There are no game predictions this time, but we did talk about which Patriots players are worth watching and how this Patriots team is different from those of years past. Of course...

They touch on the injuries suffered by Ross Cockrell, Daryl Williams, and Amini Silatolu and whether or not they think the team has plans in place to replace all of them. And of course, we'd be remiss to not talk about Kelvin Benjamin's comments regarding Cam Newton.
