Patriots May Look to No-Huddle Offense to Crack Vaunted Pittsburgh Defense The Patriots will have their hands full on Sunday night in Pittsburgh on both sides of the ball.

The Pats' struggles on defense are well-known, but Pittsburgh's defense, one of the best in the game, will also give the New England offense all they can handle on Sunday. In order to overcome that, the Patriots may have to try some different things, like using the no-huddle and spreading the field.

"That's when the offense has had the most success this year," The Boston Globe's Shalise Manza Young said of the New England no-huddle offense. "Look at what they did against San Diego. They finally started to move the ball when they went to no-huddle … They can keep the defense on their heels, getting those guys tired.

"Whether it's no-huddle or not, you've got to spread them out," said ESPN.com's Mike Reiss. "Maybe go three, four wide receivers. We've seen the two tight ends on the field quite a bit this season, but I think this is a game where we need to see more of Julian Edelman getting him involved in the attack."
