December 9, 2021

Okay, so none of us thought the Patriots would be in this position back in August, right? Sure, once Mac beat out Cam for the starting job and it was clear he was going to be the guy moving forward, a lot of people believed he’d have what it takes to help lead this team to something better than the 7-9 finish a year ago.

Sunday night’s preseason game against the Giants (6:30 p.m., WBZ) is the final tuneup before beginning preparation for the Miami Dolphins in arguably one of the most anticipated seasons in recent history.

Patriots: Lombardi believes new additions to the receiver group are fitting in nicely

August 23, 2021

On Saturday afternoon, many of the Patriots assistant coaches met with the media while the team had a day off.
