Five bold predictions for Patriots in week eleven
Kyle Dugger leads the team in tackles
Another guy who has been in and out of the lineup, Dugger is fully healthy ahead of this week’s game after missing the previous matchup. And did the Patriots ever miss him during that one. Jets tight end Tyler Conklin was able to shake free of Dugger’s replacement Joshua Bledsoe for two touchdowns and a team-high six receptions (five of which went for first downs).
New England will need Dugger to help out against the pass and to also step up to stop the run. Mid-season acquisition James Robinson did not play much against New England but had a good game in the win over Buffalo. Expect the Jets to try and run the ball and for Dugger to have a big game.
