The New England Patriots might have lost in Week 17 and won’t have a 1st round bye, but there are some positive takeaways from the game.
Week 17 was terrible for New England Patriots fans. The team played their worst game of the season and now lost a 1st round bye.
The Patriots will be playing on wildcard weekend for the first time this decade. Not exactly the way that you want to end the 2010s.
We saw Tom Brady look like an average quarterback, the defense gave up points to a mediocre offense, and the Patriots offense couldn’t get anything going. The Patriots looked like a shell of themselves.
Still, there were some positives. Not all of the plays were horrible. Some guys even had career games.
So instead of focusing on the negatives, we will look at the positives. Here are the 3 positive takeaways from the Patriots Week 17 loss.
