If nothing else, N’Keal Harry is saying all the right things.
The rookie receiver caught a 10-yard touchdown pass, the first of his NFL career, in the New England Patriots’ gritty win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. He was far from perfect, though, as a pair of dropped balls and an inability to separate from defenders prevented what could have been a true coming-out party.
After the game, Harry promised to turn his game “up a notch” in the coming weeks. He echoed those sentiments in a tweet Monday morning.

Harry’s attitude has endeared him to quarterback Tom Brady — no easy task — and likely will make him a favorite among Patriots fans.
It’s clear the first-round pick can talk the talk, but the Patriots will need him to walk the walk if the passing offense ever is to become championship-caliber.
