The New England Patriots’ defense has not been playing up to its full potential. It’s saying something when the team leader in interceptions has just two, and it’s already Week 12.
Oh, and that leader was linebacker Jamie Collins before he was shipped off to the Cleveland Browns.
In this edition of “Between the Tackles,” NESN.com’s Michaela Vernava, Doug Kyed and Zack Cox discuss how the Patriots’ defense can get back on track during its upcoming AFC East matchup with the New York Jets and their turnover machine, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Plus, with Thanksgiving upon us, the BTT crew ponders the real burning questions. Which Patriot can eat the most turkey? And does the Tom Brady family feast include more than just whole grains and avocado ice cream?
Also, New York Post NFL writer Bart Hubbuch joins the conversation, discussing his opinion on Brady’s recent play, the current state of the Jets and possible landing spots for Tony Romo.
