The Patriots get too cute when they daring the other team to run the football

The Patriots get too cute when they daring the other team to run the football

Can a bad defensive unit get even worse? The Patriots found out the last two weeks. In the Patriots’ complex defense, there are a lot of moving parts. Man defense. Zone defense. Zone with man underneath. 3-4 defense. 4-3 defense. Cover zero pressures. I haven’t even scratched the surface of the defensive playbook. While the secondary and linebackers see players play multiple roles, the defensive line roles stay relatively constant. Danny Shelton and Malcom Brown play almost exclusively defensive tackle.

Is La'el Collins still the future at right tackle for the Cowboys' offensive line?

Is La'el Collins still the future at right tackle for the Cowboys' offensive line?

Kevin Sherrington, sports columnist for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered your questions about the Cowboys, Rangers, Mavericks and local college sports in a live chat Thursday. Here are some highlights.Q: Will the Cowboys' injury-filled O-line be able to hold up vs ATL this time around?Sherrington: Well, Adrian Clayborn isn't there, and Tyron Smith is. That's a significant difference. Smith hasn't played up to his normal level this season, but he's healthy. If Cooper continues on his same path, that will make a difference, too. A big key for Dak's development will be his...
