The big story for the 2020 New England Patriots was the departure of Tom Brady and the disintegration of the offense. But just as meaningful in the team's 7-9 finish was the extreme decline of the defense, from historically great in 2019 to 26th in the league in 2020. For 2021, new additions (and returns from COVID opt out) should help the defense rebound. The status of the offense, whether it is led by Cam Newton or rookie Mac Jones, is a bigger question mark.  – Bryan Knowles
