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 looks, eventually sends two men to blitz Schaub's blind side. Ninkovich moves from that side to the middle, fakes the blitz and drops into coverage. Schaub got confused, throws to a man that would've been free, and Ninko makes a great catch, and stops the drive dead. Tom Brady does his thing, and bang. Instead of potentially being 24-20, it's 31-13, and it's game.
This has definitely been Ninkovich's niche in the Patriots defense. He's been a playmaker, so much so that Bill Belichick called him the "Jet Killer" after causing and recovering the winning fumble i...

Patriots coach Bill Belichick is providing no update on injured tight end Rob Gronkowski.
Belichick said during a conference call Monday that he had nothing to add to his comments following New England's 41-28 win over the Houston Texans in a divisional playoff game Sunday. He said then he wasn't sure if Gronkowski had broken his arm.

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...
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

The New England Patriots have returned to the AFC Championship game this season, but their victory against the Houston Texans came at a heavy price. TE Rob Gronkowski will miss the remainder of the season after breaking his forearm, again. Various media outlets are reporting the injury, although the team has not issued any official announcement.
One source spoke the USA Today, confirming...
In his postgame conference yesterday, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady lauded his teams mental toughness. Here's the quote;
"Yeah. I think that’s been the mark of our team. We’ve won 11 of 12. We were down 31-3 at home and battled back. I think we’re going to be in it. We have a lot of tough guys, mentally tough guys. Whatever happens, like what happened on the first...
Patriots RB Shane Vereen and TE Aaron Hernandez had a breakout game vs the Texans Sunday in Foxboro. New England rolled 41-28 by leaning on these two key playmakers.

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...
This is pretty hilarious. It also features several Patriots, mainly Tom Brady.
My favorite Brady one is, "I'm White".

It’s weird. Without Rob Gronkowski and Danny Woodhead the Patriots and Tom Brady looked inconsistent passing the ball. Brady forced too many balls to Welker that bounced off his arm and Aaron Hernandez dropped a catch or two. Then I notice that Brady still threw for 344 yards and they scored 41 points.
Matt Schaub, Arian Foster, Daniel Manning and J.J. Watt all had really good...
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...
FOXBORO, Mass. — Tom Brady is something of an icon, even beyond the world of sports. The problem with that icon status, however, is that it isn’t always such a good thing.
During his weekly press conference leading up to Sunday’s AFC Championship Game, Brady fielded questions from the media on a variety of topics, including that of his off-field life.
Brady is known for his...

The Baltimore Ravens have what they wanted - another shot at the New England Patriots.
The AFC championship will feature the same teams from the year before for the first time in 25 years when the Patriots play the Ravens on Sunday in Foxborough, where New England has never lost with the Super Bowl on the line.
New England (13-4) won 23-20 last year after some late dramatics. Lee...
