This past weekend was a heart breaker for the New England Patriots. After a scoreless first half, the game opened up in the third quarter with the Giants going ahead 10-3. The Pats had a chance to win in the fourth leading the game 20-17 with a minute and a half remaining. The Giants drove down and scored with fifteen seconds remaining on a pass to Jake Ballard. The loss created a three-way tie for first in the AFC East and caused the Patriots to drop six spots to 10. While it may be too soon to truly worry, there is a cause for concern with the current play of the defense, more specifically the secondary. With a relatively easy upcoming schedule with games against the Chiefs, Eagles, Colts, and Redskins, the Pats need to come away 3-1 if they have playoff hopes. 

The Jets improved to 11, the Bills dropped to 12, and the Miami Dolphins are 30 after picking up the first win of the season.
