The New England Patriots are going up vs. the Seattle Seahawks in week 2. This should be a huge game as the Seahawks are much better than the Miami Dolphins who the Patriots faced in week 1. The Patriots have been very busy in the off season. They were trying to fill the holes that were left after the 2019 season, which was quite disappointing. None of the holes were quite as big as the hole left by legendary quarterback Tom Brady.
He walked over to Tampa Bay to try his luck there. The Patriots were then left to fill the massive hole that Brady left behind. In order to do this, they had to think outside the box. As a result, the Patriots signed former NFL MVP Cam Newton to a 1 year deal. And he has made his presence known ever since.
Bill Belichick has been high on Newton since the off season. He talked about his impression of him previously.

“I have learned a lot about Cam,” Belichick explained. “I had never really had any interaction with Cam, and then when we signed him, we had some phone calls and WebEx meetings and stuff like that.
“Being with him every day, he’s an extremely hard-working player,” Belichick continued. “First guy in, last one out type of guy. He really has studied hard and he has spent a lot of extra time trying to learn our offense and our communication and our calls, and nomenclature and so forth. Yeah, I’ve been very impressed with that. He’s done a good job of picking it up. He’s a very skilled athlete and we’re just working through it day-by-day.”
Now, there are some questions surrounding week 2 vs. the Seattle Seahawks. With the wildfires that are ravenging the West Coast, games are being postponed.
Take a look:
For now, the NFL is being smart about not postponing for now. We don’t know what will happen in the future. However, it would be very surprising to see them play if things do not change.
What do you think the NFL will do?
