2018 Season Outlook

The Patriots allowed the fourth most yards last season but allowed the fifth-fewest points. An interesting dynamic they are attempting to build on this season, with some solid offseason acquisitions. They added NT Danny Shelton, DE Adrian Clayborn, and CB Jason McCourty. They will be under the helm of a new DC, Greg Schiano, but the decade-plus of pedigree within the organization should elevate their consistency. They were below league average in interceptions, and fumbles recovered but seventh overall in sacks. If they can stay at the same level as last year in terms of points allowed, while increasing their other numbers, (Interceptions, fumbles, and touchdowns) they have a chance to be a top 10 offense. If you have a chance to reach for them, I don't hate that idea, since they have the second easiest strength of schedule.
