Defence - on the opening drive the Pats were allowed to score too easily, but for the remaining 57 minutes New England didn't score a touchdown. That says a lot about how well they played as a unit. Sure there were a couple of times when they came close to letting up a TD again, but there aren't many times in recent years when New England have been held to a mere 13 points at Foxboro.
Running game - both Ivory and Powell were solid, and the run blocking was much improved from the Bucs game. However, the number of times we ran from shotgun was frustrating, while I felt we didn't run the ball enough in spite of the success our two backs were having. There were two drives in the second quarter - both three and outs - which were glaring examples of this as Geno dropped back to pass on five occasions, while the only run was with Bohanon.
Geno in the fourth quarter - the interception he threw when we were in field goal range proved critical.
Pass blocking - gave up four sacks, while Geno was pressured too often at other times.
Wide receivers - we had some big completions, but there were some glaring drops, while Hill's fumble provided the Pats an easy score (fortunately it only led to a field goal).
Robert Malone - the Jets may have been on top for a long while in terms of time of possession, but the Pats controlled the field position battle for long periods, largely because Malone's short punts helped allow them to start drives close to midfield.
The offensive playcalling was inconsistent at times too, as explained above.
