Patriots WR N’Keal Harry had a forgettable rookie season that extended to Week 1 when the 2019 first-round pick fumbled a ball out of the endzone for a touchback. However, Harry’s quarterback, Cam Newton, stuck up for him and pointed out the true fact that it was Harry’s best game as a Patriot with five catches for 39 yards.
“Let’s just put a lot of things into perspective here,” Newton said via ESPN’s Mike Reiss. “Did he have a good game? Yes, he did. I think that one play overshadowed the production he did have. He bailed me out on a play, on a kind of inaccurate pass that he came down with and got the first down. He did pretty good in the run game. He had a couple contested catches. And all that was kind of for naught because a lot of people focused on the fumble.”
- ESPN’s Bill Barnwell notes it appears the Patriots are using WR Julian Edelman exclusively as a slot receiver, with Harry and WR Damiere Byrd getting the nod outside in two-receiver sets. Edelman still led the team with seven targets.
