In the video above, Countdown Daily's Steve Levy and Mark Schlereth discuss Patriots owner Bob Kraft’s difficult year, with the devastating loss of his wife, Myra, and its effect on the team.
Schlereth says Myra Kraft's death had a huge impact on the Patriots, especially with the family atmosphere the Krafts have created at Gillette Stadium.
"You can see how much the New England Patriots appreciate him, and how much they appreciate his late wife," Schlereth said. "There's a real sense of unity, of family, of togetherness there in that New England organization. And it's not fabricated. It's real."
