A look at the position groupings utilized by the Patriots in their 24-21 win over the Seahawks:
(snaps include a defensive holding penalty, a defensive pass interference penalty, a two-point conversion; snaps do not include final three kneel-downs in which the offense was in a 1 WR/2 TE/1 FB/1 RB package)
ANALYSIS: In all, the Patriots were in three-receiver or four-receiver formations for 60 out of the 72 snaps, which highlighted their plan to spread the field. That set up a tough challenge at the line of scrimmage, where the sometimes-outnumbered offensive line hung in the fight against consistent blitzes from the Seahawks (in-game statisticians recorded that QB Matt Cassel absorbed 10 quarterback hits). The goal-line package (3 TE/1 FB/1 RB) and short-yardage package (1 WR/2 TE/1 FB/1 RB) produced the desired results. The goal-line personnel, which helped produce Sammy Morris touchdown run on fourth down, had Benjamin Watson, Mike Vrabel, Tyson DeVree as the tight ends In a reflection of how the Patriots alter their plan each week, the offense went to a two-back set 12 times this week after calling on it just twice last week.
