If you can run on the Patriots, you might be able to knock them off.  And guess what?  The Eagles have a secret weapon that should help them.  It's so secret, however, that I haven't seen or heard it discussed anywhere before.  Even they might not realize it.  But I'm bringing it to light in this article.  And so far, when teams use it in the first half, they gain 6.6 yards per carry and record a 60% success rate on the Patriots defense.  Those Patriots' defensive metrics rank #32 and #32.  The secret?

You've heard it.  I've heard it.  For 3 weeks now.   “The secret to beating Tom Brady is a strong pass rush that can get pressure with 4 and play solid coverage behind.”  They've been saying it since 2011.  And yet everyone universally believes that Bill Belichick is a genius.  So if he's such a genius, don't you think he figured out a counter to that weakness?  I think so.  And I lay out exactly what Belichick has done to his roster the last 1-2 seasons to make it perfectly suited to defeat this pass rush of the Eagles.
