Transcript - will not be 100% accurate

Welcome back to Gillette Stadium everybody my name is Mike Trout enjoined is always like patriots expert analyst for WB EI -- Christopher price. Mission accomplished -- the patriots took care of business 34 when he did beat the bills the worst some anxious moments. But thanks to what you are blocked -- franchise record all purpose yardage total. Not too much and nervous for the final couple minutes. Yet they were McClellan coming close it out what you said there were some nervous moments there there was some crazy moments at the end of the first start the second. As well as a few moments there in the second -- going -- -- -- complete -- not as -- as the -- -- -- a week -- -- -- but I -- When you look at the circumstances of this round if you look at the weather outside it was a rough one. I think that they plea to the conditions that dictator running the ball controlling the clock and got a great performance there in the running game quicker want to. You know I ask you know well check this after the game actually in the press conference that the weather dictate the way the patriots play he said absolutely it did it was a running type of game. But my question do you choruses will lack thanking translate in the playoffs no matter who they play either play Cincinnati. War possibly chiefs -- the chargers being -- -- to -- second round of the divisional playoffs. You're gonna have to get a consistent performance offensively and again no recurrence of whether -- definitely huge factor this. And if the conditions called Enron audit the interview room all of their. We saw tonight the last couple games they've been able to run the ball over consistently talked about what is. Ability to move achieved that we also saw some good performances out of Stephen -- Who is clearly being. Integrated reintegrated back into -- -- so we're we're seeing from. There we're seeing some more from she -- all of that goes into the dolphins that the totality you know when you look at what you need from this office. You're gonna need a solid performance out of the running game I think if there is a school of thought. And you're -- yeah -- that that the patriots are an interview on the old athletic consistently in the post season when every chance please -- Well I think versatility of the run game that you touched on is going to be something that's very important we -- chamber and like he did against Baltimore. The week before tax one of those swing passes out flat for a touchdown Tom Brady. The way Tom Brady is playing. How do you measure because some patriot fans are gonna be concerned about the way Brady has played as a bit particularly accurate on the deep ball and there's gonna be concerned that. Can't Brady and the Patriots offense. Challenged other teams like Cincinnati let's say in that second weekend in January and the challenge to -- I think when you look at it tasted. And I am not talking about the parity of the cities in the bill came -- this -- Christine we didn't pass. Anything did -- which you can get in situations like that there were a lot of five step to the degree wasn't spending a lot of time in the pocket Paula aren't exactly Wednesday. Via the slow in getting the ball out as fast as possible I think we saw that they. With some discreet steps on the short stuff over the middle and actually. -- -- and it was able to do good job again moving the chains. -- we saw it happen he says. -- -- -- 53 so I wouldn't be surprised to see more than going -- again in the context of his game you know remember. The -- the real good against the pass did so when you look at the numbers fourteen for 26 for 170 yards and was. Because they're not overwhelming but Indians -- -- record four point one think you and I think that's ultimately you know the goal that. Clearly Chris the biggest reason the New England Patriots need the pie is the mounting injuries we saw again today. Big scare with Logan Mankins -- -- -- ankle injury. This is one series he's Logan Mankins after all he comes right back and really doesn't miss a beat he was out sprinting ahead blocking. Jane green twenty or 22 yard gain on the screenplay. That's kind of guy Logan Mankins is that he's nicked up Brandon Spikes had an -- and of course in the first quarter we talk about the deep passing game. Aaron Dobson appears to re injure his left foot he hadn't walking through a couple of weeks ago. He left today's game and did not return how concerned are you become vital pieces finally. I think what you're looking at specifically what you want to heal up first and foremost in my mind it's the second because clearly aren't the only problem thanks standard book. According to use the opportunity because the concussions. You wanna get those guys that much time as possible on the shelf. You wanna get you wanna get Whitfield I think in that -- fairly healthy and really aren't practical perspective as. This team needs to stay at home as long as possible this is a different team at -- it is on the road. I know that the other great we have the signature win over the ravens you know a couple of weeks ago this -- -- -- all this team -- from the we can beat anyone. You can -- go on the road might be different story think. Staying at home for as long as possible since this fuel. C I think it's little bit different Chris I think the bye week's important because you have to play. One last game I mean -- like Australia in 2000 intent I -- in 2009. They lost home games here in the playoffs after doing remarkably well. At home so if -- you know pick your poison and -- in and it depends on how you look at the bye week. If you look at the home field advantage I think it's a bigger deal that we often one -- game. Trying to get to the suitable as far as the Patriots defense you'll like the way they're playing. Yeah I do I think that they're you know cracks this time here but quite frankly. I think it was going through that I think there -- no perfect teams and when you look at the twelve teams that going to be the postseason -- here there's no overwhelming favorite that includes pseudo liberty hasn't worked. Think the patriots have struggled at times on the defensive -- always audit and it. But I think being pleased that he would be needed to -- ways they weren't I think go four for sixteen on third and fourth down. The numbers are not well between the numbers and I don't want a lot of those please contact. And I think when you look at the final product. The point today you know it and they've given up your equipment that the effectiveness -- for the middle of the year -- was technically and correction. That the team doesn't always necessarily -- but I think the last two weeks the numbers have gone down in terms of points per game I think that's the direction he's going. Well going into policies in these New England Patriots are twelve and four they have earned her first round -- for a fourth consecutive your first time in NFL history. Since we went to this format that that has been accomplished quite a feather in the caps the New England Patriots but as bill well checks -- after the game. Momentum means nothing at this time of the year one game and you're done if you have an off game and obviously the patriots are well aware that. They will try and get back to the Super Bowl second time in three seasons. We'll begin in the second weekend in January patriots close out the regular season money monsoon like afternoon evening here at Gillette Stadium beating Buffalo Bills. 34 to twenty.
