Well Brady finally grabbed a hold of his fear in the Mile High City and was able to control his breathing to a nice victory. Let’s see how the NE Patriots will fair with a unpredictable Raiders.
My fantasy season could be in the tank but maybe with some ingenuity and your input I just might be able to make it to playoffs. Also, who the hell does Jared Cook look like? It could be your dad.
While the Patriots taking a breather this week we look at the first 8 games and what the next half of the season will look like. Though 6-2 the identity of this team is yet to be known.
Sunday’s Super Bowl rematch was speculated to be one of the highlight games of the season when schedules were announced months ago. There is no doubt that coaches and players competing for both New England and Atlanta had circled this match up a long time ago.
Sunday was a memorable day for New England as Tom Brady eclipsed 187 victories, now the most for a starting quarterback in NFL history. Yet, there was only celebration when the clock actually hit 0, as once again the game was narrow until the last drive.
This past Thursday Tom Brady and the Patriots battled against Jameis Winston’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a short-week matchup. Going into the game from last week, the Patriots had issues in the secondary against the Carolina Panthers, which left many fans worried and questioning how the team could succeed this season. The Patriots did prevail this week in a 19-14 victory, which once again was decided by the final play for the third time in as many weeks.
Last Sunday brought dismay for folks in New England who support the Patriots. The team managed to keep it close until the last few moments, when Graham Gano hit a 48-yard field goal to close out the game with a win for the Panthers. The Patriots did a few things well, but overall looked sloppy on the field; a rare statement this well into the season. After a rough game against the Carolina Panthers, the Patriots will look to regroup quickly for a Thursday night matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
What a time to be alive. Fantasy is entering week 5 and players are now showing what they provide. It’s time to make those changes to the roster and get trading.
Sunday proved to be a hectic day across the league, with one of the biggest games being in New England when the Houston Texans came to town.
As the Patriots look to defend their title throughout the course of the season, the Chiefs are looking to get past the hump that they could call Divisional-Round exits. The Chiefs gameplan in the Andy Reid era has been consistent with ground-and-pound football; running the ball often and having wide receiver routes primarily as a second option. In the Andy Reid era, there has only been one 1,000 yard-receiving years from a Chiefs wide receiver (this excludes TE Travis Kelce who has multiple). This shows the likelihood of the Chiefs having a true vertical threat; little to none. As long as they have a plethora of solid running backs (Rookie Kareem Hunt, Charandrick West and vet CJ Spiller) paired with Travis Kelce, the offense will still be a threat.
