In 2013 White Isaiah Wynn Jerseys , Josh Gordon was the NFL’s best wide receiver. Despite catching passes from the immortal trio of Jason Campbell, Brandon Weeden and Brian Hoyer, the 22-year old finished the season with 87 receptions for 1,646 yards – 30.4% of the Cleveland Browns’ offensive output that year – and nine touchdowns. In the five years since his breakout campaign, however, Gordon was never able to come close to the same production.His inability to stay on the field is the main reason for that: between 2014 and 2017, Gordon appeared in just 10 of a possible 64 games while missing more than two whole seasons due to various suspensions. Despite all that, the Browns held onto the immensely talented but troubled wideout – until last month that is: in mid-September, Cleveland put the 27-year old on the trade block after he had hurt his hamstring during a promotional photo shoot.Having plenty of issues at the wide receiver position, the New England Patriots decided to take a shot at Gordon. The team traded a fifth-round draft choice in 2019 to the Browns to acquire him and a conditional seventh-rounder – and with every new game Isaiah Wynn Jerseys 2019 , the trade keeps looking worse for Cleveland. One month has passed since the team shipped Gordon away, and by now he is an integral piece of one of the NFL’s highest-scoring offenses.Yesterday’s contest against the Chicago Bears was the latest example of just how absurd it is that New England was able to acquire a player of Gordon’s caliber for the price of a day three draft pick. Playing all but two offensive snaps, the 6’3, 225 lbs wide receiver caught four passes for a combined 100 yards – his first 100-yard performance since joining the Patriots, and only his second since the 2014 season.Along the way, Gordon made two of the biggest plays of the game. In the second quarter, he caught an impressive 19-yard pass to convert a 4th and 1; the Patriots scored a touchdown five plays later. In the fourth quarter, he caught a deep pass on a crossing pattern and, after breaking two tackle attempts, took the reception 55-yards to the Bears 1; the Patriots scored a touchdown two plays later.Both catches illustrate what Gordon brings to the Patriots offense: immense athletic ability paired with a natural feel for New England’s schemes and a high football IQ. On top of all that White Sony Michel Jerseys , his chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady also keeps growing by the week. “We are just going to keep developing our confidence in one another,” Brady said during his postgame press conference yesterday. “He’s making great plays when I throw him the ball.”Brady is not the only one of Gordon’s teammates to praise him after his first 100-yard performance in a Patriots uniform. “He’s working extremely hard,” running back and team captain James White noted after the game. “He’s buying in. Just paying attention to everything that the coaches have been talking to him about and he’s playing hard and he’s been making big plays for us.”“He’s a threat. He goes down the field and makes plays. He’s come in and he’s worked hard,” fellow wide receiver Julian Edelman, who caught five passes for 36 yards and a touchdown against the Bears, said about Gordon. Edelman, one of the more outspoken members on the Patriots, also had some words for the rest of the NFL: “I just want to say thanks to the league. It’s pretty cool to have a guy like him and play with a dynamic player.”The first team that needs to be mentioned when it comes to “the league” has to be the Browns. While they reached a dead end with Gordon, shipping him away to a team like the Patriots – a conference rival with the NFL’s best quarterback and coaching staff – for a fifth-round selection needs to be second guessed. Then again, personnel decisions are a big reason why Cleveland has won a combined three games over the last three seasons.EDIT: They also make the Cowboys look worse because Dallas just sent away a first round pick to the Oakland Raiders for WR Amari Cooper. Yikes. The dominance of the Patriots' defense was at the center of each of their eight consecutive victories to open the season.Its knack for forcing turnovers Sony Michel Jerseys 2019 , limiting opponents' rushing yards and ability to force three-and-outs helped it demoralize opposing offenses on a weekly basis.It did show some vulnerability during New England's lone loss of the season to the Ravens in Week 9. But the Patriots (8-1) still boast one of the NFL's best defensive units as they prepare for the second half of the season.With no defensive coordinator and coach Bill Belichick calling the plays, a veteran group of self-proclaimed "Boogeymen" linebackers and ball-hawking secondary lead a defense that is allowing a league-low 11 points per game and has forced an NFL-best 27 turnovers.But after facing a mostly soft schedule over its first nine games (opponents were a combined 21-43), New England will return from its bye staring at its toughest four-game stretch of the season. Those opponents — Philadelphia, Dallas, Houston and Kansas City — have a combined 22-13 record.It's a challenge New England's defense says it's ready to confront."We can't think we're going to fix every problem we've had during the season, during the bye week; it just doesn't work like that. I think if it did, you'd see a lot of better football teams," safety and captain Devin McCourty said. "It's not the first game we've ever lost."Nor is it the first time the Patriots' defense has dealt with criticism in recent years.It spent most of the 2018 season trying to prove that the departure of defensive coordinator Matt Patricia wouldn't prevent it from developing into a championship-caliber unit.Following a slow start, it did just that under Brian Flores, who helped it become one of the league's stingiest defenses by the end of the regular season. It went on to shut down the Rams in the Super Bowl to help secure New England's sixth Lombardi Trophy.After Flores departed this past offseason to become Miami's head coach Byron Cowart Jersey Boys , Belichick tapped former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano to be his new defensive coordinator.But Schiano asked to leave the job for family reasons after just two months. Instead of finding a replacement, Belichick decided to take over play calling for the defense himself.He also brought in former Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo to coach the inside linebackers.Safety Duron Harmon said having Belichick assume play-calling duties only amplifies the presence he's always had."It's his defense," Harmon said. "He's ran this defense for a long time. So he's always had input. I've had different defensive coordinators since I've been here, so we're kind of used to dealing with change."And adapting to it.While Belichick hasn't altered much about the defense's alignment over the past three seasons, he has tweaked it this season.The Patriots still play a higher percentage of man-coverage sets than any other team in the league and the zero-blitz — or not using a deep safety to protect the back half of the field — is still one of its hallmarks.But New England has switched from a base 3-4 alignment to a 4-3.That's helped linebackers Jamie Collins, Dont'a Hightower and Kyle Van Noy move more freely in the middle of the field and created more opportunities for them as run stoppers.Another byproduct has been the creation of an overall atmosphere for forcing turnovers, which has become the Patriots' calling card. There is now an expectation among members of the defense to "hunt the football," McCourty said.Collins, Hightower and Van Noy collectively have forced five fumbles and have four fumble recoveries. Collins also has three interceptions — a career high.Meanwhile, the secondary has excelled on the back half on the field White Duke Dawson Jerseys , benefiting from the pressure the front seven is getting on quarterbacks to capitalize on errant passes. New England's defensive backs have been responsible for 13 interceptions.The result has been opponents having to alter their game plans.Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. said they went into their matchup against the Patriots with an aggressive plan to take shots down the field in the passing game. It didn't happen."I just felt like we didn't challenge as much as we could have," Beckham said. "I think we kind of shied away from it."Among the factors that likely contributed were Cleveland's three consecutive turnovers in the first quarter that put the Browns in a 17-0 hole.Hightower said turnovers are a carrot they chase each week in their attempt to shut down opposing offenses."Whenever we go out, we have the attitude that there's no reason why we can't force them to go three-and-out, there's no reason why we can't get a pick on the first play, there's no reason why we can't knock the ball out," he said. "Whenever you have 11 guys on the field that are conscious of the ball or the quarterback and running back, good things happen."Follow Kyle Hightower on Twitter at twitter.com/khightower
