Top 5 New England Patriots Players This Season


The Patriots had an acceptable season this year and then lost to the Titans in the wildcard round. This is a list of the top 5 New England Patriots players this season. 

Number 5 – Jamie Collins Jr. 

Jamie Collins Jr. came back to New England after being released by the Cleveland Browns. Collins had seven sacks, a career-high, three interceptions, and 57 tackles. He was a crucial part of helping the Patriots defense become one of the greatest defenses in the NFL. He is part of the insane linebacker unit, and hopefully, he will resign with the Patriots in the offseason.

Mini Megatron is next on the list. Julian Edelman fought through injuries all season and still played like a mini God.
