The New England Patriots did their job and defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, so Alec and Rich decided to hit the studio a day earlier than normal to create this week’s Pats Pulpit Podcast!
They start off with their analysis of the AFC and which team concerns the Patriots (1:10) and who is the toughest opponent on the Patriots schedule (6:20)?
The Patriots defense played well enough and expectations are crazy high (7:30), but what was the defensive strategy (12:00)? The Patriots offense looked like it was only using a page or two of their play book to not reveal too much (14:00), but the coaching staff made sure to put a lot on tape for future teams to panic about (19:30).
Can the Patriots win games when they have to rely on their wide receivers (21:00)? Should we be concerned about K Stephen Gostkowski (24:30)? What are the Patriots biggest weaknesses (28:00)? Can the Bills win in week 8 (33:00)?
