Felger & Mazz: September 9, 2013
Felger and Massarotti kicked off the week discussing the New England Patriots 23-21 Week 1 win over the Buffalo Bills. What are the positives and negatives that can be taken from yesterday’s win? During yesterday’s win, Patriots running back Shane Vereen broke a bone in his wrist that will keep him out for a few weeks. Also, tight end Zach Sudfeld injured his hamstring in yesterday’s win. With Sudfeld injured, Michael Hoomanawanui is the lone healthy tight end on the Pats roster. How long will it take Tom Brady to get on the same page as his young receiving core? How come Brady didn’t take responsibility for the fumble yesterday? Other than the fumble and the interception, how was Brady’s performance in the win against the Bills?
