Patriots 2014 Defensive Backs Preview: Revis, Browner, McCourty, Dennard

Despite the loss of Aqib Talib, the Patriots secondary is their most improved unit going into the 2014 season. With Talib healthy last season, the Patriots secondary, overall, was a strong unit. As evidenced in their the AFC Championship Game loss to Denver, Talib’s injury forced everyone to slide “up” a slot, and in turn, […]

2014 NFL Draft Profile: Calvin Pryor, S, University of Louisville

Trying to guess who the New England Patriots will take in the draft is about as easy as trying to guess the winning Power Ball numbers. Ok, ok, you’d have a better chance with Power Ball, but that doesn’t make it any less fun to try and get inside the mind of Bill Belichick. While […]

Notes and Observations Week 17: Patriots Beat Bills; Clinch #2 Seed in the AFC

After everything that has happened to the Patriots this season, it is absolutely incredible they are the number two seed in the AFC. The offseason was highlighted by Tom Brady’s favorite receivers from the year before, but in the worst possible scenarios. Wes Welker went to Denver to catch pass from Brady’s rival Peyton Manning. […]

Notes and Observations Week 16: Patriots Blow Out Ravens 41-7; Clinch AFC East

The title is slightly misleading as the Patriots clinched the AFC East crown for the fifth straight season before they even took the field on Sunday.

Notes and Observations Week 14: Patriots Mount Another Improbable Comeback; Beat Browns 27-26

Sunday’s game was one of the more bittersweet experiences for fans of the Patriots. Down 26-14 with 2:39 left in the game, all hope was almost lost, fans made their way to the exits, and Tom Brady did what Tom Brady has done his whole career. With some help of a pass interference call, and […]

Week 8 Notes and Observations: Patriots Score 24 Unanswered Points to Beat Dolphins 27-17

It’s hard to justify a must win game in October, but this game was just that. After letting a win slip away against the Jets last week in overtime, a game against the division rival Dolphins became more important than usual. The Patriots needed this one to keep distance in the division as the Jets […]

Week 7 Notes and Observations: Patriots Let One Slip Away, Lose to Jets 30-27 in OT

We are all aware of the controversial call that ended up winning the game for the Jets. Yes, that was an awful call at a critical moment in the game, but you can’t allow the game to be in the referees’ hands. NFL officials, or officials in any sport for that matter, have shown that […]

Patriots-Buccaneers: The Good and the Bad

The Patriots strolled to another preseason victory Friday night against the Tamp Bay Buccaneers 25-21. Though, this win is probably no indication of the how the Week 3 regular season match-up between the two teams will go, since the Buccaneers were without their starting shut-down corner Darrelle Revis. This game did however provide many highs […]

Recapping the Weekend: Patriots Draft 7, Acquire Blount

The Patriots went into the 2013 Draft with just five picks, but raised that number to eight on Thursday by trading their first-rounder to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for four later selections. Bill Belichick largely addressed his team’s needs by taking two wide receivers and two defensive backs, but drafted just one defensive lineman, […]
