PATS on the Back: Week 10 vs. Steelers

What a difference a week makes. Just seven days previously, the Patriots completely laid an egg in Cleveland, getting their butts handed to them in their worst loss in a real long time.

PATS on the Back – Patriots vs. Bills, Week 15

It wasn’t overly exciting. It wasn’t overly pretty. And it wasn’t overly convincing. But it was exactly what the Patriots needed on Sunday. A win.

Patriots Seek Revenge Against Jets

Fourth and two. With Bill Belichick deciding to risk it last week, Patriots fans were left with a bitter taste in their mouth.

Rodney Pokes Fun at Brady, Pats Defense Stepping Up

The Patriots are officially back. Tom Brady is back to making the throws he needs to make. The offense is back to being able to do enough to win games. The defense is back to being that opportune Belichick defense that will let up yards, but will make the stops when they are needed. It’s […]

PATS on the Back – Week 4

Two very evenly matched teams faced each other at Gillette Stadium on Sunday afternoon, and on this given Sunday, the New England Patriots were able to do just enough to edge the very talented Baltimore Ravens squad, 27-21. Something tells me this won’t be the last we hear from the Ravens, as both teams look […]
