In boxing, a great fighter is known for his killer instinct. He knows when his opponent is on the ropes, and what it takes to finish them.Tom Brady and the New England offense lack the hammer to drive the nail in the coffin of their opponents, so to speak.They dusted off the old game plan for the Jets, using Danny Woodhead as the lead back so they could go to the no huddle at the start of the game. Tom Brady went early and often to his young tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hermandez. Early on, it was evident that Brandon Lloyd wasn't on his game, and that the 2012 offense strongly resembled its 2011 counterpart.Josh McDaniels chose to spread the Jets out and look for mismatches.The run game took a backseat to the short passing game, slip and bubble screens were the order of the day.
