In this week’s episode, Steven and Chris recap the New England Patriots’ game against the Minnesota Vikings — and are joined by fellow Pats Pulpit writer Brian Phillips. A lot of listeners asked how long it has been since a performance like this by a Patriots defense, and the trio tries to come up with an answer.
Defensive performance: Everyone on defense was flying to the ball, and very few mistakes were made by this unit. Can them put in a similar effort against the Miami Dolphins this Sunday?
Negatives? After a performance like this, can we find anything negative to say about the game? The number of penalties committed by the Patriots is a tad concerning, according to Brian. Can there still be victories with this many penalties against elite teams going forward?
Offensive woes: One of the hosts thinks the offense is still not clicking on all cylinders.
