... Counting offensive linemen where they lined up here. So if they were at tight end, that's where they were counted. Same goes for lining up at fullback. ... This is a high number for the Patriots 32 of their 78 snaps were with two or fewer receivers on the field, probably a result of making protecting Tom Brady a top priority. ... Julian Edelman and Isaiah Stanback, when they aren't on the field together, are splitting snaps based on formation. When Edelman comes in and is in the game together with Wes Welker, there's usually a back or tight end on the perimeter so both can play the slots. In more conventional three receiver sets, Stanback came in to play at the "X" position.
