Game Analysis

Watch Alec and Rich's Pregame Show, or listen to them explain why James White is a future hero (and why he deserves more touches).

Tight end Rob Gronkowski is expected to play, while the injury to guard Josh Kline will impact how often quarterback Tom Brady gets walloped on every play.

The Patriots need their running game to take the pressure of their quarterback, but could Brady be asked to run in more short yardage situations?

Can tight end Asante Cleveland fill James Develin's role in the passing game, especially while wide receiver Brandon LaFell is on thin ice because catching the dang ball is important to Bill Belichick.

Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels will be facing the man who was standing in his own shoes a couple years ago.
