Patriots: Offense continues to improve in win over Houston

October 11, 2021

PHOTO: JUSTIN REX/AP It wasn’t very pretty, but 2-3 looks and sounds a hell of a lot better than 1-4.

The defense continued to struggle as Texans rookie quarterback Davis Mills threw…

Patriots: Can a 1-3 team have a “trap” game?

October 10, 2021

Yes. Yes it can. In years past, this “get right” scenario for the Patriots would have been an absolute layup. We would all be fully confident in Bill Belichick’s ability to mess with a rookie quarterback and Tom Brady would shred this lackluster Houston defense and all would be right with the world come Monday morning. Those days simply don’t exist anymore and Sunday’s meeting with the lowly Texans is…

Patriots: The margin of error was thin and the Patriots made too many mistakes to beat Brady and the Bucs

October 4, 2021

AP Photo/Elise Amendola The Patriots learned a valuable lesson in their 19-17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The margin of error is razor thin when it comes to close games in football. Contrary to what the narrative will be. The Patriots did not lose last night because Tom Brady picked apart Belichick’s defense. They lost because they committed eight penalties for 77 yards and turned the ball over twice….
