Making Sense of the Coin Toss Decision by @curtfield13

The New England Patriots dropped their week sixteen matchup vs. division rival, the New York Jets. The Patriots “fell” to 12-3 on the season following their 26-20 overtime loss yesterday, which many fans are blaming on head coach Bill Belichick and special teams ace Matthew Slater. When the Patriots put together an extremely impressive touchdown […]

Which Week 16 loser has the most to worry about in NFL playoffs?

Just when you think you have the NFL figured out, Week 16 happens. Four playoff-bound teams lost Sunday, and three of those losses were ugly. The Falcons ended the Panthers’ quest for perfection with a 20-13 win at Atlanta. The Rams stunned the Seahawks 23-17 in Seattle. The Patriots lost 26-20 in overtime to the […]

Best and worst from Week 16 in the NFL

Week 16 of the 2015 NFL season saw the New York Jets dispatch a rival foe, the Atlanta Falcons give a perfect team the taste of defeat and the NFC East crown a champion. The week also gave us another chapter in the Green Bay Packers’ tailspin, a blown opportunity in Baltimore and meltdowns in both […]

Matthew Slater’s costly coin flip mistake sinks Patriots (video)

This might be the weirdest thing to happen in the saga of the Patriots-Jets rivalry since Bill Belichick resigned as “HC of the NYJ.” The Patriots and Jets were tied 20-20 after regulation, and the Patriots won the coin toss. However, Matthew Slater told referee Clete Blakeman that the Patriots wanted to kick. Why on […]

Making history yet again…

Patriots are 12-2 as they head in to the game Sunday against the Jets, becoming the second team in NFL history with at least 12 regular-season wins in six consecutive seasons (2010-15), joining Indianapolis, who posted seven straight 12-win seasons (2003-09). With a win this Sunday, the Patriots can secure the number one seed in the […]

On Being a Fan

Merry Christmas, Pats Pals! I hope you’ve all had a great holiday week with your family and friends. It’s one in the morning, and the only football-related thing on my mind is why none of my T.V. stations played the TNF game. However, I found a notebook where I’d jotted some thoughts, and I’ll flesh […]

It’s Jets week! What to Expect on Sunday.

The Patriots play the Jets again this Sunday, but this time down at East Rutherford, New Jersey at MetLife Stadium, in a huge rivalry game with playoff implications. The last time these teams played, the Jets lost 30-23 on Oct. 25th in Foxboro. The Jets entered that game with a 4-1 record, but after that loss to the […]

Let’s Keep Rolling!

How are we feeling today, PatsNation? I for one, have been on cloud nine all day! We all knew that short of every Patriot ever being injured, beating the Titans was no problem. Still, it feels good to be seeing what we’re used to from this team. I’m not quite ready to call the rest […]

Patriots Sign 3 Time Pro Bowler Steven Jackson

We all knew this had to be coming. With LeGarrette Blount out for the season with a leg injury, the Patriots needed some depth behind Brandon Bolden and James White in the backfield. With the way that injuries have been finding their way to almost half of the Patriots team, a little bit more depth […]

Destiny & Dynasty

A short, short time ago, in the galaxy you live in the Patriots began their season amid accusations and speculations. While the clamor of the accusations has become silence in the wake of the Patriots losses.  The speculation is no longer focused on if Tom Brady will play but if the core of the supporting […]

Back On Top

Ah! After two weeks in a row of feeling sore from the losses, it sure feels good to come away with a win this week. Not just a win, but a spot in the playoffs. Then, with a little help from the Monday night game winner, Patriots are the AFC East Champs! How good do […]

The Patriots Play Calling Will Improve Come Playoff Time

Over the past few years, the Patriots have been known for their creative and innovative play calling. These calls have incited coaches (John Harbaugh) to whine like a baby and stomp around on the field, have brought about accusations of cheating, and, more commonly, have left Patriot Nation cheering and hollering all night long. End-arounds, […]

Best and worst from Week 14 in the NFL

Week 14 of the 2015 NFL season saw a pair of MVP candidates stay red hot, an emerging defensive terror put on a sack showcase and a handful of sophomore quarterbacks lead their teams to wins. Sunday also gave us ugly blowouts in Jacksonville and Cleveland, another difficult day for Dez in Green Bay and more missed […]

The Four Game Season

For those who are recovering from the shell shock of the two game skid. Perspective is four inexpiable plays by the Patriots led to two loss and yes they were painful as a fan to watch because losing sucks. That is in the past and we are onto Houston. So we face J.J. Watt the […]

James White: The New Dion Lewis?

Week 9. The week where everything started to go downhill for the Patriots in terms of injuries. Playing a mediocre Redskins team that hadn’t been able to produce any kind of offense or cause any turnovers all day long. At home in the comforts of Gillette Stadium. Tom Brady as quarterback. It was a layup […]

The Importance of Earning a First-Round Bye

Lets just take a minute to settle down and collect our thoughts. The New England Patriots are 10-2 with four games left in the 2015 season. In most cities that’s a huge deal and major accomplishment, but here in New England, after two straight losses, fans act like the sky is falling. Don’t get me […]

It’s Not Time to Panic … Yet.

A little over a week ago, all of Patriots Nation was hell-bent on another perfect season – this time capping it off with a Super Bowl win and finishing at 19-0. That seems like an eternity ago up here in New England. We have to remember that the Pats sit at 10-2, so not all […]

Take a deep breath…

…Now let it out. Repeat until your heart rate returns to normal. Feel better yet? Neither do I. Thought it was worth a try at least. What can I say about this Pats-Eagles debacle that hasn’t been tweeted already? I’m still shaking my head. I don’t like the way this feels. As a Michigan native, I […]
