Damien Harris signs a one year deal with the Bills

March 21, 2023

Damien Harris has a new home. The now former Patriots running back has signed a one year deal with the rival Buffalo Bills. Harris was drafted by the Patriots in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft out of Alabama. He played sparingly his rookie season, only appearing in one game, a blow out win over the Jets. In 2020, he played in ten games rushing for 691 yards…

 Credit: Michael Dwyer/AP FOXBOROUGH – It’s not hyperbole to call the Patriots’ 37-26 home opening loss to the Ravens on Sunday afternoon one of the worst losses in recent memory. This was primed to be one of those special sports weekends in New England, with Vince Wilfork being inducted into the team Hall of Fame to kick the festivities off.

Patriots: Pats get first win with grind-it-out effort in Pittsburgh

September 18, 2022

Photo – Don Wright/AP The final 6:33 of Sunday’s 17-14 win over the Steelers should give Patriots fans quite a bit of hope, even though the second game of the year still left a lot to be desired offensively. Clinging to a three-point lead, New England used 13 plays to run out the entirety of the remaining clock, dominating the Steelers up front while Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson iced…

September 11, 2022

Kickoff: The Patriots kickoff the season against a familiar foe. The Patriots have opened up each of the last two seasons against the Dolphins. They beat them in 2020 but lost the home opener last season.

Patriots: Sights, sounds & thoughts from Day 13 of training camp (joint practice with Carolina edition)

August 16, 2022

The last 12 practices were interesting, but it truly felt like training camp for the first time on Tuesday morning when the Carolina Panthers joined the Patriots on the practice field for the first of two joint sessions. Chippy play, trash talking, a brawl and most importantly, some progress for the offense all unfolded in front of thousands of fans and dozens of media members, but there was a bunch…


Patriots: Sights, sounds & thoughts from Day 12 of training camp

August 15, 2022

With Carolina set to visit Tuesday and Wednesday for joint practices before a preseason game Friday night, the Pats weren’t in pads on Monday, but still got some things accomplished. Jumping right into the next installment of sights, sounds and thoughts… -I believe Brendan Schooler was first out today, not Terrance Mitchell. However, Coach Belichick and the assistant coaches were talking as players made their way out, so there’s a…


Patriots: Sights, sounds & thoughts from Day 9 of training camp (Gillette Stadium practice edition)

August 5, 2022

For the first time in 2022, the Patriots played some football inside Gillette Stadium on Friday night. The annual season ticket holder and Foxborough resident practice drew a good crowd that almost filled the lower bowl. A rainbow came out after vicious thunderstorms just before the Patriots took the field, but it wasn’t a good omen as there’s still a lot to figure out about this team with inconsistency rearing…


Patriots: Sights, sounds & thoughts from Day 6 of training camp

August 2, 2022

Day two of padded practices was another good one for the defense, a struggle for the running game and while there were some more flashy catches from a few receivers, an inconsistent day for the offense yet again. -Terrance Mitchell made it six-for-six as the first guy out for practice. -Lonnie Paxton was on hand in the family/VIP area. He might be the only field goal/long snapper in NFL history…


Patriots: Sights, sounds & thoughts from Day 5 of training camp

August 1, 2022

We finally got some real football on Monday morning. Ok, maybe not real in the sense of full speed, full contact, but the pads came on for the first time when the Patriots hit the field for the fifth practice of the summer. There was a heavy amount of running game work and there were no big hits or fisticuffs, but still plenty to sift through after what I’d call…
