We’re halfway through the NFL season, and one of the main questions New England Patriots fans are asking themselves is: How bad can it be?
Chapters 2-7. They send quarterback Mack Jones there every week (though he clearly isn’t the answer) and often have no better options. Golden Touch head coach Bill Belichick appears to be gone for once as his game plans and results continue to backslide. New England hasn’t struggled like this in over 20 years.
They have a chance to turn it around against the Indianapolis Colts, but these Colts aren’t the pushovers you’d expect. With first-round draft pick Anthony Richardson out for the season with a shoulder injury, they have a bit of a battle to go with Gardner Minshue as their starting QB. Minshew is a gamer, and last week snapped a three-game losing streak against the Carolina Panthers to move the Colts to 4-5 on the season.
The Patriots aren’t as bad as the Panthers, but they’re close. As the NFL’s international slate wraps up with this final game in Frankfort, will the Pats start to dig themselves out of the hole they dug themselves? Or will the Colts punish a much worse team in week two?
