New England's safeties Patrick Chung and Stephen Gregory have been banged up for the most part of the 2012 season which has slowed the team down a bit and forced it to give up as many yards as it has.
Chung, who injured his shoulder in the game against Seattle and sat out against the Jets, was expected to turn into a defensive star this season. On top of that, Chung is on a contract year which only heightened expectations.
However, through six games, Chung has only amassed 26 tackles with no sacks and no interceptions.
Should Chung play this week against the Rams Bradford will be able to capitalize on Chung's woes, connect with his receivers downfield and make a run for six while exposing Chung's injuries.
With the Pats still not sure if veteran Stephen Gregory will make the trip to London rookie Tavon Wilson will continue to take his place at the safety position as he's been doing.
Wilson, who intercepted Jake Locker in Week 1, is still raw and has been thrust into a starting role due to Gregory's hip injury.
In seven games, Wilson has 25 tackles and two interceptions but still struggles to cover a large part of the field and catch up to receivers to prevent big gains.
In essence, Bradford has an open field to play with Sunday as the cornerbacks and safeties will be scrambling to cover wideouts. The threat of being picked off is almost nonexistent as New England has had a tough time collecting interceptions.
