Patriots Progress Report 2017 – Second Quarter

The second month of the NFL season has been awfully kind to the New England Patriots.

The Pats had some struggles in the first few games of the season, managing just a 2-2 record to go with an inconsistent offense and a defense that bordered on the abysmal. These last four games, however, have been a success – particularly when it comes to that most important statistic: wins.

Patriots Progress Report – First Quarter

If this first quarter of the season is any indication, 2017 is going to be one hell of an up-and-down roller coaster ride for fans of the New England Patriots.

Considering that there were serious conversations about New England’s chances of running the table before the season started, it’s tough not be disappointed with a 2-2 start. Yes, there have been a number of injury issues that have contributed to these early struggles, but still – sitting at .500 after four games is not where anyone expected this team to be.

That’s not to say that the season’s first month has been all bad. There have been plenty of things to be excited about. And hey – up and down, round and round, it’s still the Patriots.

And now, the Progress Report.

That’s a lot of wins.

The Patriots closed out things out by going 4-0 in the season’s final quarter. They easily handled their business and wound up finishing the regular season with seven wins in a row. That perfect final month gave them yet another division title and a first-round bye for the playoffs.

Patriots Progress Report 2016 First Quarter

This is a tough one.

On the one hand, if someone told you at the start of the season that the Patriots would make their way through the Tom Brady-less first quarter of the year with three wins in four games, you'd probably have been thrilled. It's an incredibly positive result.

And yet that success is tempered significantly by the 16-0 shutout shellacking they took at the hands of the Buffalo Bills. It obviously doesn't negate the success of the first three weeks, but it definitely lends a shading of perspective to the situation.

Patriots Progress Report 2015 Fourth Quarter


Once again, we reach the end of the NFL's regular season. After a brilliant first half, the New England Patriots struggled over the final eight. They finished at 12-4 their 2-2 record for the month included losses in their last two games against the Jets and the Dolphins.
It's safe to say that the Patriots as they stand currently are a different team than the one that was inspiring talk of another perfect regular season. On offense in particular, the team has struggled. Despite their losing streak, New England still landed a first-round bye, though they did cede the overall top seed to Denver.
It's playoff time, so the counter is reset to zero. However, if they keep playing the way they have over the past month, New England's time might be short.
