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 […]

New England Destroys Chicago At Home in Bearrific Blowout

Good afternoon, Patriots fans! Our New England team took on the Chicago Bears in an important game at Gillette Stadium. I almost had tickets to this game and I seriously wish I could have witnessed the Patriots blowout the Bears in person (could not go as my family and I are observing Diwali). Nonetheless, it […]

Should the Patriots Make a Deadline Trade?

Raj:  Right now, the Patriots should prioritize at OL, DL, and LB because those are some shaky areas on this team right now. They could get Dane Fletcher back from Tampa Bay to add more depth. Speaking of Tampa Bay, should the Patriots feel the need to add another receiver, I don’t see why they […]

Preview: Patriots vs. Bears

It was an ugly win for the New England Patriots (5-2) last Thursday night against the New York Jets, but a win that the team will definitely take it. Despite giving up over 200 rushing yards to the New York Jets, New England managed to win at Gillette Stadium by a score of 27-25 despite […]

Week 8 NFL Pick ‘Em

You know it’s a crazy week when three out of four of us are backing a 1-6 team.   There’s a lot of limbs being gone out on this week with six of the seven match-ups featuring a single pick going against the consensus of the other three writers.

How Can the Patriots Stop the Run?

Kyle:  Nothing this year- but maybe in the future they shouldn’t cut guys who can play like Tommy Kelley just because there is a cheaper alternative on the roster. Sometimes you can’t just plug and play guys- sometimes the more expensive guy is a better player who will do more to help the team win. […]

Patriots tickets 24% above average for matchup vs Bears

It was only a few weeks ago the NFL world was up in arms over the New England Patriots getting off to a “horrible” 2-2 start. Three games later, the would-be declining Tom Brady looks as good as ever and his Pats are looking quite strong at 5-2. Time can cure all, it seems, but […]

Who is the Bigger Loss, Mayo or Ridley?

Rick: With Chandler Jones out for the next month, you have to say the bigger loss for the Patriots is Jerod Mayo. With Mayo out, the team loses a key leader on defense and someone who helps out against the run. Without Mayo and Jones, the team will be lacking two significant pieces on a defense that […]

Should The Pats Have Performed Better Against the Jets?

Is there any reason to be concerned that last Thursday’s game against the lowly Jets was such a close contest? Raj:  Not really. I mean yeah, we should be worried about how the Jets ran the ball like that. But on the other hand, I expected a close game. Except for the buttfumble game, isn’t […]

Redemption Story: Week 7 Risers and Fallers

Beyond the huge amount of relief I felt when Nick Folk’s potential game-winning kick ended up in the turf, there was also a sense of justice felt, knowing that the man who blocked the field goal had finally been redeemed.   None of us can forget the incredulous “pushing your own teammate” penalty that was […]
