To be clear, things didn’t go well for Trent Brown during his only season with the Las Vegas Raiders. Not only did he appear to be falling behind as a gamer, he also had an unfortunate near-death experience that caused him to retire due to his long recovery.

On Tuesday, November 16, Brown told reporters that he “almost died” after “an IV accident”. The Athletic’s Matthew Fairburn tweeted part of the story.

To make matters worse, the IV problem came shortly after Brown battled his way back from COVID-19, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.

When you consider what happened to Brown during his short and sadly eventful stint with the Raiders, it’s easy to see why he was dying to return to the New England Patriots, where he helped win a Super Bowl.

Brown’s 2021 season got off to a bumpy start. He injured his calf in the Patriots’ week 1 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Brown didn’t return to the lineup until Week 10 against the Cleveland Browns.

Brown suffered a minor injury against Cleveland in the first half, but that didn’t keep him off the field all the time. He returned to the Patriots Offensive and helped anchor a unit that included a resurgent Isaiah Wynn, David Andres, Ted Karras and Shaq Mason.

It seems he will be ready by Thursday night when the Patriots go south to face the Atlanta Falcons in Thursday Night Football.

The only team in the NFL to have a longer winning streak than the current four-game Patriots run are the Tennessee Titans. New England are looking to increase their winning streak to five games against a Falcons team that has just been mistreated by the Dallas Cowboys 43-3.

On the one hand, it’s easy to imagine that a team like the Patriots, who played so well, would step in and add to the misery of the Falcons. That could happen, but we also need to be prepared to watch a desperate group of professionals eager to recover against a suddenly solid squad of Patriots.

This is still the NFL and any team is dangerous. Bill Belichick’s main job – in a short week – is to make sure his team is ready to play. This could be a potential pitfall for the Patriots, considering it will face a young opponent in a short week.

Given the dynamism, this could be one of the Patriots’ toughest wins of the season. You’ll need Brown and the rest of the offensive to set the tone on the offensive and take some pressure off the defense.
