In a nice shocker overnight, former Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib signed with the Denver Broncos to a 6-year, $57 million contract. The deal leaves the Patriots with Logan Ryan or the currently imprisoned Alfonzo Dennard at the top corner spot.
The New England Patriots and Denver Broncos will be competing this weekend in a high-stakes, win or go home game for the AFC Championship at Sports Authority Field at Mile High and the chance to represent the AFC in Super Bowl XLVIII.

After galloping over the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs to the tune of 166 yards rushing and four rushing touchdowns, LeGarrette Blount finds himself on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated issue. This comes with mixed feelings for Patriots fans. On one hand, it elicits that warm, fuzzy feeling […]
And so the chess match begins. The Denver Broncos lost starting cornerback Chris Harris for Sunday’s AFC Championship matchup when he was diagnosed with a torn ACL. He suffered the injury in the third quarter against the San Diego Chargers, and an MRI confirmed he tore the ACL in his left knee. Broncos brass wasted […]
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. These promotions of former Patriots coaches always makes me wonder how Bill Belichick reacts to his former coordinators becoming his equal (if there is such a thing with […]
This was the toughest decision of the Awards, between the Pats/Broncos, Bruins/Leafs and Red Sox championship clinchers among other choices that couldn’t all be included in the nomination phase. In the end, the Patriots showed the biggest grit and determination in a situation that was perhaps closer to impossible than any other game. Turning the […]
Just one week remains in the season, and plenty remains to be determined. The last Wildcard spot in each conference is up for grabs, as are all four NFC divisions. After being in contention for #1 for some time, the Saints could still miss the playoffs entirely. The Patriots could finish anywhere from #1 to […]
Just two weeks remain in the NFL season, and only four out of 12 teams have clinched a playoff spot; only the fourth-seeded Colts have clinched a division. While mathematical possibilities still remain, many teams are comfortable with a spot, but seeding remains a hotly contested issue, especially with Denver losing and New Orleans and […]
Just three games remain in the schedule, and more teams are clinching spots. A record number of ACL tears for a season continues to grow as well, which is quite unfortunate for everyone involved, and shakes things up greatly for the teams that were counting on them. Four of the divisions are led by a […]
Just a month remains in the season, yet only the 11-1 Seahawks have even clinched a spot. Other races are getting closer, particularly the Wildcard race in the AFC, where nearly everyone is still alive. And while the 49ers continue to hold onto a spot, several teams are right on their heels as well. Just […]
Each team has now played 11 games, and the races for positioning are as hot as ever, especially with a six-way tie for the last spot in the AFC (and three others one game behind). New England made things especially interesting by knocking off Denver. New Orleans, Carolina and Seattle are all continuing their winning […]
The most anticipated game of the year for the Patriots has finally arrived! The 9-1 Denver Broncos will be coming to face the 7-3 New England Patriots. Two of the top AFC teams will be facing off in this epic match-up and the Brady v. Manning rivalry will once again be renewed. Manning will be […]
In case you missed it, ESPN’s Sport Science studied the final play between the New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football to definitively answer the question everyone was asking: could Rob Gronkowski have caught that pass?
With the season rapidly approaching its end, teams are scrambling for position, especially in the tightened up Wildcard races. Even Buffalo (4-7), for example, is only 1.5 games back. The Chiefs, Broncos and Seahawks are still the class of the NFL, but for other seeds, things are still up in the air. Now that Tampa […]
Just under two months remain in the season. All teams have won a game now, though Kansas City has yet to lose. Ed Reed has been waived by the Texans. Carolina has been making noise. Detroit is in sole possession of the NFC North late in the season for the first time in some time. […]
