Running back Stevan Ridley was the unsung hero of the offense. He gained only 35 yards on 11 carries, but he had three fantastic chip blocks to give Brady enough time to hit receivers.
On the first touchdown drive, Ridley chipped a linebacker to allow Brady to hit Dobson over the middle for 16 yards on third and 4. Later on that drive, Ridley again chipped a linebacker to let Brady find Thompkins over the middle, and he ran in for the touchdown. And Ridley’s chip on Barron in the third quarter let Brady hit Dobson over the middle for 6 yards on third and 2.
Hopefully this leads to more snaps and carries for Ridley.
