HOUSTON — The Patriots have always relied on the versatility of their players to make life difficult for opponents.

“The more things you can do…” may not be the most uttered line in the Patriots’ locker room during the Bill Belichick era, but it’s pretty close.

However, most of that versatility has been illustrated on defense and the offensive line, where players have been forced to switch roles due to injuries and matchups.

This season, it looks like they’re taking the versatility factor to another level on offense.
