 through four weeks When NFL scouts and coaches prepare for an upcoming opponent Adam Butler Jersey , they not only look for strengths and weaknesses but also for tendencies and hints at particular play calls. The more predictable a team therefore reacts in certain situations, the easier it is to scout and to game plan against. Enter the New England Patriots, who are always modifying their battle plans to stay one step ahead of the opposition.This approach has played a huge role in the success the team has enjoyed over the past two decades, and it is something that continues to be at the center of its preparatory philosophy and process. Staying unpredictable is one key aspect in that regard: the team likes to mix and match its offensive and defensive play calls and personnel packages to gain an advantage however small it might be.A recent example of that is the Patriots’ red zone offense – one of the most balanced units in the NFL. Through its first four games, New England ran a combined 34 plays inside the opponent’s 20-yard line. The plays that coordinator Josh McDaniels called in the red area are almost evenly split: the Patriots ran 18 passes and 16 runs. The resulting 47.1:52.9 run-pass-ratio ranks the team second in the league in terms of balance.Only the Los Angeles Rams – who ran exactly 27 passes and 27 runs – have divided plays more evenly than New England. This balance has served the Patriots well over the first quarter of the season as the team came away with points on every one of its 12 red zone trips so far this year: New England scored eight touchdowns – seven passes and one run – as well as four field goals. The team’s 5.67 points per red zone trip are eighth best in the NFL.There is still room for improvement, though, particularly between the 20s: the Patriots’ 34 plays in the red area rank the team just 17th league-wide. Inside the red zone, however Authentic Elandon Roberts Jersey , the early signs have been encouraging for a team that will get Julian Edelman back soon and also have Rob Gronkowski and Josh Gordon as potent red area weapons.NFL & NFLPA checking into whether Patrick Chung played with a concussion All right, who said a few weeks ago that we’re due for a Patriots scandal? I know somebody did. SHOW YOURSELF!Jokes aside, because nobody wants to see their favorite players get clocked in the head like we did before we knew better, this report from Pro Football Talk could easily explained with a couple questions, or it could be...well, if you’ve been following the Patriots for more than a couple seasons now, you know what it could turn into.Basically, Patrick Chung came out of the Jags game in the second quarter right after a big hit with tight end Niles Paul , who was lead-blocking on the play, then Chung came back in after only missing one play (eventually giving up a TD to Austin Sefarian-Jenkins), and then Pat didn’t return after halftime. The Patriots announced Chung was out with a concussion, and that’s where this gets dicey:From the PFT Report:For reference purposes, here’s how the concussion protocol is *supposed* to work. Gotta emphasize “supposed to” here, because in practice...well, if you ever had a friend who went to college at a “dry” campus, you know what I mean.From SB Nation’s breakdown of the policy (emphasis theirs):Seems straightforward enough. It also seems like there’s enough room in that process where both outcomes are equally possible; if protocol was followed Youth Lawrence Guy Jersey , it’s certainly possible that Chung passed the exam, but came out later anyway after they kept an eye on him, and it’s also possible that (gulp) they put him back in knowing he got his bell rung.Meanwhile, Bill Belichick reiterated that he wasn’t in charge of medical decisions.We’ll keep you posted if anything else comes up with this story. Hopefully, we’re on to Detroit.
