    A little of this, a little of that, from Patriots win

    The Patriots were able to come back and beat the Miami Dolphins 27-17 Sunday for many reasons, They shut out Miami, 24-0, in the second half because the defense throttled the Dolphins. But New England also got 111 rushing yards in the second half to help offset a so-so passing game from Tom Brady. Stevan Ridley provided the spark with 56 of his 79 rushing yards in the second half […]

    Amendola playing vs. Dolphins but no Talib

Amendola has been in-and-out of the Patriots lineup this year with injuries. He missed last week’s game with a concussion. However, cornerback Aqib Talib […]

    Pats Mankins: OLine needs to play better

    In his ninth season starting at left guard for the New England Patriots, Logan Mankins has developed a reputation as one of the toughest players in the NFL.

    Belichick: Don’t blame Chris Jones

    Rookie defensive tackle Chris Jones stood  before the media after Sunday’s overtime loss to the New York Jets and accepted blame for the 15-yard unsportsmanlike penalty he was assessed that led to Nick Folk’s winning field goal. But in his Monday conference call, head coach Bill Belichick said it wasn’t Jones’ fault. Jones was penalized for pushing a teammate as Folk attempted — and missed — a long field goal. […]

    Pats lose to Jets, Gronk returns, ref explains call

    Gronk’s playing. What’s it mean?

    Sorry for the delay, but I was at church when it was announced that tight end Rob Gronkowski would be active for the first time this season for today’s game against the New York Jets. So what’s it mean? Well, it would be unrealistic to expect Gronkowski to play 50-plus plays this week, although he has been saying he is in great shape. Regardless of how many plays he gets, […]
