The Rap Sheet:
There was that scene mid-game earlier in the year when Patriots QB Tom Brady was spotted icing his forearm during a game. During the Cowboys game, he was seen with a heat wrap on his forearm.
And among the game-day apparel that Brady has added is a small brace to his right forearm (left), the kind that those with tennis elbow wear. And considering his recent inaccuracy and 10 interceptions, it’s worth wondering whether he is completely healthy.
What do we know?

Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes, including two to Rob Gronkowski, and the New England Patriots took control of the AFC East with a convincing 37-16 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday night.
After the Jets got within a score at 23-16 early in the fourth quarter, Brady coolly led the Patriots (6-3) down the field on an 84-yard drive that was capped by an 8-yard touchdown...
The last time that the Jets met the Patriots, they were in a really bad place. The Jets had just had two horrible losses and it looked as if they were going to have yet another disappointing, over-hyped season. But oh have the tides changed. The Jets are coming off of a beautiful beating of the Buffalo Bills. And the Patriots are coming off of two straight losses—which is something...
By Paul Kenyon Tom Brady hit Rob Gronkowski with a 18-yard touchdown pass with nine seconds left in the first half to lift New England to a 13-9 lead over the Jets at the break Sunday night at MetLife Stadium..
The Pats marched 80 yards in six plays after the Jets had scored the game's first touchdown with 1:20 left. A 23-yard pass from Brady to Gronkowski brought the ball into...
While New England hasn’t been lighting up the scoreboard in recent weeks, Brady’s fantasy production has been steady but unspectacular. Don’t expect things to change this week, as the Jets’ pass defense should hold him well under 300 yards passing. Anything more than 2 TDs would be a mild surprise.

Mark Sanchez is no Elite Eli.
Eli Manning showed last week how you beat the Patriots. Sanchez showed last night how you get humiliated by the Patriots while Tom Brady once again showed he is Tom Brady.
It wasn’t all of Sanchez’s fault, of course, this was a...
Many folks thought the New England Patriots were poised to lose three straight games for the first time in many moons on Sunday night.
They were limping into a game against the New York Jets, who had been playing well. And worse yet, star quarterback Tom Brady just hadn't looked quite like Tom Brady over recent weeks.
So much for all of that.
While the Jets have probably the...
Rob Gronkowski finished with 2 touchdowns against the Jets
Finally, the New England Patriots look back to form as they handled the New York Jets (5-4) Sunday night 37-16. The Patriots, who were being written off for their awful defense showed up Sunday night looking like the Pats that we are used to seeing. Here are a few things to take away from the game:
The Patriot’s Defense...
Rob Gronkowski caught his second touchdown pass from Tom Brady to give the New England Patriots a 23-9 lead through three quarters over the New York Jets in their AFC East showdown Sunday night.
Reports of the Patriots demise have been greatly exaggerated. Just when it looked as if it could all go from bad to worse, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady went all in. Brady (329 yds, 3 TDs) was unsteady early, but in the second half ,went unconscious, running the hurry up offense and wearing out the Jets defense.
Brady targeted Rob Gronkowski, as he racked up 8 rec, 113 yds, 2 TDs...
So many things happen during a season, and here comes a huge something. The New York Jets managed to climb out of a 2-3 hole to get 5-3, while the Patriots have lost their past two games to fall to 5-3. Both are tied with Buffalo for the lead in the division. This game will determine who gets to move on and who will just about go home.
Tom Brady has been in a mini slump, Bill...
