WHY PLAY? JUST DANCE
Brandon Spikes is a solid NFL linebacker, a controversial Twitter user and, apparently, quite the dancer. Spikes busted a move during the third quarter of Sunday’s divisional round showdown at Gillette Stadium. The Patriots linebacker obviously was very excited about the idea of New England recovering a fumble in Texans territory. Unfortunately for Spikes, the officials determined...

Three times the Patriots have hosted the Houston Texans in Foxboro. Three times the Patriots have won big. Final scores of 40-7 (2006), 42-14 (2012), and 41-28 (2012 playoffs) are impressive, but the latest triumph wasn’t as easy as that last margin suggests thanks...
If the Patriots are to hoist the Lombardi Trophy this year, they’ll have to get the job done without Rob Gronkowski.
According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, Gronkowski reinjured his forearm during the first quarter of Sunday’s divisional round playoff game against the Texans. The injury will reportedly require surgery, and the Pro Bowl tight end will miss the rest of...
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has undergone surgery on his broken left arm, a person with knowledge of the operation tells The Associated Press.
Gronkowski suffered the season-ending injury Sunday when he caught a pass from Tom Brady in the first quarter and landed out of bounds on the arm for an incompletion in New England's 41-28 playoff win over the Houston Texans.
The New England Patriots took care of the Houston Texans yesterday with little resistance, winning the game 41-28. Brandon Spikes was quite happy when the Patriots recovered a fumble and decided to let everyone know. His wave style first down signal pretty much made my day. Can't wait for that Ravens vs. Pats game next Sunday. #BradyIsASurgeon

You could say the AFC Divisional round game between the New England Patriots and the Houston Texans came down to one play.
With 4:20 left in the 3rd quarter, the Texans were going on a dangerous looking drive. The score was 24-13 to New England, and a touchdown would have made things very interesting heading into the 4th. Then, up pops Rob Ninkovich.
The defense throws Matt Schaub different...
On Sunday night while the Patriots were trampling the Texans at Gillette Stadium, Brendon Ayanbadejo was sitting at home stewing while watching New England’s no huddle offense.
That’s when the Ravens’ special teamer took to Twitter to air his grievances with the Patriots’ hurry-up ways. Unfortunately, he likely did more harm than good for Baltimore by pointing out what he...
Welcome to the playoffs, Shane Vereen.
New England's forgotten second-year tailback—who was drafted 17 spots ahead of Stevan Ridley in 2011—stole the show Sunday evening, piling up 124 total yards and three touchdowns in New England's 41-28 thrashing of the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round.
The speedster out of California proved to be the X-factor for...
On the face of things, this weekend couldn't have gone much better for the New England Patriots. A comfortable victory to get the play-offs started over the Houston Texans, preceded by an upset in the form of the Baltimore Ravens win over the Denver Broncos, meaning another game at Gillette, with everything on the line.
However, there is a big smear on the weekend. When Rob...
