    The play calling was good tonight, just as it has been throughout the Belichick era. As Belichick said after the game, they do whatever it takes to win.  We all said before the game, this was a defense to run against and that with the Pats current passing game, running is what they would likely have to do. Fortunately they had enough effective runs to allow them to play that kind of game well tonight. Four interceptions and generally good defensive play helped too. 

    However this doesn't mean tonight's game plan was right for every game, though I'm sure some will reach that conclusion.

    All these stats oriented arguments are the result fantasy GMs counting their numbers.

    In fantasy football things like time of posession, negating a team's pass rush and generally whearing down and imposing your will on the opponent's D line doesn't help people's fantasy teams so they consider them unimportant.
