The New England Patriots have been a highly-discussed team throughout the NFL offseason.
Their current roster construction has been picked apart by many, and Bill Belichick’s coaching styles have also been called into question.
Regardless of the Patriots’ on-field production this season, it appears that they’ll be rolling into the new season with several stadium changes.
According to Front Office Sports, the Patriots are slated to make $250 million in upgrades to Gillette Stadium.

These changes include a 22-foot lighthouse, new premium seating, and what is said to be the largest video board in the United States.
As Front Office Sports reports, these updates should be ready on week 1 of the 2023 season, which will complete the largest stadium upgrade in team history.
While these upgrades should enhance the fan experience, many questions have been raised about where the Patriots stand.
The AFC East has gotten significantly more difficult over the past few seasons, which wasn’t the case when Brady was in town.
Josh Allen has brought the Buffalo Bills from their former pit of despair, and if Tua Tagovailoa is healthy, will do the same for the Miami Dolphins.
Even though they have missed the playoffs for 12 straight years, the New York Jets finally have hope now that Aaron Rodgers is at the helm.
Mac Jones has a lot of pressure to succeed this year.
Will the former first-round pick live up to this potential, leading the Patriots to an unlikely path to the playoffs?
