they have a ball control offense, and those TEs are built for 3d down conversions. At least we dint have to worry about the QB rushing for 60yds and 5 first downs

I think the key is going to be getting brady on the ground. The D needs to be able to get to brady. If they can't then there will be problems.

The problem is getting them to third downs. Brady has been picking up 1st down on 2 downs this playoff so far. Until they get into the red zone they have been playing short ball. I have a feeling that Brady and Bellichek will be avoid 3rd down all together.
