Rams' Jared Goff gets advanced lesson in National Football League defense against Patriots

The Patriots (10-2) have won seven of their last eight as they prepare for a tough stretch against three teams with winning records over their final four regular-season games.

"Any time you lose a guy like Danny who's another big piece of this team, it's bad", receiver Julian Edelman said. The Dolphins (7-5) were looking to win eight straight games for the first time since 1985 but dampened their playoff hopes instead.

New England's defense isn't as shaky as some would like you to believe, either. "It was a good win against a good football team".

According to Pro Football Reference's records of the franchise that go back as far as 1940, the last time the Rams gained fewer than 97 total yards was on December 14th, 1969 when they lost 28-0 to the Detroit Lions. Brady has 201 wins, breaking the tie he created with Peyton Manning just last week and doing it on the day they welcomed 38 players back from the '01 team at halftime.

Brady and the Patriots will look for win No. 202 next week when they take on the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football at home.

Blount recorded 18 carries for 88 yards and a touchdown in the game. One turnover came on a pass that tipped off tight end Lance Kendricks' hands, the other after a Patriot defender hit Goff's arm while he was attempting to pass.

Head coach Jeff Fisher is under public scrutiny for his inability to field a winning team after years of high draft picks and for the recently revealed contract extension he signed with the team.

About the only guy that truly excelled was the field-goal kicker, Stephen Gostkowski, who booted four field goals (including a 48-yarder and two from 45) to help the Patriots build their lead when touchdowns were lacking. The Rams feature the league's lowest-scoring offense at 15.5 points per game and appear ill-equipped to keep up with New England's high-powered offense, especially with rookie Jared Goff making his third career start. "You can't worry about past year", he said.

Blount was placed on injured reserve last December with a hip injury, but said he isn't thinking about that even with a bruising running style that makes him more vulnerable to hits. "It's proven results. You don't really know what to expect going in".

"Sometimes you have droughts and lulls, and there's a lot of things that you need: good breaks", said defensive end Chris Long, a former Ram.

"We always preach that we have to start fast", he said after the game. "You've just got to worry about what you can control".

Goff has at least one big fan in New England: Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who this week went to almost absurd lengths to praise the Rams (4-7) in general and Goff in specific. "He's a great role model to learn after and it's an honor to get to play with a guy like him".

The Patriots were bidding to hold an opponent below 100 yards for the fourth time in team history.
