Stevan Ridley couldn't get anything going Sunday against the Seahawks. The New England halfback finished the day with only 34 yards on 16 carries.Fantasy Spin:Seattle's run defense is one of the strongest in the league and it didn't take long for the Patriots to figure that out. New England abandoned the run game early resulting in a season-high 58 passing attempts for quarterback Tom Brady. Ridley should have a better game next week against the Jets, especially if Brandon Bolden (running back) is unable to go.
BEST OF MAXIM
New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker got the stuffing knocked out of him during Sunday's game in Settle versus the SeahawksAlthough Welker definitely appeared shaken up on the play, the diminutive wideout still ended up with 10 catches, 138 yards and one touchdown. Despite his heroics the Patriots lost the game, 24-23, after surrendering two touchdowns with under eight...
The New England Patriots lost three players Sunday,
including wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, during their loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Lloyd’s shoulder injury isn’t expected to be serious, reports Jeff Howe of the
Wide receiver Brandon Lloyd left late, but it didn’t appear to be anything
concerning. That will need to be monitored going forward...
Wes Welker has led the NFL in receptions since 2007, but will Julian Edelman take his spot next season?Everyone knows Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker is unhappy with the Pats for the way they have been treating their contract negotiations with him. This past weekend, Welker went as far to say it felt good to “stick it to Bill” after he contributed 13 receptions for 104 yards...

The Seahawks came back to beat to beat the Patriots 24-23 on Sunday, much to the delight of Richard Sherman. Sherman, a second-year corner from Stanford, intercepted Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the third quarter. His teammate, safety Earl Thomas, turned the trick in the fourth quarter. The two picks plus the team’s comeback prompted Sherman to gloat about beating Brady through...
New England QB Tom Brady threw a season-high two interceptions and turned in his lowest QB rating of the year Sunday in a one-point loss to the Seahawks.Fantasy Spin:Despite the uneven performance, Brady still managed to throw for 300 yards passing, the fourth time he's been able to accomplish that in his last five starts.
The New England Patriots are just 3-3 and the poor play of their secondary is a big reason.
Only four teams have allowed more yards passing than the Patriots after they gave up completions of 51, 50 and 46 yards in a 24-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks Sunday.
That continues a trend in which the Patriots allowed the second most yards passing in the NFL last season - even though...
New England strong safety Patrick Chung injured his shoulder late in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. He did not return.Fantasy Spin:Chung has 26 tackles for the Patriots in 2012. Sterling Moore would likely serve as Chung's replacement if he ends up missing any games.
The New England Patriots and New York Giants have more in common than just playing each other in exciting Super Bowls. They also have a knack at getting bit by the injury bug and having key players wind up on the weekly NFL Injury Report. For Week 6 of the 2012 NFL season, things are no different, as Aaron Hernandez, Wes Welker and Hakeem Nicks are all game time decisions, but are...
How are we all feeling this Monday? Stupid question. Every New England Patriots fan is feeling pretty pissed right now. After a very promising 2 game win streak, we've been rocked by this defeat to the Seattle Seahawks. I came out of last weeks win vs the Denver Broncos uneasy due to our 4th quarter struggles. This resurfaced during the whole second half. This was not the Patriots...
Check out the video below of Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker getting rocked by Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner.
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner put a MONSTER hit on New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker on Sunday afternoon.
Check it out:
That's the life of a slot receiver, and it makes you respect Welker's incredible production (especially given his 5'9", 185-pound frame) that much more. It's also why receivers like Austin Collie and Laurent...

This isn't going to be an easy win. On offense, the Patriots have scored more points than any other team in the league, and they're in the top ten in passing and rushing yardage, although it's primarily the threat of their passing attack that's kept their run game effective. The Seahawks have a top five defensive unit, but if they want to be known as one of the...
