The Patriots are one of the best at using the no-huddle offense at various points throughout the game. They will open a game with it, hold off for a while, or switch to it mid-drive when they have the defensive personnel on the field that they feel they can exploit. Much of today’s AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens will consist of which team can set the pace and dictate what the other team does. The Patriots will likely look to keep the game moving up-tempo to wear out the Ravens defense, while the Ravens will be looking to slow the game down with the running game featuring Ray Rice and keep Tom Brady off the field.
