Jets 17, Patriots 3 – On snowy day in Foxborough, Pats’ loss closes worst season since 1992

January 7, 2024

FOXBOROUGH – January 7, 2024 may forever be remembered as Bill Belichick’s final game as head coach of the New England Patriots, and it won’t be a pleasant memory. The offense had one final dud left in a year full of them, putting up just 119 yards and six first downs in an ugly 17-3 loss to the Jets to finish off a disastrous 4-13 season, the worst for the…


Could this be the end for David Andrews?

January 4, 2024

David Andrews has been a walking, talking definition of leadership this season despite all the ups-and-downs. As a captain once again, Andrews has played 100% of the snaps the Pats have had on offense this season and has routinely been the first guy at the podium following some of the ugly and downright embarrassing losses the team has had in 2023. As his ninth year in the league comes to…


Buffalo 27, New England 21 – Pats battle but fall to Bills in sloppy game

December 31, 2023

Image courtesy of Adrian Kraus/AP Photo) Ugly is an understatement when trying to sum up the Bills-Pats game in Orchard Park on Sunday. Turnovers ruled the day as New England handed Buffalo the ball four times en route to a 27-21 loss. Bailey Zappe had three first half interceptions and even though the Pats were in it late thanks to another impressive defensive effort, New England dropped to 4-12 on…


Patriots eager for opportunity to ruin Bills Mafia’s NYE

December 27, 2023

They just keep growing and growing and chaos always follows. Buffalo Bills fans have developed quite the reputation and love them or hate them, there’s no denying the passion they have for their routinely failing franchise….


Dolphins 31, Patriots 17 – Miami continues to be house of horrors as Pats fall to 2-6

October 29, 2023

Image courtesy of The Palm Beach Post Well, it appears the Buffalo game was simply an anomaly. The Patriots defense gave up big plays on critical downs all day, the offense couldn’t capitalize opportunities and ultimately, the Pats lost 31-17 to Miami on Sunday afternoon. Miami out-gained New England 390-218, held the Patriots to 13 first downs and held the ball for over 35 minutes. Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle…


How different is Pats’ preparation playing an opponent twice in a month?

October 26, 2023

On Thursday morning, I asked both Jahlani Tavai and Lawrence Guy how much harder – or easier – it might be preparing for a team when facing them for the second time in a month. The Pats will be playing the Dolphins Sunday, wrapping up the season series already just eight weeks into the regular season. Playing a divisional opponent always provides problems because of the familiarity, but twice in…


With second matchup in a month looming, Pats begin prep for Miami

October 25, 2023

Image courtesy of Nancy Lane/Boston Herald In Week 2, the Patriots were a Cole Strange wild fumble recovery/first down away from possibly upsetting the Dolphins at home on a Sunday night. Now at 2-5 after a stunning win over the Bills, New England will travel to Miami this week to take on a Dolphins team that just got rolled by Philadelphia last Sunday. “Alright, I think everyone is pretty familiar…


Patriots 29, Bills 25 – Mac Jones leads game-winning drive for signature win

October 22, 2023

Image courtesy of AP Photo/Michael Dwyer FOXBOROUGH – So, we all saw that coming, right? New England led Buffalo by 12 with 7:28 to go on Sunday, gave up 13 points to fall into a three-point hole, then got a game-winning, eight-play, 75-yard touchdown drive from Mac Jones that ended with a one-yard touchdown pass to Mike Gesicki in the final 12 seconds for a stunning 29-25 win. The Patriots…


Patriots: Despite uncertainty surrounding Sunday, Pats begin preparation for win-and-in game against Buffalo

January 4, 2023

FOXBOROUGH – As local cameramen and camerawomen began setting up for the weekly Bill Belichick press conference on Wednesday morning, other media members started to trickle in. It felt like any other Wednesday during the regular season. Suddenly, about a half hour before Belichick was about to speak, everyone was notified that the NFL had allowed both the Patriots and the Bills to postpone media availability for another day given…


Patriots: Offensive ineptitude continues; Bills beat Pats again

December 2, 2022

  FOXBOROUGH – It’s official. The Buffalo Bills own the New England Patriots. For 20+ years, fans could easily dismiss any threat from the lowly, laughing stock franchise, but not anymore. Thursday night’s primetime matchup wasn’t as ugly as the playoff game a year ago, but it wasn’t much better as New England fell 24-10 to its division rivals. The offense showed zero ability to move the ball again and…
