Bill Belichick doesn’t regret late-game decisions

At some point in the next seven months, there might be one or two New Englanders wondering out loud why the Patriots didn’t kick a field goal in the fourth quarter of the AFC championship game. OK, it might be one or two million Patriots fans second-guessing Bill Belichick. The

We Are On to the AFC Championship

And so the story goes, ladies and gentleman, another Brady vs. Manning matchup…. I had a feeling this is how the story would play out, once the Broncos decided on Manning as the starter for the playoffs.

UNDEFEATED PATRIOTS!

While the regular season record did not show an undefeated season the spirit of this team, coaches and management absolutely did. Their refusal to give in, give up or quit in the midst of the maelström of accusations, injustice, injuries and to be blunt outright lies (Yes, I mean you Goodell with your Deflategate witch hunt).

5 biggest coaching mistakes from NFL’s Divisional Round

Armchair coaches were busy during the 2015 NFL divisional playoffs. Some of the coaching decisions made this weekend will provide fodder for conversation well into the spring.

Pats Move On to AFC Title Game As They Silence the Critics

Well, in a few words, that was an offensive beatdown, explosion, whatever, it was such a great game to watch for Patriots Nation.

Patriots clinch playoff win over Chiefs on tipped pass
