New England Patriots
The Patriots gave up a 50 yard touchdown pass to Chris Givens to open the game, that was the Rams only score of the day.Four Tom Brady touchdowns, two sacks, three quarterback hits and one interception later, Ryan Mallett was in the game for garbage time in the fourth quarter. Brady was 23/25 for 304 yards and those aforementioned four touchdowns. Stevan Ridley had 127 yards on 15 carries, adding another touchdown and a 41 yard run. While both Rob Gronkowski (eight catches, 146 yards two touchdowns) and Brandon Lloyd (2 catches, 28 yards, two touchdowns) had big days for the Patriots in London. Alfonzo Dennard added his fist career interception in the route.New England improves to 5-3 and holds first place in the AFC east heading into the bye. They pulled off the win without the help of notables such as Logan Mankins, Patrick Chung, Aaron Hernandez, Brandon Bolden and Steve Gregory. All of which sat out the game with injuries.

Tom Brady led touchdown drives on the Patriots' first five possessions Sunday and New England ran over the St. Louis Rams 45-7 in the NFL's annual regular-season game in London.
The Rams looked ready to put up a fight when Sam Bradford hit Chris Givens with a 50-yard touchdown pass on the first drive of the game. But that was about all the offense St. Louis could muster...
Rams receiver Chris Givens left Sunday's game versus New England with a toe injury but he returned later in the game.Fantasy Spin:Givens has a catch of 50 or more yards in five straight games, including a 50-yard TD strike in the first quarter Sunday against the Patriots.
QB Tom Brady
Brady has been a solid performer in terms of fantasy points the past few weeks, but he hasn’t really gone on a soul-crushing scoring binge since the Buffalo game. I think that trend could continue this week with several elements of the passing game nursing injuries. I think Brady puts up around 300 yards and two scores, but projecting anything more would be overly...
The New England Patriots had a mission for week 8: Get in, get the win, go home. Turns out, due to Hurricane Sandy, getting out was the hardest part. The Patriots took out a mediocre St. Louis Rams team, just like they should have to many of their opponents so far.Tom Brady, with a passer rating of 133, dominated the Rams defense. Rob Gronkowski appeared as though he was never...
Rams WR Chris Givens is a week 8 fantasy football sleeper.
Sometimes you need a fantasy gem to be successful. Here is a list of LestersLegends’ under the radar players that could possibly pull out a win for you in week eight.
Josh Freeman, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Freeman is averaging 374 yards and three touchdowns in his past two games. I don’t see him dropping anything...
If the Rams fans weren't constantly wishing that Brady got injured, it'd be easy to feel bad for them. At first they blame the refs, but after awhile they just indulge in the booze. This was a good beatdown of an inferior team, maybe the first complete game we've seen from the Patriots all year. The Rams were also ticked off that the Patriots were running up the score...

Hey, with so many Patriots fans ragging on an aging Brady, how about injecting a little youth to the position. Rondo did play QB in high school after all.
Now, as for Tom Brady as a point guard. I think he's got the vision but not really the athleticism. If the Celtics ran a purely half court offense and just let Tom...
The New England Patriots and St Louis Rams went overseas for the 2012 NFL International Series Game at Wembley Stadium in London. The English hadn’t seen such a forceful offensive onslaught since the Patriots whipped the Tampa Buccaneers in their last London appearance, 35-7 in 2009.
When Tom Brady and company were done with the Rams there was no doubt in anyone’s mind...
To those few who had the audacity to imagine that Sam Bradford could out-duel the great Tom Brady and his high power attack, try not to take it too hard. He's still got it and he's gonna keep on winning games. So stop dissing on that arm- he still looks like the quarterback who wins Super Bowls.Oh, and for the pundits who claimed that this game in London, England was not...
I learned two things while watching the Rams at a Dave & Busters with my family and a group of Rams fans. 1: The amount of time it takes for the D&B sensory overload to reduce my four-year-old son to be reduced to a quivering puddle of nerves and tears is approximately two hours. 2: The amount of time it takes for Tom Brady and the Patriots to do the same to the Rams defense...
Safety AwarenessBy now we’ve all seen the NFL’s commercial addressing player safety. It features Tom Brady answering the queries of a worried mother about how the NFL is improving safety, particularly for younger players. It is a clear PR move, attempting to soothe fears over head injuries and other such problems endemic to football. Perhaps it is slightly misleading in that...
While the trip to London was surely full of fun and games, Sunday was purely a business trip.
The Patriots dominated the Rams at Wembley Stadium, 45-7, moving to 5-3 at the midway point of their season.
Tom Brady put on a vintage performance for the London crowd, throwing four touchdowns and posting a season-high passer rating of 131.1.
Rob Gronkowski marched to the tune...
Four possessions, four touchdowns for the Patriots in the first half. New England leads St. Louis 28-7 at the break in London. Shane Vereen scored on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line to give the Pats a 14-7 lead. With 6:51 left in the second quarter, Tom Brady found Rob Gronkowski for a 7-yard touchdown. Gronk celebrated London style, by imitating a British Royal Guard march...
