Patriots vs Rams: New England lists nobody on hypothetical Wednesday practice report

After 18 games, New England’s health is looking good. The New England Patriots did not just exit their game against the Kansas City Chiefs as the champions of the AFC, they also exited it pretty healthy. No injuries were announced during the overtime contest and a look at the first practice report of the week further confirms that New England is at full strength heading towards the Super Bowl: the team did not list a single player on its first injury report leading up to the title game. Of course, neither the Patriots nor the Los Angeles Rams did practice today so the two lists are more...

Josh McDaniels shares one under-the-radar challenge behind preparing for a Super Bowl

New England’s coach touched on the topic of over-coaching. The Super Bowl is two weeks away, which gives both the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams plenty of time to prepare for the biggest game of the year. However, to paraphrase Spiderman’s Uncle Ben, with a great amount of time comes a great amount of responsibility. What does this mean, you ask? Coaches need to find a way to use the time as efficiently as possible to not be counterproductive in their preparation. New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels spoke about this during a conference call on Tuesday,...

With Brian Flores expected to depart, the ex-Rutgers head coach might fill the void.

With the 37-year old headed to South Beach, New England will need to look for a new man to lead its defensive staff and the top candidate might be an old friend of head coach Bill Belichick.

As the designated home team for the game, the Rams were allowed to pick their uniforms and they are going with one of the best-looking outfits in all of football.

In the NFC Championship, the most blatant DPI you will ever see never got called, a penalty that would have allowed the Saints to run out the clock and kick a game-sealing field goal to send them to the Super Bowl.

Instead, the team installed it the night before the game by running it in a walkthrough setting at the team hotel’s ballroom. The play in question?

Super Bowl 53: Patriots open as slight underdogs to the Rams

Super Bowl 53: Patriots open as slight underdogs to the Rams

It’s basically even. The New England Patriots opened up as slight underdogs to the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 53, with the Rams 1-point favorites. That didn’t last long. Almost immediately, the line flipped and now the Patriots are considered 2-point favorites. This is likely to change over the next couples weeks. The Patriots have been favored in all of their Super Bowls since they last played the Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI, where the then-St. Louis Rams were 14-point favorites. The over/under is also set at 58, which is pretty high; it’s the highest over/under in Patriots’ Super...

Both teams have been incredible this season and both would likely be favorites over the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. But if I had to choose one team to face, I would actually pick the Saints because I think their pass rush is weaker than the Rams and because their offense consists of Michael Thomas and a pair of running backs- theoretically, they should be easier to defend. Use this as the open thread for discussion.

Should the Broncos imitate the Patriots in some ways?

As they say, “if you ain’t cheatin, you ain’t tryin”. Should the Denver Broncos try harder to test the limits of rules? Yay we get to watch another Super Bowl with the Tom Brady, Bill Belichick Patriots. Makes me want to vomit just writing that sentence. What a terrible game we had to watch on Sunday night. In pure football terms it was exciting and interesting and full of drama but it just made me ill imagining either side coming out victorious. Still, you have to look in awe at what the New England team has done over the past 19 years and hope and pray that the Broncos can...

Patrick Mahomes to play in Pro Bowl, Travis Kelce will not

Patrick Mahomes to play in Pro Bowl, Travis Kelce will not

This will be Mahomes’ first opportunity to participate in the Pro Bowl, while Kelce has already done so three times. No Kansas City Chiefs fan wanted to hear these words this week: “Patrick Mahomes will attend the Pro Bowl in Orlando.” But with the Chiefs having been eliminated by the New England Patriots in the AFC title game on Sunday night, that will be the case. Mahomes plans to attend the game, and as I suspected back in December, the league will showcase the 23-year-old Chiefs quarterback as the face and draw of the game. .@Chiefs QB @PatrickMahomes5 will attend the 2019...

Patriots open as 2.5 point favorites over Rams in Super Bowl

Patriots open as 2.5 point favorites over Rams in Super Bowl

The smart money is to take Tom Brady and the Patriots now I expected the line to be six or seven points but was pleasantly surprised it is only two and a half points in favor of the Patriots. I’m through betting against Tom Brady and the Patriots. Yes I know they lost the Super Bowl to the Eagles last year. But they won the year before. My hope is that if Brady wins a fifth Super Bowl ring he will finally retire. He’s 42 years old for heaven’s sake, what more does he really need to accomplish? He’s now on his ninth Super Bowl in eighteen seasons. Even I am begrudgingly willing to...

You want change in the NFL? Think again. The fans are right where the league wants them. Bad calls, dropped balls, diva falls, we've got them all. The Super Bowl will contain at least one team that shouldn’t be there. The Patriots will be there, though they likely shouldn’t have been last year. Our Steelers this year should have been in the playoffs, and while it mattered little, we showed this year we know how to beat the Patriots.
