    W-L7-17-1
    PPG diff+2.0+12.5
    TO diff-7+15
    * Regular season

  • The Patriots outgained the Cardinals by 142 yards on Sunday.The last time the Patriots lost a regular-season game in which they outgained an opponent by that much was week 10 in 1989, when they lost to the Saints, 28-24.They had won their previous 45 regular-season games when outgaining an opponent by that much.

  • NEXT-LEVEL: Cardinals quarterback Kevin Kolb did not try to stretch to the field against the Patriots as 13 of 15 completions and 22 of 27 pass attempts traveled 10 or fewer yards downfield. Those short passes have been Kolb's calling card as he was 5-6 with a touchdown in the Week 1 win over the Seahawks.

  • NEXT-LEVEL: The Patriots lost tight end Aaron Hernandez to an ankle injury in the first quarter Sunday against the Cardinals. The Patriots used two tight ends on just 20 of 77 offensive plays, averaging 3.0 yards per play with two tight ends on the field. The Patriots used two or more tight ends on all 66 plays in Week 1 against the Titans, averaging 5.9 yards per play. Since the start of the 2011 season, the Patriots lead the NFL with 80.1 percent of their offensive plays (926 of 1149) involving at least two tight ends.

  • Tom Brady overthrew Brandon Lloyd and an open Rob Gronkowski on deep passes into end zone in the second quarter. Since the start of 2011, Tom Brady has overthrown 12 of his 19 attempts at least 30 yards downfield (63.2 percent, highest in NFL) including both misses today.
