Ron Borges and Greg Bedard join "Sports Sunday" to discuss the amount of times Brady threw the ball and ask why they didn't run the ball more.
The Herald's Borges says the Pats have "morphed into the old Colts" of Peyton Manning's early days there that could outscore opponents but had a suspect defense.
"What are the games they've lost?" Borges asked about the current Patriots. "The more he Tom Brady has thrown."
"The more you ask of him, the more pressure's on him, the more likely he's going to make a throw he regrets or he gets hit," Borges said of Brady.
The Globe's Bedard agrees that there was too much reliance on the pass on Sunday.
"You're up 23-10 most of the game an Brady's throwing 58 times?" Bedard asked. "To me, there's something wrong with that. Where's the running game?"

HOUSTON - Justin Verlander remained perfect with Houston, pitching seven shutout innings when the team needed him most, and Jose Altuve homered and drove in three runs as the Astros extended the AL Championship Series to a decisive Game 7 with a 7-1 win over the New York Yankees on Friday night.
Acquired in an Aug. 31 trade, Verlander has won all nine outings with the Astros. And with his new club facing elimination in Game 6 against the Yankees, he delivered again.
After striking out 13 in a complete-game victory in Game 2, Verlander threw another gem. The right-hander scattered five hits and struck out eight to improve to 9-0 with 67 strikeouts since being traded from Detroit. George Springer helped him out of a jam in the seventh, leaping to make a catch at the center-field wall and rob Todd Frazier of extra bases with two on and Houston up 3-0.
Game 7 is Saturday night in Houston, with the winner advancing to the World Series against the NL champion Los Angeles Dodgers.
