Down 17-3 at halftime to the Miami Dolphins, the New England Patriots seemed in trouble until a second half turnaround catapulted the Patriots to 24 unanswered points and a 27-17 win.
Tom E. Curran joined Michael Felger on Sports Sunday to talk about what made the turnaround possible.
“It’s resilience,” Curran said. “Often this team just has to have some time to figure things out. Defensively, they got a little bit more active and started to come off the edges.”
Despite pulling out the win, the Patriots put themselves in a bad spot early on, and contributing to it was bad play calling according to Curran.
“I just don’t see anything in the middle of the field at all,” Curran said. “They’re lining up in four wides, but you’re seeing two go-routes and you’re seeing stuff that is outside the hash marks and sometimes outside the numbers. They seem like low-percentage throws to me.”
