Monday night was far from pretty but the Patriots stand at 10-0 and could officially clinch the AFC East next week. With the offense devastated by injuries, the defense played some of its best football of the season. The offense is clearly dealing with communication and trust issues with all the new pieces being plugged […]
Of all the AFC East opponents the Jets have been the one to consistently play the Patriots close. With a revamped defense and new head coach Todd Bowles, there were people who thought this was the year they overtake the Patriots in the East. Once again they played competitive football throughout the game and kept […]
We weren’t treated to the incredible blow out we were all pining for but the way this one went was actually more satisfying. For two and a half quarters the Colts kept it interesting with the help of Mike Adams’ pick-6 off the tipped pass from Julian Edelman. Gronk was virtually non-existent with the exception […]
Just about every other team in the league would have taken yesterday’s game for what it was at face value. A 30-6 victory on the road after a bye week. In New England, the team and the fans could only see the things that they could improve on next week. The defense played exactly how […]
Just like every year the hype starts up around the other teams in the AFC East with all the geniuses at ESPN claiming this is the year the Patriots get dethroned. With Rex Ryan taking over as head coach of the Buffalo Bills the “experts” laid on the hype thick and often. Rex did what […]
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Football has returned and our defending champion New England Patriots came out with fire on banner night. Tom Brady came out to an incredible ovation as was expected after the way he was treated for the past eight months. The “Where is Roger” chants were perfect and […]
The Patriots picked up the fifth year options for both linebacker Dont’a Hightower and defensive end Chandler Jones on Thursday. The options will keep both players with the team through 2016. Jones and Hightower were both key pieces of the 2014 Patriots defense that helped guide the team to a Super Bowl win. Both players […]
Current Personnel: Jerod Mayo, Dont’a Hightower, Jamie Collins, Chris White, Darius Fleming Need Level: Low Possible Fits: Trey Flowers (Arkansas), Jordan Hicks (Texas), Ramik Wilson (Georgia), Taiwan Jones (MSU) The Patriots are in a good spot at linebacker.
Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower will be sidelined for the next six to seven months due to surgery that repaired a torn labrum in February. Hightower sustained the injury during the 2014 season and played with it throughout the playoffs and Super Bowl. Hightower was coming off arguably his best season with the team in which […]
Until Sunday night, the Patriots had never won in Lucas Oil stadium. It stood as the place where Ahmad Bradshaw reluctantly scored a Super Bowl winning touchdown, and of course the infamous “4th and 2″ play. Last night the Patriots once again asserted their dominance in the AFC. In the process they took another one […]
This was the game everyone had marked on their calendars. There’s the obvious Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning rivalry, but this was more than that. Sunday was a chance to show everyone how good the Patriots truly are, and they did not disappoint. While Tom Brady has put together an impressive five game stretch of […]
It may not be Vincent Jackson, but hey, it’s a start. The New England Patriots sent a sixth round pick to the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday in exchange for linebacker Akeem Ayers and a seventh round selection in the NFL draft. The deal is pending a physical.
Well that was a lot harder than it had to be. Thursday night games all season have been blowouts by the home team. Of course when the Patriots play the Jets, it turns into the closest game both teams played all season and was decided by a last second blocked field goal. The defense looked […]
Every year the “experts” talk about how the Bills are right putting it together and are going to challenge the Patriots for the division. They create a little buzz with a few early wins and Chris Berman constantly reminds us that “nobody circles the wagon like the Buffalo Bills. No matter all the hype they’re still […]
When the Patriots face the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night, they will face one of the most potent rush offenses in the NFL. In a Monday night game on the road it will be important for the Patriots to set the physical tone on both sides of the ball. Despite the Chiefs being 1-2, […]
