Pros
  • The New England Patriots will be starting backup QB Brian Hoyer in this game, which usually means fewer pass attempts and more rushing.
  • The Patriots are a giant 9.5-point underdog this week, likely leading to an extreme passing game script.
  • The Green Bay Packers pass rush has gotten pressure on opposing QBs 2.52 seconds after the snap (on average), grading out as the 8th-most sluggish in football since the start of last season.
  • The New England Patriots have been faced with a stacked the box on 27.7% of their plays since the start of last season, most in the league. Keeping an extra defender close to the line of scrimmage improves run-stopping at the expense of better passing efficiency.
Cons
  • THE BLITZ projects the New England Patriots as the 7th-least pass-centric team in the NFL (context-neutralized) at the present time with a 58.9% pass rate.
  • THE BLITZ projects the Patriots to run the 2nd-least offensive plays on the slate this week with 62.6 plays, based on their underlying tendencies and game dynamics.
  • The New England Patriots have called the 3rd-least plays in football since the start of last season, totaling just 56.6 plays per game.
  • Opposing offenses have passed for the 9th-least yards in the league (just 220.0 per game) against the Green Bay Packers defense since the start of last season.
  • Opposing offenses have completed passes at the 6th-lowest rate in football against the Green Bay Packers defense since the start of last season (68.2%).
