Research Notes

  • NEXT LEVEL: Ryan Tannehill completed 8-of-16 passes when the Patriots sent extra pressure Sunday, and the Patriots intercepted a pass with such pressure for their fourth consecutive game. Since Aqib Talib joined the Patriots in Week 11, they have sent five or more pass rushers on 35.1 percent of dropbacks after sending such pressure on 15.0 percent of dropbacks in their first nine games.
