Indianapolis at New England Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET, at Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Mass. - TV: CBS; DirecTV: 711 *TV announcers: Kevin Harlan, Solomon Wilcots *Keys to the game: Interim head coach Bruce Arians sees this as a major litmus test for the young Colts in terms of how they handle an elite opponent on the road. Rookie QB Andrew Luck has shown a tendency to force more passes on the road, where he has two touchdowns, seven interceptions and a 66.2 passer rating. Indianapolis has 30-plus rushing attempts in five of its six victories, but that typically is a result of playing from ahead. It will be inherent upon Luck to make quick reads against Patriots coach Bill Belichick's scheme, and keep putting points on the board because New England can run away and hide in a blink. The Colts are banking on three extra days of rest to help after six starters sat out their Week 10 win. But while the Colts are allowing a respectable 350.6 yards per game, they haven't played a...

Patriots veering away from sets with two tight ends

It wasn't long after the New England Patriots drafted two top-flight tight ends in the second and fourth rounds of the 2010 draft that we saw the terrific advantages this gave the Pats on the offensive end of the football. Their two-TE sets were seemingly impossible for defenses to stop as Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez were too big for cornerbacks and too quick for linebackers...

Ways Bill Parcells' recent comments sound like those of a Patriots homer

Bill Parcells hasn't been a part of the New England Patriots organization since 1996, but when asked about the state of the Pats on Monday he had some very optimistic comments about the team and his old pal head coach Bill Belichick. Maybe Parcells was just trying to be positive to not ruffle any feathers, but some of the things he said highly resemble what many of us hear from...

Just What Is A “Produced” Touchdown?

This drab little note in Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback column this week has provided considerable fodder for the likes of Felger of Mazz. Opposing passers have produced more touchdowns than Tom Brady, 19-18. This is just a weird sentence. “Produced more touchdowns?” What is the definition he’s using here?  Solely passing TD’s? If we’re going by strictly ...

Buffalo Bills Lose to New England Patriots: Hero and Zero of the Game

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots sit comfortably atop the AFC East after edging the Buffalo Bills 37-31 in a Week 10 matchup between division rivals.

Fred Jackson out against the Dolphins

According to reports out of Buffalo, runningback Fred Jackson will not play Thursday night against Miami.  Jackson suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss against the New England Patriots.

Reggie Wayne’s Presence Essential to Andrew Luck’s Rapid Development, Colts’ Unexpected Success This Season

Every great quarterback needs a great receiver to rely on during their early development.
