Denver had 2 weeks or practise to prepare for the game, the Pats had 2 days with the team off site for 2 weeks.

We are seeing what happens when you can not prepare and have key injuries happen...losing your DT is a problem when the other team wants to run.

The offense calls different plays than last year's, but is no more fun to watch.

The defense is just a lot worse than last year in every way
They were pretty fun to watch for the first 3 games, wonder if anything changed since then?

as much as this sucks, half the team is out with covid and they haven't been able to practice in two weeks. so basically, thanks nfl.

Gilmore way off this year. Though that is a pretty tough call---the receiver got lost and was making as much contact as Gilmore was

Based on what we've seen so far, this game could be the beginning of the end of their playoff hopes. 2-3 with a loss to this POS team is no bueno.
Again, teams that have played well so far could be shaky later on thanks to Covid and injuries.

In the end that call irrelevant, which is fortunate.

Time to try something different on offense.
