3rd Quarter Notes
Patriots winning 28-14

Devin McCourty is a hero.
Danny Woodhead is a hero.
Wes Welker is a hero.
The offense was firing after its first punt in the game.
Tom Brady has still been pretty flawless.
Patriots have been stopping the run again.
The defense was forcing Manning to check down, which is exactly what it should be doing.
Dwight Freeney ate Matt Light's lunch and stole Brady's lunch money.
After that, the offensive line has been extremely good.
Alge Crumpler has been a blocking all star.
Patriots still unable to finish their pressure on Manning.
Patriots still struggling with 3rd down defense.
