Troy Brown checked into Patriots Wednesday Live to discuss his keys to the game against the Colts.
First, the Patriots can't let Reggie Wayne beat them. Makes sense. He's their No. 1 weapon on offense. Bill Belichick's defense has actually been fairly effective all year at taking away its opponents' top option so it'll be interesting to see what they do with Wayne this week.
Second, no turnovers or big plays. That may be asking a lot there, Troy. But the Patriots have been winning the turnover battle most weeks so that's at least within reach.
Finally, finish strong. This has proved difficult for the Patriots so far this season. When given the opportunity to close out games, too often they haven't done it. A field goal on Sunday helped put the Bills away, but the Pats were fortunate that was enough. We'll see how things play out against the Colts.
