The Patriots ran 9 offensive plays that quarter. Count' em, 9. They've only run 36 offensive plays in the game through three quarters. This is a far cry from the 93 offensive plays they ran against Atlanta in Super Bowl LI or the 72 they ran against Seattle in Super Bowl XLIX.

This is the 6th time during the Brady/Belichick era that the Patriots have had no more than 10 points through 3 quarters. They're 2-3 in those games (wins in the Tuck Rule Game and last year's SB, losses in Denver in 2005 and 2013 seasons and in SB XLII vs the Giants).
