Sorry Bills fans but the Pats will indeed win this weekend

Buffalo Bills fans are out in full force this week on social media. The adorable fanbase known as “The Bills Mafia” appears to be ready for their “Superbowl” against the Patriots this weekend. It’s all fun and games for them now but I’ll be anxious to see how they are feeling Saturday evening after yet […]

Patriots Notebook: Pass defense, special teams and our picks for the Pro Bowl

This felt a lot like the Washington game. Bengals hit a big play, kept it close in the first half and couldn’t hang in the second half. But why would they want to? Cincinnati came into this game 3 losses away from drafting Heisman winner Joe Burrow. True a win against the Patriots would prove […]

Patriots Notebook: Pats ‘D’ shuts down the Boys while coaching battle wasn’t close

Nasty. Wet. Cold. Windy. That is November football in the NFL. The image of the league is built around illustrations of Dick Butkus covered in mud and Ray Nitschke covered in blood. While these are images of prosperity, but they’re not pretty. Gridiron glory rarely is. With Tom Brady as the face of the Patriots […]

Belichick says Jason Garrett is a good coach? Bill’s hoodie must be tied too tightly

Every week, appearing as if being forced to do so at gunpoint, Bill Belichick stands in front of the unwashed media masses, staring sternly out at the wide eyed throng, looking like he is in a great deal of pain as he listens to their questions. He repeatedly utters the same answers weekly, not even […]

Patriots Notebook: That win was U-G-L-Y. And that’s OK.

On a day when you’re going to hear a lot of “It ain’t always pretty” and “A win is a win on the road” it’s important to remember that the Patriots improved to 9-1 with their 17-10 win in Philadelphia Sunday. But, that game was uglier than a driver’s license picture taken on July 5th. […]

The good, the bad and the horrible from the Patriots loss to the Ravens

On Sunday, the Patriots lost their first game since December 16, 2018 on the same day that the Miami Dolphins won their first game since last December’s Miami Miracle vs New England. And no matter if you are playing the Baltimore Ravens or those previously winless Miami Dolphins, you just cannot spot an opponent a […]

Patriots Notebook: Cleveland humbled. Pats 8-0 at the midway point

This week’s sign of how good the defense is, our defensive tackle intercepted a shovel pass. Just when you think that an up-ended offensive tackle, accidentally kicking the ball away from his own running back for a scoop and score touchdown the other way is the wildest play you’re going to see all day, Jonathan […]

The Pats have another young QB seeing ghosts

How many young quarterbacks, specifically in the AFC East, have the Patriots broken? Remember when Mark Sanchez was the San-chise? The Butt Fumble pretty much closed him down. Hell, New England has banished Ryan Fitzpatrick from more cities than plastic straws. Now it’s happened to Sam Darnold. I’ll never forget watching the Ravens-Chargers playoff game […]
