Should We Be Concerned About the Offense’s Slow Starts?

Rick: For me, there’s not that much concern because unlike the Broncos, New England has shown the ability to turn the switch on at any time like they did in the third quarter against the Dolphins last week. The offensive line’s struggles are the most alarming because while Brady isn’t getting sacked, he is being pressured […]

Run The East: Week 15 Risers and Fallers

After twenty seasons of following the Patriots, I finally made it to a home game.   I had traveled the Atlantic to see the team play in England, but until today I had never seen them play in New England.  I had initially planned on heading to Foxboro earlier in the season when the weather […]

Who Will Win the AFC North?

Kyle: I think Ravens will win the North, by virtue of having the easiest overall schedule of the four teams in that division. The best thing about them getting in the playoffs is that their secondary is so beaten up with injuries, that my usual fear of them is almost completely gone. Pittsburgh can’t stop anybody […]

Do the Patriots Need Home Field Advantage to Reach the Super Bowl?

Rick: The Patriots don’t need home field advantage, but it would be a great thing to have. If Denver played New England in Foxboro, then the Patriots have a great chance in Foxboro because Peyton struggles in the cold and hasn’t been the same quarterback over the last six quarters of football. Denver has gone to […]

Preview: Patriots vs. Dolphins

The New England Patriots (10-3) took one step closer to claiming home field advantage in the AFC Playoffs. After a 23-14 win over the San Diego Chargers last Sunday night, New England now only has three games left in their season, all against the AFC East. The defense stole the show against the Chargers, holding […]

What Was Your Biggest Take Away from Sunday’s Game?

Raj: My biggest take away from last Sunday’s game is that the New England defense is for real and can be relied upon. Most of the years after the Patriots last won a Super Bowl, they were still a solid team offensively, but the defense was less than stellar. But because the Patriots have Brady, the […]

Should Brandon Browner Have Been Flagged for His Big Hit on Ladarius Green?

Kyle: The last time I googled it, the NFL was still a tackle football league, so the answer is no. Browner made a distinct effort to use his shoulder and was penalized by the fact that he is 6’4″ tall. What the NFL should do is adopt a modified version of the NCAA’s targeting rule. When […]

Victory in Adversity: Week 14 Risers and Fallers

Last week, the Patriots allowed the Green Bay Packers to dictate the way they played the football game.  The Packers controlled the time of possession heavily.  The Patriots abandoned their run game early and became one dimensional.   The New England defense refrained from going hard at Aaron Rodgers and gave him all day to […]

Patriots Insulate Chargers On the Road and Move to 10-3

Good morning, Patriots fans! Well there were several reasons to be concerned with the way our New England Patriots played in San Diego against the Chargers on Sunday Night Football. But with some strong defensive plays and late clutch offensive effort, the Pats found a way to beat the Bolts. The plane ride back to […]

Can the Patriots Maintain Home Field Advantage in the AFC?

Rick: The loss to the Green Bay Packers makes the margin of error smaller for the Patriots if they want to keep the one seed. However, if they can win a tough game on the road Sunday night in San Diego, they have a great chance to be the one seed. New England plays their final […]
