Patriots vs. Eagles On 92.9 The Ticket [VIDEO]
For the first time this season the New England Patriots will have to bounce back from a loss and will try to do so against a reeling Philadelphia Eagles team at Gillette Stadium.
Two statistics should provide an amount of confidence for Pats fans as New England has posted a record of 38-4 in regular season home games since 2003. During that time they have also only lost back-to-back games 4 times. Additionally, quarterback Tom Brady is 40-8 in games following a loss in his career.
This will be the 14th meeting between the two teams with New England winning the last 4, including a win over the Eagles in the 2004 Super Bowl.
Tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Julian Edelman have been ruled out on the latest injury report. Linebackers Jamie Collins, Dont'a Hightower and receiver Danny Amendola had limited participation in practice this week and are listed as questionable.
- A win today will give Bill Belichick an 11 win season for the 13th time in his career and tie Don Shula for the most in NFL history.
- The Patriots can clinch the AFC East with a win, and a loss or tie by the New York Jets.
- The Eagles are one of 8 teams that Tom Brady has an undefeated record against.
- Eagles wide receivers coach Bob Bicknell is the son of former University of Maine head coach Jack Bicknell
