I disagree. It's damn near impossible to outscore Brady in a shootout, especially in the playoffs. You have to run the ball, play good defense, and hope for a little luck. Here are the patriots scores in playoff and Super Bowl losses since Brady came along starting with their most recent loss and going backwards.
34 (vs Peyton)
Of course it would help to score TD's instead of FG's but I think it's going to be more on how our run game and defense play next Sunday.
