The New England Patriots are less than a week away from their first preseason game and it couldn't come fast enough. Expectations for this years team are high based on the talent that was brought in during the off season, but that talent is clearly getting tired of practicing against each other. New defensive back Brandon Browner has impressed with his ability to shut down Pats receivers with his physical play. That asset led to a shouting match between himself and wide receivers coach Chad O'Shea at Thursday's practice.

New England will have practices against Washington next week before playing the Redskins in their first preseason game on Thursday. You can hear that game live on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket.
