While much of the Boston sports world is reveling in another Red Sox World Series title this Monday morning, there is much to ponder in Patriot Nation as well.

Off the field, there is also plenty of league-wide speculation regarding what could be an exciting, active trade market heading into Tuesday evening’s NFL trade deadline.

The Herald notes that Sony Michel and Marcus Cannon were ruled out for Monday night’s game after not making the trip to Buffalo with the team. The Herald declares that New England must drop its recent turnover habit against the Bills. The Herald writes that Brady thrives even without a full arsenal of weapons. After sitting out last week, the Herald says Rob Gronkowski is “good” for the Bills game. Even without a possible trade, the Patriots are the favorite as usual according to the Herald.

The Providence Journal writes that despite the Bills record and ugly start to the season, New England remains wary of its latest opponent. The ProJo has Josh Gordon crediting his teammates with helping him get up to speed in the Patriots offense. The ProJo looks at the bumpy road that rookie cornerback J.C. Jackson took to New England.
