Washington vs. Patriots NFL Preseason Openers Betting Game Analysis

Bill Belichick had a heaping helping of humble pie in 2020.  To show, Tom Brady won a Super Bowl at Tampa in his first season away from the Hoodie.  Meanwhile, Belichick’s Patriots were no longer at their Super Bowl best form.  Cam Newton proved to be no solution as quarterback.  This added to the pain of Brady winning it all.  But to Belichick’s credit, he aggressively moved ahead.  Alabama quarterback Mac Jones was New England’s first-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.  Jones will be given every opportunity to win the job in preseason.

Fitzpatrick’s Next Stop
