I didn't think we would hold the Patriots to 17 points. I figured if we held them to the high 20s, low 30s we had a chance, a lot of people on the defense was going to have to step up for that to happen & it didn't.
A lot of people were going to have to step up on offense to score more than 30, that didn't happen either.
But I also didn't see an offense or a defensive plan that led me to believe either could happen.
