Bill Belichick: Patriots Have To Control Andre Johnson, Frank Gore Vs. Colts

The NFL found something out last week that many were starting to doubt: Andre Johnson and Frank Gore still have some gas in the tank. The Indianapolis Colts wide receiver and running back put up some solid numbers in Indy’s 27-20 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday, as Gore rushed for 98 yards and a touchdown. In the receiving game, T.Y. Hilton put up a more impressive 88 yards...

Marchand: Bruins are ‘going to be a really good team’

BOSTON — The opening week of the 2015-16 NHL season has not been kind to the Boston Bruins.

Boston did benefit from Zdeno Chara’s return to the lineup Monday, but only after losing top-line winger Brad Marchand to a concussion two...

Red Sox Rotation Offseason Outlook: Will Boston Finally Land An Ace?

A lot happened in 2015. You’d just never know it by the overriding theme going into the offseason. The biggest critique of the Boston Red Sox entering last season was their lack of a true No. 1 starter. That skepticism was warranted, just as it’s fair to question Boston’s rotation six months later. The Red Sox still don’t have an ace and are coming off a campaign in which...

Bruins Practice Notes: Joe Morrow Battling Flu; B’s Hope To Bond Out West

WILMINGTON, Mass. — The Bruins’ upcoming jaunt through the Rocky Mountains and the Sonoran Desert could not have come at a better time. The team’s season-opening three-game homestand went about as poorly as possible, with the B’s dropping each contest and allowing an NHL-worst 16 goals in the process. The defense has been suspect, the goaltending less-than-stellar and...

Red Sox Catcher Offseason Outlook: Will Boston Leverage Enviable Depth?

The most underrated storyline of the Boston Red Sox’s upcoming offseason resides behind the dish.

ESPN’s Mike Sando ranked the 4-0 Patriots second among the league’s six unbeaten teams, falling only to the 5-0 Green Bay Packers. And if anything, the article only shows just how close these two teams are. Sando essentially gave the Packers the edge for their defense, which is fair. However...

Brad Marchand’s Injury Impacts Multiple Areas For Boston Bruins

Brad Marchand is an excellent player at a very affordable salary.
