Wild Week 1 for Pats


The past couple of weeks the New England Patriots GM Jordan Belfort and the Tennessee Titans GM have been in discussions regarding the availability of Carson Wentz.

Vontaze Burfict LB
TJ Ward S
Robert Griffin 3 QB

The Pats wound up losing the game to the Cardinals 21-12, simply to lack of execution and a weak right leg of their kicker Josh Brown (who was immediately cut after the matchup for missing 35 yard FG due to lack of leg strength).  The Pats won every aspect of the game, turnovers, yards gained, time of possession but at the end of the day, just couldn’t
