As we all know, roster turnover happens each and every week in the NFL. But there is only so much that can change in 35 day stretch. That’s good news for Patriots fans, who saw their team light up Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson to the tune of four interceptions, while their rookie quarterback Mac Jones cruised to his very first NFL win.
