Small tweaks have helped Pats' defense to dominate in 2019

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The dominance of the Patriots' defense was at the center of each of their eight consecutive victories to open the season.

Its knack for forcing turnovers, limiting opponents' rushing yards and ability to force three-and-outs helped it demoralize opposing offenses on a weekly basis.

It did show some vulnerability during New England's lone loss of the season to the Ravens in Week 9. But the Patriots (8-1) still boast one of the NFL's best defensive units as they prepare for the second half of the season.
