Today is a great day for Patriots fans, we finally get to watch our team play some football under the lights on this beautiful Thursday evening. It may be just pre-season but I am dying to see some Patriots football and I am sure you are as well. Putting that aside, we are now officially one month away from the first regular season game. September 11th at 8:30 the new England Patriots will take on the Arizona Cardinals for the first Sunday night game of the season. Jimmy Garrapolo will be starting this game and all of Pats Nation is anxious waiting to see what this guy can do. This will be Jimmy’s first time up against the Cardinals as well as his first pro football start ever.
This match-up will not be easy facing the NFC West Champions on the road on a Sunday night without Brady. However if our receiving core can stay healthy I believe we will take it in a close game. We have two of the biggest and best Tight Ends in the game and we have been seeing their skill set together at training camp. With Amendola, Edelman, and Hogan all being pristine route runners and some of the quickest we should be able to keep the ball in the air and capitalize on many opportunities.
Football is almost here Patriots fans. Pre-season is among us tonight, and sooner or later we will be sitting on our couch on Sundays eating pizza in our Brady jerseys and yelling at our TV.
