When Jamal Adams was the nearest defender to the targeted receiver tonight, the Patriots went 6-6 for 157 yards, per NFL Next Gen Stats. One, *maybe* two, of those catches might not have been Adams' responsibility. But the point remains.

Russell Wilson's 38-yard touchdown pass to David Moore had a completion probability of 6.3%, per NFL Next Gen Stats. That's the lowest completion probability on a completed pass this season and the third-lowest in the history of the metric (since 2017).

Patriots inactives: RB James White, QB Jarrett Stidham, OT Korey Cunningham, TE Dalton Keene, CB Myles Bryant, LB Josh Uche. The inclusion of White, who wasn't on the injury report, is a big surprise and due to personal reasons. White is the team's top passing back and reliable in blitz pickup, factoring in as a key player tonight.

The Patriots are elevating DT Nick Thurman (6-4, 305) from the practice squad for Sunday night's game against the Seahawks. Thurman adds depth behind Lawrence Guy and Byron Cowart as a big-bodied d-tackle. He spent last season on the Patriots' practice squad, played in college at Houston, and entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2018 (with the Texans). This will be his first career regular-season game, a credit to his persistence.
