Patriots continue roster building in preseason

(TSX / STATS) -- FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- With summertime 19-0 talk still bubbling throughout fans and media alike, the New England Patriots have opened preseason action with consecutive losses following Saturday night's 27-23 defeat at the hands of the Texans in Houston.

Now, no one will pretend that preseason action is an indicator of regular-season potential. New England sat out 40 top players in the preseason opening loss to the Jaguars in Foxborough. Quarterback Tom Brady played a couple series this week, while tight end Rob Gronkowski saw his first preseason action since 2012.

But, in reality, the work done on the field - and the work that takes place earlier in the week in the join practices the team has held with the Jaguars and Texans - is what matters most, not any specific play, result or statistic. After the loss, head coach Bill Belichick said everyone on his team is making progress before adding his summertime motto that everyone has a long way to go.
