The New England Patriots have inserted Jarrett Stidham into two different games after pulling the game’s starter. In Week 4, Stidham replaced Brian Hoyer and in Week 7, Stidham replaced Cam Newton. Neither situation has been easy for Stidham, and he’s struggled, arguably as much as the starter in both cases.
But it doesn’t sound like it has been a contentious situation for Stidham.
“He’s a fighter and I’ve learned a lot from him this year,” Stidham said of Newton after Sunday’s 33-6 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
