FOXBORO, Mass. -- Devin
McCourty nearly fumbled away a win on Sunday night, literally. But without
McCourty in the lineup, the Patriots would have never been in a position to win
McCourty had as eventful a
day as you could expect from nearly any player in the NFL on Sunday, both good

Sigh…yesterday’s NY Jets 26-29 OT loss to the New England Patriots was tough to digest. Actually, it still is. Mark Sanchez and co. had so many opportunities to pull out the win, but just couldn’t get it done. And as everyone knows, when you’re playing against Tom Brady, you have to play for the win. Not for the tie, or not to...
Despite Woes Patriots Defense Still Creates Turnovers
We all have our feelings on the Patriots defense, especially the secondary and the gaping amount of yardage they yield. But as a whole the New England defensive unit is among the league leaders in turnover ratio.
