New England Patriots 2010 Match-up Analysis
Let's look at the 2010 NFL schedule for the New England Patriots.
The Pats are facing strong pass D this year and weak run D. But, what's their running game going to look like?
I created a tool to automatically analyze the strength of opponents and color-code based on favorable (green) or scary (red) match-ups. Every week of the regular season, these will be updated, so it will be great to see how these colors change.
This shot shows that the Pats will have 7 favorable running match ups and only 3 favorable passing defense. In general, throughout the year, they face pretty stiff passing defense. Of course, this is a team with Brady, Moss, Welker and more.
To contrast the Pats, the Chargers have 8 favorable match-ups. It doesn't look like their star receiver (Vince Jackson) will be back, but they still have plenty of options.
