The New England Patriots beat Buffalo, and it wasn’t close. It was a landslide. I’ve learned so much from Donald Trump.
The executive summary of the Patriots’ 2021 season paints an optimistic picture of the franchise: After missing the playoffs in their first season without Tom Brady, the Patriots added several new players, found a quarterback in Mac Jones, and bounced back with a 10-7 record and a spot in the postseason. Jones had by far the best season of all the rookie quarterbacks, and became just the third rookie since 2013 to lead his team to the playoffs. So why does the state of the Patriots feel so glum?
WR Kendrick Bourne Contract: Three years, $15 million 2021 statistics: 18 games, 62 catches, 877 yards, 7 TDs The fifth-year veteran was one of the biggest bargains of the leaguewide free agent class. He was durable, versatile — he rushed for 125 yards and threw a touchdown pass — and his positive energy was infectious. Bourne was unabashed about how much his game grew under Belichick’s tutelage and he is likely to become an even bigger part of Josh McDaniels’s offense over the next two seasons.
