(Note: The Patriots had 67 official snaps. Ten penalties were included to account for the total of 77 snaps.)
ANALYSIS: This was about as straight-up as it gets, the Patriots sticking with the three-receiver, no-huddle offense for all but one play. That's why Moss, Galloway and Edelman had such high playtime totals. ... Elsewhere, tight ends Watson and Baker rotated series until the final two drives, when Watson took over. ... At running back, there was a similar rotation, although it was notable that Laurence Maroney played just three snaps in the second half.
