Patriots’ Trickery Should Be Viewed Much Differently Than DeflateGate

DeflateGate, creative offensive concepts and Spygate. One of these things is not like the others. After another supposed cheating scandal, however, anything out of the norm that the New England Patriots unleash will be put under a microscope and undoubtedly will be lumped in with Spygate and DeflateGate. In fact, the creative offensive sets that helped the Patriots beat the Baltimore...

John Harbaugh’s Issue With Patriots’ Four-OL Set Should Be With Refs

Bill Belichick’s four-offensive lineman set wasn’t just innovative, it was genius.

Blowout Sunday: Streak of routs continues for Sunday Night Football, featured doubheader game

Technically, New England’s 42-20 victory over Indianapolis wasn’t as bad as some of the previous clunkers on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.” The Patriots only held a 14-10 lead at halftime.
