No sacking Brady

Quick Stat: in the past 4 games - brady has not been sacked by anyone on the opposing teams. I think this stands as one of the best stats going into the playoffs. And a pure confidence builder for brady while rehabing multiple injuries and his knee.
The following players never recorded a sack against the patriots in the month of december.
Will Smith (4th in NFL - 13 sacks)
Julius Peppers (10th in NFL - 10.5 sacks)
Aaron Schobel (11th in the NFL - 10 sacks)
Joey Porter (16th in the NFL - 8 sacks)
Jason Taylor (20th in the NFL - 7 sacks)

Those are good stats against the sacks and its obvious those are some of the reasons the pats have won thier last 3 games. Although I do believe that its a misleading stat. The jests rank near the bottom of the league in sacks but are the #1 defense in the league. They get alot of pressure on the qb. I think that stat is more important than sacks. Constant pressure vs. a couple sacks...Ill take the pressure all day.
