However, a lost fumble that resulted in a touchback in the third quarter of Sunday’s win over the Miami Dolphins left a sour aftertaste upon what had been Harry’s most productive game so far in the NFL. Patriots quarterback Cam Newton was asked about Harry’s fumble and Newton did his best to broaden the focus on Harry’s contribution to the team instead.
“Let’s just put a lot of things into perspective here,” Newton said, via Mike Reiss of ESPN.com. “Did he have a good game? Yes, he did. I think that one play overshadowed the production he did have. He bailed me out on a play, on a kind of inaccurate pass that he came down with and got the first down. He did pretty good in the run game. He had a couple contested catches. And all that was kind of for naught because a lot of people focused on the fumble.”
Harry never had more than three catches or 29 yards in any of the seven games he appeared in for the Patriots last season. Against the Dolphins on Sunday, Harry caught five passes for 39 yards for an offense that attempted just 19 passes overall in the game.
The Patriots were leading 14-3 late in the third quarter with a first-and-goal at the Miami 10-yard line when Harry caught a drag from Newton and sprinted for the end zone. However, linebacker Jerome Baker caught Harry inside the 5-yard line and wrestled the ball out of his grasp. It went through the end zone for a touchback that kept the Dolphins within reach of New England.
“It was just one mistake,” Newton said. “Him still being a young player trying to come into his own, things like that will happen. You just want it to be minimized as much as possible. But he’s making leaps and strides as everyone would expect him to be. He’s growing up into his best self.”
The mistake ultimately didn’t derail the Patriots as they earned a 21-11 win over the Dolphins last week. However, the margin for error could be significantly less against the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday night.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry call for end to ‘structural racism in UK’ as he reveals his ‘awakening’
PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle have called for an end to "structural racism" in the UK.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said young people of colour would be held back "as long as structural racism exists".
⚠️ Read our Meghan and Harry blog for the latest news on the Royal couple6Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said structural racism held back young people in the UK 6Harry also spoke about his 'awakening' in the Zoom callCredit: AP:Associated Press
In a Zoom interview from their new £11million home in Santa Barbara, California, Harry said: "I've had an awakening of my own" as he discussed the lack of opportunities that ethnic minorities face.
The sixth-in-line to the throne said: "Because I wasn’t aware of so many of the issues and so many of the problems within the UK and also globally as well. I thought I did but I didn’t."
What Harry and Meghan said:
- Prince Harry spoke of his 'awakening' around racial issues in the UK and the world
- The royal said society 'has been created by white people for white people'
- The 35-year-old said London 'doesn’t feel as diverse as it actually is' when you walk through the capital's streets
- Harry defended Diversity's performance on Britain's Got Talent
- Meghan Markle said the couple were being 'kept on their toes' with baby Archie
- The Duchess called peaceful BLM protests 'beautiful'
- Harry referred to his 'job' travelling around the world and visiting communities
- The couple penned a piece for the Evening Standard to mark Black History Month
The 36-year-old added: "You know, when you go in to a shop with your children and you only see white dolls, do you even think, ‘That’s weird, there is not a black doll there?’
"And I use that as just one example of where we as white people don’t always have the awareness of what it must be like for someone else of a different coloured skin, of a black skin, to be in the same situation as we are where the world that we know has been created by white people for white people.”
Previously, Meghan has revealed how her dad Thomas Markle bought two sets of Barbie dolls for her to make a biracial family when she was made to feel upset over her heritage as a child.
In an article for the newspaper, the pair said: "As long as structural racism exists, there will be generations of young people of colour who do not start their lives with the same equality of opportunity as their white peers. And for as long as that continues, untapped potential will never get to be realised."
For the Zoom chat, Meghan wore a long-sleeved brown asymmetrical top with leather trousers while Harry wore a navy blue collared shirt and dark grey trousers.
The couple said they wanted their "passion and commitment" to still be felt despite the physical distance between the US and UK.
Harry said: "It is not about pointing the finger, it is not about blame. I will be the first person to say, again, this is about learning. And about how we can make it better.
"I think it is a really exciting time in British culture and British history, and in world culture. This is a real moment that we should be grasping and actually celebrating.
"Because no one else has managed to do this before us."
Harry, who moved to the US with Meghan, 39, earlier this year, said: "The UK is incredibly diverse and London is celebrated as one of the most diverse cities in the world, yet if you actually get out on to the streets and talk to people, it doesn’t feel as diverse as it actually is."

Meghan referenced her time living in the UK, saying: "Truth be told, I was in the UK for a few years until we moved back here.
"I didn't realise there was a Black History Month in Britain. To have that - it's about celebrating community."
The couple nominated a string of "Next Gen Trailblazers" to champion Black Brits as part of the awareness month, with Harry referring to his "job" in raising awareness for charities and organisations.
Describing how they picked those on the list of young inspiriing leaders, he said: "This job has a certain uniqueness about it where we travel around the world but visit many communities in the UK and the same names keep coming up.
"We're really impressed, humbled and inspired by these individuals."
And despite living across the pond, the couple are still managing to keep in touch with what is happening in the UK.
Harry revealed the couple had spoken to Ashley Banjo who performed a politically charged BLM dance on Britain's Got Talent.
The routine received over 22,000 Ofcom complaints, with many saying it was too political for the family show.
Harry weighed in to defend the performance, saying: "I am sure even me talking about it will be controversial".
He added: "We had such a good chat with Ashley. He was really strong, he felt great about it, but at the same time he was concerned because of the reaction."
And he said that despite the distance, he and Meghan were saying in touch with charities and organisations "as much as humanly possible".
Meghan added: "Everyone has been accustomed to what it means to be distanced.
"The impact of that, whether it is across the pond or across town, you are still for the most part through a computer screen.
"We have all had to adapt to how we can have the most impact as possible within the constraints of what has happening with Covid-19.
"Like all of you, we are doing the best that we can and hoping that our passion and our commitment is still felt as it certainly hasn’t wavered."
The duchess - who recently said the coronavirus pandemic was forcing people to go through a "reset" - also spoke out about the Black Lives Matter protests.'GET UNCOMFORTABLE'
The former Suits actress said that the demonstrations had been "inflammatory" for many but said many peaceful protests were simply about wanting recognition.
She said: "That is a beautiful thing.
"While it has been challenging for a lot of people certainly having to make this reckoning of historical significance that has got people to the place that they are, that is uncomfortable for people. We recognise that. It is uncomfortable for us."
Harry then weighed in, saying his wife's words had been "perfectly said".
And yet despite the tumultuous year, the couple said they were "doing well".
Meghan said: "We are doing well. [Archie] is so good. We are very lucky with our little one. He is just so busy, he is all over the place. He keeps us on our toes. We are just so lucky.”
The couple appeared relaxed in the interview, grinning when their pet beagle Guy jumped on the sofa.Most read in NewsBRAZEN DISPLAYCouple filmed having sex on street in front of shocked shoppers spared jailExclusivetoddler coke death'Playful' girl, 3, died after taking cocaine her dealer dad left at homeMARINE TRAGEDYMel B's bodyguard, 31, found hanged in military uniform after PTSD battleCOP ATTACKSick moment crowd shouts 'light them up' as police officers doused in fuelFANGS FOR NOTHINGFalse widow spider in 'sex-crazed frenzy' due to mating season bites granExclusiveHALL-FLU-WEENSick Coronavirus Halloween 'masks' made by Chinese firm being sold on Amazon
