2014 NFL Betting Tips: Week 5

Well my so called “Lock” of last week could not have been any further from the truth, as The New England Patriots were thoroughly embarrassed by the Kansas City Chiefs 41-14 on Monday Night Football. I picked the Pats to win 30-21 on Monday, and my record is 6-7 overall. I am confident in bouncing […]

Report: Patriots Trade Logan Mankins to Tampa Bay

Reports are coming in that the Patriots have agreed to send guard Logan Mankins to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for tight end Tim Wright and a draft pick. This trade certainly comes as a shock to Patriot fans. Most around the team believed that this would be Mankins’ final season with the team, due to […]

Business as Usual: Top Scout Leaves Patriots

Many New England Patriots fans were left scratching their collective heads following the 2014 NFL draft. Why didn’t the Patriots draft a tight end? Why did they draft a quarterback in the second round? Why did they draft so many offensive linemen? Gasoline was only added to the fire of burning questions later in the […]

Patriots Sign Revis for One-Year, $12M

The pipe dream has come true. The New England Patriots wasted no time after Darrelle Revis was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Wednesday afternoon, swooping in to sign the former Jets cornerback to a one-year, $12 million contract. No, seriously: CB Darrelle Revis and the New England Patriots have reached agreement on a […]

I Dream of Revis: Former Jets CB to Patriots?

The rumors have been swirling for a while now: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are getting rid of cornerback Darrelle Revis, and the New England Patriots are interested in taking him off their hands. I’ve tried laughing it off as another of those ridiculous offseason “stories” that have no real journalistic basis. I didn’t want to […]

Week 3 Notes and Observations: Offense Finally Clicks, Patriots Beat Buccaneers 23-3

This was the game that everyone has been hoping to see. The defense continued to show how good they really are, and the offense finally found some type of rhythm to give the doubters something to be happy about. No one is picking the Buccaneers to win any Super Bowls anytime soon, but a win […]

Patriots Come Alive After Slow Start To Go 3-0

Once again, it started out looking like a third ugly game in a row to start the season. New England couldn’t get things done, but fortunately for them, neither did the Buccaneers. The second quarter allowed the Patriots to run up ground which Tampa Bay couldn’t make up. In the end, New England walked away […]

Fantasy Football Help: Favorable Week 1 Matchups

During the season I will be doing a weekly column on players to add from the waiver wire and bye-week replacement options. Since there are no byes for a few weeks, we’ll look at some players with favorable Week 1 matchups to help you with start/sit decisions. This will usually feature players who are not […]

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 […]

Tom Brady Leaves Practice With Apparent Knee Injury

In a scary sight for Patriot fans Wednesday afternoon, quarterback Tom Brady was forced to leave practice early with what appeared to be a left knee injury. Pro Football Talk later reported Brady suffered a minor knee sprain and he will be day-to-day. Watch video of the knee injury. On what was a beautiful day […]

Patriots, Aqib Talib Reach One-Year, $5M Agreement

The New England Patriots carried their Friday frenzy of free agent signings into Saturday, reportedly reaching a one-year, $5 million agreement with cornerback Aqib Talib, according to WEEI’s Christopher Price. (The report came via ESPN’s Adam Schefter, unsurprisingly, who is apparently “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” of NFL free agency news in terms of […]

Patriots Acquire Aqib Talib from the Buccaneers

The trade deadline was extended to Thursday (today) and the Patriots made a move in an attempt to plug the glaring hole that is their secondary. They traded their 2013 4th round pick in exchange for Buccaneers’ cornerback Aqib Talib and a 7th round pick.  Talib has had a few off the field problems in his […]

Patriots to Return to London Next Season to Face Rams

Let’s hope the British don’t have any leftover grudges from the Revolutionary War, because the Patriots are scheduled to return to London next season for the NFL’s annual trip across the pond. On Oct. 28, the New England Patriots will square off against the St. Louis Rams at 1:00 p.m. EST in Wembley Stadium to […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 4

We’re already through a quarter of the NFL season, and we’ve already seen a lot of surprises. Some people though Detroit would be good, but I don’t think anyone thought they’d be 4-0 good. Buffalo finally knocked off New England. Philadelphia has been quite lackluster. Tampa’s holding their own in the ultra competitive NFC South. […]

Patriots’ Starters Cruise in 31-14 Win Over Tampa

The New England Patriots continued to look impressive in this 2011 preseason, easily dispatching the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-14 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. The team jumped out to an early 21-0 first-quarter lead, reaching the endzone on each of the offense’s first three possessions. The defense matched the effort, sacking Tampa starting […]
