I know what you’re thinking. “The Patriots season is over, the path to the playoffs has crashed and burned, why bother writing these previews?” The answer is simple.

Can the Patriots Do Better Than Cam Newton in 2021?

The New England Patriots are having a problem that they haven’t been familiar with in nearly 30 years.
