Week 21: at Philadelphia Eagles

All TE vs PHI

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Patriots at this point are a known commodity at this point with Tom Brady. The Patriots boast a highly effective offense that can beat you in so many ways. The Patriots can beat you with their running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends. This causes the Patriots to be extremely dangerous as there is no way to stop them it is only to contain them. Whether it is Dion Lewis or James White out of the background, Danny Amendola or Brandin Cooks as wide receivers or Rob Gronkowski at the tight end position. The Patriots have given Tom Brady so many options that everything is set up in their passing game. The one weakness the Patriots have is that their offensive line is banged up. Laadrian Waddle has really struggled at right tackle and Nate Solder has struggled at left tackle which could cause the Patriots issues if the Eagles are able to get pressure. The Eagles secondary is one that has improved throughout the season and a big part of that has been Jalen Mills. Mills who is a second-round draft pick struggled early on this season but has really picked his game up to go alongside Ronald Darby on the outside and Patrick Robinson out of the slot. The Patriots are going to have to try to find mismatches in this Eagles secondary and Eagles match up very well against the Patriots as Patrick Robinson is the best cornerback on the Eagles and he will be matched up against Danny Amendola who has largely been the best receiver in the playoffs this season. The Patriots may try to expose the Eagles is through the running backs as the Eagles have struggled against receiving tight ends as they allowed 6 receptions for 41 yards per game on the season which was league average in terms of points allowed to running backs on the season. The one area that the Eagles should struggle with the most in this game is with Rob Gronkowski as the Eagles have struggled against elite tight ends. Travis Kelce and Evan Engram who are the two best tight ends that the Eagles have faced both went for 80+ yards this season so if there is one weakness this is likely the weakness that the Patriots will have to take advantage of.

Patriots | Free agency decisions ahead for New England (Mon Feb 5, 01:55 PM) - The New England Patriots face the prospect of losing several key free agents. The Patriots have to address key impending free agents in OTs Nate Solder, Cameron Fleming and LaAdrian Waddle, along with RB Rex Burkhead, WR Danny Amendola, CB Malcolm Butler, WR/ST Matthew Slater and RB Dion Lewis. New England is projected to have approximately $17 million in salary cap space. TE Dwayne Allen, TE Martellus Bennett, DT Alan Branch, LB David Harris and RB Mike Gillislee all could be released to create more cap space.

Our View: Solder is their franchise left tackle, and there's not a lot of talent at the position in this free agent class. There is speculation that Solder will end up retiring.
