Former Patriots WR Deion Branch Signs with Colts

Um, what the hell, Anthony Deion Branch? Yes, this warrants me using your full name, like a scolding mother after you broke a flower vase. I thought we had a deal.

Former Patriots Coordinator Bill O’Brien Reportedly Next Head Coach of Texans

ESPN is reporting that former Patriots offensive coordinator and current Penn State coach Bill O’Brien is going to become the next head coach of the Houston Texans.

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.

It’s not even halftime of their game against the Baltimore Ravens, but the New England Patriots have already clinched their fifth straight AFC East division title.

No Rob Gronkowski, No Problem for Patriots Moving Forward

So far in the 2013 season, Rob Gronkowski has missed seven games and he has played in seven games. The Patriots record with Gronkowski is 5-2 and without him is 5-2.
