At best it showed unfamiliarity with an opponent's personnel and required later clarification from the Rams, which we discussed last week and won't rehash.Now that the game has unfolded -...

Plenty of people were amused last week when Rams coach Jeff Fisher made references to “Brandon” and “Danny” while discussing the Patriots’ running backs because Brandon Bolden usually only plays special teams and there hasn’t been a Danny at running back in New England since Danny Woodhead left town.

The New England Patriots reportedly tried to lock up Martellus Bennett before the tight end even played his first game in a Patriots uniform. Bennett, who’s set to become a free agent this offseason, before the season turned down a contract extension from New England that would have paid him $7 million per season, according to a report from NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport. Rapoport...

What we have seen from Dak Prescott thus far this season hasn’t been done by a first-year starter in the NFL since Tom Brady all the way back in 2001. That last statement might be debatable, but a 10-1 record through the first 11 games of Prescott’s career compares favorably to the 11-3 mark Brady put up in his first year as a starter. Statistically, Prescott is wiping the floor...
The Patriots are favored by nearly two touchdowns in their upcoming game against the Rams, but the team’s coaching staff isn’t taking its opponent lightly. New England’s only two losses this season have come in Foxboro, so it’s understandable that the team is being cautious heading into Sunday’s game. The Rams, though, got blown out in New Orleans last week, 49-21, but...
