got Dak killed on a sack. He is unplayable in pass protection. Need Dowdle to return, also Pollard just doesn’t look as explosive as last year, is he trying to pace himself?


-Excellent rebound with their run defense. Believe the Patriots averaged less then 3 yards per carry.

-Glad to see other defensive players make an impact, outside of Parsons. Excellent hustle strip sack by Fowler.

-Bland is auditioning for become our outside corner opposite Diggs next yr and is looking the part, 2 excellent interceptions.

-Thought Kearse had a much needed bounced back game and was good in coverage, however, dropped an easy interception.

-Penalties were far better and didn’t extend drives..

-I have seen Bell playing more then Clark the last few weeks, which is interesting as the season progresses.

Special Teams

-Excellent punt and punt coverage that led to a defensive TD.

-Great fake on the extra point

-Audrey continues to be consistent, interesting that they were going to kick a 66 yarder before half.
