In the first half, our average starting field position was the 11 yard line. In the second half, it was the 26 yard line.
The Patriots had an average start position of the 33 yard line in the first half, and the 25 yard line in the second half.
We averaged a start position of the 20 yard line in the whole game. The Patriots averaged a start position of the 29 yard line in the whole game.
We started past our own 20 yard line only 3 times. They started past their own 20 yard line 9 times.
We lost the field position battle BADLY, and still dominated the game. That's incredible. But we can't rely on that in the future. 9 times out of 10, if you get beat that badly in the field position battle, you're not going to win the game. We have to improve our special teams, once again. We're letting the opponent start too far down field, and we're letting ourselves get pinned way back.
Field Position: We did great despite poor starting position yesterday. Must improve for Super Bowl.
