    Patriots release Washington, add CB

    With Peyton Manning and the high-flying Broncos coming into Gillette Stadium Sunday night, the Patriots don’t want to get caught short in the secondary. With four defensive backs hobbled by injuries, New England made a roster move Saturday to bolster its depth in the secondary, promoting cornerback Justin Green from the practice squad and releasing running back Leon Washington. The 22-year-old Green was an undrafted free agent out of Illinois. […]

    Welker practices, not talking to Brady this week

Welker, who starred for six seasons with the Patriots, signed with the Broncos in the off-season and is Denver’s leading receiver. But his status for Sunday’s game at Gillette Stadium was put in […]

    Pats-Panthers: What the referee said

    Anyone who watched the New England Patriots lose to the Carolina Panthers 24-20 Monday night knows how the game ended: in controversy with Tom Brady berating the officials as they came off the field. Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski appeared to be interfered with by Carolina linebacker Luke Kuechly on the game’s final play, which ended with a Brady interception in the end zone. A flag was originally thrown for […]

    Vereen is back, what’s it mean?

    It’s been so long since the Patriots have played – their last game was Nov. 3 -  I’ve forgotten who their quarterback is. Oh yeah. Tom Brady. He’s probably going to do something special tonight. According to the Patriots, Brady will make his 185th start with Bill Belichick tonight in Carolina, setting an NFL record. Dan Marino and Don Shula were together for 184 starts. But that’s not the big […]

    Patriots and Ed Reed: will it happen?

    For as long as Ed Reed has been playing in the NFL, one of his biggest fans has been Bill Belichick. Any time the Patriots played the Baltimore Ravens, Belichick would be effusive in his praise of the safety, long regarded as one of the best to ever play that position. But Wednesday, hours before Reed became a free agent after he cleared waivers after being released by Houston, Belichick […]

    Coming off the bye, Patriots face hot Panthers

    In the Bill Belichick era, the New England Patriots have always done well in the game immediately after their bye week. Under Belichick, New England is 10-3 after the bye. But Monday night’s game at the Carolina Panthers might provide the biggest post-bye test for New England yet. The 6-3 Panthers have won five in a row and have one of the NFL’s best defenses. They are second in points […]

    Pats may be off, but busy Tuesday anyway

    The New England Patriots enter their bye week with a 7-2 record and a lot of momentum coming off Sunday’s 55-31 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. But before the players took off for a five-day minibreak, they met the media on Tuesday, talking about everything from the Miami Dolphins situation to their own health, and the Patriots made some roster moves. The moves first: New England waived veteran wide receiver […]
