Patriots: Defense gives up 567 yards of total offense in 35-29 OT loss to Dallas

October 17, 2021

Photo: Maddie Meyer/Getty Images Sunday’s regular season home game against the Cowboys may have been one of the most entertaining games at Gillette Stadium in quite some time, but in the end, it will go down in history as a historically bad performance for the defense. Sure, the unit made some huge stops – particularly inside the red zone and even in goal-to-go situations – but it also gave up…

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. Mac Jones continued to show is toughness behind a patchwork offensive line who did its job admirably on Sunday and Nick Folk buried a 21-yard field goal with 15 seconds left to give New England a 25-22 win. 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….

Patriots: Brady gets his storybook ending despite poor showing

October 4, 2021

It was truly a night Patriots fans and the Brady family will never forget. After so much hype – it felt like a Super Bowl the last two weeks – Tom Brady’s triumphant return to Foxborough on Sunday night had it all. You had the near perfect moment of him running out for pregame to a thunderous ovation. You then had the Bucs being introduced to another standing ovation and…

Patriots: Despite loss, Mac Jones continues to show he’s the right guy for New England

October 4, 2021

PHOTO: AP Photo/Elise Amendola I think we can all agree the Patriots have their quarterback of the future. Many fans were still on the fence about the first round draft pick, but Jones should have put any questions you may have had about his ability to lead to bed on Sunday night after going toe-to-toe with Tom Brady in the most hyped regular season game in North American sports history….
