Extra Points

Pats’ audible

Bill Belichick’s press conference has been moved to 4 p.m. ET, following the media’s access to the locker room. We’ll plan on passing along our next update after that.

Here is one nugget picked up from yesterday’s game: The team had three missed tackles in the first half, in which it opened a 17-0 lead. In the second half, the Patriots had nine missed tackles.

Of those nine missed tackles in the second half, seven came on three crucial plays:

* Jerricho Cotchery’s 71-yard touchdown (Chad Scott/Eugene Wilson miss)

* Laveranues Coles’ 46-yard touchdown (Eugene Wilson/Mike Vrabel/Ellis Hobbs miss)


* Coles’ third-and-six conversion that set up a field goal in the fourth quarter (Eugene Wilson/Asante Samuel miss)

Missed tackles are somewhat arbitrary. In this case, a play was recorded as a missed tackle only if the defensive player wasn’t being blocked by a Jets player.
