Belichick Says Clock Management Goes Exactly to Plan to Beat Ravens; Wait, What?

Duron Harmon closed the gap quickly, ranging in from center field to position himself perfectly to intercept Joe Flacco’s deep pass looking for Torrey Smith in the end zone and close out a nerve-wracking, come-from-behind win for the New England Patriots. Or so it seemed. Instead of running out the clock with the two minute […]

Colts or Broncos: Should the Patriots Care Who They Play in AFC Championship?

After a rousing, back-and-forth, come-from-behind victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday, the New England Patriots will host next week’s AFC Championship for the right to play in Super Bowl XLIV. With their place in the AFC title game decided, eyes turn westward this afternoon for the other game to decide who will play the Patriots […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 15

Just two games remain in the season. Still, though, several teams remain alive. Even in the NFC, with the way so many of the best teams are playing, one loss means the difference between #2 and #6. In the AFC, the strong North Division, Johnny Football excepted of course, is threatening to put three teams […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 7

After seven weeks, both conferences have new leaders. Multiple division leaders are starting to slip, while other teams are responding by making a move in the standings. Defending champion Seattle lost their second straight game, getting upset by special teams trickery in St Louis. The Jaguars finally got a win, leaving Oakland as the lone […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 6

Six weeks into the season, there are still many teams that could be considered champion material. And thanks to injuries and underperforming, many are also fighting for draft positioning. Five teams have a single loss on their record, and Cincinnati has a loss and tie. Oakland and Jacksonville continue to be dream opponents for teams […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 4

For most teams, the NFL season is already a fourth of the way done. The Raiders have a new coach. Seattle has already suffered a rough upset. Injuries are continuing to be an issue across the league. All the domestic violence in the news has led to stars being cut or banned and multiple press […]

Ray Rice Suspended Indefinitely After TMZ Publicizes Domestic Abuse Video

Wes Welker was suspended four games for supposedly doing Molly at the Kentucky Derby. Josh Gordon was suspended for the entire season for testing positive for marijuana for the second time (though it’s probably safe to assume it wasn’t his second time smoking pot). Ray Rice was suspended two games for a domestic abuse incident […]

Patriots Clinch AFC East with Dolphins Loss

It’s not even halftime of their game against the Baltimore Ravens, but the New England Patriots have already clinched their fifth straight AFC East division title. Looks like Bill Belichick didn’t have to look to Marky Mark for inspiration after all. The assists goes to the Buffalo Bills for doing what the Patriots could not […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 15

Just two weeks remain in the NFL season, and only four out of 12 teams have clinched a playoff spot; only the fourth-seeded Colts have clinched a division. While mathematical possibilities still remain, many teams are comfortable with a spot, but seeding remains a hotly contested issue, especially with Denver losing and New Orleans and […]

Patriots-Ravens Inexplicably Flexed Out of Sunday Night Football Slot

Defending Super Bowl champions? Check. Perennial Super Bowl contender? Check. Two playoff bound teams? Check. Two star quarterbacks? Check, and check. A rematch of last year’s AFC title game? Oh, the last TWO AFC title games? Discount double check. Basically, the New England Patriots taking on the Baltimore Ravens fits every possible criteria for what […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 14

Just three games remain in the schedule, and more teams are clinching spots. A record number of ACL tears for a season continues to grow as well, which is quite unfortunate for everyone involved, and shakes things up greatly for the teams that were counting on them. Four of the divisions are led by a […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 13

Just a month remains in the season, yet only the 11-1 Seahawks have even clinched a spot. Other races are getting closer, particularly the Wildcard race in the AFC, where nearly everyone is still alive. And while the 49ers continue to hold onto a spot, several teams are right on their heels as well. Just […]

Ed Reed, Patriots A Good Match

There’s no reason why the New England Patriots shouldn’t at least talk to Ed Reed about the possibility of joining the team. The Patriots don’t need Reed and Reed doesn’t need the Patriots, but they would be a good fit together. Who is Ed Reed? Reed is pretty much unanimously a Hall-of-Fame player and he’s […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 5

It’s now five weeks into the season, and the standings are getting rattled. New England and Seattle have finally lost. Denver, Kansas City and New Orleans continue to dominate.
