Since Patriots head coach Bill Belichick inserted Julian Edelman into New England's depleted secondary, the Patriots defense has allowed just 23 points over two games. That's good news for Patriot fans, who had to be a little concerned about their team's chances earlier this season watching their porous defense. Now, it's also good news for skiers and riders.
The improvement comes just in time for Waterville Valley's "Play Hard Pat's Tuesday," when lift tickets will cost the amount of the Patriots' opponent's score. For instance, the Patriots allowed 20 points to the Eagles in yesterday's 38-20 win, so tickets tomorrow at Waterville will be just $20. Too bad the New Hampshire resort wasn't open last Tuesday when the Patriots allowed just 3 points to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Then again, here come the 0-11 Colts. Indianapolis is 30th in the league in scoring, with just 13.6 points per game.
