In this season's first installment of Perillo's Points on Patriots Football Weekly, Paul Perillo focused on the defensive side of the ball.

How will Bill Belichick use Darrelle Revis against the Dolphins?

"We all know Revis is capable of doing just about anything you ask him to do," explained Perillo. "I think they might match him up against Miami with Mike Wallace or Brian Hartline. Both of those guys are vertical receivers, Wallace obviously the bigger deep threat. I think we see Revis completely take him out of this game."

How will the Patriots cover Charles Clay?

"Charles Clay is a very dangerous tight end for Miami," said Perillo. They're going to have to find out who they want to start next to McCourty, and I think they're going to have to have some linebackers help out."

What will the Patriots do with the front seven?

"I think it makes a lot of sense to rely on Vince [Wilfork] at nose tackle and plug in the linebackers behind him," he said. "That means Rob Ninkovich, Chandler Jones probably off the line a little bit at 3-4 outside guys. I think that's the way you attack it."
