The New England Patriots are in an unfamiliar position: 2-4 and looking way up at the Buffalo Bills at the top of the division.
With the Patriots coming off a second straight loss -- in disastrous fashion against Jimmy Garoppolo -- the general consensus across New England is that the sky is falling heading into the trade deadline next week.
That’s not surprising. It’s what fanbases do.
The Patriots, on the other hand, have a clear message. They need to keep the team united and stick together through this storm.
