New post up on Bleacher Report from yours truly, breaking down how dependent the Patriots are on turnovers.
They’ve been fortunate to continue winning this way in 2012 in what should be called “The Year of the Forced Fumble”. In the last ten seasons no AFC team has topped 18 forced fumbles. The Patriots already have 13. This illustrates that this year’s Patriots are getting their turnovers with physicality more so than the past two years when they were more reliant on interceptions.
Wish we could’ve frozen things right here, but two plays later the 49ers took the lead back for good. Hats off to them for finishing. They didn’t make many plays in the second half but they made enough. Related
