2011 Preview:
Offense:
Obviously, everything the Patriots do on offense is based on and off of Tom Brady, but they won’t hesitate to give a heavy dose of their power running game. They have an underrated run-blocking line and added another slashing runner in second-round pick Shane Vereen and a pure power runner in third-rounder Stevan Ridley. New England ran it on 46% of their offensive snaps last year, the eighth-highest percentage in the NFL. It’s all set up by Brady and their spread passing game. They went underneath more after the departure of Randy Moss, using Wes Welker and their stable of tight ends on short and intermediate routes. With Brady under center, they’re one of the few teams capable of consistently sustaining long drives, and the addition of WR Chad Ochocinco gives him another reliable target. NFL spreads.

Defense:
Their overall run defense is strong, but the Patriots biggest offseason question mark was finding a consistent pass rush. They traded for massive DL Albert Haynesworth to man the left side of the 3-4 front, and also grabbed three veteran DEs that have all had their share of career sacks — Shaun Ellis (72.5), Andre Carter (66) and Mark Anderson (25.5). Aside from star CB Devin McCourty, their secondary is weak (30th in NFL in pass defense), but the linebacking corps is improving with the NFL’s leading tackler ILB Jerod Mayo leading the unit.

StatFox Take: The Patriots have a rather easy start to the season before their Week 7 bye, with only one 2010 playoff team looming (Jets) in those first six games. After the bye, they play three of the best teams in the NFL on the road during a five-week stretch (Steelers, Jets and Eagles), but conclude the season with four games against teams with a combined 21-43 (.328) record from last year. The Patriots have averaged more than 12 wins per season since 2005, and should be able to retain this rate with at least a dozen victories in 2011. NFL lines.
Prediction: OVER 11.5 wins (-105).
