Brandon Lloyd has been a disappointment thus far in the season in more ways than one for Patriot fans. And although Lloyd's spectacular sideline grabs may temporarily blind Pats fans from his other weaknesses, his inability to catch easy passes almost cost New England the game against the Jets last week. Lloyd dropped two passes over the middle that would've gone for big gains in the first half, and dropped a potential game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter. Lloyd not only finished with three drops, but he was targeted by Tom Brady a total of eight times in the game. And at the end of the Patriots' 29-26 overtime win over New York, Lloyd walked off the field with only one catch for six yards. The learning curve wasn't expected to be this big for Lloyd, who worked with Patriots' offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels in Denver and St. Louis. Through seven games, Lloyd has 35 receptions for 407 yards and one lone touchdown in garbage time at Buffalo. Lloyd has ...

With six teams on a bye, week seven was three games short of a full complement of games. Where the games lacked in number, they made up for in suspense.
During the week, 13 games were played. Of those 13 games, 11 were decided by one score.
Two went into overtime, one was decided by a single point, and another was decided by the white paint that lines the back end of the end zone...
Patriots place CB Ras-I Dowling on Injured Reserve: bit.ly/QKs3ys— New England Patriots (@Patriots) October 26, 2012Well, that was short lived. So some Patriots fans might be like, whatever it's just Ras-I Dowling. The thing is, Ras-I Dowling was basically a first round pick, taken with the 1st overall pick in the second round. Belichick passed on guys like Brook Reeds to take...

Tight end Aaron Hernandez did not make the trip to London with the Patriots for Week 8.
Apparently Hernandez suffered a setback with his injured ankle and fantasy owners should now be prepared to be without him for Week 8.
Fantasy football owners of TE Aaron Hernandez have had to adjust their rosters this season due to his injury issues this season. This week, Hernandez owners will have to once again look elsewhere for production at the tight end position. The New England Patriots will play the St. Louis Rams in London this week, but Aaron Hernandez will not be playing, in fact, he didn’t even make...
Visanthe Shiancoe hadn't stepped onto the football field for the Patriots this season. That changed Tuesday afternoon.
The 32-year-old tight end has been on short-term injured reserved with an undisclosed injury since the Patriots first signed him back on Sept. 5. But on Tuesday, the nine-year veteran finally returned the practice field, and he couldn't...
According to the New England Patriots official Facebook page, the Pats arrived at Heathrow Airport in London 10 minutes ago, at 2:18 a.m., Eastern time. Below is a photo that the Patriots Facebook and Instagram accounts uploaded yesterday, prior to Vince Wilfork and the team's flight to England.
The Patriots secondary has been the brunt of recent coverage jokes, and rightfully so. The Pats have given up 290 yards of offense through the air per game, ranking them as the fourth-worst team in the NFL in that category. The three teams beneath them are the Saints, Buccaneers and Redskins, who have a combined record of 7-12. Yet, with all of their defensive woes, New England sits...

The New England Patriots are 4-3 and look like a very mediocre football team right now.
“The Patriots are one of the best teams in the NFL”, well at least that is what everyone was saying before the season started. After the week one beat down of the Tennessee Titans, it looked like those people were correct, but since then it has been a different...
There is a story line going around this week that "the Patriots offense isn't what it used to be." Ummm, do people remember what we were saying after Week 1? When we had all our guys healthy and we completely eviscerated the Titans? We were talking about how this was the best offense since 2007, and it may be even better than that, remember? The attention span of our...

CBS Also Golden This Season
By Bruce Allen
When a couple celebrates their 50th wedding anniversary there is often a natural tendency to look back at the “glory days” of the past. In the case of the New England Patriots and CBS sports...
After the Patriots subpar start to the season, some fans are ready to throw themselves off a cliff.Everyone has gotten play in the blame game - from Bill Belichick to the secondary to the pass rush to Brandon Lloyd to even Tom Brady. With a 4-3 record and some devastating losses, I think this team deserves criticism. Some people disagree. What say you, Patriot fan?Are fans getting...
