In Response to Defensive performance a bit overrated
the defense hung in their and battled, but in the end they have got to do a better job than this. losing had just as much to do with them as it did with the offense. new york giants offensive drives 10 plays, 6:00, 35 yards, 3 first downs, punt 9 plays, 5:28, 78 yards, 4 first downs, touchdown 8 plays, 3:48, 39 yards, 2 first downs punt 7 plays, 4:21, 2 first downs, 22 yards halftime 10 plays, 4:37, 45 yards, 3 first downs, FG 9 plays, 5:01, 33 yards, 3 first downs, FG 10 plays, 4:53, 3 first downs, 49 yards, punt 9 plays, 2:49, 88 yards, 4 first downs, TD i'm not absolving anyone else of blame (offense/coaching), but even after the brady pick, the defense didn't do the O a lot of favors. ninkovich jumps offsides, and allows the giants to change field position (eventually punting from midfield, instead of the 10). after the safety, the pats only had 8 possessions. that's a poor job by the defense.

do we have the Pats numbers?
In order toi judge the efficiency of the Offenses and Defenenes against season game stats. maybe we should be adjusting based upon # of possseions?
in the end
Our O couldn't stay on teh field and the D couldn't get us off
the Odidn't seem to be great - but then again Gronk at 50%
