    So Uncharacteristic

    The Pats’ fourth drop of the game proved costly. They could have capitalized on prime field position this drive, but Edelman’s drop on 3rd and 12th is forcing them to punt.

    Anything to get an edge, right? Jokes aside, Brady needs to have an epic performance in the 2nd half to make this a game. The last time the Pats trailed by 18+ at the half? November 24, 2013 against the Broncos. It was 24-0. The Patriots won the game.
