During yesterday’s Toucher & Rich radio program, Rich and Fred delved into the New England Patriots‘ weekly press release, also known as “Game Notes,” which typically highlight positive aspects of the team’s recent games. The guys shared their thoughts on finding silver linings in a game that hadn’t gone well, which has been a common occurrence with the team this season.
On Sunday, the New England Patriots had yet another tough game. Despite their struggles, they stayed somewhat competitive until the fourth quarter, but they couldn’t overcome penalties and turnovers, and the game ended with a 20-17 loss to the Washington Commanders. The Patriots’ season record is now abysmal 2-7. Mac Jones was 24-44, with 220 yards, one touchdown, and one interception, resulting in a passer rating of 66.5.
The Patriots’ PR team regularly provides “Game Notes” that aim to emphasize the positive takeaways from each game. This standard practice offers the media a chance to focus on the team’s achievements, even in tough situations.
This week’s “Game Notes” prominently featured running back Rhamondre Stevenson, with his career-long 64-yard run and three touchdowns of at least 30 yards were highlighted as standout moments.
