New England Patriots 2019 NFL outlook: Schedule, players to watch & more.
If there’s one thing NFL teams should know at this point, it is you should never count out Tom Brady and Bill Belichick regardless of offseason departures or how the team looks on paper.
The New England Patriots definitely took a blow when it lost Rob Gronkowski to retirement and the team also lost Chris Hogan in free agency to the Carolina Panthers. Those departures mean Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett, and newcomer Matt LaCosse will take on a larger role in the offense.
Michael Bennett returned on the Patriots’ defense to go along with Deatrich Wise Jr. – who enters his third season with the Patriots and first time as a starter.
New England hasn’t been challenged in the AFC East in years and though the departures on offense certainly hurt them, Brady and Belichick always appear to come up with a new scheme to keep the team moving.
Is a seven Super Bowl title on the horizon? Don’t be surprised.
