Pats make teams pay

Posted by Chris Brown on December 29, 2013 – 2:10 pm

Bills head coach Doug Marrone is more than aware of how effective the Patriots are when it comes to making opponents pay for their turnovers. In his weekly radio appearance on WGR Sportsradio 550, he pointed to New England’s ability to score points off turnovers and their record when they are unable to force at least one in a game.

“Going into this game the thing I preached to our team all week was you can’t let this team force a turnover on us. When you look at what New England has been able to do from a forced turnover factor it’s really unbelievable how they’ve been able to play and how they’ve been able to win.

“If New England doesn’t force a turnover, they’re 11-and-17. That’s about the only losing record that they have in any category that you can look at.”

New England stands third in the league in points off takeaways with 88 so far this season. The league average is 57.
