Keys to Victory

Shut down Josh Gordon: Gordon heads into today’s matchup coming off of back-to-back 200-yard performances. He’s by far the Browns most dangerous weapon and one of the best pass catchers in the NFL. Aqib Talib figures to draw his assignment. Talib’s defensive skills, along with a consistent pass rush should limit Gordon’s effectiveness.

Get the ball to Rob Gronkowski: This speaks for itself. We’ve seen how dominant the Patriots offense is when Gronkowski is the focal point of the attack. No one has shown signs of being able to slow him down and it’s unlikely the Browns will have a solution either.

Get Ridley some touches: Stevan Ridley is active after missing last week’s game because of fumbling issues. Ridley must build his confidence back and it has to start somewhere. He’s by far the Patriots’ best runner and they need him to right the ship before playoff time.

Key Actives: Stevan Ridley

Key Inactives: Kenbrell Thompkins

    I expect the Pats defense to put extra coverage on Gordon so Campbell will be forced to look elsewhere. If he forces the ball to Gordon, the Pats may be able to get some turnovers. Ridley is a must on the field today. They need him going into the final stretch. Gronk may get double and even triple coverage at times so look for Julian Edelman to have a big day with key receptions.
