When Rob and Dan Gronkowski aren't making their presence felt on the gridiron, they're making their presence felt in the community. The brothers recently spent the day at an elementary school in Scituate, R.I., where they threw on fire suits in an effort to teach students about fire safety. When they were done there, they stopped by the local fire company to help hand out new Patriots license plates. NESN's Dara McIntosh caught up with the tight end duo after their eventful day, where each expressed their desire to give back to the community and discussed the Patriots' upcoming matchup...

Gronkowski brothers spend day in Rhode Island pitching fire safety

Patriots tight ends Rob and Dan Gronkowski spent a good part of their day off earlier today teaming up with Hope Jackson volunteer firefighters in order pitch fire safety to several Rhode Island communities.

Patriots DL Shaun Ellis bruised his ribs vs. the Steelers, may miss some time

For those who missed it last night, a quick injury update having to do with the Patriots defense. It’s not a major one, which is probably good news.

This has kinda gone under the radar, considering the Patriots were on the road in Pittsburgh this weekend. But it’s worth noting that plenty of players returned home to places that weren’t their homes. Thanks to snow and power outages all across the Foxboro area (and in places like North Andover, right), a ton of players are actually staying in a nearby hotel, rather than their...

Patriots' Defense Due to Improve Against Weak Opponents, But Real Solutions Will Be Hard to Find

In 2007, the Patriots had the best offense in the history of football, but it wasn't enough to win the Super Bowl. They've since maintained an incredibly potent offense while mixing in a suspect defense, and the result has been zero postseason victories for three seasons. After Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers tore apart the Patriots for the bulk of Sunday afternoon, concerns...

Eli Manning showing everyone he's in Brady's class

Eli Manning created some waves this summer putting himself in the same class with Tom Brady in a radio interview. It was instant tabloid material. How could Manning be in the same elite class with Brady? Eli had only won one Super Bowl compared to Brady's three, and the New York Giants were entering this season after missing the playoffs a very un-Brady-like two straight years...

Patriots humbled by surging Steelers
