Found October 28, 2012 on Kissing Suzy Kolber:
Despite the NFL’s best efforts to disappoint its lusted after international market, this year’s game in London actually has a fairly even matchup for once. Even if said game, as Peter King noted, deprives the baseball obsessed people of St. Louis a chance to see Tom Brady play in their town. I’m sure they’ll get over it. On Saturday, Gronk got to show the Brits what true American bros are all about. Whereas most people would be tempted to drop the mic to have their moment, Gronk does his signature spike with it. Still surprised he didn’t make any mention of asking Jeff Fisher for mustache rides before all is said and done. Speaking of Brits embracing the NFL, I recently got the chance to read Adam Goldstein’s “Tailgate to Heaven”. Goldstein, who grew up embracing American football in London amid the hooligan scandals that plagued soccer in England in the late ’80s, left his job and sold his condo in 2008 to fund his dream: a whirlwind trip through the U.S. during which he planned t...

Brady, Patriots rout Rams 45-7 at Wembley

Tom Brady led touchdown drives on the Patriots' first five possessions Sunday and New England ran over the St. Louis Rams 45-7 in the NFL's annual regular-season game in London. The Rams looked ready to put up a fight when Sam Bradford hit Chris Givens with a 50-yard touchdown pass on the first drive of the game. But that was about all the offense St. Louis could muster...

Brady, Patriots roll in London

Fantasy Forecast: Week 8

QB Tom Brady Brady has been a solid performer in terms of fantasy points the past few weeks, but he hasn’t really gone on a soul-crushing scoring binge since the Buffalo game. I think that trend could continue this week with several elements of the passing game nursing injuries. I think Brady puts up around 300 yards and two scores, but projecting anything more would be overly...

Brady gives Britain a show in blowout win

The New England Patriots had a mission for week 8: Get in, get the win, go home. Turns out, due to Hurricane Sandy, getting out was the hardest part. The Patriots took out a mediocre St. Louis Rams team, just like they should have to many of their opponents so far.Tom Brady, with a passer rating of 133, dominated the Rams defense. Rob Gronkowski appeared as though he was never...

Comments from the other side - Rams 10/28

If the Rams fans weren't constantly wishing that Brady got injured, it'd be easy to feel bad for them. At first they blame the refs, but after awhile they just indulge in the booze. This was a good beatdown of an inferior team, maybe the first complete game we've seen from the Patriots all year. The Rams were also ticked off that the Patriots were running up the score...

What if the Celtics and Patriots switched?

Credit to CelticsLife's one and only EK on the pic. Hey, with so many Patriots fans ragging on an aging Brady, how about injecting a little youth to the position. Rondo did play QB in high school after all. Now, as for Tom Brady as a point guard. I think he's got the vision but not really the athleticism. If the Celtics ran a purely half court offense and just let Tom...

Brady, Gronk and Ridley Lead Patriots to Jolly Good Time

The New England Patriots and St Louis Rams went overseas for the 2012 NFL International Series Game at Wembley Stadium in London.  The English hadn’t seen such a forceful offensive onslaught since the Patriots whipped the Tampa Buccaneers in their last London appearance, 35-7 in 2009.  When Tom Brady and company were done with the Rams there was no doubt in anyone’s mind...

New England Patriots Destroys Rams In Old England: Hero & Zero of the Game

To those few who had the audacity to imagine that Sam Bradford could out-duel the great Tom Brady and his high power attack, try not to take it too hard. He's still got it and he's gonna keep on winning games. So stop dissing on that arm- he still looks like the quarterback who wins Super Bowls.Oh, and for the pundits who claimed that this game in London, England was not...

London Burning: Patriots lay waste to the Rams

I learned two things while watching the Rams at a Dave & Busters with my family and a group of Rams fans. 1: The amount of time it takes for the D&B sensory overload to reduce my four-year-old son to be reduced to a quivering puddle of nerves and tears is approximately two hours. 2: The amount of time it takes for Tom Brady and the Patriots to do the same to the Rams defense...

The Hollow Mockery Week 8 Part I: Perpetual Revolution

Safety AwarenessBy now we’ve all seen the NFL’s commercial addressing player safety. It features Tom Brady answering the queries of a worried mother about how the NFL is improving safety, particularly for younger players. It is a clear PR move, attempting to soothe fears over head injuries and other such problems endemic to football. Perhaps it is slightly misleading in that...

Week 8 Risers and Fallers: Patriots Take Care of Business Across the Pond

While the trip to London was surely full of fun and games, Sunday was purely a business trip. The Patriots dominated the Rams at Wembley Stadium, 45-7, moving to 5-3 at the midway point of their season. Tom Brady put on a vintage performance for the London crowd, throwing four touchdowns and posting a season-high passer rating of 131.1. Rob Gronkowski marched to the tune...

Patriots head into bye week, Celtics open 2012-13 season

The Patriots will head into the bye week coming off of their first complete 60-minute game of the season in their 45-7 win over the Rams in London. Tom Brady played his best game of the year, and the defense finally generated some pressure on the opposing quarterback by blitzing for the first time this year. This will definitely be one of the talking points during the bye week of...

Halftime: Pats 28, Rams 7

Four possessions, four touchdowns for the Patriots in the first half. New England leads St. Louis 28-7 at the break in London. Shane Vereen scored on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line to give the Pats a 14-7 lead. With 6:51 left in the second quarter, Tom Brady found Rob Gronkowski for a 7-yard touchdown. Gronk celebrated London style, by imitating a British Royal Guard march...
