WEEK 8 ESSENTIALS: PATRIOTS VS. BROWNS
Before the 2019 NFL season began the talking heads over at ESPN had the Browns ranked as the #10 team. After 6 games they've accumulated 2 wins and an average of 20 points per game. Have they faced a lot of defensive powerhouses? No. Have they suffered significant injuries on the offensive side of the ball? No. Are they going to get a beat down in Foxboro? Yes.
WEEK 7 ESSENTIALS: PATRIOTS VS. JETS
A month ago the Luke Falk led Jets came into Foxboro and left with a 30-14 loss. The Patriots didn't cover the spread and they gave up two touchdowns. With the team now heading into enemy territory without Josh Gordon or Rex Burkhead, should we be worried? No. What about the fact that Sam Darnold is now back under center, should that make us worry? No.
