2014 Week 2 Patriots Power Rankings

Check out what the 'experts' are saying about the Patriots after Week 2. Okay, I admit it.  First drive by the Vikings Sunday (7 plays, 80 yds, TD, 4.06 min.) was more than a little annoying and spurred some black humor from our crowd about the so-called improved Patriots defense.  First drive by the Patriots (3 plays, 9 yds, Punt, 1.29 min.)  was downright deflating.  Chris Burke called it nauseating and I won't quibble with the degree of churning discomfort beginning to boil. Admit it, Patriots fans: You felt a little nauseous when Matt Cassel marched Minnesota down the field for...

Patriots Beat: ‘D’ ensures things take turn

MINNEAPOLIS — It’s hard to get a complete read on the Patriots defense from two games. But there’s one thing we do know with relative certainty: They have a knack for creating turnovers.If you’re a team that has aspirations down the road, that’s a very good trait to have.The Patriots were opportunistic in the Miami loss, forcing three turnovers. They were at it again yesterday, picking off Matt Cassel four times, with three of those ultimately producing points for the offense.

Matt Cassel will remain the starting quarterback

Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel tied his career high with four interceptions in the 30-7 loss to the Patriots on Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium.

Matt...

That's pretty much exactly what happened at TCF Bank Stadium on Sunday, and as soon as it started raining Matt Cassel interceptions, it felt like the Vikings were in for a...
