What actually will make the difference

This article reminds of blind hogs and mud, but Jeremy Green(!) has actually pointed out something relevant. The one thing that continues to encourage me all week is the physical play of our secondary. I expect the Pats to complete a lot of passes (upwards of 75%), but I expect their wideouts to get popped once they make the catch. I will be interested to see if they are still willing to go over the middle with as much aplomb in the 4th quarter as in first. I expect Welker to take some huge hits on Sunday.
