Patriots vs Raiders: Positive and Negative Takeaways

The Patriots won, but was it enough? Playing against a mediocre opponent, the offense looked sluggish, with the exception of a few players. Yes a win is a win, thats all that really matters, but what does this mean for the future in 2014?

Recap: The New England Patriots are not who we thought they were

A win’s a win, but the Patriots should not feel happy with themselves after their victory against the Raiders. It is clear that something is wrong with the New England Patriots, who should have been able to dominate a hapless Raiders team, and this type of effort won’t cut it once they start playing some real playoff-contenders MVP – Julian Edelman It’s still hard for me...

Every point in Raiders-Patriots game was scored by a '-kowski'

I’m kicking myself for not even noticing this as I watched this entire game Sunday afternoon. A special thanks to SB Nation for pointing out this once-in-a-lifetime occurrence.

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...

Before Tom Brady was Tom Brady, he was a sixth-round NFL draft pick that had zero shot of starting for an NFL team or even seeing the field in the regular season. Then Drew Bledsoe got hurt, and the rest was history. But if Bledsoe never went down and Brady’s NFL career didn’t pan out, […]
