Patriots’ Solid Ground Attack, Team-First Mentality Making Life Difficult for Opponents (Video)


In the latest installment of the Tom Brady-Peyton Manning battle, it was Brady and the Pats who took care of Manning and the Broncos. It marks the ninth time out of the last 13 meetings between the two quarterbacks that Brady has come out victorious.

While Brady had more human-like numbers (23 for 31, 223 yards, one passing TD, one rushing TD) in Sunday's win over Denver, the running combination of Stevan Ridley, Brandon Bolden, Shane Vereen and Danny Woodhead combined for 251 yards on the ground and two touchdowns to help New England to their third win of 2012.

The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe recognized how the total team mantra was key in the 31-21 victory. And NESN's Matt Chatham highlighted how the plethora of talent on both sides of the ball makes planning against the Patriots so difficult.

Check out the video above to hear Howe and Chatham, along with Dale Arnold and Kevin Faulk, break down Sunday's win on NESN Daily.
