Patriots Defensive Drives vs. Dolphins
One of the best performances of the year, if not the best.
From the onset of training camp, the New England Patriots offensive line has been a work in progress, a mix of experience and youth that led to a handful of questions.
There's still uncertainty surrounding who's playing which position each week, but there's little doubt remaining about the level of protection provided to the quarterback.
After surrendering 12 sacks...
The Patriots’ offense keeps chugging along despite numerous injuries, and they might have lost one more player on Sunday against the Dolphins.
Julian Edelman left the game against Miami in the fourth quarter after injuring his foot. He was seen briefly leaving the locker room in a walking boot with crutches, according to Field Yates of ESPN. Edelman also suffered a concussion in...
Patriots Friday Q & A! Ask me anything!
That headline speaks volumes about the domination the New England Patriots have within their division. While they have run wild in the AFC East in the Belichick era and have an unbelievable division record of 60-19 in that span sometimes the individual games don’t always come that easy.
And that was the case once again in Miami in December. They should move Halloween to...
Game time: Sunday at 1 p.m. ET
The New England Patriots routinely dominate the AFC East, and this season is proving to be no different.
After their latest division victory turned into a laugher, the Patriots look to clinch their ninth East title in 10 seasons by beating the Miami Dolphins for a fifth consecutive time Sunday.
New England (8-3) is 28-6 in divisional play...
The Patriots didn’t put on their best performance of the season on Sunday, but it got the job done. And the result was a division title.
With a 23-16 win over the Dolphins in Miami, New England locked up their fourth straight division title and their ninth in the last 10 seasons. The win was a big one as it officially locked up a playoff spot for the now 9-3 Patriots — their...
Bill Belichick and the Patriots created Spygate. The New Orleans Saints created Bountygate. This week, The Sporting News’ David Whitley created Tattoogate.
As foolish as his column was on Colin Kaepernick‘s ink, Whitley certainly succeeded in gaining the attention he desired when he published his views of the 49ers quarterback breaking the mold of the clean-cut QB.
There was some talk that Sebastian Vollmer might not play based on how he was acting in pre-game warmups. He apparently took his helmet off in frustration and then walked off with offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia and the team's trainer. Worry no more though, Vollmer is active. And so is Julian Edelman.Patriots inactives: Gronk, Mankins, Jones, Shiancoe, Petrus, Develin...
Has the New England defense turned the corner or is this still a unit that should worry Pats fans?
Jason: You can still count me as concerned. The defense has been staked to early leads in the past two weeks and benefitted from several gift-wrapped turnovers, so we haven't seen what they can do in a close game when the pressure is really on and the other team isn'...
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the New England Patriots' divisional battle with the Miami Dolphins. Nick's take: The Patriots are pretty much unstoppable at this point, having scored 190 points combined in the last four games. And it's not just the offense. New England's defense and special teams have...
Jeff Howe's column in the Boston Herald this morning points out something very interesting about the Dolphins.They may be ranked seventh in the NFL against the run, but that doesn't tell the whole story.The Dolphins were excellent against the run in their first five games, and that’s why their place in the season-long pecking order is so high. They allowed 61.4 rushing...
