Their front seven, with Jadeveon Clowney and JJ Watt leading the charge, is one of the best in the National Football League and will be a big task for the Patriots' offensive line to keep them in check.

After last week's much needed win on the road, the Patriots will be coming back to Foxborough looking to get their first home win of the season. "That's all that matters", he said.

As sports and politics collided this weekend, seventeen New England Patriots players chose to kneel during the National Anthem at Gillette Stadium prior to the game versus the Houston Texans. "We're athletes, we'll be able to handle it".

Brady added: "I believe that love is the greatest thing we have". He has been very injury prone over the years, so every time he goes down Patriots' fans get scared.

But against Houston, Cooks also lit up the stat sheet with with five receptions for 131 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winning touchdown and the subsequent two-point conversion that put the Patriots up three.

But Cooks said that haste may make waste. It was a display of what is truly possible when we all work together. They move to 2-1 on the season and will host the Carolina Panthers at 1 p.m. next Sunday. The one constant for the Patriots during this remarkable run, besides Belichick, is quarterback Tom Brady, who is already destined to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer when the time comes.
