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.

PATS on the Back: Week 13 vs. New York Jets

“Outcoached.” “Outplayed.” “A total butt whooping.” Yup Rex, that about sums it up. How fun was Monday night’s 45-3 blowout win over the hated Jets? I mean really, with all the hype leading up to that game… the “game of the year,” as ESPN and the NFL was touting it… how flippin’ sweet was that […]

PATS on the Back: Week 8 vs. Minnesota

6-1, the best record in the NFL. Who would’ve believed that a team that lost their best cornerback (Leigh Bodden) and one of their most reliable defensive lineman (Ty Warren) in the preseason, then lost their third down back (Kevin Faulk) to season-ending injury, then traded away a former first rounder (Laurence Maroney) and a […]

Strong Running Game Leads Patriots Past Vikings; Favre Injured in Fourth

BenJarvus Green-Ellis leaped over the back of blocking guard Dan Connolly, tumbling head over heels. When he came down, the Patriots had a two-score lead with less than two minutes left in the game.

PATS on the Back – Week 7 vs. Chargers

A win is a win, and that’s what the New England Patriots have to take from Sunday’s 23-20 victory over the mysterious San Diego Chargers. Why mysterious? Because how does a team rank at the top of the NFL in total offense and total defense (based on yardage), and still have just a 2-5 record? […]
