Still picking up the pieces from the New England Patriots third consecutive loss, and fifth in six games. Things will not get any easier for them as they get ready to play a couple of tough division rivals in the coming weeks. People are starting to call for Bill Belichick’s job, but he will be coaching in 2024 for somebody.
Also, some positive injury news for the Bills’ Damien Harris and Dolphins’ Jalen Ramsey; a classy way for Falcons’ Calais Campbell to celebrate 100 NFL sacks; and some NFL teams already thinking about Caleb Williams.
All of that and more in today’s edition of Patriots Daily…

Fun Fact of the Day
The New England Patriots are currently projected to have the fifth pick in the 2024 NFL draft. The last time the patriots had a top-five pick was when they selected USC’s Willie McGinest fourth overall in 1994. The only NFL franchise with a longer streak of not selecting in the top five is the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pittsburgh last had a top-five selection in 1970 when they selected Terry Bradshaw from Louisiana Tech first overall.
