All three quarterbacks that the Patriots have faced have been able to find success against the Patriots secondary.
They have allowed two passing touchdowns in each of the games, and the lowest yardage total they have been able to hold a quarterback to was 369 against Ryan Fitzpatrick yesterday.
It is clear that there are some serious holes in the secondary.
Devin McCourty, who stood out as a rookie last year, has been getting torched thus far this season. He is facing the toughest receivers that each team has to offer, but he just hasn't been the same lock down quality corner.
The safety position is a problem as well. After releasing James Sanders and Brandon Meriweather in the preseason, they were replaced by a group of career back ups.
The weakness was even more evident with the absence of Patrick Chung yesterday against the Bills.
Belichick is going to need to figure out a coverage scheme that can give his young secondary a better chance to succeed.
If he can't, offenses will continue to have a field day against the Patriots.
