FOX: The Patriots gained at least 350 yards for the 16th straight regular-season game, tying the St. Louis Rams of 1999-2000 for the most in NFL history. (Bottom of article) A.B. Everyone in New England seems to be down on the Patriots right now. The local radio stations are filled with calls about Tom Brady being too old, Belichick losing touch, the horrible secondary and even how quiet the crowds at Gillette Stadium have been. If you hadn’t watched any games you would assume the Pats were 0-7 with the way fans are talking. The Patriots won’t make the playoffs! The dynasty years are over! The sky is falling! Then come stats like this that fly under the radar. Doom & gloom certainly sells better, I can’t argue with that. But if you think about those Rams teams with Kurt Warner, Issac Bruce & Marshall Faulk – just to name a few – they were The Greatest Show On Turf. Tying that team offensively is pretty damn impressive. So let’s pump the brakes a little bit here Patriots Nati...

RG3 has funny misspeak during interview

Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III has proved to be a very mature, highly savvy young man that belies his age and experience, both on the field and off of it.

Devin McCourty's Fumble Stands Out, But His Leadership Was Far More Important in Patriots Win

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 anyway. McCourty had as eventful a day as you could expect from nearly any player in the NFL on Sunday, both good and bad. But in the end, it was the good that outweighed all else...

In The Red Zone – October 23

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.
