Patriots Kickoff Season on WNAW Sunday against the Dolphins
Patriots fans know this season will be very different than the last 19 seasons. This is the first season that Tom Brady will not be leading the Patriots offence. That job is now in the hands of Cam Newton, a stylish and outspoken QB in his first year with the Pats and new head coach Bill Belichick.
The strength of Tom Brady was his arm and his ability to get rid of the ball quickly before 300+ pound linemen buried him into the tuff. Cam Newton’s weapon (that is no secrete) is his ability to run as well as pass. With that new combination, as bummed as Pats fans were about losing the greatest quarterback of all time (GOAT), the excitement is building around what the new-look Patriots offence will look like and the level that they will compete at.
Without fans allowed in the stands, there will no tailgating or watching the game from inside Gillette. Instead Pats fans will be making themselves comfortable in their favorite recliner to watch the NFL from the comfort of their own home.
For Patriot fans traveling and not able to watch from home you can hear all the action here on WNAW and our sister station WBEC-AM in Pittsfield. Both stations will be carrying the Patriot games throughout the season. The first Patriots game is this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Kickoff Sunday is at 1pm.
Because of the Covid-19 outbreak, the NFL cancelled all 4 exhibition games each team plays to evaluate talent and prepare for the start of the season. Without the exhibition games the Pats game Sunday against the Dolphins will be our first look at the team and it counts for real.
Below is the Patriots schedule for the 2020-2021 season. All times listed below is the time of the kickoff. WNAW and WBEC-AM broadcast will begin with the Patriots pregame show 30-minutes before each game.
