Over the weekend, the New England Patriots suffered their second loss of the season. After falling to the Houston Texans by a final score of 28-22, the Patriots dropped out of the top spot in the AFC.
It was a brutal loss for New England, whose offense looked lost at times. Star quarterback Tom Brady struggled to find open receivers – in part because there were no open receivers.
During the game, Brady was spotted on the sideline barking at his receivers to play better. Following the loss, Brady and company still sit in second in the AFC, just behind the Baltimore Ravens.
However, questions about the team’s offense remain.
One former NFL star and current NFL Network analyst thinks help is on the way for the Patriots.
“I guarantee it, something’s going to happen within the next few weeks,” Sanders said.

Now the question becomes, which wide receiver is Sanders talking about? A prime candidate is former Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown, who was released by the team earlier this season.
Brown met with the NFL in November in regards to allegations of sexual assault against him. Since then, he’s been active on social media, campaigning for the Patriots to sign him.
Stay tuned for the latest.
