While Patriots safety Derrick Martin was on the sideline watching his team get stomped by the Baltimore Ravens this past Sunday, two masked men invaded his Colorado home and made away with ”numerous items of value.”
The 27-year old Martin wasn’t active for Sunday’s game but was still present on the sidelines in Foxboro as several family members and friends, including children, watched the game from Martin’s home in Aurora, CO. Aurora police said that the two armed robbers forced their way into the home and fled with goods but nobody was hurt and no threats were made.
With the two suspects wearing masks, the police are struggling to find a description of the men. They’re also not clear if Martin was a target or it was a random home invasion.

AURORA, Colo. — Two masked men robbed the suburban Denver home of New England Patriots defensive back Derrick Martin while he was with his team at the AFC championship game.
Aurora police spokesman Frank Fania told The Denver Post that the robbers forced their way into Martin’s home Sunday night when there was at least one adult and several children there.
He says they took...
Over the next two weeks, the media will spend a tremendous amount of time focusing on Ray Lewis and the final chapter of his career with the Baltimore Ravens. Since the 13-time Pro Bowler announced that he will retire after the season, the Ravens have appeared to play with more urgency. However, he is hardly the only reason Baltimore is headed to New Orleans for Super Bowl 47.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The Ravens are doing just that.
Coach John Harbaugh said the Ravens will be keeping Jim Caldwell as offensive coordinator for next season. Since Caldwell has taken over, the Ravens are 4-2 and are in the Super Bowl. Joe Flacco also looks like an entirely different quarterback.
Additionally, the Ravens hired Eagles former defensive coordinator...
Jim and John Harbaugh have exchanged a handful of text messages, and they plan to leave it at that. No phone conversations necessary while the season's still going. No time for pleasantries, even for the friendly siblings. There is work to be done to prepare for the Super Bowl, prepare for each other, prepare for a history-making day already being widely hyped as ''Harbowl.''
Chalk up another loss for the Patriots and chalk up another Patriot wife who is having a hard time coping. The New England Patriots were manhandled by the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship game on Sunday and it didn’t take long for the Patriot family to respond. Anna Burns Welker, the wife of Patriot [...]
With the Ravens hanging on to an 8 point lead the very first play of the 4th quarter was one of the key plays in the game. At these times in the game is when Tom Brady makes his living being known as one of the most clutch QB’s of all time, but instead on this drive was cut short. The Patriots decide to run the ball with Ridley, who rips off 8 yards, but gets hit helmet-to-helmet...
FOXBORO, Mass. — The last ride isn’t over just yet.
The retirement clock on Route 93 in Boston may have run out, but Ray Lewis’ retirement tour was extended Sunday night after he and the Ravens defeated the Patriots 28-13 at Gillette Stadium.
The victory couldn’t have been more perfect, as the Ravens made up for for last year’s shortcomings and finally overcame their woes...
After defeating the Patriots in the AFC Championship on Sunday, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs didn't hold any harsh words back. He continued to gloat in his team's win while insulting the Pats and telling them to have fun at the Pro Bowl. This was a classless act. The thrill of victory caught up to Suggs and he received a fair amount of backlash for the disrespectful...
One of the most controversial plays of Sunday’s AFC Championship game came at the end of the second quarter when Tom Brady scrambled out of the pocket and slid cleats high into Ravens safety Ed Reed. Not only did the slide look to be a dirty, unsportsmanlike play by Brady, it was resulted in a case of terrible time management that might have cost the Pats seven points at the end...
This probably goes without saying, but even before Anna Burns Welker took to Facebook, there has been a simmering, mutual distaste between us Marylanders and our New England brethren. We think they're arrogant, entitled jerks and they think we're whiny, in-your-face upstarts. The perfect recipe for a rivalry in any sport.However, with the success of both region's...
If you shuddered a little after watching Stevan Ridley take a brutal hit from Bernard Pollard and immediately lose consciousness on Sunday night, you probably weren’t alone. However, the realities of the injury are much more cringe-worthy than even the image of watching Ridley suddenly go limp.
According to Bleacher Report, Ridley immediately exhibited what is known as the “fencing...
