Game Preview: Patriots @ Broncos

In the final road test for the New England Patriots, they go west to the Mile High City to take on the 8-5 Denver Broncos. New England comes in at 10-3 and a win away from clinching the AFC East. However, it did not come easy last week as the Patriots had to survive a […]

Fantasy Forecast: Week 15

Tom Brady The Broncos are firmly in the middle of the pack in terms of pass defense. They’ve given up 20 TDs through the air this season, and I think it’s safe to assume they’ll give up around 3 more this week to go along with 300+ yards. If the Broncos keep the game close, Brady […]

Week 15 NFL Pick ‘Em

That’s two weeks in a row that I’ve finished in first place.  You see, I’m not such a horrible picker.  There have been many weeks where I’ve picked incredibly well.  There just happens to be some weeks where I completely fell apart (cough, cough 0-7). But enough about me and my last place struggles.  This […]

Foxboro Blog Top 12: Week 14

With the playoff picture getting clearer and clearer, the Top 12 is getting locked down and ready for the post-season.  We’ve experienced an unprecedented lack of movement this week.  The top teams continue to win and give us little reason to shake things up..  Ranking Team Last Week Change Record Next Game 1 1 0 […]

Q&A Session with Ian Henson

Ian Henson has been writing for or against the Denver Broncos since 1998, his reverse course started in television and ended up in blogging. For the conscious part of 28 years he has been a fan. Finally arriving this month in Denver via New York City, the reaction has been similar to Napolean crossing the […]

Opening Lines: Week 15

The Patriots are six-point favorites in Week 15 as they travel to Denver to take on the Broncos.   For once, the pre-game show won’t be focused entirely on Tom Brady as Tebowmania is set to descend on Patriot Nation this week. Don’t be surprised if the media completely forgets that there are 15 other […]

Week 14 Risers and Fallers: Not much to cheer about despite a win

Perhaps nothing exemplifies the Patriots defense more than the four-lettered words dropped by Tom Brady during his sideline scuffle with offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien. *&#* Frustration  *#*## Outside of Brady’s careless endzone interception, the offense continued on its torrid scoring pace – dropping 34 points on a solid Redskins defense. The problem however was the […]

Game Preview: Patriots @ Redskins

Most Patriot fans probably have to feel bitter about last week. Despite going to 9-3 with a 31-24 win over the Indianapolis Colts. The Patriots led 31-3 going into the 4th quarter, but gave up 21 points in the 4th quarter to Dan Orlovsky of all quarterbacks. But as the old saying, a win is […]

Fantasy Forecast: Week 14

Tom Brady Expect similar numbers to last week’s haul: close to 300 yards and 2 scores. Washington’s pass defense isn’t bad, and they should force the Pats to rely on quick passes since their pass rush generates a decent amount of pressure. Don’t count on more than 2-3 scores this week, but Brady at least […]

Week 14 NFL Pick ‘Em

Look who finished with the best record last week… Ok, so it was in a 4-way tie with a mediocre 4-3 record, but I still was the best picker in Week 13, despite my over all record.  My goals for the remaining four weeks are two-fold:  #1 – get above .500, and #2 – Try […]

Q&A Session with Redskins Hog Heaven

  Once again, it’s time for our weekly Q&A session with a blogger who covers the Patriots’ upcoming opponent.  Up this week is Greg Trippiedi from Redskins Hog Heaven.  Here’s what Tom had to say about the Skins and Pats leading up to Sunday’s game. 1. This is something I have felt strongly about. When […]

Foxboro Blog Top 12: Week 13

This is a Top 12 first – no movement at all for the top half of the board.  I guess that’s what happens when you have an undefeated team and the five teams below them all winning by healthy margins. In other news, the Raiders and Bears made me look like a fool last week, […]

Opening Lines: Week 14

The Patriots opened as 7.5-point favorites as they travel to Washington to take on the Redskins in Week 14. Despite my inhibitions about trusting Rex Grossman against a good team, I was leaning toward taking the Redskins in this game when I first glanced at the line. For all of their warts, this Washington team […]

Week 13 Risers and Fallers: The Gronk Strikes Back

Poor Sergio Brown. Even with an injury-riddled secondary, Brown found himself on the bench while a street free agent (Nate Jones) and a backup wide receiver and special teams captain (Matt Slater) started at safety against the Colts. That was the type of defensive “talent” on the field for the Patriots in their 31-24 win […]

Game Preview: Patriots vs. Colts

When you talk to NFL experts, the Patriots-Colts rivalry is the one that most will consider the best over the past ten years. On Sunday, it will not have the same pomp and circumstance as it did when Tom Brady and Peyton Manning were squaring off against each other. On Sunday, Brady will still be […]
