The running game
Stevan Ridley seemed to establish himself as New England's No. 1 running back during the first two weeks of the season, but the Patriots went away from Ridley against the Ravens, giving him 13 carries to Danny Woodhead's 15 carries. Woodhead had just 34 yards on those 15 carries, an average of 2.3 yards per carry. Ridley wasn't much better at 37 yards (2.8 yards per carry). The team's newly-vaunted running game may be short-lived.
