Sign on San Diego:
The New England Patriots have had the NFL's lowest-ranked defense almost all season. Now their offense is struggling, too.
BEST OF MAXIM
Patriots CB Devin McCourty was part of a resurgent defensive performance that held its own against the Giants… right up until the fourth quarter. In Sunday’s 24-20 loss to the G-Men, the Pats allowed QB Eli Manning to come all the way back and ruin the day. But what to make of its performance? Check out my video:
Arguably the best tight end in Patriots history (that is, until Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez came along), Ben Coates spent nine years in New England and was a favorite target for quarterback Drew Bledsoe. After being drafted in the fifth round of the 1991 NFL Draft, his first two years in Foxborough were uneventful.
But then, in 1993, the Patriots selected Drew Bledsoe with...
Tom Brady is becoming too reliant on Wes Welker and Rob Gronkowski, and the offense is struggling because of it.
Let's get something clear here for a moment: Despite being tied for the division lead at 5-3, the New England Patriots are still probably going to make the playoffs.

- The victory over the Eagles was an enormous win for this franchise, but this one was more impressive. Sure, the Patriots lost last week to the Steelers, but to me, that only makes the win more astounding. A Bill Belichick team losing two in a row is rare enough, but the fact that the Giants won in New England, where the Pats had won twenty straight regular season games (and 31...
For whatever reason, Eli will always be considered just an "OK" quarterback. Maybe it's because he is a contemporary of some very, very good quarterbacks—one of whom is his big brother—or maybe it's because he is kind of a doofus. Either way, here's your Sunday roundup. Enjoy. More »
