The Patriots Run Shows No Signs of Ending
The Patriots will attempt to become only the second team in NFL history to make it to four straight Super Bowls this season. The challenge for the team is complacency and health.
The loss at this moment of Rob Gronkowski places more pressure on Tom Brady and Julian Edelman. The Patriots as a team need to play at a high level and stay healthy this season.
The Patriots are hoping Benjamin Watson will help soften the blow of not having Gronkowski when he returns from suspension after Week 4. The team, as usual, should have no challengers to their dominance in the AFC East. The soft division gives them the ease of knowing they should only need to win two games in January to make it to Miami in February.
Although this kind of talk is not something, you will ever hear from the Patriots themselves. Bill Belichick always prepares his team for the challenge of the current year.
Belichick knows that the Buffalo Bills, New York Jets, and Miami Dolphins all have top first-round quarterback s in their second year on their rosters. The Bills and Jets invested this offseason heavily in an attempt to improve their teams to challenge for the playoffs.
The Patriots first-round pick N’Keal Harry will bring added explosion to the offense not seen since the days of Randy Moss. The team is still multi-faceted on offense and defense and can dial-up winning game plans against any opponent.
Their project win total is 11, and they should exceed this number and win the AFC East.
