I give Belichick a TON of credit for taking a page from San Fran & Seattle and having his DB's test the patience of the zebras by molesting the WR's time after time beyond 5 yards.
Look, 5 yards is easy to spot.
You're not supposed to be able to push, grab, touch the receiver beyond 5 yards.
The Patriots have been doing a wonderful job of doing it.
Almost as good as what they did 10 years ago to Harrison and the Colts vs Manning. Clutch & Grab baby.
