Re: Patriots Q&A with Kerry Byrne
* Patriots’ running game vs. Texans run D (exploiting mismatches): No team has a higher percentage of rushes against defenses with five or more defensive backs this season than the Patriots (73.5 percent), thanks in some part to the hurry-up approach they employ to create mismatches in the running game. The Texans have allowed 6.0 yards per rush when using such defenses this season, the worst rate in the NFL, but have allowed the second-fewest yards per rush (3.3) with four or fewer defensive backs on field.
* Patriots’ run defense vs. Arian Foster: The Patriots' defense has allowed 1.3 yards per rush after first contact this season, the second-best rate in the NFL behind the 49ers (1.2). Arian Foster has averaged 1.3 yards per rush after contact this season, tied for second-worst among running backs with 80 rushes.
