This is the part where all the people who hates the Pats (so, basically anyone not living in New England) comes out and says, "Oh! So they're blaming the turf on getting their back-ends handed to them by the Chiefs on Thursday? They're just mad they couldn't cheat this time!"
And I mean, in the haters' defense, it doesn't look that good for the Pats when they get owned on their home field and suddenly have an issue with the turf, but regardless -- back in May, there was actually brand new, state-of-the-art turf installed. After the game on Thursday, though, the players were complaining that the turf felt too soft.
Their next home game isn't for a couple weeks, so we'll see if the new turf being installed has any impact on their gameplay in Week 3.
