Despite Friday's weather forecast, the approach of autumn is evident — particularly now that the 2016 NFL season is underway.

The New England Patriots kick off their season in Arizona against the Cardinals on Sunday night.

However, the Patriots' best known player won't be there, as quarterback Tom Brady has started serving his suspension over the so-called Deflategate controversy.

ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss joined WBUR's Morning Edition to give a preview of what to expect from the Patriots this season.

This segment aired on September 9, 2016.
