Five Easy Steps to Enjoying the Patriots-Ravens Game

Of course the Patriots drew the toughest possible matchup in the first round according to my own list. You didn’t think I would read anyone else’s work did you? On top of that, Wes Welker injures himself (yes you read that right) and possibly takes himself out for not only the playoffs, but the entire […]

Patriots-Ravens: Previewing the First Playoff Meeting

They worked all season to get to this point. Now, the New England Patriots will have to best a perennial defensive power house in the Baltimore Ravens. It is one of the four rematches from the regular season being played this weekend. The Patriots will hope for a repeat of the 27-21 win during Week […]

Patriots Report Card: Week 17

Quarterback: C I was tempted to cut Tom Brady some slack and give him an “Incomplete” on his report card this week, but the Patriots quarterback played most of the game on Sunday. He was replaced by rookie Brian Hoyer (Michigan State) in the second quarter, and on the Patriots’ last drive.  Brady’s stat line was […]

PATS on the Back: Patriots-Texans, Week 17

The Patriots will limp into the playoffs next weekend, after losing not only Sunday’s game to the Texans, but also losing their Pro Bowl receiver, Wes Welker. As you all know by now, Welker was lost on just the third offensive play of the game, as his left knee buckled in the Reliant Stadium turf. […]

Patriots Report Card: Week 15

Quarterback: C+ Statistically, Tom Brady had perhaps his worst game of the 2009 season. Brady completed 11 of 23 passes for 115 yards in the Patriots 17-10 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.  Brady also threw one touchdown to Randy Moss and one interception to Bills linebacker Paul Posluszny. Brady’s 13-yard touchdown pass to […]

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 […]

Patriots Give Colts Early Christmas Present

The title says it all; with the game in hand, the Patriots gave it away to their arch rival Colts, who took the game 35-34 in the closing seconds. It started out punch for punch, with the Colts getting the ball to start, and each team going three and out. The Colts struck first with […]

Patriots First in AFC East, Brady is Back…Or Is He?

Now that’s more like it! The Patriots absolutely destroyed the lifeless Tennessee Titans by the score of 59-0 Sunday afternoon. It was as one-sided a football game can get, but I would take a 59-point blow out over a nail biter any day of the week. There is something about being able to relax and […]

Patriots-Falcons Injury Report: Moss, Welker Questionable

The Patriots may be starting Joey Galloway and Sam Aiken at wide receiver on Sunday, and that’s obviously not a good thing. Randy Moss, Wes Welker, and Julian Edleman are all listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. It’s likely that at least two of the three will play, but it’s still concerning. […]

TGIF: Week 3 Sleeper Picks

Whether you have players who are playing so badly that you need to bench them *cough* Eddie Royal *cough*, or if you have been decimated by injuries, there is always the need to scour the free agent market and find a fill-in player for your weekly matchup. Granted, there is a reason that these guys […]

Patriots-Jets, Week 2: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Week 2 has come and gone and we’re left with a dissatisfied feeling in our mouths. For the second straight week, the Patriots have looked average, but this time their average play led to a Patriots loss courtesy of the New York Jets and their stingy defense. Although it’s tough to pinpoint positives from this […]

PATS on the Back: Patriots vs. Jets, Week 2

The Patriots’ performance during Sunday’s frustrating 16-9 loss to the Jets makes this positive-outlook article all the more tougher to write. We are now through two weeks of the NFL’s regular season, and one could argue that New England is lucky just to be at 1-1. LUCKY, to be at 1-1. Can you imagine that? […]

Who is Julian Edelman?

Rookie Julian Edelman scored his first professional touchdown on a 75-yard punt return in the second quarter, a TD that proved decisive in the Patriots 27-25 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Thursday night’s preseason opener. Edelman, listed as a wide receiver on the Patriots roster, was drafted in the seventh round out of Kent […]

Brady Impressive in Patriots’ 27-25 Win

All eyes were on Tom Brady for his first in-game action since tearing his ACL in Week 1 last season. Facing the Eagles in the Patriots’ first game of the preseason, Brady completed 10-15 passes for 100 yards and two touchdowns. He also threw an interception, but was very effective while playing most of the […]
