Every Point In Patriots-Raiders Game Scored By Player Named ‘-Kowski’

Bust out the kielbasa and pierogies. The Poles are taking over the NFL. OK, that’s a bit of an overstatement, but the Eastern European nation was quite well-represented in Sunday’s game between the New England Patriots and the Oakland Raiders. It all started when Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski got his team on the board with a first-quarter field goal. The Patriots responded...

Tom Brady: Patriots’ Offense Not In A Rhythm After 2-1 Start To Season

FOXBORO, Mass. — Tom Brady was in a better mood this week, even after his New England Patriots offense sputtered against the hapless Oakland Raiders. Brady, who was unusually down after last week’s 30-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings, is happy that his team is 2-1, and he must feel that his offense has room to grow after struggling in three straight games. Brady admitted that...

Julian Edelman: ‘I Gotta Play A Little Smarter’ As Patriots No. 1 Receiver

FOXBORO, Mass. — If the New England Patriots lose Julian Edelman, their offense might never see a first down again. That’s why it so scary to see the 5-foot-10, 200-pound receiver take hits that would leave players eight inches taller and 65 pounds heavier curling into a ball and begging for mercy. Edelman grinded through a 10-catch, 84-yard performance in the Patriots’ 16...

Red Sox Victims Of Instant Replay In Longest Review Of Season (Video)

The umpires took their time to the review the play, but they still didn’t get it right.

Vote: What Is The Biggest Reason For The Patriots’ Offensive Struggles?

The New England Patriots beat the Oakland Raiders Sunday, but it wasn’t pretty.

Joe Kelly Adding Positive Twist To Red Sox’s Otherwise Tough Situation

Joe Kelly is the freshman hanging out with the older kids. You could say he’s the Mitch Kramer of the Boston Red Sox.

It’s easy to forget that Kelly isn’t much older than Boston’s other young pitchers — he turned...
