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.

After his first career fumble recovery, Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez scored a wee touchdown in Monday Night’s contest against the Texans. Then he did…this.
Can someone tell me what this touchdown celebration is?

With six straight victories and their fourth consecutive AFC East title already wrapped up, the New England Patriots are playing perhaps their best football of the season.
And a large chunk of their recent run has come without two of their top players.
So, imagine the big boost the Patriots will receive from having one of their best players on each side of the ball return for what...

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...
Wide receiver Wes Welker (ankle) is active for Monday Night Football vs. Houston.
Tight end Aaron Hernandez (ankle) and wideout Brandon Lloyd (knee) are active as well after carrying a questionable tag through the week.
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...
Donald Trump had the right idea in mind when he wished the New England Patriots good luck before the team’s “Monday Night Football” game against the Houston Texans, but he made one mistake. He called Bill Belichick “Bob” for some reason:
Good Luck to Bob Kraft, Tom Brady and Coach Bob Belichick tonight.

Courtesy the Patriots twitter account here are the inactives for the game. That means Logan Mankins, Chandler Jones and Brandon Bolden will all play - or at least be available for the game.Great news!
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...
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...
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his wife, eventual billionaire model Gisele Bundchen, just welcomed their second child (Brady’s third) into the world. Joining the two boys that Brady has already fathered is a daughter named Vivian Lake Brady, which is considerably better than Katniss Vanellope. But I’m not here to make child birth announcements for millionaires...
Tom Brady is my Vader Juan…
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...
The ball was very much bouncing the right way for the Patriots on Monday night against the Texans.
Tom Brady tossed a checkdown to Danny Woodhead early in the fourth quarter, when Texans star defensive end J.J. 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...
