Film Review: Patriots stole a big play from the Kansas City Chiefs

Film Review: Patriots stole a big play from the Kansas City Chiefs

The Patriots are borrowing from the team that defeated them in the season opener. New England Patriots RB James White gained 96 yards against the New Orleans Saints, with 85 coming through the air. His biggest gain was a 24-yard catch-and-run after he easily beat the linebacker in coverage and moved down the field. “You know that play right there, we talked about earlier in the game, Jim, we talked about copycat league,” color commentator Tony Romo said during the CBS broadcast. “That last play right out of the backfield, guess who they stole that play from?” “Tell...

Patriots offense is spreading the football better than any other team in the league

Patriots offense is spreading the football better than any other team in the league

The Patriots have more talented skill players than any other team in the league. The New England Patriots needed someone to pick up the offense after a disappointing week 1 performance against the Kansas City Chiefs. The team couldn’t overcome the loss of Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski and Chris Hogan were blanketed, and the Chiefs dared Tom Brady to win by throwing to a double-covered Brandin Cooks or Danny Amendola. It didn’t work, Amendola was injured, and the Patriots needed to figure out an adjustment against the New Orleans Saints. The Saints defense is the worst in the league and...

Patriots-Saints: Tom Brady had a top 5 game for an old quarterback

Patriots-Saints: Tom Brady had a top 5 game for an old quarterback

Brady put together a strong performance in his second game of the year. New England Patriots QB Tom Brady wasn’t himself in the season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs, but he was back to being Touchdown Tom in the rebound game against the New Orleans Saints. The 40-year-old quarterback completed 30 of 39 passes (76.9%) for 447 yards, 3 touchdowns, 0 interceptions, and a passer rating of 139.6. That is one of the greatest performances by a quarterback over the age of 40 in NFL history, without any question. Here is how it ranks among the 122 games by quarterbacks with 15 or more...

Injury update: Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's groin injury “not believed to be serious”

Injury update: Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski's groin injury “not believed to be serious”

New England's star tight end may have dodged a bullet. The New England Patriots played a really good game yesterday against the New Orleans Saints. However, one of the few negatives was the number of injuries as a total of five players were all visibly shaken up at one point during the game. Among those players was Rob Gronkowski. The NFL's best tight end took himself out of the game in the third quarter after suffering what was later announced to be a groin injury. Given Gronkowski's past, he ended last season on injured reserve and has not played a full 16 games since 2011, plus the rest...

In second game with Patriots, Phillip Dorsett posts second-most receiving yards of NFL career

In second game with Patriots, Phillip Dorsett posts second-most receiving yards of NFL career

Ex-Colt Phillip Dorsett secured three passes for 68 yards on Sunday. On the same day Jacoby Brissett made his first start as an Indianapolis Colt, the wide receiver he was traded for caught his first pass as a New England Patriot. Phillip Dorsett finished having caught three in New England’s 36-20 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. He finished early due to a knee injury, but prior to his fourth-quarter exit, the 2015 first-round pick looked like a player who was well-adjusted, especially considering he wasn’t on the team until Sept. 2. A good sign on an afternoon where only...
