4. Brock Osweiler is throwing interceptions

Only Jameis Winston has thrown more interceptions than Osweiler so far this season. The former Denver Broncos quarterback tossed a pick in Week 1 and then two interceptions in Week 2.

To put it in perspective, Osweiler has already thrown half as many interceptions as he did in all of last season. It becomes a little bit tougher to play quarterback once you get outside of Denver.

This writer is looking for a member of the Patriots’ cornerback group, be it Malcolm Butler or Logan Ryan or Justin Coleman or Cyrus Jones, to come up with a big play in Week 3.
