New England Patriots @ Tennessee Titans
How will the Patriots beleaguered offensive line handle week 1?
The Patriots offensive line has been pretty solid in Tom Brady's career and is one reason he has been able to become one of the best. This offseason saw them lose Matt Light to retirement, and Brian Waters to a possible retirement/hold out. Not to mention that Logan Mankins is just now coming back from his ACL tear. Oh right, I forgot to mention that Dan Koppen the Pats longtime center was cut at the end of training camp. The starters read like this from left to right: Nate Solder (LT), Logan Mankins (LG), Ryan Wendell (C), Dan Connolly (RG), Sebastian Vollmer (RT). Vollmer is solid when he is healthy but that has been his issue. His back problems date back to college and have kept him out of most if not all the Patriots practices. Marcus Cannon, the backup right tackle, has had a rough training camp and could be a w...

Tom Brady made another little bit of NFL history on Sunday afternoon, as he passed another legend in the league's record book. The Patriots quarterback threw two touchdown passes in New England's 34-13 win, giving him 302 for his storied career. That number puts him ahead of another quarterbacking legend, John Elway, on the all-time passing touchdowns list. How does Brady...
Tom Brady was left with a bloody nose after being sacked by Kamerion Wimbley in the second quarter of Sunday’s Patriots-Titans game. Wimbley chased down Brady who was trying to escape the pressure by rolling to his right, and the linebacker clawed him with a paw that went through the facemask. Brady put his hand toward his nose immediately, knowing that he was hurt. Since that...

NASHVILLE -- The Tennessee Titans players elected their captains for this season and when head coach Mike Munchak announced the vote tally on Friday, one of the two on offense ended up being quarterback Jake Locker, who will make his first NFL start on Sunday at LP Field against New England.
Munchak, a Hall of Fame offensive lineman himself, did not minimize the significance for...
As if Tom Brady didn't have it good enough. The guy has multiple Super Bowl rings, a supermodel wife, millions in the bank, and a head of hair that makes Matt Hasselbeck green with envy. For those of you who still believe that life is fair and that nothing this good lasts forever, I’m sorry to inform you that things have actually gotten better for Brady in the last year...
The last time the Patriots had a legitimate No. 1 running back lurking in their backfield, Corey Dillon had just turned 30 years old and Tom Brady was closing in on his third Super Bowl title. Almost eight years later, Stevan Ridley has finally appeared to reinvigorate the Patriots lost art. In an offense where Brady has been the primary, secondary and tertiary focus -- almost since...
QB Tom Brady
Fantasy owners invested top dollar to get Brady in drafts and auctions, and for good reason. He’ll start to deliver on that investment this week, but it would be wise to temper expectations to 3 TDs and around 300 yards. The Titans could fall behind early, which might limit the number of pass attempts in the second half. However, if the Titans can hang around...
We clowned on Tom Brady for his goofy studio photos that NBC aired during the Super Bowl, but it’s obvious that whoever the network’s photographer is an old hand at inducing regrettable poses out of athletes. And so there is now Flirty Von Miller, gazing past his hipster glasses to ask you if you need help reaching that top shelf.
That was a mostly plodding first half. Apparently...
The AFC East will be one of the weakest divisions in 2012, with only the New England Patriots posing any kind of threat to go deep in the playoffs. However, even the Patriots will not be as dominant as they have been in years past due to a below average offensive line, a concept that was previously foreign to Tom Brady.Over the last decade, the formula for having success against...

Titans quarterback Jake Locker was under pressure most of the day Sunday as he gets sacked and stripped by Chandler Jones
The Patriots impressed on both offense and defense Sunday in their dominating win over the Titans Sunday. The offense looked like the well-oiled machine it was last year, lead by Tom Brady, who completed 23 of 31 pass attempts for 236 yards and 2 touchdowns, throwing...
