Cards Defensive Coordinator Ray Horton Thinks He's Figured Out The Patriots
Cardinals defensive coordinator Ray Horton thinks he knows one of the major reasons Arizona upset the Patriots last Sunday, holding off the defending AFC champs 20-18 in New England. It's because Horton said he discovered a tendency by the Patriots offense that allowed the Cardinals defense to know whether New England was about to run or pass.
"We knew that whenever [Aaron] Hernandez was in tight, it was going to be a run, so we had a run check,” Horton told Arizona Sports 620.
"But when he got hurt, it screwed that up because they went to three wide receivers. What they did, and we figured out real quick, was whenever Tom Brady was under the center, they were going to run the ball and whenever he was in the shotgun, they were going to pass the ball. We told our players, ‘Hey, make the run check if Tom Brady's under the center. If he's in the gun, go to the pass check.'
"They handled it beautifully, and so we had dual calls that basically what we were telling them is we know when they're going to run and pass, so our players put us in the best position to win the game and they did a flawless job of managing the game of getting inside New England's head."
