Bill Belichick never overlooks an opponent, whether they’re undefeated or winless — like the next team on the Patriots’ schedule.
The Buccaneers will visit Foxboro on Sunday, reeling from a pair of heartbreaking last-second losses. Greg Schiano‘s team has endured a rough start to the regular season, allowing late fourth quarter leads to slip away in both Week 1 and Week 2. Those losses, though, have shown that the Bucs are much better than their 0-2 record might indicate, and Belichick is well aware.
“I really feel like we’re playing a 2-0 team,” Belichick said during a conference call on Monday.
The Patriots are 2-0, after grinding out wins in similar down-to-the-wire games to start the season. The Bucs, meanwhile, haven’t enjoyed much luck late in games this season, which has ultimately cost them two wins.
“Really, talk about a team that’s two plays away from being 2-0, that’s Tampa,” Belichick said. “They’ve been really close the last two weeks and have come up short but a coupl

Oh, the irony of that caption
It's not uncommon for Patriots coach Bill Belichick to praise his upcoming opponents. As far as he's concerned, every team in the NFL has enough good players to win if his team doesn't play well.
Belichick continued to do that at his Monday morning conference call when asked about his next opponent: the 0-2 Tampa Bay Bucs. While most in...
Tom Brady after winning his first Super Bowl

The sentencing hearing is set for December fifth. Dennard also must appear in court for in October for his DUI case. In February, Dennard was found guilty of assaulting...
The fourth annual Mayo Bowl was jam packed with Patriots stars. We had photographer Katie Shannon on hand to document the players coming in on the red carpet, as well as Matt Light, Jerod Mayo and Tedy Bruschi's enthusiastic auction. Mayo even told someone he'd come to their house to watch the Celtics if they upped their bid.

The New England Patriots have a receiving corps has looked relatively incompetent through the first two weeks of the season. With Danny Amendola possibly out for several more weeks, they could certainly use a veteran like Brandon Lloyd who has experience in their offensive system. If Lloyd hadn’t turned his attention from football to acting, […]
So, all of this could work out football wise for Alfonzo Dennard.
The Patriots cornerback was sentenced to a month in jail this off-season for an incident that occurred before he was drafted. Months later, he was arrested for an OUI. He finally had his hearing today, in which he admitted violating probation. The sentencing will not be until December however.
With each passing week reports will intensify regarding whether Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will play. By opting not to put Gronkowski on the reserve/physically unable to perform list which would have shut him down for six weeks of the regular season the Pats sent a strong signal that he’ll be playing before Week Six.
He has missed two games and now ESPN reports that Gronkowski...
The 2013 New England Patriots are a team already decimated by injuries, particularly on the offensive side of the ball. Now their best special teams player, one of the best in the business, will be on the sideline for a while as well.
Matthew Slater has a broken wrist and will be out 4-6 weeks. While he is very rarely used as a receiver, Slater is a team captain who excels on...
Danny Amendola has torn adductor muscles, according to a report by Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer. Glazer says the Patriots’ receiver has received conflicting reports from doctors about whether or not he also has a sports hernia – an injury that would require surgery but would have him back on the field in “about a month”. Amendola reportedly sought additional opinions Sunday but...
According to Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald, Patriots receiver Danny Amendola will not undergo surgery for a sports hernia.Fantasy Spin:Amendola has torn adductor muscles, which connect the hips to the legs, but the surgery would have kept him out 4-6 weeks. The oft-injured receiver is a long shot to play Week 4 but could be back Week 5.
A video with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's face superimposed on the head of Miley Cyrus in her music video "Wrecking Ball" is making the rounds and the only word that can describe it is disturbing.
First, there was a version with Nicolas Cage's face on the twerking singer's head, now comes one with Brady in panties and what don't look like Uggs...
Darrelle Revis tormented the Patriots twice a season for five years — he didn’t play in either meeting in 2012 — so Bill Belichick is well aware of the type of talent he’ll be facing on Sunday. He’s just glad he’ll only have to see the Buccaneers’ star corner once.
“Well, at least we only have to play against him once, hopefully,” Belichick said on a conference...
I don’t know what possesses people to do these things, but Tom Brady has now gotten the Miley Cyrus Wrecking Ball video treatment. This video is creepy to say the least.
