It was the talk of the town going into this game. Nearly 3 years after he was traded away to the San Francisco 49ers, former Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo was making his return to Foxborough to play against the team that drafted him back in 2014.
Looking to bounce back after a horrendous 18-12 loss to the Broncos the previous week, the Patriots were eager to ruin the ‘homecoming’ and, at the same time, try to avoid going 2-4 for the first time since 2000.
From start to finish, it was an absolute ass-whooping of which Pats nation had not seen before. But instead of getting a much deserved chuckle and laugh at Jimmy G’s expense, it was quite the opposite.
