If two players are to be remembered from the final few minutes of last season's AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens, it's Sterling Moore and Billy Cundiff. Moore for knocking the ball out of Lee Evan's hands, and Cundiff for missing the field goal that would've tied up the game. In New England Wednesday, we saw one come in for a visit, and one...

The team with the best points differential in the league: The New England Patriots. Look out. They have a very easy schedule the rest of the way, host the Bills and Colts, going to the Jets and the Dolphins, hosing the Texans and the 49ers, going to Jacksonville, and hosting the Dolphins. As bad as they have been at nailing down leads in the 4th quarter...

Aqib Talib was traded to the New England Patriots on Thursday, capping what was one of the most quiet trade deadline periods in recent memory.
The terms of the deal between the Buccaneers and Patriots were not announced.
Talib is serving a four-game suspension for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drugs policy. He’s already sat out three games, but the Patriots are...
Trade for Patriots: I absolutely love this trade for the Patriots. They desperately need cornerback help. They have a few young cornerbacks, but none of them are playing well. Tom Brady is 35 so their Super Bowl window is closing. They need a short term solution so they don’t have to rely on developmental cornerbacks like Alfonzo Dennard, Kyle Arrington, and the recently released...
