New England Patriots Game Tickets
The Patriots play in Gillette Stadium, located in Foxboro, Massachusetts. The stadium is located twenty miles away from both Boston and Providence, Rhode Island. There is a seating capacity of over 68,000 fans.
There is no surprise that the Patriots are as good as what their offensive leader and quarterback Tom Brady does. However, this year might prove to be a challenge as some of his favorite targets have changed. First and foremost, Aaron Hernandez left the team abruptly and is sitting in jail on murder charges. Replacing one tight end might not have been a big deal, but this happened after Brady’s other favorite Rob Gronkoski had back surgery and is out of commission through the preseason. Other players will have to step up to the plate and make catches in order for the offense to be successful, or at least until Gronkoski can return healthy.
The other big news is that Wes Welker, a Brady favorite, also left the team under bad terms and went to Denver. Also following out the door were running backs Jeff Demps and Danny Woodhead and Brandon Lloyd, another wide receiver. Guard Brian Waters and safety Patrick Chung also departed the team.
To make up for the losses, there were some big pickups to the Patriots. Tim Tebow signed as backup quarterback. They signed receivers Donald Jones, Michael Jenkins and Danny Amendola. Tackles Armond Armstead and Tommy Kelly also joined the team. With the strong arm of Brady, the offense should be able to pick up where it left off, despite all of the changes on the offensive side of the ball.
The Patriots had a solid draft in 2013, even though they didn’t get a first round pick because they traded it away. What they did end up with in the second round was Jamie Collins, an offensive linebacker from Southern Miss and Aaron Dobson, a wide receiver out of Marshall. Both players come in to the team with high regard as to what they will bring to the team. In the third round, they chose cornerback Logan Ryan and Duron Harmon in the safety spot, both of which are from Rutgers. For the fourth round, they took a wide receiver from TCU, Josh Boyce.
