NFL: New England Patriots at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

It’s rare that a New England Patriots loss leaves fans with a positive feeling, but losing a close game to the Seattle Seahawks where Julian Edelman, N’Keal Harry, Damiere Byrd, and Cam Newton all had career days should have Patriots fans hopeful about the future. One week after a run-heavy offense gashed the Miami Dolphins, Newton and the passing attack showed an ability to attack a well-coached secondary- and if the offense can win by ground or by air, opposing teams will struggle to defend the Patriots.

On the other side of the ball, the Patriots have to just tip their caps at the Seahawks receivers who scored three of their five touchdowns on preposterous plays. Nine times out of ten those plays wouldn’t have resulted in touchdowns, and yet all three happened in the same game. That’s just bad luck, and the defense should get back on track.
