Brady & shotgun tracker, Week 10

By Mike Reiss

Continuing to monitor the trend of Brady and the shotgun snap -- which has been utilized less this season than past years -- let's update the numbers after last Sunday's win over the Bills:

Usage of the shotgun
vs. Bills:
38 of 72 (6 runs, 32 passes)
at Rams: 36 of 69 (4 runs, 32 passes)
vs. Jets: 42 of 80 (6 runs, 36 passes)
at Seahawks: 60 of 87 (7 runs, 52 passes, 1 false start)
vs. Broncos:
45 of 94 (7 runs, 37 passes, 1 false start)
at Bills: 30 of 77 (6 runs, 24 passes)
at Ravens: 41 of 82 (6 runs, 34 passes, 1 fumbled snap)
vs. Cardinals: 47 of 82 (9 runs, 38 passes)
at Titans: 13 of 67 (0 runs, 13 passes)

On the season, when including penalties, the Patriots have been in the shotgun 49.5 percent of the time (352 of 710).
