First and foremost, what a game.
I had five main keys to the game over at Bleeding Green, and let's review them;
The Center. Ryan Wendell, New England's 3rd Center, played at an excellent level tonight and was instrumental in the success of the run-game. The Patriots ran early and had success with it early on, neutralizing the potent Eagles pass-rush and taking pressure off of Brady's elbow.
The TightEnds. Turns out the Eagles didn't have 2 of their top 3 corners, so we know what happened there... The Patriots abused the Philly secondary all night.
Vince Young. He was doing great early on, but then everything began unraveling.
Andy Reid. Down 10-0, Pats coach Bill Belichick made adjustments. Andy Reid couldn't keep up.
Ryan Wendell is definitely performing above Dan Connolly's level of play at center.
The game looked like the Week 1 MNF game at Miami, except the Eagles were clearly in the driver's seat for the first five minutes of the game.
The secondary needs to stop being injured.
