20191001_NewsBlitzNike_2500x1406

The Patriots are 4-0 but not without some concerns as the calendar turns to October. The offense is coming off one of the worst performances of the Tom Brady era and is searching for some answers after putting just 9 points on the board in Buffalo.

The offense and its struggles are on the minds of many Patriots fans and ESPN.com looks at how the unit is searching for an identity. The Boston Globe wonders if it’s time for Tom Brady to return to his youth and become a game manager once again. WEEI.com says Brady is looking for more from his fellow offensive veterans.

The Boston Herald offers a report card for Sunday’s win over the Bills. The Athletic provides 32 things we learned from the game. NBC Sports Boston says the Pats won an ugly one.

Jonathan Jones won’t be suspended by the league for his hit on Bills quarterback Josh Allen. Bill Belichick said there wasn’t a whole lot Jones could have done differently.

In Washington, coach Jay Gruden is still unsure on the identity of his starting quarterback for Sunday’s visit from the Patriots according to the Washington Post. Gruden drew some heat for playing rookie Dwayne Haskins against the Giants. Gruden’s job is on the line in Washington, and nothing his team has done in the first month has helped his cause.
