QB - NE - PUP
Week 6 Outlook
Jarrett Stidham completed just 4-of-11 passes for 44 yards after taking over for Cam Newton in Week 16.
Stidham played nearly the entire second half but didn't look any more impressive than his benched counterpart. It's safe to say that even if he starts Week 17 against the Dolphins, he can't be relied upon as anything more than a QB3.
Patriots quarterback Jarrett Stidham entered Thursday night's game against the Los Angeles Rams in relief of Cam Newton with 10:12 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Patriots trailing, 24-3.
With the Patriots generating just three points of offense through nearly three and a half quarters, Stidham enters a game that is already out of hand. However, he may be auditioning for the starting role in the coming weeks.
Jarrett Stidham completed 6-of-10 passes for 64 yards and an interception in the Patriots' Week 7 blowout loss to the 49ers.
Stidham relieved a struggling Cam Newton early in the fourth quarter. New England was mostly trying to bleed clock as this game was well out of reach by that point. Newton will remain the starter moving forward.
According to sources, if Cam Newton is unable to play in Week 5 against the Broncos, Jarrett Stidham would likely get the start.
The Patriots started Brian Hoyer in Newton’s place in Week 4, but he was replaced by Stidham in the second half. The Patriots and Broncos are slated to play Monday night at 5:00 PM, EDT, so you’ll likely want to have another option as a backup should there be any issues with the game being played. It’s still a question mark whether or not Newton will be cleared to play this week after testing positive for COVID-19 a week ago.
Jarrett Stidham came into the Patriots' Week 4 game against the Chiefs with the team trailing in the second half, completing 5-of-13 passes for 60 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions.
Stidham came in to relieve Brian Hoyer, who was struggling mightily in this one. The sophomore quarterback out of Auburn wasn't making the same mental mistakes as Hoyer, but he didn't exactly inspire much confidence in the offense to finish the game. A goal-line fade thrown to N'Keal Harrry was the highlight. Otherwise, Stidham just didn't have it. The Patriots desperately need Cam Newton to return in Week 5 against Denver.
