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 […]

Where Are They Now: Eugene Wilson, CB, Illinois

Heading into the 2003 season, the Patriots signed veteran safety Rodney Harrison to play along side one of the league’s best in Lawyer Milloy. When Milloy wouldn’t restructure his contract, the Patriots released the Pro-Bowler just five days before the season. Milloy joined AFC east foe Buffalo. The immediate result? A 31-0 thrashing from the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 8

How about this for an ultimate rematch three years in the making. We all remember the day the undefeated season died, when the Giants beat the Patriots in a game in which New England could have tried harder. But they’re the best team in the league again this year, even without Randy Moss. It remains […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 7

Something’s going on in the NFL. The AFC West is completely flopped from last season, New Orleans lost at home to Cleveland, and the Cowboys and Vikings are still not too good, and Green Bay is borderline. At least we still have one winless team in Buffalo to root for to fail. The Colts are […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 5

As quickly as Week 5, no more unbeaten teams are left. Though there are three winless teams, and surprisingly, none of them are the Lions or Rams.

2010 NFL Predictions: NFC South

NFC South Fantasy Preview

The NFC South is a story of two “haves” and two “have-nots.” The ultimate “have” are the reigning Super Bowl champs, the New Orleans Saints. From top to bottom, on both sides of the ball, the Saints are stacked with stars that will no doubt have New Orleans thinking repeat, all season long. From there, […]

PATS on the Back: Patriots vs. Bucs, Week 7

It can’t be considered “mistake-free football” for the Pats in Sunday’s 35-7 win over Tampa Bay, but New England’s play was still far superior compared to the listless performance from the Bucs, earning New England their first road win of the season. In front of 84,000+ fans at Wembley Stadium in England, the Patriots were […]

Pats Cross the Pond and Bombard the Bucs

Now this is more like it. After destroying the Titans in the year’s first snow bowl, the Patriots headed to London and dismantled another winless team, Tampa Bay, 35-7.
