    Revis, Browner everything Patriots hoped for

    This is exactly what Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots envisioned when they signed cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner in the off-season: the ability to shut down high-powered passing games. The two combined to make life miserable for Matthew Stafford and his top-flight receivers Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate Sunday afternoon in the Patriots 34-9 win over the Lions at Gillette Stadium. Stafford completed a career-worst 39 percent […]

    FOX TV equipment snowbound in Buffalo

    FOX Sports must be ecstatic that it has Sunday’s game from Gillette Stadium featuring the high-powered Patriots against the NFL’s best defensive team, the Detroit Lions. The game has all the makings of a classic, with some of the NFL’s best players on the field. Heck, the network assigned its top crew to the broadcast: Joe Buck, Troy Aikman and Erin Andrews on the sidelines. But in order to broadcast […]

    Brady made “inauspicious” NFL debut vs. Lions in 2000

    The Detroit Lions present a formidable challenge for the Patriots this weekend, bringing the NFL’s top-ranked defense into Gillette Stadium on Sunday. Sunday will also mark a special day for Tom Brady. It represents the anniversary of his NFL debut – which also came against the Lions. It came in a Thanksgiving Day game on Nov. 23, 2000. Detroit won that game 34-9 and Brady replaced Drew Bledsoe with about […]

    Big week for Gray continues

    It’s been one long party for Jonas Gray this week. The New England Patriots running back burst onto the national spotlight with his 201-yard, four-touchdown performance in a 42-20 win over Indianapolis Sunday night. On Tuesday it was revealed he would be on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Wednesday morning he was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week. Heady stuff for a 24-year-old kid who didn’t have a carry […]

    On to Detroit, where the D is No.1

    So the Patriots have dispatched Chicago, Denver and Indianapolis to start the six-game stretch that was going to determine their success this season. It doesn’t get any easier this week when the Detroit Lions come to Gillette Stadium for a 1 p.m. game Sunday. The Lions – perhaps because of injuries to Calvin Johnson – don’t have the high-powered offense they’ve had in the past, ranked 26th in the league […]

    Brady looking forward to indoor game.

    When you play for the New England Patriots, you learn to deal with the weather: rain, wind, snow, cold, sun. And not just during the game. The Patriots practice in it and pay close attention to it, according to quarterback Tom Brady. So, he said, it’s kind of nice to not have to worry about the weather for a week. The Patriots play the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium […]

    Patriots continue offensive surge, but don’t overlook defensive effort

    Yeah, Peyton Manning threw for 438 yards in Sunday’s game with the New England Patriots. And Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas combined for 278 of them. Yet, none of that mattered because the Patriots won the game 43-21 to continue their amazing run during this five-game winning streak that leaves them 7-2 entering their bye week. The Patriots are averaging an unheard-of 35.8 points per game during this streak. Tom […]

    Rain? Wind? Snow? Belichick will believe it when he sees it

    The forecast for Sunday’s game between the Patriots and Denver Broncos isn’t a good one: Rain, wind, temperatures in the mid-40s and dropping. Bill Belichick is having none of it. He said in his Friday morning press briefing that the only forecast he believes is the one he sees when he walks onto the field – wherever the Patriots are playing. “When you play in New England, you have to […]
