Found October 01, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:

This weekend when the Patriots undrafted rookie free agent RB Brandon Bolden rushed 16 times for 137 yards and a touchdown in the team’s Week 4 win over the Bills, he gave us all a bit of hope.  All of us playing fantasy football that need a running back because one of our guys are injured. Bolden looked very good and ran extremely hard. He  also chipped in 11 yards on a reception. Bolden’s season-high for touches was five entering this game, so the monster fantasy effort essentially came out of nowhere. A mediocre talent but tough runner who soaks up blocked-open yardage, Bolden has earned serious consideration in fantasy circles. We’re just concerned he won’t be as big a part of the regular game plan moving forward. Bolden looks as if he is ahead of Shane Vereen who was only given the ball one time this week and didn’t gain a yard.  Bolden is a solid pick up for week 5.

Call the authorities, the Patriots have lost a former second-round pick. For the third week in a row, second-year cornerback Ras-I Dowling was largely missing from the Patriots' defensive gameplan.

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...

Patriots Offense Takes Care Of Bills, Team Returns To .500

Rob Gronkowski and Wes Welker celebrate after a 2nd half touchdown – 6 of the 45 points that New England scored in the 2nd half of their 52-28 win over Buffalo. The Patriots panic? Yeah, right. “Panic” is probably one of the words on the list that nobody in the New England locker room ever uses. Even a Week 4 game at 1-2 in Buffalo, where they were stunned last year, is no...

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.

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 Josh McDaniels who Brady got into a minor war of words with during the second...
