Week 6: 49ers 33 - Patriots 6
The Patriots got BLOWED OUT by Jimmy G and the 49ers - and maybe - just maybe.....maybe they just stink.
Week 5: Broncos 18 – Patriots 12
In a shocking turn of events, 12 points was not enough to win an NFL football game. I thought the Broncos stunk, but today it was the Patriots offense that didn't have much. Sure, they've been hit hard with Covid and injury - but I still expected more. But didn't get it.
Week 4: Chiefs 26 - Patriots 10
Just didn't have it this week....Or I should say HIM this week. Because the Pats were in this game. Nobody gave them a chance and they were IN THIS GAME! Shame that Cam got sick and couldn't play because I think with Cam things would have been a little (very) different. But, we'll never know.
At the very least - we can be happy with how the defense played tonight.
We're on to Denver.
Week 3: Patriots 36 - Raiders 20
Back in the win column! Today the Pats gave the Raiders their first loss of the season in a dominant running performance and a great day by Rex Burkhead. LFG!
Week 2: Seahawks 35 – Patriots 30
Week 2 came down to the final play of the game. The Patriots were in position to win it, but it just didn't work out this week. A lot of good stuff to build on, and plenty to improve upon. I haven't felt this good after a loss in quite some time. Just too bad they couldn't have pulled that off.
Week 1: Patriots 21 - Dolphins 11
The Cam Newton era of the New England Patriots is finally here, and they start off this new season with a 21-11 victory at home against the Miami Dolphins in front of an empty Gillette Stadium.
