New England Patriots
New York Giants
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The New England Patriots are 2-0, however, Patriots fans and others don’t feel too confident in their 2-0 start. After Tom Brady doesn’t look like, well, Tom Brady. In fact, he currently ranks 22nd in Total QBR rankings. For perspective, that ranks behind Terrelle Pryor, Jake Locker, EJ Manuel and Carson Palmer. Alsohe ranks one spot ahead of Eli Manning. But that ranking speaks more about the players around him than Brady himself.
He sure would love having, say, WR Danny Amendola and TE Rob Gronkowski back from injuries. As Pro Football Talk reports, Bill Belichick was asked about that in a conference call earlier today and merely responded by saying that Gronkowski and Amendola are “day-to-day.” While day-to-day may be a correct assumption for Gronkowski as he has been practicing regularly since the season began, it may be more optimistic for Amendola. Amendola was reported by Jay Glazer of FOX Sports as being out as much as six weeks due to a groin injury.

The post Rob Gronkowski...
The Patriots offense could certainly use a spark and it may have one in Rob Gronkowski.
Gronk is reportedly “50/50″ in his return to the gridiron this Sunday when the Pats host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It would be the tight end’s first game since re-breaking his arm against the Texans in the playoffs this past January. Gronk spent his fair share of the offseason on the operating...
Rob Gronkowski of New England Patriots progressing, will not guess on status - ESPN Boston:...
Oh, the irony of that caption
It's not uncommon for Patriots coach Bill Belichick to praise his upcoming opponents. As far as he's concerned, every team in the NFL has enough good players to win if his team doesn't play well.
Belichick continued to do that at his Monday morning conference call when asked about his next opponent: the 0-2 Tampa Bay Bucs. While most in...
Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski participated in practice Monday and could be back a week earlier than expected.Fantasy Spin:Given the state of the Patroits' receiving corps and the mental state of quarterback Tom Brady, the team appears to be doing everything they can to get "Gronk" back for the next game. His appearance would be a huge boost to the New England passing...
According to Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald, Patriots receiver Danny Amendola will not undergo surgery for a sports hernia.Fantasy Spin:Amendola has torn adductor muscles, which connect the hips to the legs, but the surgery would have kept him out 4-6 weeks. The oft-injured receiver is a long shot to play Week 4 but could be back Week 5.
Rob Gronkowski is missed. The Patriots’ anemic offense misses Gronk; New England fans miss Gronk, and you know that we at BC sure…
Bill Belichick never overlooks an opponent, whether they’re undefeated or winless — like the next team on the Patriots’ schedule.
The Buccaneers will visit Foxboro on Sunday, reeling from a pair of heartbreaking last-second losses. Greg Schiano‘s team has endured a rough start to the regular season, allowing late fourth quarter leads to slip away in both Week 1 and Week 2...
The return of the Gronk might be imminent.
Rob Gronkowski has missed the Patriots’ first two games this season, but he might finally be available for a return against the Buccaneers this weekend. The All-Pro tight end is 50/50 to return for the Patriots on Sunday, according to ESPN’s Ed Werder.
Gronkowski missed the entire preseason and the first two weeks of the regular season...
ESPN’s Ed Werder reported today that Rob Gronkowski has a 50-50 chance at playing this week for the Patriots.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, Gronk is closer to doubtful then questionable this week.
As we hear it, Gronk remains closer to doubtful, which under the NFL’s injury reporting rules means he has a 25-percent chance of playing. (For each of the team’s first two...
We mentioned during the week that Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola may miss 2-6 weeks with a groin injury.
According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Amendola could miss a month if he ends up having a sports hernia.
I reported Danny Amendola torn adductors but he’s gotten conflicting reports from docs on whether he has sports hernia or not. Getting more opinions today. He he...
Nothing new here.
Both in the fact that Danny Amendola is injured again. And in the fact that it was already reported that he would likely be out 2-6 weeks. A new report from Fox Sport's Jay Glazer has Amendola being out up to 4 weeks if he has surgery.
Glazer says Amendola may have a sports hernia. Tore an abductor. Surgery possible. Would take 3-4 weeks.— Nick Underhill...
According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Patriots receiver Danny Amendola has torn adductor muscles, which connect the hips to the legs.Fantasy Spin:Amendola also may need sports hernia surgery. Fantasy owners who drafted him knew the injury risk involved here but likely didn't expect to be dealing with it so soon into the season.

Darrelle Revis tormented the Patriots twice a season for five years — he didn’t play in either meeting in 2012 — so Bill Belichick is well aware of the type of talent he’ll be facing on Sunday. He’s just glad he’ll only have to see the Buccaneers’ star corner once.
“Well, at least we only have to play against him once, hopefully,” Belichick said on a conference...
