FOXBORO — The New England Patriots’ offense line has been re-configured quite a bit this season. With the injury to left tackle Isaiah Wynn that placed him on injured reserve, Marshall Newhouse was thrown into the starting lineup to protect the NFL’s oldest and best quarterback.
The Patriots put all their eggs in the Wynn basket, so when he went down, the team wasn’t prepared with a suitable backup and had to find Newhouse off the street. While he’s received a fair share of criticism, Newhouse has statistically performed quite well.
Then throw in the loss of starting center and captain, David Andrews, due to blood clots in his lung. Tom Brady now has Ted Karras snapping him the ball and has been pleased with the transition.
With the shaky depth at this position, Sierra Goodwill, Alex Barth and Evan Lazar discuss what grade this group has earned so far this season.
