2014 New England Patriots – Tickets and Preview
The New England Patriots are still working, still out there, still looking to add another Super Bowl ring to the finger of Tom Brady. A 12-4 season in 2013 culminated in another playoff loss. Looking ahead to the 2014 NFL season it’s easy to see that the Patriots aren’t that far away from getting the job done. An adjustment here, a tweak there, and New England could easily find itself in another Super Bowl.
While everyone else looks to Tom Brady, Bill Bellichick made another crafty move and this time it was on defense as the Patriots signed Darrelle Revis in the offseason. Revis gives New England a shutdown corner to throw into the mix of a young and improving defense.
As for Brady, well, he may be slowing down but he’s still very effective and he knows his time in the sun is running out. The Patriots will depend on Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen to provide the bulk of the run support in 2014. Vereen will also be involved in the passing attack coming out of the backfield.
Who will be on the receiving end of Brady’s passes? It would be a big help if Ron Gronkowski can remain healthy for a full season, but that is still a big question mark. Julian Edelman sizes up as Brady’s main target this season, while Danny Amendola provides a dependable safety outlet. Keep an eye on Kenbrell Thompkins, who showed some good things in 2013 and Brandon LaFell.
The 2014 New England Patriots schedule is tough but manageable. A home matchup with the Denver Broncos highlights the biggest competition in the AFC, while the Green Bay Packers in a road game provide the biggest NFC challenge. The Patriots will aslo meet up with the Dolphins, Jets and Bills of course, with the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, and Indianapolis Colts mixed in to spice things up. This could be the season New England Patriots tickets take you all the way to the Super Bowl.Eric Drouant
