New England Patriots avoid NFL’s biggest turkeys, bitter rivals do not

The NFL is a marketing machine, a network of television, online, print and other media platforms that push the league’s message at every turn. It’s a mechanism that churns out stars and makes average Joes household names. Most of the time, that’s a good thing; the league is promoting the game by highlighting the people who make it click. But it’s not always appropriate. Sometimes...

Belichick on the similarities of Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers: ‘They both wear No. 12′

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, in all his deadpan glory, told a reporter Wednesday who asked him to name the similarities he sees between Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, with a simple  “They both wear No. 12,” per ESPN’s Mike Reiss.

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount awarded huge Week 12 honor

Twelve weeks into the 2014 NFL season, the league is starting to take shape. It’s easier and easier to see what teams are contenders and which ones are just not ready for primetime. How did each team get to their current point? In part, it was because of the performance, good or bad, of some key players and coaches. Some helped their team, while others hurt the squad.

New England Patriots: Can Patriots win out?

Yes, the NFL is a league that runs week to week. Teams can fall to their doom in a blink of an eye while others rise to the top with a one big win. It is hard to make predictions too far out, but by now, most NFL teams have identified themselves as a contender, pretender, or just an all around failure.
