Three Patriots Players Make the NFL’s List of Top 100 Players

The New England Patriots have one of the most prolific duos in NFL history. Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, to be specific. The pair has combined for 65 touchdowns throughout the seven years Gronkowski has been in the league, titanic numbers for two players that were not drafted in the first round. Compare those 65 […]

ESPN’s Power Rankings Listing Patriots as #1 is Very Surprising

Earlier this week, ESPN released their NFL Power Rankings for the upcoming 2016-2017 NFL season. And guess who they ranked number one? Yes, our New England Patriots. I was actually blown away when I saw this for a couple reasons. One being that ESPN has constantly covered everything and anything bad they hear happening with […]

Gronkowski, Chris Harris Jr Fuel AFC Championship Fire

Notes and Observations Week 14: Patriots Take Control of The AFC, Defeat Texans 27-6

After losing two games in a row you knew there was no way the Patriots were going to lose Sunday against the Texans. With Belichick and Tom Brady involved the Patriots haven’t lost more than two games in a row since 2002. Offensively the team is still banged up but the return of Rob Gronkowski made […]

Notes and Observations Week 13: Patriots Embarrass Themselves at Home, Lose to Eagles 35-28

Losing twice in a row is not something we are accustomed to as fans of the New England Patriots. Since Bill Belichick has been the coach of the team they’ve only lost two games in a row 11 times, including Sunday’s game. It’s a luxury most teams in the NFL have not been afforded. When […]

Patriots Likely To get Collins, Amendola Back Today

The Patriots, who have suffered several key injuries over the past month, are likely going to welcome some reinforcements back today. Both wide receiver Danny Amendola and linebacker Jamie Collins are both expected back today, providing a boost to their respective units. Collins came down with an illness before the team’s game against the Redskins […]

Notes and Observations Week 12: Patriots Lose 1st Game in Frustrating Fashion; Broncos Win in OT 30-24

Now that we’ve all had a full 24 hours to digest the frustrating monstrosity that was Sunday Night Football, we can rationally examine the remains. While it was fun to imagine this team really sticking it to the whole league and going 16-0 everyone knew just how hard that task would be. Every team in the […]

Undefeated Mirage Gives Way to Reality of Flawed Patriots Team in OT Loss to Broncos

It was all a mirage. All the talk about another undefeated season for the New England Patriots was nothing more than an illusion propped up by a zero in the loss column, at least until Brock Osweiler and the Denver Broncos officially put an end to what was all but an impossibility anyway with a […]

Notes and Observations Week 11: Defense Leads Battered Patriots to Victory Over Bills 20-13

Monday night was far from pretty but the Patriots stand at 10-0 and could officially clinch the AFC East next week. With the offense devastated by injuries, the defense played some of its best football of the season. The offense is clearly dealing with communication and trust issues with all the new pieces being plugged […]

Patriots and Bills Set To Do Battle on Monday Night Football

The Patriots take on the Bills at Gillette Stadium for a Monday Night Football match up that is sure to have plenty of fireworks. The Patriots have dominated the Bills for the entire Brady-Belichick era with the Pats going 26-3 since 2001. However Buffalo is reinvigorated with new head coach Rex Ryan, a rival to the […]

Julian Edelman Breaks Foot, Return This Season Questionable

In the Sunday afternoon thriller at Metlife Stadium where the New York Giants hosted the New England Patriots, fans for both teams were on the edge of their seats. The Patriots ultimately defeated the Giants 27-26 on a last second, 54-yard field goal off the foot of Stephen Gostkowski. Tom Brady led the Pats into […]

Notes and Observations Week 10: Gostkowski’s Game-Winning Field Goal Sends Patriots Past Giants 27-26

There is nothing quite like a good old fashioned nail biter to get the blood pumping on a Sunday afternoon in November. The Giants have been the one team to have the Patriots figured out. For most of the game on Sunday it appeared like it was going to be more of the same. We […]

Notes and Observations, Week 9: Patriots Beat Redskins 27-10 to go 8-0 for 2nd Time in Team History

Last week I talked about how spoiled we are in New England basically being able to pencil the Patriots into the AFC Championship every year. This week was another prime example of just how good we have it here. The Patriots handled the Redskins all game and the win was never in doubt. Tom Brady […]
