Overall Team DVOA

5.3% 13th

The New England Patriots continue to sit in NFL no man's land. The Patriots offense, while still very mich a work in progress, has put together two of their best outings of the season in Weeks 4 & 5. Their defense currently ranks among the top 10 in DVOA, but they have yet to put together consecutive games with negative DVOA. Things won't get much easier for New England, either. Their past schedule through five weeks ranked 28th in DVOA, while their schedule going forward ranks 18th. – Cale Clinton
