It’s been a rough start to the month of December for Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Last week they lost 28-22 at the Houston Texans and things aren’t going much better today.
Many thought that perhaps a return to Foxborough might be the medicine the Patriots needed. But the team’s struggles have trickled over from last week, and the fans at Gillette Stadium don’t like it.
At halftime, the Patriots were booed off the field by their own fans. Yes, that’s right.
New England scored a touchdown on its opening drive, only to give up 20 unanswered points before halftime.
Wow. Patriots getting booed off the field in Foxboro.

The Patriots have not lost a home game since October 1, 2017. But trailing 20-7 to the Kansas City Chiefs at the half, their 18-game home winning streak appears to be in jeopardy.
Kansas City have forced Tom Brady into numerous errant throws and an interception. The Chiefs have also shut down the Patriots running game for all but one 19-yard dash by James White.
The last four games have seen the Patriots offense largely exposed, averaging only 18 points per game since November. They’ve gone 2-2 in that span in large part thanks to their defense, which has covered up some of the warts.
Suffice it to say, it’s been a bad start for the Patriots and their fans. And 31 other fanbases couldn’t be happier to see it.
