New England Nation

FOXBORO, Mass. (WPRI) — The New England Patriots will have some much-needed time off this weekend but before resting up, the team got together Wednesday for the only practice of their bye week.

While the Patriots are coming off their first loss of the season handed to them by the Baltimore Ravens, there was a positive vibe during practice as they look ahead to the back half of their schedule.

Tight end Ben Watson and safety Patrick Chung weren’t present for Wednesday’s practice.

The team will be off Thursday to Sunday, giving them a chance to heal and catch their collective breath before they return next Monday to continue getting ready to face the Eagles in Philadelphia on Sunday, Nov. 17. Kickoff is scheduled for 4:25 p.m.

Eyewitness Sports reporter Ruthie Polinsky will have more coverage from Gillette Stadium tonight starting at 5 on WPRI 12.
