    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 […]

    Tom Brady named AFC Offensive Player of Month

    Remember all that talk at the end of September that the Patriots were in deep trouble at 2-2 and Tom Brady was not the quarterback he once was? Seems like Tom took it personally because he went out and had a spectacular October – and earned AFC Offensive Player of the Month honors for that month. All Brady did was lead the Patriots to a 4-0 record in October and […]

    No time to celebrate for Patriots, Broncos on the way

    Traditionally, the Patriots and Bill Belichick give the players Monday off after a win. And if any team deserved a day off after a win this week, it’s the Patriots, coming off their near-perfect 51-23 walloping of the Chicago Bears. But nooooooooo. The Patriots will hold positional meetings Monday in preparation for the annual Tom Brady-Peyton Manning showdown next Sunday. Yeah, there are a lot of other players on the […]

    Something to prove? Nah, just glad with the win.

    Chris Jones would have had every reason to be flying high Thursday night. He blocked the 58-yard field goal attempt by Nick Folk on the game’s final play to preserve the Patriots 27-25 win over the New York Jets at Gillette Stadium. A year ago, Jones had a say in another Patriots-Jets game, though it wasn’t quite as satisfying. On Oct. 20, 2013, Jones was called for a 15-yard unsportsmanlike […]

    Rex Ryan: talk of Patriots’/Brady’s demise premature

    Rex Ryan was his typical self during a conference call with the New England media on Wednesday, which meant some great sound bites for everyone. The 1-5 Jets play the 4-2 Patriots Thursday night. When asked about the criticism Brady received a couple of weeks ago, Ryan said, “Yeah, that was hysterical, I thought. You know what I mean? It’s like, ‘Yeah, really? OK.’ I mean, come on.” Ryan said […]

    Patriots have no time to dwell on Mayo, Ridley injuries

    With a game coming up against the New York Jets on Thursday, the Patriots really don’t have any time to dwell on the possible season-ending knee injuries suffered by linebacker Jerod Mayo and running back Stevan Ridley in Sunday’s 37-22 win at Buffalo. While the Patriots had no new information Monday morning on the injuries that the two suffered, it was obvious they were already moving ahead. “Well, it already […]

    Belichick knew there was a chance the Patriots would lose Thompkins

    When the Patriots released wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins last Saturday to strengthen their weakened linebacker position (they promoted Ja’Gared Davis from the practice squad to replace the injured Dont’a Hightower for the Bengals’ game), they hoped they’d have a chance to bring him back. But the Oakland Raiders claimed the 26-year-old Thompkins on waivers on Monday. In his Tuesday morning conference call, Bill Belichick said it was a hard decision […]
