Monday Observations From Patriots Win, Harris, Defense Step Up

The Patriots leaned heavily on their running game and the defense stepped up with a huge fourth-quarter holding the Ravens to just 25 yards in their final three drives, holding on to a 23-17 win.

The big story of the night was once again Damien Harris who ran for 121 yards on 22 carries. He was questionable to even play in this one, he’s been suffering from a lingering ankle injury and a chest injury he suffered last week against the Jets. But the Patriots set the tone with him right off the bat, as he carried the ball five straight times on the night as the Patriots eventually began to surprisingly assert their will on a strong Ravens defense.
