Yesterday against the Indianapolis Colts, the New England Patriots’ defense allowed Dan Orlovsky to complete 30 out of 37 passes and throw for 353 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Colts were able to hit some big plays in the passing game and score 21 unanswered points in the 4th quarter. The defense started a wide receiver playing safety and a corner who was signed just days prior to the game. The defense isn’t a no-name unit, you just have to make sure you keep your roster sheet close by. Ryan Hannable wrote earlier today that the defense is still searching for an identity, one we may not know until the playoffs begin.
