Bedard’s Breakdown I: Titans’ defensive approach was final proof the Patriots’ offense just didn’t have enough talent

(Adam Richins for BSJ)

There's been a saying among some people in the NFL that there's no better report card on your team than the way Bill Belichick plays your team.

He's the ultimate mirror. He'll target your weaknesses. He'll make sure your strengths don't beat him.

When it comes to the Patriots, you can add Mike Vrabel (and defensive coordinator Dean Pees) to the list next to Belichick. The Titans put on a defensive clinic against the Patriots and Tennessee's approach basically said: you've got nothing on offense, good luck driving the field against us multiple times.
