Today the New England Patriots attempt to get back in the win column when they play the Las Vegas Raiders on the road. Last week’s game against the New Orleans Saints felt like a “must win” game for the Patriots, but they were humiliated 34-0. How does a team rebound from getting dominated in a must-win game? How will having former friend Jakobi Meyers on the opposing sideline affect the outcome of today’s game. Can Malik Cunningham bring some excitement for New England fans? Will the Patriots be able to talk about what happened in Vegas?
All of that and more in today’s edition of Patriots Daily…

Tweet of the Day
Today’s PFN Tweet of the Day comes from WBZ’s Joe Giza, who reminds folks of the rules in a certain city if things don’t go the New England Patriots way today…
Since whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, if the Patriots have a rough day no one will know and we’ll never talk about it this week
