Film Review: Pats Defense

This film review will be of the Pats defense, courtesy of Greg Cosell

-“Edelman again was the slot corner in the sub-packages”

This is a matchup I really would like the Giants to exploit. Edelman covering Cruz? C’mon, that’s just too easy.

-“Anderson and Wilfork immediately stood out in the run game.”

Wilfork will be a problem for the Giants, both in run and pass pro. He’s a game changer, and the Giants will have trouble running.

-“3-2-6 was Belichick’s predominant sub-package in the 1st half; Fletcher and Mayo were the LB, Ihedigbo and Edelman were the inside slot players.”

The Pats are going to go dime a lot to counteract the Giants passing attack. Short passing game could be open. Focus on Beckum and Ballard?

-“Smith 42 yds off play action boot was rare 1st + 10 pass by Ravens, Chung coverage breakdown due to run action”

More interested in the second part, which is Patrick Chung biting on the play fake. Giants have been doing the play action boot a lot lately. Look for that more.

-“Anderson quick edge pressure versus LT McKinnie may have saved a 2nd quarter TD, Smith ran by S Chung on deep in and go route and was wide open – Anderson forced Flacco to step up, NT Love drove RG Yanda into Flacco and Flacco could not step into the throw.”

 Anderson is one to watch, because he is a good pass rusher. Between either Love or Wilfork getting a push up the middle, Anderson could have a good game.
