Here’s how the Patriots employed their offensive personnel on their 63 offensive snaps, and the Ravens put their guys out there on their 59 snaps (excluding three kneeldowns) …

PATRIOTS

“11” personnel (1 RB/1 TE): 42 of 63 snaps (18 1st half/24 2nd half)
“20” personnel (2 RB/0 TE): 11 of 63 snaps (3/8)
“12” personnel (1 RB/2 TE): 6 of 63 snaps (6/0)
“21” personnel (2 RB/1 TE): 2 of 63 snaps (2/0)
“22” personnel (2 RB/2 TE): 1 of 63 snaps (1/0)
“23” personnel (2 RB/3 TE): 1 of 63 snaps (1/0)

RAVENS

“21” personnel (2 RB/1 TE): 21 of 59 snaps (13/8)
“22” personnel (2 RB/2 TE): 16 of 59 snaps (6/10)
“11” personnel (1 RB/1 TE): 9 of 59 snaps (3/6)
“12” personnel (1 RB/2 TE): 8 of 59 snaps (5/3)
“23” personnel (2 RB/3 TE): 5 of 59 snaps (4/1)

BREAKDOWN: If it seems like the Patriots varied personnel groupings less, well, it’s the truth. A large part of that was that the offense spent most of the second half in the no-huddle, which meant staying with personnel sets for entire series. On the other side, the Ravens emphasis on the running game, and their ability to stay in manageable down-and-distance situations allowed the team to stay in bigger sets. Overall, Baltimore did a bang-up job moving the chains through the running game, and protecting an injured Joe Flacco by keeping the ball on the ground.
