Who is the Bigger Threat: The Broncos or the Colts?

Rick:  The bigger threat to the Patriots is still the Denver Broncos. While Bill Belichick seems to have the formula to stop both Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck, the Patriots have forced Luck into seven interceptions in the two matchups they have played. Plus, I think Denver’s defense is better than the Colts, especially since the […]

Do the Patriots Need Home-Field to Win the AFC?

Rick: If the defense continues to improve, then home field isn’t as big of a deal as opposed to a few weeks ago. The Patriots have had great success at home, but have also lost winnable home games in the postseason over the last few years. New England has the team to win anywhere, but a […]

Predicting the Patriots Final Record

Raj: I’m actually very worried because to clinch homefield advantage, they will need to win out. The Broncos’ schedule the rest of the way is a joke and I can confidently say they have a better chance of winning out. Their only challenge is the Bengals in Cincinnati. For the Pats I don’t realistically see that […]

Week 10 NFL Pick ‘Em

We’ve got a tight race going on as the NFL Week count reached double-digits.  I was expecting this to be a dull week with a lot of seemingly lopsided matchups.  Turns out 5 of our 7 picks were non-unanimous, with only Arizona and Detriot getting the nod from all four bloggers.

How Would You Grade the Patriots So Far?

Rick:  The New England Patriots get a A- from me for the first half of the season. It started off as a C during the first four games, especially against the Kansas City Chiefs. The last five games have been very impressive as it has shown has the team’s resilience and their mental toughness, especially […]

What Was the Key to Beating the Broncos?

Kyle:  The biggest key to the Pats’ victory was the physical play of the defense. It was just like old times with the Flying Elvis’ throttling anything in white. Games, and poundings, like these stay with the losing team for a few weeks. The play that set the tone was early in the first quarter […]

The Ultimate Weapon: Week 10 Risers and Fallers

I spend at least an hour and a half Monday through Friday listen to Boston sports talk radio on my way to and from work.  This being Brady/Manning week, I was treated to a never ending monologue about how Tom Brady doesn’t have the weapons that Peyton Manning does and question after question about why […]


Patriots Trot into Bye Week with Critical Win Over Broncos

Good evening, Patriots fans! We got to see another classic: The 16th clash between two future hall-of-fame quarterbacks – Peyton Williams Manning vs. Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Jr. We knew the Patriots had the edge in this game since it took place at Gillette Stadium and Manning has always struggled against Brady in the Foxboro […]

Does Today’s Game Have Super Bowl Implications?

Rick:  If the Patriots lose Sunday’s game, it wouldn’t end their chances of making the Super Bowl, but it would definitely put a dent into them. A loss would give the Broncos the head-to-head tiebreaker and make it more likely with New England’s difficult schedule after the bye week that Denver would host a playoff rematch. The key […]

Is the Brady/Manning Debate Actually a Debate?

Kyle:  I think it’s only a debate in the sense that sports rivalries fuel debates. The problem with this as a legitimate debate is the fact that they actually don’t go head-to-head as say a Bird and Magic or Ali and Frazier did. Both players are somewhat beholding to the talent, schemes, and successes of […]

Week 9 NFL Pick ‘Em

Another week, another round of Pick ‘Em.  However, this just isn’t any week here in New England.  It’s Broncos week.   And that means we’re breaking from routine and actually putting the Patriots up for debate in this week’s contest.  Time to see which of us bloggers are willing to go against the grain and […]

Preview – Patriots vs. Broncos

The New England Patriots (6-2) continued their hot streak last Sunday afternoon when they won their fourth game in a row against the Chicago Bears at Gillette Stadium. In a 51-23 blowout, Tom Brady only threw five incomplete passes while passing for 354 yards and five touchdowns. Since the loss to the Chiefs, Brady has […]

Pats vs Broncos tickets most expensive game in Week 9

The New England Patriots saw panic all around them at 2-2, yet they’ve remained cool and collected. While everyone else was freaking out about Tom Brady and company losing a step, New England has merely responded with a four-game winning streak and seemingly looks stronger with each passing week. They’ll get a stiff test at […]

Progression Towards the Mean: Week 8 Risers and Fallers

Four weeks ago, it seemed as if the entire world was questioning whether Tom Brady was declining and if the Patriots penchant for trading down in the draft and shopping for value had finally caught up with them.  There is a phrase in statistics called “regression towards the mean”.   If you happen to take a […]
