Found December 09, 2012 on Kramerica Sports:
With Julian Edelman out this week,Brandon Lloyd may actually be targeted on Monday Night Football, providing his loyal owners with a last ditch effort to salvage the season. While Lloyd is listed as questionable, that is Patriots talk for “likely to play, Belichick just wants to beat around the bush”. Brandon Lloyd has been useless this fantasy season, but he could have his best week in recent memory. That being said, Lloyd has potential to succeed, based solely on the volume of passes New England throws. I prefer Lloyd to players like Jeremy Maclin or Mike Wallace this week.

Aqib Talib Must Improve on Slow Start to Patriots Career for New England to Stop Andre Johnson on Monday Night

The Patriots’ pass defense has improved since Aqib Talib came to Foxboro, but surprisingly, he’s been the weak link in the New England secondary. It will be key for Talib to play the best game of his brief Patriots career while he’s matched up against the Texans’ star wide receiver, Andre Johnson. After an off year plagued by injuries in 2011, Johnson has come roaring back...

Donald Trump Tweets Good Luck to Patriots Head Coach ‘Bob’ Belichick

Apparently Donald Trump is a New England Patriots fan, yet, he doesn’t even know the head coach’s first name. Trump attempted to tweet good luck to the Patriots’ owner, head coach and quarterback on Monday night, but accidentally called Bill Belichick, “Bob.” It seems that Trump got a case of the Meninos when he went to type his well wishes. Calling Bill ‘Bob’ may not...

So Much For The Baby Weight

Congratulations to Tom Brady and Gisele who welcomed their second child, a baby girl named Vivian, into the world today. Gisele has been a big advocate for working out during pregnancy, saying that she believes women allow themselves to become “garbage disposals” while they are pregnant. Apparently it works for her because here she is shortly after giving birth to the couples...

Another No-Win Game on Tap For Patriots

No tomato cans this week. Or next. Make no mistake, tonight’s game against the Houston Texans is a tough one, no matter how Dan Shaughnessy might try to reverse-jinx you into thinking it’s going to be a Patriots cakewalk. Much of last week on the airwaves, well, at least on a couple of shows was spent figuring out how to argue that this game also means nothing, or if it means...

Patriots' stout third-down offense to face tough test

BThe New England Patriots have put together some pretty impressive stats this season — averaging more than 35 points per game, boasting a plus-24 takeaway rating. Most impressive, however, many be the offense's success on third down. Since the mid-'90s, New England has put up some stellar numbers on third down, but it's never finished with higher than a 50 percent conversion...

Watt ran sixteen yards down the field to punch the ball out of the Patriots’ running back’s arms. Fortunately for New England, the ball bounced 13 yards down the field...
