A muffed punt that turned the tide of the Patriots’ loss on Sunday night has cost Chris Harper his job.
Tom Curran of CSNNE.com reports that Harper was cut today.
The Patriots appeared to be in total control of the game early in the fourth quarter on Sunday night: They had a 21-7 lead and had just forced the Broncos to punt. But Harper muffed the punt, the Broncos recovered, and four plays later they scored a touchdown. Denver went on to win the game in overtime.
