Patriots and Jets: Two Teams Heading in Oppositte Directions

January 2011. The New York Jets traveled to Foxboro to face the red-hot New England Patriots in a divisional round playoff game.

Notes and Observations Week 15: Patriots Blow Out Dolphins 41-13; Clinch AFC East

It never gets old winning the AFC East. At the start of every year, we have to listen to all the “experts” talk about how the Bills, Dolphins, and Jets are all primed to challenge the Patriots for the division crown. Granted the Bills actually have an impressive defense, and if they only had a […]

Back in Blount: Patriots Sign LeGarrette Blount

Cue up the AC/DC: The New England Patriots are back in Blount. Even having galloped over the Indianapolis Colts in last year’s playoffs, which earned him a Sports Illustrated cover with his record setting postseason performance, running back LeGarrette Blount left the Patriots this past offseason to sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers. But after departing from […]

Notes and Observations Week 8: Brady, Gronk Dominate Bears in 51-23 Patriots Win

Games like Sunday against the Bears highlight just how different the Patriots are than the rest of the NFL.

Well, that was close. The New England Patriots literally hung on by the tips of their fingers, blocking a last gasp 58-yard field goal attempt by the New York Jets to escape with a 27-25 win at home on Thursday Night Football.

Patriots Preview: Why I Wish New England Wasn’t Playing the Bengals in Prime Time (Or At All, Really)

Normally when the New England Patriots play in prime time, I get all revved up for a big game on the national stage.Living in New York City, it means I get to watch the game in the quiet of my own apartment, which I can shatter with epithets and flying objects or (more ideally) overwrought […]

What to Expect From the Return of Brandon Browner

Brandon Browner could see his first action as a Patriot this weekend after completing a four game suspension for a substance abuse violation.  At 6’4” and 221 pounds, Browner is hands down the biggest cornerback on the Patriots roster. He is also a strong, physical corner who produced at a high level while playing alongside […]

Patriot Problems: What Has Caused Poor Start to 2014 and What Can be Done to Fix It

The New England Patriots are sitting at 2-2 following a blowout, 41-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night.

Betting on Monday Night Football? In New England we trust

I was out of commission this past Sunday, but I saved my lone and best bet of the week for last. Tonight, the New England Patriots will be traveling to play at a hostile environment against the Kansas City Chiefs, and I believe the Pats at -3 are a steal. I believe this line should […]

Week 2 Preview: Patriots at Vikings, Sept. 14, 2014

Panic in the streets. Last place. No offensive line. Overrated defense. Time for everyone to take a deep breath. The Patriots enter this weekends game in Minnesota with a chance to quell some of the panic going on in New England. Sometimes, it must be nice being a fan of a mediocre team, where every […]

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was indicted in Texas on Friday for reckless or negligent injury to a child, and has a warrant out for his arrest. As a result, the Vikings have deactivated him for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. […]

Former Patriot WR Welker Suspended 4 Games for Doing Molly?

When advertisements asked me “Are you ready for some football?”, I thought I could answer with an unequivocal and resounding “YES!” Turns out I was wrong, because I was not mentally prepared for the NFL news that broke on Tuesday. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker will be suspended four games […]
