BSJ Daily Briefing 10.11.19: Pats keeps cruising, Bruins finally drop one

(Adam Richins/Boston Sports Journal)

Good morning!

  • It was a lot closer for awhile more than anyone expected, but the Pats' defense managed to help put the Giants away on Thursday night in a 35-14 win. Michael Bennett was strangely absent for a lot of that performance and Greg digs deeper to figure out what's the cause for his diminished playing time.
  • At this point it feels like the Pats' defense and special teams has scored more than some offenses around the league.
  • Ten days off now for New England before they face the Jets on Monday night. Good timing for the long layoff with so many injuries out of last night's game.
  • The Bruins finally dropped one on their west coast swing but managed to start the year with a 3-1 trip against some tough competition. They come home looking for some answers on a struggling second line.
  • The Al Horford situation continues to get more intriguing in the aftermath.
