1. Patriots will remain undefeated at home

New England is a tough team to face no matter where you face it, but the Patriots are even more dominant when they play in front of their home fans at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough.

Coming into the game on Sunday evening against Dallas, New England holds a perfect home record of 4-0 so far this season and are one of two teams left in the NFL that hold an undefeated record at home, with the other team being the Minnesota Vikings, who are 5-0 at home going into Week 12.

While the Patriots have played just four games at home this season compared to six games on the road so far in the 2019 campaign, New England’s statistics at home are rather impressive up to this point and could be something that points to another reason why it will come out victorious over Dallas this weekend.

In four home games, the Patriots are averaging 31.3 points per game, while allowing opponents to average just 11 points per game.

On offense at Gillette Stadium, New England is averaging 321.5 passing yards per game through the air while averaging 90 rushing yards on the ground to average a total of 411.5 yards offensively. On the road, the Patriots are averaging just under 350 yards per game in total offense in six contests.

Defensively at home, New England has allowed opponents to throw for an average of 182.3 yards through the air while averaging just 69.8 yards on the ground to average a total of 252 yards in four games. The Patriots have also allowed just two touchdowns to opposing teams throughout that span.
