New England Patriots
St. Louis Rams
The New England Patriots superb offense finally got some help from the rest of the team.
The Patriots used three scoring passes from Tom Brady, two touchdowns on interception returns and another on a punt return to match a team single-game scoring record in a 59-24 rout of the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
The first matchup between three-time Super Bowl winner Brady and star rookie Andrew Luck was no match.
The Patriots (7-3) won their fourth straight game and extended their lead in the AFC East to three games over the other three teams. The Colts (6-4) had their four-game winning streak stopped by the NFL's best offense and one of its worst defenses.
Now New England must hurry to prepare for its Thanksgiving night meeting with the Jets (4-6). New York ended a three-game slide with a 27-13 win over the St. Louis Rams.
For the Patriots, Sunday's win was their most complete in a season in which they've averaged 35.8 points per game and lost their three games by a comb...

No passing of the torch here: just a handshake
Some things never change, but a lot of things do.
There was not a passing of the torch from Tom Brady to Andrew Luck on Sunday, as the Patriots dominated the Colts in every sense of the word. The Pats’ 59-24 stomping of Indianapolis showed the NFL that Foxboro is still not a place any team wants to travel come January.
But it was...
Art imitates life in Tom Brady’s newest UGG for Men commercial for the Holiday season. The company heard about Brady’s tradition of buying the brand’s Ascot slippers for his offensive line. And after making it to the Super Bowl last season, the UGG for Men ambassador gifted all of his teammates with the footwear. UGG used this as the basis for their newest commercial titled...
The Patriots made sure Andrew Luck learned something about facing greatness while the Rams learned a wounded animal like the Jets is a dangerous animal.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady knows a thing or two about looking good. Heck, he was just named one of the sexiest men alive by People and he also happens to be married to Gisele Bundchen, a Brazilian model/actress/bombshell. He also knows a little bit about how to play the game of football. He blended his expertise of both in the above video clip.Here Brady is starring...
The Big Leagues Great player. Handsome dude. But seriously, how uncool is the Pats QB?
Tom Brady has never been one to shy away from the limelight, and his willingness to have some fun has translated well into some off-the-field opportunities.
The Patriots quarterback has parlayed that into some high-profile gigs on the entertainment side of the world, from a turn hosting Saturday Night Live to his partnership with UGG, which was often the subject of much mirth from...
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was really good Sunday, even though it wasn't necessary. The Patriots returned two interceptions for touchdowns, returned a punt for a score and kicked a field goal. That, plus three extra points, accounted for 24 of New England's points in a 59-24 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. In fact Brady was inactive for more than 30 real...
The New England Patriots took a key game in the AFC play-off picture by dismantling the Indianapolis Colts 59-24. Tom Brady (24/35, 331 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT), Rob Gronkowski (7 receptions, 137 yards, 2 TD) and Julian Edelman (5 receptions, 57 yards 1 TD/1 rush, 47 yards/68 yard punt ret. TD) starred on the offensive side of the ball, while Alfonzo Dennard and Aqib Talib (on...
Do the New England Patriots need the top seed in the AFC to make the Super Bowl? No. In the three seasons that the Patriots have won the Super Bowl, two of them they had to win in Pittsburgh in the AFC Championship. The last two seasons, the Pats have had the top seed in the AFC, and they lost in the Divisional round and Super Bowl. Home field advantage may have helped them beat...
I’ve been licking my chops about this one all week, since the Colts dismantled the Jaguars 9 days ago on prime time. They will be in tough as they face the AFC powerhouse Patriots. In a rivalry that used to feature the two best quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, we now have a battle between rookie quarterback sensation Andrew Luck facing off against Brady.
In the Bill Belichick...
Stripped of my sanity and right mind following a 51-0 rotten tomato against UCLA (or so it felt like), I called an audible last night and trekked through the regrettable cold with my Clubhouse crewmate Senor Piss-Piss - not to crash the first Sunday morning tailgate we'd find along the east coast...but to pay $10.50 and get The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 over and...
The Indianapolis Colts meet the New England Patriots today in a match-up that is far more relevant than anyone thought when the season began.
Both teams stand at 6-3. That’s a good thing for the Colts, a team that many thought would struggle to win one or to games. It may not be that great of a thing for the Patriots, who struggled early on in the season, but have recently ratcheted...
The New England Patriots may have put a whooping on the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, but they lost their second-most important offensive player in the process. Aside from Tom Brady, no player is more crucial to New England’s success on offense than Rob Gronkowski. Now that Gronk is expected to miss at least four weeks with a broken forearm, the Patriots will need to make some...
