NFL Pro Football 2016 New England Patriots Regular Season Win Odds Preveiws

Share |

The New England Patriots concluded play in the regular season a year ago with a record of 12-4 overall. A painful week 16 loss to the New York Jets and week 17 loss to the Miami Dolphins cost the team home field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. As a result the Patriots had to travel to Denver for the AFC Championship where they were defeated 20-18 as the team failed to convert a two point conversion to force the overtime period. Starting quarterback Tom Brady will be forced to miss the first four games of the regular season as he becomes the fall guy for Deflategate.

Jimmy Garappolo saw limited work in Week 17 last season completing just 1 of 4 passes for six yards. In his rookie campaign in 2014 the Eastern Illinois product completed 19 of 27 passes for 182 yards and a touchdown. The team added tight end Martellus Bennett to the roster in free agency from the Chicago Bears. He caught 53 passes last season and will be insurance if Rob Gronkowski cannot stay healthy. Gronk is a big target for undersize members of the secondary who take shots at his legs. He has missed 16 regular season games the past four seasons. With Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman starting at the wide out position there is some concern for fly patterns deep downfield. When the Patriots were eliminated by the Denver Broncos it exposed the weakness of the New England offensive line. The line coach was immediately fired following the playoff loss. Three of the starters on the line have three years of experience or less. Running back LeGarrette Blount enters his seventh season. In 12 games with the Patriots in 2015 Blount ran for 703 yards for 4.3 yards per carry average and had six touchdowns. Dion Lewis saw his 2015 season cut short after week nine after suffering a torn ACL in the win against Washington. Before going down for the year Lewis averaged 4.8 yards per rushing attempt. He is expected to be ready to play by week one.
