The New England Patriots came into the season with all new receivers and a lot of doubters.  I was one that expected Brady and the Hoodie to overcome those odds and put together another great season.  I hope this game is the exception. - Step 1 - The Patriots receivers are terrible.  I know Edelman had some catches but, overall this group is bad. - Step 2 - Danny Amendola is made of glass.  I said he wouldn't last 16 games I feel even better about that prediction now.   I don't want to see the guy get hurt, but his inability to stay healthy is shocking. - Step 3 - Zac Sudfeld.  Where to start.  The 6'-7" TE was supposed to step into Gronk's shoes and have a breakout game.  He had one target.  How in the world can you have one target as the top TE in a Patriots offense?
