This New England Patriots team is not the same that many thought could run through the NFL schedule with a 16-0 record. With quarterback Tom Brady down a couple of targets – including the reliable yardage machine that is Julian Edelman – the Patriots have flaws that teams are able to expose.
The latest team to do this was the Cam Newton-led Carolina Panthers who were able to take down the Patriots on a 48-yard Graham Gano field goal that was kicked as time expired. The Patriots big worry is their defense, and especially their passing defense, as they have given up over 300 yards passing in every game they have played so far.
It is great for the neutral though, as you can see by watching this video.
