Target inexperienced corners when given the chance
The Patriots' defense isn't as good as they'd like to be due, mainly to the injuries they've mourned, many of them being in their secondary. According to the Patriots' injury report cornerback Johnathan Jones, Christian Gonzales, Jack Jones, and Shaun Wade are either out or limited in practice.
So there's speculation that the possible number one cornerback that will probably guard Diggs most of the game will be newly acquired former Patriot J.C. Jackson. Other corners will be practice squad players guarding NFL starters.
So if there's ever a one-on-one situation with either corner guarding Diggs or Gabe Davis, Allen shouldn't be afraid to take a chance with either one.
