The New England Patriots will try to do their best and win the game against the Miami Dolphins. NFL fans expect a big performance from the team. Of course, winning a game won’t be that easy, and the whole thing depends on veteran quarterback Cam Newton and the way he identifies with his Chance Man.
So, who is the chance man?
Cam Newton identifies his real Chance Man
It’s the term Newton came up with to describe N’Keal Harry. The media asked him about the Patriots wideout during his videoconference.
The Patriots’ passing game has made headlines this offseason. Newton was hit with a big dose of criticism. However, critics also trashed the receiving unit, including wideout Harry. Experts criticized the 2019 first-round pick for his low performance. He did much worse than the players who were selected after him. This applies to DK Metcalf from the Seattle Seahawks and AJ Brown from the Tennessee Titans.
In the past two games, we have seen some bright moments from the talented receiver. He was more physical and ready to elevate his game. Harry measures at 6 feet 4 and weighs about 230 pounds.
In one of these games, Harry had his second touchdown of the season two weeks ago in the 45-0 win against the Los Angeles Chargers. The following game was better. Harry had a few more catches and nearly drew a big defensive pass interference call.
Harry finished with 49 receiving yards and led the team in this category. It was in the game against the Los Angeles Rams. But, we were definitely excited to see Harry elevate his game. New England did lose the game against the Rams.
When asked about Harry’s development, Newton acknowledged his improvement and called him a “Chance Man.”
Harry is the wideout coaches would use, trusting him to come down with a pass.
Patriots offense may take more shots downfield. Some say Newton is not able to convert on these throws. But, stats don’t support this pessimism.
Newton ranks No.2 in the league on deep-ball accuracy with a completion rate of 57.9%. He ranks 33rd in deep-ball pass attempts with 19.
