Patriots | Running game has been key

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady credits the team's running game for their ability to be an explosive offense this season. With the threat of a solid run game, Brady has been able to exploit defenses through the air with playaction. "I think for the most part when you playaction pass, you better be able to run the ball," Brady said when asked about the variables that go into a successful play-fake. "That's the most important thing. The threat of handing off the ball ... if we run the ball for 150 yards a game, it's hard for teams not to think about stopping our run game. That's what makes us an effective offense. If you hand it off and gain two yards, the playaction pass isn't going to be very good."
