Patriots still looking to trade for wide receiver, potentially for Hakeem Nicks?

(Jim McIsaac/Getty Images) The New England Patriots put together an amazing comeback in the final seconds yesterday. That doesn't mean they still don't have their problems. With Rob Gronkowski still yet to be cleared to play and Danny Amendola just suffering a big concussion, they are yet again down to the bottom of the barrel at the receiver position. Instead of relying...

ESPN: Saints win!

In his post-game press conference last night, Bill Belichick jokingly apologized to reporters who may have had to change their stories last-minute thanks to the late game drama orchestrated by Tom Brady. Apparently ESPN didn't get the memo that Tom Brady is still one of the most clutch quarterbacks in NFL history: Get it together ESPN. Never count Brady and the Pats out...

Jimmy Graham shut down by Talib and Pats defense

Coming into Sunday's game against the Patriots, Jimmy Graham was an unstoppable force at tight end. In five games, he had already racked up 37 receptions, 593 yards, and six touchdowns. He was not able to add to any of those totals in Foxborough, as he was shut down entirely by Aqib Talib and others when Talib went down with a hip injury. Talib has been making a name for himself...

Ring Envy: What Saints fans said - 10/13/13

The New Orleans Saints lost a heartbreaker in the final seconds to the Patriots. Unfortunately, Saints fans aren't as funny as some of the other fanbases the Pats have defeated recently.

Video: Tom Brady's game winner to Kenbrell Thompkins

Who would've thought? Tom Brady isn't dead after all. After going 4 and out, and then throwing a deep interception, the notion was entering everyone's minds that maybe Brady wasn't as good as he's always been. Maybe the team can't rely on Tom Brady to win games for the team in the end anymore. While SOME of that might be true, none of it was true today. Tom...

Belichick's Fourth Down Gamble Pays Off

AP Photo/Steven Senne Down 24-23 with 2:50 left in the fourth quarter, Bill Belichick made what is sure to be one of the most discussed decisions of Week 6. He opted to go for it on 4th and 6 from the 24, rather than punting and giving the ball back to Drew Brees and the Saints. When Aaron Dobson dropped Tom Brady's pass, most assumed that the game was over. Then a funny thing...

Looks like Amendola suffered a concussion on this vicious hit. He didn't seem to be able to walk straight after getting up. The recceiver's had injury history, but it's hard to imagine many receivers avoiding a concussion on this play.
