By John Gworek, 1 month 2 weeks ago
Since an ugly overtime loss to Chicago, Pittsburgh has won three of four. Meanwhile, Detroit has lost three of four since a 2–0 start. That doesn’t bode well for the home team when the Steelers and Lions meet Sunday night at Ford Field.   Pittsburgh appears to have found its stride offensively, putting up back-to-back games of 400-plus yards since an ugly five-turnover...

Sunday Night Football: Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots Preview and Prediction

By John Gworek, 1 month 3 weeks ago
A couple weeks ago, it looked like the biggest worry for the Atlanta Falcons when they head to New England would be dealing with the many reminders that they blew a 28–3 lead in the Super Bowl and allowed the Patriots to claim another ring.   But after back-to-back home losses to Buffalo and Miami — the latter thanks to blowing another big lead (17–0) — the Falcons...

Thursday Night Football: New England Patriots vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Preview and Prediction

By John Gworek, 2 months 1 week ago
When the NFL schedule was released, this week’s Thursday night matchup was more interesting than most. The defending Super Bowl champs going on the road for a rare visit to Tampa Bay against a Buccaneers team many expect to take the next step this season. Tom Brady vs. Jameis Winston.

Houston Texans vs. New England Patriots Preview and Prediction

By Matt Josephs, 2 months 3 weeks ago
The Patriots and Texans picked up victories in Week 2, although they did so in different ways. Houston went on the road to play the Bengals and beat them 13-9 on Thursday night. It was hardly an offensive explosion, but rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson did just enough to move the team in the right direction. He had two big runs, including the only touchdown of the contest last Thursday night....

Thursday Night Football: Kansas City Chiefs vs. New England Patriots Preview and Prediction

By John Gworek, 3 months 1 week ago
It's time for Thursday Night Football. The last time the Patriots and Chiefs met in a primetime game was Sept. 29, 2014, in Kansas City. The Chiefs hammered the Pats, 41–14, dropping them to 2–2 and leaving some wondering if Tom Brady’s star was finally starting to fade.   Since that night, New England has won 43 of 52 games, including a playoff win over the Chiefs...

By Athlon Sports, 5 months 1 week ago
For a Patriots team that had just completed the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history, complacency did not set in. Not even a little bit.   If anything, the Pats and coach Bill Belichick ratcheted up the offseason intensity with a flurry of moves — both in trades and free agency — that only heightened their status as the favorites to win their third Super Bowl in four years...
