Nick Wright Has ‘Real Reason’ To Bet Against Patriots This Upcoming Season


September 2, 2019

Remember when Nick Wright said he wouldn’t be “foolish” and doubt the New England Patriots?

Well, it didn’t last very long.

During Monday’s episode of FOX Sports 1’s “First Things First,” Wright said he had a “real reason to get against” New England. No, it’s not Tom Brady’s age, or how Josh Gordon will perform in his first regular-season game in eight months, it’s because of another AFC team.

“The real reason to bet against the Patriots has nothing to do with the Patriots and everything to do with the team they’d have to go through,” Wright said. “The Kansas City Chiefs are the best team in the AFC this year, and the best team in the NFL this year.”

Sounds like he’s doubting the Patriots a bit.

Wright on July 21 said, “But are (the Patriots) the favorites in the AFC? They?re certainly right there because, at this point, the history and the repeated success is unquestionable.”

Perhaps there will be some competition in the race for unofficial Patriots “hater of the year” this year.
