Bill Belichick finds himself in a spot that he hasn’t been in the past 20 years. Remarkably, Bill hasn’t started a season 0-2 since 2001! That is an insane run and highlights how great Tom Brady was for such a long time. Everyone has heard the stat that only a small percentage of teams that start 0-2 make the playoffs. The numbers since 1990 are 31 out of 270 teams (just over 11%) that have made the playoffs. That’s scary statistical territory for the Patriots. That number drops all the way down to only six teams since the NFL merger (1979) that have made the playoffs after starting 0-3. The Patriots need to win this game to feel like this isn’t already a wasted year. 

The Patriots new offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien always felt like a familiar face, rather than an aggressive hire. The only NFL success on his resume came as Tom Brady’s QB coach. That’s like growing up in America, going to a foreign speaking country, taking an English class, and getting an A. The Patriots offense looks like it knows they’re supposed to play fast, but they don’t know how to play fast. It’s as if a toddler is being screamed at to run but can only muster a few quick steps before falling to their knees. The Patriots lead the league in no-huddle rate and rank third in situational neutral pass rate. Despite all the play volume, they’ve only scored 20 and 17 points. They played two close games against good teams (Eagles & Dolphins) but that’s largely because Belichick can get the most out of his defense. As of now, it seems like the Patriots have changed offensive philosophies and are going to run an up-tempo, pass leaning offense. However, they are 0-2, and this matchup favors trying to run, so it wouldn’t be shocking to see them be the same old “adaptable” Patriots and come out running. Expect a balanced attack, that tries to establish the run more than the first two games but also plays with more tempo than we’ve seen in previous years from the Patriots.
