New England Patriots: Josh Gordon solidifies them as best team in AFC

The 10 Most Important Stats From Week 2 in the NFL The 10 Most Important Stats From Week 2 in the NFL

The Patriots originally were supposed to get a seventh-round draft pick from the Browns only if Gordon is inactive for at least 10 games the rest of the season. It's up to him to fit in on a team that demands discipline.

There are tremendous expectations for Gordon in New England, as many hope he can provide Hall of Famer Randy Moss' level of production during his tenure with the team.

"He added: "'Do your job' is the big mantra that's pretty strong here.

"I always think trust is whatever receiver is out there, you know, you tell them to run a certain route and they run it the way that you talked about it, the ball is thrown, it's caught, it's a positive play and then you do it again", Brady said.

The Patriots have brought in several new faces since the season began, creating a constant jumbling on the depth chart. In the season-opening win over Houston, he completed passes to eight different players.

The proximity to Brady may be an effort to get the receiver up to speed while making sure Gordon doesn't spin out of control.

"That's not fair. I've never met Josh, personally - just like I hadn't met some of the guys who have come in the last couple of weeks. So we'll see how it goes this week and hopefully he can work hard, put the team first and end up helping us in any role that he can find for himself on the team".

The Patriots were missing two players to start the week - Trey Flowers and Patrick Chung.

The Patriots saw first hand back in 2013 how good Gordon is, as he recorded seven receptions for 151 yards and a touchdown in a game against the Patriots in Cleveland.
