Boston.comTom Brady was named AFC offensive player of the Week after guiding the Patriots to a 52-28 victory at Buffalo last Sunday.The Patriots quarterback completed 22 of 36 passes for 340 yards against the Bills and threw three touchdown passes while rushing for another on a 4-yard run. After the Patriots fell behind 21-7 in the third quarter, Brady directed six second-half scoring drives, resulting in 45 second-half points, including 31 in the fourth quarter.This is the first time Brady's won the award this year. It was something he got with some regularity the past two years. It was easily Brady's best statistical performance of the year, as many fantasy owners can probably attest to.Perhaps most impressive is what he did in the second half, helping to lead the team to so many quick scores. Obviously, the running game also had a lot to do with that. Brady will have to replicate this performance next week against Peyton Manning and the Broncos. If this contest goes anyth...

Brady gave pep talk to JPMorgan CEO

Tom Brady may be a genius on the football field, but we have no idea about his financial acumen. Nonetheless, the New England Patriots quarterback has some friends in high places in Wall Street, and something tells us Brady will have no shortage of advice on how to take care of his money in retirement. Earlier this year, JPMorgan Chase infamously lost about $6 billion due to a trader...

Tom Brady has a few choice words for Buffalo Bills fans

On Sunday, Tom Brady was certainly amped up during the game against the Bills.  You can see how badly he wanted this game, especially after the Bills fans booed the referee for upholding the touchdown call.  It appears that Brady said “F*** you B****es,” and directed it towards the crowd.  He’s still not as bad as Philip Rivers.GIF via Gifulimination

Wes Welker says Tom Brady was cursing at him and Deion Branch

During the Patriots win over the Bills on Sunday, Tom Brady did something he rarely ever does — rushed for a touchdown. Brady’s knee touched the ground at almost the exact same time the ball crossed the plane, so the play was automatically reviewed as a scoring play. When the officials announced that the touchdown stood as called on the field, CBS showed Brady on the sidelines...

Auburn QB hoping for turnaround against Arkansas

Quarterback Kiehl Frazier spent much of Auburn's open date watching film of passers such as Chad Henne and Tom Brady trying to improve footwork and timing. Frazier says he thinks he'll ''look a lot different from LSU to Arkansas.'' He's certainly facing a more vulnerable defense with the Razorbacks giving up nearly 350 passing yards a game entering Saturday...

Tom Brady Personally Called J.P. Morgan's CEO After Rough Press Conference to Say 'Hang in There'

Tom Brady may be a genius on the football field, but we have no idea what his financial acumen is like. Nonetheless, the New England Patriots quarterback has some friends in high places in the financial world, if he ever wants to learn a thing or two about Wall Street. Then again, the history of athletes getting into the financial game isn't littered with success stories. Perhaps...

Denver Broncos News The Denver Broncos head back to Gillette Stadium to face the New England Patriots and I just can’t help to feel that we may just have a team that can compete with Tom Brady. [DenverBroncos.com] The tale of the tape is all about bowing down to the alter of Brady and the Patriots.  Barely worth the watch, but one must always remain objective. [NFL.com] Judging...

Wes Welker says Tom Brady was cursing at him and Deion Branch on the sideline

During this past Sunday’s win over the Buffalo Bills, the CBS Sports cameras caught Patriots quarterback cursing on the sidelines. Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker told WEEI’s Mut and Merloni that Brady’s cursing was aimed towards him and Deion Branch. “I think it was kind of directed at, towards me and Deion (Branch) a little bit,” Welker said, via the Boston Globe. “We...

Patriots Offensive Line 'Met the Challenge' Against Bills, Turning Pats Offense Into Balanced Attack

Tom Brady, Stevan Ridley and Rob Gronkowski all received their fair share of time celebrating in the end zone in Buffalo on Sunday, but it was the guys up front who really deserve the credit for the Patriots success. New England's offense erupted for 45 second half points against the Bills, the single most productive half of football in the NFL in more than 40 years. Yet, none...

Much-maligned defense delivers for New England

As explosive as New England's offense was during its second-half surge against Buffalo on Sunday, the Patriots defense might have been the ringleader for the quick turnaround. While quarterback Tom Brady was busy orchestrating another patented comeback, leading the offense to 580 total yards of offense and 45 second-half points, New England's defense actually ignited the...

Pats buck their own trends in win over Bills

The New England Patriots have made some uncharacteristic plays this season. Fumbles, penalties, missed kicks, dropped passes and bad offensive play calling contributed to the Patriots 1-2 start. With their backs on the wall, down 21-7 at Buffalo, the Pats needed to make some plays we aren't used to seeing the 2012 team make. New England did that, and the Patriots are now 2-2...

The Fantasy Football Chameleon – Week 5 For 2012 Fantasy Football

As we all dwell on leaving Brian Hartline on our bench or Waiver Wire, let us not forget that he was playing with a rookie QB against a defense that had shut down Tom Brady and Michael Vick in back to back weeks. Let us also not forget that going into Sunday, Hartline had only made more than 5 receptions in a game once in his 3-year career. And finally, let us not forget to get an...
