The New England Patriots were just plain ugly today. And ugly is the only word that can describe today's game against Carolina. After last week's performance against the Raiders, this week's performance was just unexpected.
Some of the numbers just jump off the page:
100% efficiency in the red zone really caps off everything else. They only got into the red zone once all day. Maybe we're spoiled here in New England. Maybe we expect too much. Maybe we just aren't used to seeing failure on the football field. But this game was unbelievably ugly.
