Simon doesn’t have the
same role as Jamie Collins, Dont’a Hightower, Kyle Van Noy and Chase Winovich,

New England is 8-1 at
this point of the regular season, and the only game Tom Brady lost was the
match against the Baltimore Ravens. According to several NFL analysts, the
Patriots will lose their Week 11 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Well, we can’t really
tell that the Patriots will give up on winning this game, and Brady can’t forget
the Super Bowl loss to the Eagles. This game will be important for both teams,
but the Patriots have a better record.
Playing the Eagles with a healthy roster give the Patriots a better chance to win this game. The defense needs to stay strong, and the offense needs to step up the game. New England has issues with the offense, and Brady still hopes that they will move forward with a stronger defense.
The Eagles are a strong
team, and they will need to try really hard to defeat the GOAT and his amazing
defense. Sunday is a big day for the Patriots nation, and everyone hopes for a
win. Let’s see what happens on Sunday.
