Analysis: Garoppolo enjoyed a successful stint while filling in during Tom Brady's suspension related to "Deflategate" last season. The Eastern Illinois product completed 68.3 percent of his passes with four touchdowns and no interceptions. He won both of his starts before sustaining a shoulder injury. Garoppolo subsequently was replaced for the last two games of Brady's suspension by the Patriots' then-third-stringer, Jacoby Brissett.

Analysis: "You never know if you're going to play a little or a lot," said Garoppolo, who played two quarters and then went out for two more series in the second half. "When he put me back in, I was happy to get back out there with the guys." Unless Brady gets injured, these exhibition games are probably Garoppolo's only chance before he is eligible for free agency at the end of the season to show other teams he can play.

Analysis: League sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that New England intends to keep the 25-year-old Garoppolo for 2017 and possibly beyond. The Cleveland Browns, Chicago Bears, San Francisco 49ers and New York Jets were all were mentioned as being interested in trading for Garoppolo, who has one year remaining on his rookie contract with a base salary of $820,077 in 2017. Garoppolo played in six games in 2016, completing 68.3 percent of his passes for 502 yards with four TDs.
