New England Patriots 4 Down Review: Week 9 @ Baltimore Ravens
4th Down: Which offense will show up Sunday night?
The offense for the New England Patriots has been inconsistent all season long. They have tried to get the running game going like they were successful at last year and they have also tried to get the passing game off to a strong start which has been a staple of the offense for years. However, neither has been able to work to the degree that it needs to in order to be successful. The offensive line has been inconsistent which is a huge factor to the struggling offense. Sunday night they went back to what has made them successful in the past, they let Brady throw the ball at will. He targeted Julian Edelman and Mohammed Sanu 25 times and they both caught 10 passes a piece for over 80 yards between the two. Sanu scored his first touchdown of the season and the offenses seemed to be clicking and moved the ball with authority. However, the Ravens offense kept them off the field by holding the ball for 15 more minutes than Brady and company. It was a good sign of things to come for the offense but just couldn’t get the ball with enough time to inch closer to tying the game or taking the lead.
