Tom Brady: Rob Gronkowski’s One-Handed Catch Was One Of Greatest He’s Seen

Tom Brady knows a thing or two about sensational catches. The New England Patriots quarterback has been blessed with some incredibly talented receivers over the years, which has made for some incredible catches. One on Sunday, however, immediately jumps toward the top of the list. Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski made a ridiculous one-handed catch in the third quarter of the Patriots’...

Broncos’ Chris Harris Jr.: It Will Be ‘Different Game’ When Patriots Go To Denver

Peyton Manning ready to look forward Sunday night, but one of his Denver Broncos teammates was more than willing to do so.

Sunday afternoon, the Boston Bruins announced that head coach Claude Julien will be in Boston for a long time after signing a multi-year contract extension.

Nik Wallenda Completes Daring Tightrope Walks Between Chicago Buildings (Video)

Daredevil tightrope walker Nik Wallenda went high above the streets of Chicago on Sunday evening and set two world records in the process. Wallenda, who became the first person to cross the Grand Canyon on a high wire in June 2013, followed up his act with two daring walks between Chicago buildings. The first walk he took was at a 15 degree incline, the steepest walk he has ever...

Fantasy Football: Jeremy Hill, Philip Rivers Among Week 9 Studs, Duds

The unpredictable NFL has struck yet again. With more than half the season in the season in the books, you thought you had it figured out. DeMarco Murray was a lock for 100 yards and a touchdown every game, Philip Rivers was good for 20 fantasy points a week and Jerick McKinnon was the back of the future in Minnesota. Then Week 9 rolls around, and Ryan Tannehill and Jeremy Hill...

Akeem Ayers, Patrick Chung Among Patriots’ Unlikely Defensive Heroes

FOXBORO, Mass. — The New England Patriots’ pass defense ranking might take a hit after Sunday’s 43-21 win over the Denver Broncos, but sometimes, as Bill Belichick once succinctly put it, “stats are for losers.” The Patriots walloped the Broncos, and their defensive performance was spearheaded by newcomers to head coach Bill Belichick’s squad. Cornerback Darrelle Revis...

Peyton Manning Takes Blame For Julius Thomas’ Quiet Night Vs. Patriots

FOXBORO, Mass. — The New England Patriots’ star tight end went off Sunday at Gillette Stadium. His Denver Broncos counterpart? Not so much. Though Julius Thomas did come down with a touchdown catch in the Broncos’ 43-21 loss, he finished with just two receptions for 33 yards and was not targeted once in the first half. That’s not the way it’s supposed to be, said quarterback...

Patriots, Broncos Not Bothered By Mother Nature As Morning Storm Fades

FOXBORO, Mass. — Another Snow Bowl? Hardly. Though the white stuff swirled Sunday morning in Foxboro, the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos kicked off their 4:25 p.m. matchup under sunny skies. That’s not to say it was a beautiful fall day at Gillette Stadium — temperatures dipped into the low 40s, with steady winds — but the elements ultimately played a rather minor...

Are the Patriots the best team in the NFL?

The only reason that the New England Patriots’ 43-21 win over the Denver Broncos seemed even remotely close was because Peyton Manning was on the other side of the huddle. There’s always a chance that Manning can come back — even down three scores with 6:13 to go in the fourth quarter, Patriots fans were halfway on their seats thinking, “Is it safe? Is it safe to beat the...

Peyton Manning ‘Stinks’ As Tom Brady Claims Decisive Victory In Rivalry

FOXBORO, Mass. — The differences between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning were even evident in their postgame press conferences Sunday.

Colin Kaepernick’s Fumble On Goal-Line QB Sneak Dooms 49ers (GIF)

A quarterback sneak gone wrong gave the San Francisco 49ers a gut-wrenching loss Sunday. The 49ers trailed 13-10 but had the ball at the St. Louis Rams’ 1-yard line on third-and-goal with nine seconds left in the game. That’s when Colin Kaepernick tried to sneak into the end zone for the potential winning touchdown — but forgot to take the ball with him. The Rams recovered...

Rob Gronkowski Continues To Demolish Defenses As Patriots Roll Again

FOXBORO, Mass. — It now is safe to declare Rob Gronkowski 100 percent healthy. Gronkowski was an absolute offensive force for the New England Patriots on Sunday, catching nine passes for a team-high 105 yards and a touchdown in a 43-21 win over the Denver Broncos. Between that performance and his similarly dominant showing in last week’s rout of the Chicago Bears, the tight...

Julian Edelman Bounces Back With Stellar Performance In Patriots’ Win

FOXBORO, Mass. — The Denver Broncos obviously aren’t dedicated listeners to the hot-sports-take stylings of WEEI’s “Dennis & Callahan.” If they were, they would have known that Tom Brady and the New England Patriots planned to get wide receiver Julian Edelman more involved in the offense after two games with two drops apiece. After dropping passes in consecutive games...
