UN­PRE­DICTABLE OF­FENSE

Boston Herald - - GAMEDAY PREVIEW -

The Sony Michel-James White duo has been im­pres­sive for the Pats, amass­ing 411 yards from scrim­mage and five touch­downs over the past two games.

The one is­sue: The play­call­ing has been fairly pre­dictable.

Michel has car­ried the ball on 69 per­cent of his snaps this sea­son. He's rarely used in the pass­ing game. Af­ter some strug­gles against the Lions, the Pa­tri­ots have essen­tially aban­doned the idea of utiliz­ing Michel as a re­ceiver. That should change this week.

The Pa­tri­ots will be able to catch Kan­sas City off-guard if they can throw the ball more when their big per­son­nel groups (Michel, full­back James Develin) are in the game.

Also im­por­tant to note: Kan­sas City has al­lowed a league-worst 5.8 yards per carry on the ground.
