If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 10

With less than two months to go now, the landscape has changed pretty nicely. The Patriots went from contenders to jokes, to contenders again with a defeat of Pittsburgh. Oakland is now in the playoff situation again, somehow. The Cowboys’ coaching change helped them, and hurt the Giants. The Falcons and Jets are back in […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 9

Things have suddenly gotten interesting. The Patriots are no longer the best team around, and the Rams are doing something right. And remember the Saints’ poor start? They’re now half a game out of the best record in the league. Ditto for the packers, and just one game back for the Colts. And three games […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 8

How about this for an ultimate rematch three years in the making. We all remember the day the undefeated season died, when the Giants beat the Patriots in a game in which New England could have tried harder. But they’re the best team in the league again this year, even without Randy Moss. It remains […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 7

Something’s going on in the NFL. The AFC West is completely flopped from last season, New Orleans lost at home to Cleveland, and the Cowboys and Vikings are still not too good, and Green Bay is borderline. At least we still have one winless team in Buffalo to root for to fail. The Colts are […]

Gostkowski Ties Game in Fourth, Wins it in Overtime

Heading into Sunday’s game in Foxboro, Stephen Gostkowski had never missed in the fourth quarter when the Patriots were either tied or behind. After the game ended, his streak remained intact. Gostkowski’s late game field goals capped a 10-point comeback by the New England Patriots, who beat the Baltimore Ravens 23-20 in overtime. Gostkowski hit […]

Patriots Keys to Victory: Week 6 vs. Ravens

There was a plethora of news coming out of Foxboro during the Patriots’ (3-1) bye week—beginning with the trading of Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings, and ending with the re-acquisition of Deion Branch from the Seattle Seahawks. There are certainly a lot of question marks for the Pats heading into their Week 6 show […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 5

As quickly as Week 5, no more unbeaten teams are left. Though there are three winless teams, and surprisingly, none of them are the Lions or Rams. The Chiefs defense looked pretty good, but after losing several gambles and not scoring a touchdown against the Colts, how long can the Chiefs keep it up? And […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 4

Who could have ever predicted that the Chiefs would be the last unbeaten team left? Or that the Colts wouldn’t be in the picture at all? Or even in 3rd place in their division for that matter? The Rams have an actual winning streak in place, too. The NFL has been turned upside down for […]

2010 NFL Predictions: AFC North

No one really knows what to expect from the Cincinnati Bengals or the Pittsburgh Steelers.  The former has a lot of potential and an equal number of question marks, and the latter is coming off its biggest disappointment in the decade amidst rape allegations and a slap-on-the-wrist suspension for its quarterback. At least we can rely on […]

AFC North Fantasy Preview

Into the second week of August we go, where NFL teams will all finally see action this coming weekend to open their preseason slate of meaningless games. We got our first taste of football season with Sunday night’s Hall of Fame game, which featured the Dallas Cowboys topping the AFC North’s defending divisional champs, the […]

Patriots Release Adalius Thomas

The New England Patriots cut linebacker Adalius Thomas on Monday, and for most Patriot’s fans one word sums up his departure: finally. Or maybe one phrase: It’s about [insert expletive] time! Monday’s releasing of Thomas came as little surprise to many, and ended a three-year tenure that can only be described as a marriage from […]

NFL Free Agency is Anyone’s Game

This has been some NFL offseason. Well, not quite for Patriots fans. I mean, solving the Vince Wilfork issue was a big accomplishment, as they got their man in the middle, but now need to look for some complementary pieces. They might have missed out on some big name players, but there are more fish […]

Stallworth Signs with Ravens

The wide receive carousel around the NFL has begun as former Patriots wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth has agreed to a one-year deal with the Ravens.  Stallworth’s base salary will be $900,000, with another $300,000 worth of incentives. The move comes after a tumultous month which has seen Stallworth be reinstated after serving jail time only […]

NFL Playoff Picture: Divisional Round

Well, the Patriots might be out of the running for a Super Bowl appearance, but there are still eight other teams going strong. Four teams in each conference will be matched up this weekend to see if they have what it takes to get to their championship game. Expect everything, including the kitchen sink, being […]

Patriots Report Card: Week 18

Quarterback: B- If you told me Tom Brady had 42 attempts in a game, I’d tell you he easily threw for over 300 yards. And if you then told me he threw for 200 yards, I’d be surprised.  But 154 yards? On 42 attempts? You’re kidding, right? No, unfortunately not. This is what happened on […]
