TakeawaOne of the biggest stories of the 2023 NFL season so far is the New England Patriots and what a mess they are.
Bill Belichick’s team is as bad and looks as lost as it has have. The Tom Brady days seem like a million years ago.

This is coming off of a 38-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys In Week 4. So, Belichick’s squad has been beaten by a total of 72-3 in the past two weeks and are 1-4. The Patriots have allowed 69 unanswered points.
The Patriots will go into Week 6 at 1-4, having allowed 69 unanswered points, and having gone 10 straight quarters without a touchdown.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) October 8, 2023
