The New England Patriots are winning football games and that should be all that matters.
However, while they have started the season with a perfect 4-0 record, they are not winning in their typical manner.
The Patriots' usual high-flying, quick-snap offense has been replaced by a huddle-first, grind-it-out game plan.
The long list of All-Pros and future Hall of Fame players have dwindled for New England. These Patriots are instead grooming undrafted rookies to succeed. Head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady are the main connection to the franchise's championship seasons of the past and its guides for the future.
Belichick and Brady are never satisfied and always strive for perfection. The Patriots may have a perfect record, but there are still plenty of questions that need to be answered this season.
