Patriots Keys to Victory: Week 9 vs. Browns

Thanks to a 28-18 victory over the Minnesota Vikings, the New England Patriots (6-1) own the best record in the NFL heading into their game with the Cleveland Browns (2-5) this Sunday. At first glance, this looks like an easy matchup for the Patriots. The Browns are currently tied for last place in the AFC […]

NFL Releases Video Regarding Illegal Hits; Goes Power Hungry

There were quite a few helmet hits this past week in the No Fun League, which is truly living up to that moniker. In response to hits they deem illegal, the NFL has released a 4:02 video to all NFL teams with instructions to play by the rules. The problem is, what are the rules […]

NFL, Media Vilifying Meriweather, Robinson, Harrison Over Concussions

Enough is enough. After an NFL weekend that featured an unusually high number of concussions, talking heads and media types have beaten the story into the ground, and managed to vilify a few players in the process. There is no question the hit by Brandon Meriweather was illegal and has no place on the football […]

PATS on the Back – Week 6 vs. Baltimore

In arguably their biggest regular season win in a few years, the Patriots defied the odds on Sunday, beating a very good Baltimore Ravens team, 23-20, in an overtime thriller that we’ll be talking about for a while. The Pats faced a ten-point deficit early in the fourth quarter, after a Billy Cundiff field goal […]

Patriots 2010 Preview: The Defensive Backs

The New England defense was not one of the NFL’s elite last season. They were mediocre on both sides of the ball, but did show signs of life from time to time, especially with the defensive backs. There was no star in the backfield. No single guy that served as a leader. Just a bunch […]

PATS on the Back – 2009

And just like that, another Patriots season is in the books, sooner than many expected. At the beginning of the 2009 season, there were several pundits that were predicting the Pats as Super Bowl XLIV champs. But a “4th and 2,” a Welker injury, and a complete embarrassment in the wild card round later, New […]

Patriots Report Card: Week 16

Quarterback: A+ Tom Brady returned to his ’07 form against the Jaguars on Sunday, completing 23/26 passes for 267 yards and four touchdowns.  Brady played an almost perfect game on Sunday, as his 149.0 quarterback rating would indicate. He threw three touchdown passes to Randy Moss, and another to tight end Chris Baker.  Brady continued […]

PATS on the Back: Week 16

In what was clearly their best post-bye week performance of the year, the New England Patriots were able to convincingly top the playoff hopeful Jacksonville Jaguars at Gillette Stadium Sunday, in a game that was over nearly before it ever begun. The Pats ran all over the Jags, and then ran some more, and then […]

Patriots: Elite No More?

Jimmy Johnson said it best on FOX Pregame Show. It’s weird that New England isn’t saying they’re in a rebuilding season. Many would look at their past dealings, especially trading Richard Seymour for a 2011 first round pick, and say they are easily rebuilding for the future. Still, by admitting that they are looking into […]

Five Reasons I Would Not Want to be Mark Sanchez on Sunday

Jets rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez has the unenviable task of trying to beat the New England Patriots in Foxboro this weekend.  I use the word unenviable because I believe this match-up has all the makings of becoming a repeat of the 59-0 beat-down the Patriots laid on the Tennessee Titans in Week 6.  The Jets […]

PATS on the Back: Patriots vs. Bucs, Week 7

It can’t be considered “mistake-free football” for the Pats in Sunday’s 35-7 win over Tampa Bay, but New England’s play was still far superior compared to the listless performance from the Bucs, earning New England their first road win of the season. In front of 84,000+ fans at Wembley Stadium in England, the Patriots were […]

Pats Cross the Pond and Bombard the Bucs

Now this is more like it. After destroying the Titans in the year’s first snow bowl, the Patriots headed to London and dismantled another winless team, Tampa Bay, 35-7. The Pats wasted little time doing anything, when Brandon Meriweather intercepted a pass and ran it back 39 yards for a touchdown, on just the fifth […]

Patriots Welcome Winless Titans to Gilette

Tennessee Titans (0-5) at New England Patriots (3-2) Time: 4:15 EST Where: Gillettle Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts TV: CBS Radio: 98.5 FM – The Sports Hub The Patriots are coming off a disappointing loss to the Broncos.

Patriots Gets Ready For Perfect Broncos

There were the 1-0 Jets, then the 2-0 Falcons, and the 3-0 Ravens, and now the Patriots will get ready for the surprise 4-0 Denver Broncos. New England is riding a two-game win streak, following impressive wins over Atlanta and Baltimore. Now, they will have to survive a Broncos team with a top ranked defense […]

PATS on the Back – Week 4

Two very evenly matched teams faced each other at Gillette Stadium on Sunday afternoon, and on this given Sunday, the New England Patriots were able to do just enough to edge the very talented Baltimore Ravens squad, 27-21. Something tells me this won’t be the last we hear from the Ravens, as both teams look […]
