Patriots Week

Watching the Pats carve up the Ravens' defense is disturbing for a couple of reasons.

1. Buffalo hasn't gotten consistent pressure on the QB this year. Weeden was sacked but more often than not he had time to sit in the pocket and look downfield. Mercifully, the Browns didn't have an all-pro WR corps to take advantage of that lack of pressure. New England has typically stymied Buffalo's pass rush, sometimes comically so--Brady having 5+ seconds to survey the field hasn't been exactly rare.

2. Buffalo's secondary has been suspect, to put it kindly. Gilmore has been abused almost as thoroughly as McKelvin in his starting days. I'll give McGimpy credit for making it through 3 games without landing on IR but he doesn't seem to be as effective as he once was. Williams had a pair of spectacular pass break ups but both of them were on under thrown passes, passes that Brady probably puts out in front of the WR instead of behind. Consider also that the Browns aren't exactly stocked with elite receiving talent. Either Welker or Gronk would be tough for Buffalo to handle, and the Pats have both...along with some other guys who have been lighting up the Ravens.

Combined, those two factors make it hard to see Buffalo's defense doing much to slow down the Pats' offense. The Bills will have to somehow match TD for TD--without Spiller and possibly without Jackson.

What would you do in Gailey's place to try to win this game?
