I'm reserving my opinion on that one because the last game showed that the passing game is still very much a work in progress.

Well, in theory. I would say the Ravens actually have the better WR/TE corps. But McDaniels, on a good day, is much better at calling plays and scheming guys open.

For the game in general - I don't completely rule-out BB having a great game plan and limiting the KC offense (they struggled against LAC two weeks ago), but I have had this game marked down as a loss for a while.

Ok so the backfield went from crowded to mobbed this week. Sony, JJ, Rex were an even split and now we have White and Harris back. This will either be frustrating or fun to watch.

I don't remember who said it but it was something like: "If you have too many running backs then you don't have a running back...." I know we are the #1 running attack in the season but I give most of that credit to the Oline. If the Chiefs stuff the line of scrimmage I hope these guys can find ways to generate yards, we have quantity but not really quality. I am glad to see James White back though. He might be a very important piece in the passing game that we have not had, he always comes through when we need him.

the 1978 team set the single-season team rushing record, which stood until last year,  without a single guy cracking 800 yards. I don't think this is the problem you think it is.

Lets hope so, at least they have guys rested all game long.

Don't see much running as we'll be behind.

 

I don't share optimism here, and I think we'll get crushed.

3-0 in predictions, I'm going with...

 

KC - 36

NE - 21

wouldn't surprise me. I don't trust this defense.

Hopefully N’Keal Harry gets his first touchdown this year. Really pulling for him to have a breakout game. 
 

The key to this game will be time of possession. That’s the only way I can see the Patriots having a shot at winning this. If KC loads up against the run, hit them with short passes.

Gilmore usually goes on Watkins when we play. Hill will have to be doubled probably....Jason and Devin? Kelce usually got the Hightower smash treatment then passed off to Chung, but this time will be Williams and Dugger (they should do a good job actually), CEH will be a huge issue I think....

Who takes him? Maybe Dugger will have to be assigned to him, or Phillips? 

It's a god-damned minefield, defending this outfit

My fear is getting down early big and being forced to go into a heavy passing offense. That’s a recipe for disaster

I think the Patriots win if the game lasts under 3 hours.

Can anyone find a link to a site which shows game lengths (hours and minutes)? I recall the opener was super short this year.

I found it - team game finder on PFR.

 

The week 1 game was the fifth shortest Patriots game since records began in 1999. Shortest was a win over Jacksonville in 2009 at 2:31. Longest was the showdown with Dallas in 2007 at 3:31.

With depth in the backfield and the lackluster WR/TE group you have to think we'll see more and more multiple RB sets. There's already an argument that both Rex and White should be on the field in obvious passing situations.
