WATCH: Jarrett Stidham connects with Damoun Patterson for beautiful TD pass

The New England Patriots spent a fourth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft on Jarrett Stidham. And so far, through two weeks of preseason action, he has made some nice throws.

On Saturday night, Stidham was able to add to his highlight reel with a perfect 23-yard strike to Damoun Patterson. On the play, Stidham lofted the ball beautifully to the front corner of the endzone on a third-and-12 opportunity. Patterson was able to make the catch and get his feet down to score the first aerial TD of the Patriots' day.

Here's a look at the full play via the Patriots' official Twitter account.

The pass by Stidham put the Patriots ahead 22-17 with 4:12 left in the fourth quarter. It was their first lead of the game against the Tennessee Titans.

Stidham has flashed some so far this preseason and it looks like the Patriots have unearthed another solid, young quarterback via the draft. We'll soon see what the team plans to do with him, though it seems likely they'll keep him on board as the third-string quarterback even despite Brian Hoyer's mostly quiet night in Nashville.

Antonio Brown's release has approval of many in Patriots organization

Antonio Brown's release has approval of many in Patriots organization

Antonio Brown getting released on Friday apparently was a breath of fresh air for many within the Patriots organization.

New England parted ways with the troubled wide receiver on the same day intimidating text messages sent by Brown to one of his accusers were leaked to the public. It was only the latest chapter in the seemingly neverending Antonio Brown saga, and the Patriots finally decided enough was enough.

According to Mike Giardi of NFL Network, the team cutting Brown was well received by the folks in Foxboro.

While some within the organization rejoiced upon hearing the news of Brown's release, quarterback Tom Brady showed support for his former wide receiver with a heartfelt message on Instagram.

Brown lasted only 11 days in New England and played in just one game -- last Sunday's 43-0 win over the Dolphins. The 31-year-old had four catches for 56 yards and one touchdown in his lone appearance in a Pats uniform.

The most embarrassing moments in Jets history

Ah, the New York Jets.

Year in and year out, the Patriots' AFC East rival just can't seem to get out of its own way. The franchise has been defined by embarrassing miscues and headlines for decades now, and its on-field product certainly hasn't helped its cause.

With the Patriots preparing for a matchup against the Jets on Sunday, we figured it would be worth taking a trip down memory lane to revisit some of the most laughable moments in the organization's history. In no particular order, here they are in all of their glory. . .
