The ankle of Aaron Hernandez will prevent him from playing in Week 4. The Patriots will be without the tight end when they play the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Hernandez may be able to practice next leading up to next weekends game against Denver though playing in Week 6 against Seattle may be more realistic. During Hernandez’s absence the Patriots will have to focus on Brandon Lloyd, Wes Welker and Rob Gronkowski. Veteran tight end Kellan Winslow asked for his release and was granted it after one week with the team. Winslow caught one pass in the teams loss at Baltimore. Winslow has played in 93 games with 80 starts and has 438 receptions for 4,848 yards and 23 touchdowns.

Billboard tells Buffalo hotels not to give Tom Brady a room (Picture)

A negative comment Tom Brady made and apologized for in February about Buffalo hotels has been creatively rehashed by some folks in the city. Speaking about the support he’s received from his father throughout his career, Brady said at the Super Bowl in February that his dad would even make road trips to watch him play the Bills. That’s when he got in his jab. “I don’t...

You Make Your Own Luck: Patriots 52, Bills 28

There were time yesterday, where I felt like I had stumbled into some alternate universe.  The Patriots were trailing 21-7 in the second half to the Bills and inching dangerously close to a 1-3 record, which would have essentially put them three games behind the Bills with tie-breakers in the race for the AFC crown.  At that point, we had already witnessed a fumble by Gronkowski...

In a Tale of Two Halves, Patriots Shred Bills 52-28

The New England Patriots played their favorite whipping boy of the Bill Belichick era the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park NY.  The problem was in the first half Buffalo looked anything like whipping boys. The Bills were able to stymie the Patriots offense for a little over 30 minutes on Sunday.  After a quick start and a Stevan Ridley 6-yard run...

Ed Reed Fined $21,000 for Smashing Deion Branch During Ravens' Win Over Patriots

Deion Branch was cool with the call. The referees were not. Soon after Ravens safety Ed Reed steamed across the field and blasted Branch hard with his shoulder in Sunday night's Baltimore win, Branch and Reed could be seen talking with each other and smiling on the field. Branch appeared to be saying he was fine with the hit, even as the referees threw a penalty flag at Reed...

Vote: What Is the Most Important Battle in This Week’s Patriots-Bills Game?

The Patriots are under .500 for the first time in a while, and they'd like to do something about that on Sunday. Tom Brady and the Patriots head to Buffalo this week, where the 2-1 Bills are waiting. In their first meeting last season in Week 3, the Bills won 34-31 behind a strong performance by quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and 17 fourth-quarter points. It was a poor showing...

Tom Brady tells Buffalo and the haters to screw off

(via Deadspin) This was after Brady’s run into the end-zone to tie the game so we have to wonder who he was saying ” ‘eff off” to. Was it the Buffalo fans who were saying mean things about his wife and mommy? Was it the CBS and NFL crews who were questioning the Patriots and their young team? Was it Josh McDaniels who Brady got into a minor war of words with during the second...
