FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — 7-9. For many teams in the NFL, a record like 7-9 tends to garner a lackluster response. For the New England Patriots, this was the first losing record for this organization since 2000.
To add insult to injury, the Patriots sat at home while a certain QB went on to win his seventh Super Bowl ring.
It should go without saying that last season should have an asterisk next to it due to COVID-19 and honestly, it was a miracle that any game was able to be played.
The Pats will begin their new season with many question marks like: Will Cam Newton be able to carry the team? Will the first-rounder Mac Jones take snaps? Will this team be able to compete with the Buffalo Bills or even the upstart Miami Dolphins?
See, question marks.
On Wednesday, Patriot fans had at least one question answered as the 2021-2022 schedule leaked early on the internet.
Without a doubt, the biggest game of the year will be when Tom Brady fresh off another Super Bowl win, leads the Tampa Bay Buccaneers into Gillette Stadium on October 3 at 8:20 p.m.
Will Patriots fans show hostility towards the QB that helped make the franchise the best in all of sports or will they show him a love for his achievements?
Yet another question.
