Research Notes

  • Reggie Wayne entered Week 11 as the league leader in targets (105) and receptions (69), and Wayne was targeted 15 times Sunday against the Patriots. New England's defense held Luck to a sub-50.0 completion percentage when targeting Wayne for the first time this season. On the road this season, Luck now has zero touchdowns and six interceptions targeting Wayne.

  • Rob Gronkowski caught all seven targets for 137 yards and two touchdowns. Gronkowski caught his only end-zone target Sunday, his fourth straight game with a touchdown on an end-zone target. Brady is 5-for-7 targeting Gronkowski in the end zone in his last four games after starting the season 2-for-6 on those throws in New England's first six games.

  • In Aqib Talib's first game as a Patriot, the New England defense sent added pressure after Andrew Luck on 15 dropbacks, their highest total in a game this season (previous high was nine). Talib's pick-six came from a five-man pass rush, the first interception the Patriots recorded this season with added pressure. Extra pressure has been common from the Colts' defense this season, who entered Week 11 as the third-most aggressive defense in the league (5+ rushers on 41.6 percent of dropbacks). Indianapolis sent extra rushers after Brady on 12 dropbacks, but Brady handled it much better than Luck.

  • The 59 points allowed by the Colts is the 2nd-most allowed in team history. The most is 62, against the Saints in Week 7 of 2011.

  • This is 2nd time in Patriots history they have had an interception return TD and a punt return TD in the same game. It also happened in Week 17 2002 vs Panthers.
