After having been seen leaving Sunday’s game with crutches and a protective walking boot, Julian Edelman saw his season officially come to an end when the New England Patriots placed the wide receiver and punt returner on injured reserve on Tuesday.

Tom Brady and the Patriots travel to Miami on Sunday for a showdown with the Dolphins, a game that could wrap up the AFC East for New England. On the surface, this would appear to be a classic trap game. With Houston (10-1, 1st in the AFC) and San Francisco (8-2-1, 1st in the NFC […]

The bye-week could not have come at a better time for the banged up New England Patriots. With injuries to Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Logan Mankins, Brandon Spikes, and a good amount of the secondary, a bye could be just what the doctor ordered for the second half of the season. The Patriots stand at […]

Humorist Dave Barry once wrote that Harvard University “for more than three centuries has produced graduates who, no matter what their philosophical differences, are all dedicated to the lofty goal of subtly letting you know that they went to Harvard.” Former Harvard Crimson and current Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick hasn’t needed to purse his […]
The Miami Dolphins narrowly avoided disaster Saturday against the New England Patriots. Somehow a group of talented, motivated football players broke into their locker room, knocked everyone out, stole their uniforms and took the field for kickoff. The “Dolphins” went into halftime up 17-0. Luckily, the true – and truly terrible – Dolphins regained consciousness […]
The New England Patriots took every punch the Miami Dolphins threw at them in the first half of Sunday afternoon’s game at Gillette.
