Patriots Have To Hope Close Win Over Jets Was Result Of Fatigue

FOXBORO, Mass. — A win is a win, especially for the 2014 New England Patriots. The Patriots’ 27-25 victory over the New York Jets would have seemed like a breath of fresh air following last month’s 41-14 walloping at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Twitter Tuesday: Tom Brady shows his trust in two new targets

Tom Brady has always been slow to trust new receivers–see Chad Ochocinco and Danny Amendola–but it looks like he’s found a couple of new weapons worth throwing to. Both Brandon LaFell and Brian Tyms had some spectacular plays yesterday, and Brady showed his confidence in them by throwing the ball in their direction even when in double and triple coverage. If they can join Rob...
