that it’s been more advantageous to bring more rushers over the last few weeks), the fact that there’s more confidence in the secondary and their coverage skills, or they are trying out some different looks when it comes to creating pressure, but New England has appeared to increase its’ blitzing frequency over the last few games.
Pro Football Focus says the Patriots have blitzed more often over the last three games -- 32.7 percent of the passing plays against Indy (second-most on the season), 27.5 percent against the Jets and 25 percent of the time against the Dolphins. That’s the first time this year they have blitzed on more than 25 percent of the passing plays over three straight games, per PFF.
