However, just as we were getting it figured out, what happened? What happened that we weren't able to overcome?
We lost both Newton & Graham for multiple games. & for some reason we stepped up Brandon Brooks' snaps around the same time.
With Newton & Graham back in the line up, we are looking like that team they thought was the best in the league. Newton came back against Minnesota & our running game has gotten better & better ever since.
We're going to kick New England's a55, because of Derek Newton.
