Key to the Game

What is your biggest key to the game on Saturday? Rick: The biggest key for Saturday’s game is going to be the Patriots’ offensive line against the pass rush of the Ravens. The Ravens were second in the NFL during the regular season in sacks. Also, they sacked Ben Roethlisbeger five times in their win over the Steelers last […]

Playoff Preview: Patriots vs. Ravens

For the fifth consecutive season, the New England Patriots’ first playoff game will be a home divisional playoff game. Out of the three possible opponents New England could have played in this round, they got arguably the toughest opponent, the Baltimore Ravens. For the third time in four years, the Patriots and Ravens will square […]

Whose the Bigger Rival, Baltimore or Denver?

Raj: You could make a fair case for both teams. You can say Baltimore because of how dirty they play against the Patriots and it’s been going on for the past couple of years. At the same time you can say Denver because for the same amount of time, it’s always been a high scoring, back-and-forth […]

What’s the Big Difference?

What is the biggest difference between this game and the last time the Patriots and Ravens clashed in the playoffs in 2012?  Rick: The biggest difference between this year and the 2012 AFC Championship Game is that the Patriots have the two cornerbacks in Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner. My first reaction when I saw this would […]

Who is the Patriots’ MVP: Brady or Gronk?

Raj: This is a really tough question because both are so valuable to the Pats. But in the end, I would still say Brady is more valuable. The Pats can still win without Gronk, it would just be really difficult. They cannot win at all without Brady. That’s why I still think Brady is more valuable. […]

Which Team Would You Like to See Heading to Foxboro?

Rick:  The team I would most like to see come into Foxboro is the Cincinnati Bengals. While Cincy went a long way in terms of winning big games when they beat the Broncos at home, Andy Dalton will only have one playoff win under his belt if he wins on the road at Indy this […]

Analyzing the Brady Contract Re-negotiation

What is your take on Tom Brady’s contract re-negotiation? Kyle: I always find the business side of the NFL is amazing. It is the most profitable league, which employs the most athletes, and it has very little guaranteed money. Most of the recent collective bargaining has favored the owners, so any player giving anything back is surprising. That […]

FOXBORO, MA - DECEMBER 28:  Offensive Coordinator Josh McDaniels of the New England Patriots looks on before a game against the Buffalo Bills at Gillette Stadium on December 28, 2014 in Foxboro, Massachusetts.  (Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images)

Will Josh McDaniels Take a Head Coaching Job?

Rick: I think, eventually, Josh McDaniels will land a head coaching job elsewhere, but I don’t think it will be this season. I predict that the Falcons are going to hire Rex Ryan to help improve their defense and the 49ers might look internally for their head coach. I think the one thing that holds McDaniels back […]

Why Even Try? – Week 17 Risers and Fallers

I won’t belabor this post, as the Patriots trotted out a half-effort on Sunday against Buffalo.  I’m not knocking the Patriots for not trying as I personally thought that they should go into full-blown “rest the starters” mode.  With nothing to gain and potentially everything to lose, placing the team’s key players in positions where […]

Bills End Bisontennial Drought With Season Ending Win in Foxboro

Good evening, Patriots fans. Okay, maybe it hasn’t been 200 years but it feels like forever since the Bills last beat the Pats in Massachusetts (2000 to be exact). I honestly cannot seem to understand why so many things went wrong today. It’s impossible to ever imagine seeing this New England team look so dull […]

Will the Offensive Line be the Patriots’ Downfall?

Raj: If the Patriots offense can’t put up numbers, it will most likely be due to the fact that the offensive line wasn’t protecting Brady enough. If Brady has to rush to make plays and throws errant passes, that’s on the O-line. As of late, the defense has won games so they certainly won’t be the […]

Preview: Patriots vs. Bills

Last week, the New England Patriots (12-3) were able to squeak out a 17-16 win over the New York Jets and got some help to ensure that this game on Sunday means nothing towards their playoff positioning. Thanks to a Denver Broncos loss on Monday night, the Pats will have the number one seed and […]
