The GIST: After Monday’s scare against the still winless NY Jets, the Patriots have a much tougher test ahead on Sunday Night Football: their American Football Conference (AFC) foe, the Baltimore Ravens. Eek.

🏈Back in primetime: Before the Pats beat the Jets, we briefly wondered (even if Cam couldn’t) if it was part of head coach Bill Belichick’s master plan to tank for Trevor. The upside from Monday’s great escape? Quarterback (QB) Cam Newton looked much better, finding a reliable target in breakout wide receiver Jakobi Meyers. Progress.

  • However, Newton and Meyers will need to watch out for Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey, who should be back from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Sunday. And of course, Ravens QB Lamar Jackson always poses a challenge, especially for a struggling Pats’ defense. Buckle up.
