The Patriots have been okay defensively. The pass rush hasn't exactly been there, and they've been giving up a lot of short throws. However, they're limiting big plays, and winning at the line of scrimmage in the running game.
On offense, it's been a different story. Tom Brady has been erratic, and hasn't been able to consistently find any receivers besides Rob Gronkowski or Julian Edelman. He does have a touchdown pass to Gronkowski, but poor clock management at the end of the first half cost the Patriots four points.
