The Patriots run the ball to close out games they are leading in. They also always take a knee to run the clock out.
This was true in 2007, this is true now, it's how Belichick plays.
The stats shown are meaningless to that. Brady was NOT trying to run up his touchdown total, until the very last game of the season. And anyone saying otherwise is flat out lying.
