New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady recently took his son (Benjamin) and dog for a stroll around the block.

Tom Brady Says Defeat to 49ers Made Him Feel ‘Like You Haven’t Won a Game in Three Years’

FOXBORO, Mass. — Nobody likes to lose. But Tom Brady hates it more than anyone else. For a guy who has only experienced 45 losses, including in the playoffs, in 12 NFL seasons as a starter, Brady doesn’t have to deal with the feeling nearly as often as others. But given his heightened competitive nature, and his utter disdain for the feeling associated, the sting seems to last...

In The Red Zone – December 18

The Sunday night game in Foxboro was certainly a roller coaster for both teams and their fanbases but it was San Francisco fans who got to enjoy the last ride at the fair when they came away with a 41-34 win over New England at Gillette Stadium. A few things stand out from loss to the 49ers. ► The weather.  It was miserable for both sides and it had a definite effect on...

If you pay close enough attention you’ll find that, just like the rest of the NFL, the Patriots are comprised of a whole bunch of humans. For all the blowouts and ridiculous stats that make them seem like unstoppable aliens at times, there are games – or halves, in the case of this past Sunday night – where they come back down to Earth. It doesn’t happen very often, which...
