Matt Dolloff and Alex Barth are back for the Week 8 edition of their Patriots podcast for 98.5 The Sports Hub. There’s a lot to get to with the Patriots reeling at 2-4 and some intriguing off-season storylines. First they discuss the Julian Edelman injury, the state of the Patriots’ wide receiver corps, and whether they should add to this group at the trade deadline or in free agency (1:43). Then they go in-depth on the struggles of quarterback Cam Newton, what the Pats should do to get him right, and what needs to happen in Buffalo on Sunday (8:22).

Plus: Stephon Gilmore may or may not be on the trade block. Either way, it seems like this will be his last season in New England. But should the Patriots trade him now or later? (20:35) Finally, Matt and Alex give their predictions for Patriots Bills, while Alex makes an interesting historical connection between this year’s Patriots and the 2002 team (28:08).
