Losing two straight games is something that doesn’t happen very often in New England and that’s why things will really spiral out of control if the Pats lose three in a row. To make things even more challenging Bill Belichick’s team will take on the undefeated Miami Dolphins this weekend. Tom Brady will have to play better than he did against the Lions if he hopes to keep the ship afloat. Falling to 1-3 would be a lot of ground to make up and if the Patriots don’t make the playoffs we could see this whole organization disband. To be honest New England still might break up even if they win it all. Everyone knows Tom Brady seriously considered parting ways with Belichick due to the coaching staff preferring Jimmy Garoppolo over him. That insulted Brady and all off-season we’ve heard about the friction between both sides. You have to wonder if that’s played a role in the team’s regression? One other notable problem has definitely been the revolving door at the wide receiver position. The Patriots have signed and released several wide receivers (Eric Decker, Jordan Matthews, and Corey Coleman) and they haven’t been able to build any continuity. How is anyone supposed to master the rhythm and timing of the passing game if they aren’t getting any chance to develop chemistry with Brady? Look it’s easy to see that a lot of New England’s problems are starting to build up to a boiling point. Everything will be fine if they can pull out a win against Miami and you know they’re motivated after going through a rough two weeks. The problem is if things don’t go their way against the Dolphins then the media will come after Belichick and Brady like we haven’t seen in a very long time. There might even be some finger pointing too because we know both Belichick and Brady are on the cusp of airing out their grievances.

New England can’t afford to lose another game or they’re going to be in a lot of trouble.
