Before Sunday’s New England Patriots-Baltimore Ravens game, noted actor (also Ravens linebacker) Ray Lewis said, “Revenge is a dish best served cold.

New England Patriots Report Card: Super Bowl XLVI

Well… crap. Just like four years ago, the New England Patriots came up just a couple plays short of beating the New York Giants and claiming their fourth Lombardi Trophy Sunday in Super Bowl XLVI.

Since Corey Dillon’s retirement after the 2006 season, the Patriots have adopted an unofficial implementation of running back-by-committee that has supported some of the most potent and productive offenses that the NFL has seen.

Coming Up Short: Woodhead Out of Running for Madden ’12 Cover

It would have been a supersized upset if New England Patriots runningback Danny Woodhead could have beaten out Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the “Madden ’12″ cover vote. Unfortunately, the mountain was too high to climb for Woodhead. Rodgers earned 56% of the voting, thus eliminating the Pats RB from the competition. The pint-sized Patriot […]

Video: Joe Theismann Calls Patriots RB Danny Woodcock on NFL Network

As part of probably the worst broadcast team in professional sports during NFL Network broadcasts, Joe Theismann says some pretty stupid and worthless things.

The Patriots: A Hornets Nest the Jets Poke at Own Peril

Ever since Monday, we’ve all been subject to what the media calls the “War of Words” between the New York Jets and the New England Patriots. But is it really a war if one side attacks and the other side doesn’t respond? Perhaps this should be re-named the “Bay of Pigs Invasion of Words,” or […]

BenJarvus, Brady, Brian, Brandon, Broken Records: Pats Beat Dolphins with Ease

Time and time again, Bill Belichick has shown that he possesses one of the greatest minds in NFL history.

Patriots Defense Forces Seven Bills Turnovers, Clinch Division and Home-Field in Win

The New England Patriots, able to clinch the AFC East, a first-round bye and home-field throughout the playoffs with a win or New York Jets loss, could not have asked for a better opponent than the Buffalo Bills.
