BSJ Daily Briefing 08.10.18: Tale of two halves for Pats in preseason opener

Adam Richins/Boston Sports Journal

Good morning!

  • Plenty to unpack after the Pats got in their first preseason affair of the 2018 season this morning. Chris and Greg had wall-to-wall coverage from down at Gillette which should give you everything you need to know about the uneven performance that ended on a high note.
  • Greg also took you inside the Tom Brady contract situation, as the Pats reworked his deal a bit on Thursday.
  • Some fun history in Toronto as Mookie Betts came up big with a dinger in the ninth to lock in the cycle.
  • Celtics full schedule is out this afternoon, so get your calendars ready.
