    Patriots starting time Sunday could change

    With possibly so much on the line in the final week of the NFL season – like the No.1 overall seed, and home-field advantage, in the AFC – the starting time of the Patriots home game against the Buffalo Bills at Gillette Stadium on Sunday may change. That all depends on what happens tonight in Cincinnati, where the Bengals will play the Denver Broncos. If the Broncos beat the Bengals, […]

    A little deja vu for Patriots would be good

    Feeling down about the Patriots 26-21 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday? Well you shouldn’t. These are arguably the two best teams in the NFL and they went at each other with a fury. A couple of plays  here, a couple there, and the decision might have been reversed. And if you still need a little pick-me-up, consider this: Way back on Nov. 18, 2001, the Patriots played […]

    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 […]

The following week, the Detroit Lions and Matthew Stafford and Megatron, aka Calvin Johnson, bring the NFL’s ninth-ranked passing game to Gillette Stadium. Then it’s off to Lambeau Field and a post-Thanksgiving showdown with Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson and the […]

    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 […]
