Are the New England Patriots in Trouble? — Sports Survey of the Day
After Thursday night’s victory over the New York Jets, the New England Patriots are off to a 2-0 start, but the wins seem to have been a real struggle for the longtime dominator of the AFC East. Are they in trouble?
In both of the Patriots’ wins so far, they have barely squeaked by opponents that, in the past, they would likely have demolished. On Thursday, the team pulled out a 13-10 win over the Jets, but it was a hard-fought battle all the way through.
Tom Brady doesn’t have a whole lot of options to throw to, especially with Danny Amendola out possibly six weeks and Shane Vereen out until Week 11. It could be a while before they recover the dominant form they’ve shown over the last decade-plus.
