Kenny Chesney‘s annual stop at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA is a popular one. All 60,000 seats to each of these shows sells out almost immediately. It is no surprise that Gillette is one of his favorite places to play. Chesney recently told CJWF Country 1031AM: “There is just something about those people. Every time we play Gillette Stadium, they come — and they sing their hearts out. It may be one of the NFL’s biggest stadiums, but I’m telling you…every year, those people make it feel like a little club date.”
Tickets are available now for Kenny Chesney at Gillette Stadium on August 15th, 2009!
The New England Patriots may have lost to the New York Jets, but they walked away from the game knowing that quarterback Matt Cassel can put up Brady-like numbers. Cassel completed 30 of 51 passes for 400 yards and three touchdowns, in addition to running for 62 yards. A Jay Feely field goal would end it in overtime giving the New York Jets sole possession of first place in the AFC East.
Just before the end of the 1st half the Brett Favre and the Jets had built a 24-6 lead, simply dominating the Patriots. The Patriots were able to add 7 points to close out the half, setting up a big comeback in the next half. The Patriots put up the first points of the third quarter with a ten yard TD pass to Benjamin Watson. A field goal in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter knotted the game at 24 apiece. The Jets would take the lead once again on a TD run by Thomas Jones. The Patriots would get one more chance to tie the game, getting the ball back with 1:04 left and no timeouts. Cassell was simply brilliant in leading the Patriots down the field. The drive culminated in a fourth down TD pass to Randy Moss with just one second left sending this one to OT.
The Patriots had stolen the momentum going into OT but the Jets won the toss and would get the first chance to end the game. Brett Favre led a masterful series of drives eventually setting up Jay Feely’s 34yrd game winning field goal.
The New York Jets will be hoping to ride the momentum from this game to their matchup with the undefeated Titans on 11/23. Now that they are in first it will be tough stay there. The Patriots on the other hand will be hoping to force a tie for first when they play the Miami Dolphins on 11/23. Jets tickets and Patriots tickets are available for all remaining games.
The Patriots two-time Pro Bowl outside linebacker Adalius Thomas may be out for the season with a broken arm. Thomas, a team leader during huddles (one of two defensive players with a communication device in his helmet) was injured during the first half of the Pats win over the Bills at home on Sunday. The Pats seemed unfazed by the injury, substituting Pierre Woods into Thomas’ spot. New England’s depth was tested again, and they passed with flying colors. The Pats are 6-3 and are tied with the Jets for first place in the AFC East despite losing their quarterback, top running back, and one of the top defensive players to injury.

The New England Patriots looked like last year’s team on Monday night. Matt Cassel was a Brady-like 18-24 with three touchdowns and no picks for a 136.3 passer rating. Despite being sacked six times, Cassel helped lead the Pats offense to 404 total yards. Randy Moss reeled in two touchdown passes, and Wes Welker caught one. Sammy Morris ran for 139 yards and a TD before leaving with a knee injury. Rookie BenJarvus Green-Ellis filled in for Morris, rushing for 65 yards and a score.
Broncos QB Jay Cutler hurt himself on the first play of the game, hitting his hand on Vince Wilfork’s helmet. Cutler stayed in the game, but did not seem to fall into a rhythm. He hit former Patriot tight end Ben Graham for a touchdown in the fourth quarter after leaving for the end of the 2nd quarter. Brothers Boss and Champ Bailey both left with injuries in the first half, Boss with a knee injury and champ with a groin injury.
While the win was encouraging for the Pats, they will be without another team captain. Safety Rodney Harrison suffered a serious knee injury, and it seems as if his season – if not career, is over. The Pats will announce his status either today, or on tomorrow’s injury report.
The 4-2 Pats will host the suddenly successful 2-4 Rams next weekend at Gillette Stadium. Great Patriots Tickets are still available for every game this season.
The 3-2 New England Patriots and the 4-2 Denver Broncos will face off on Monday night at Gillette Stadium. Both teams are 2-2 in their conferences, and are looking to bounce back from tough losses last week. Matt Cassel couldn’t find the end zone in week 7, completing 22 of 38 with one pick while being sacked four times. Sammy Morris had the lone New England TD, as well as 26 yards on the ground.
Denver’s Jay Cutler has been consistent, throwing at least one TD in each game for the Bronco’s so far. Week 7 was tough for him as well; despite throwing two TDs, he had less than 200 yards through the air for the first time the season – and threw a costly pick. One of his two TD targets, Brandon Stokley, suffered a concussion and may not be suiting up on Monday night.
Denver and New England are also each working through running-back injuries. Pats RB Laurence Maroney sat out yet another game this season, his third of the year. Denver has been without rookie back Ryan Torain (broken left elbow) all season so far, and had to deactivate Selvin Young (groin injury) last week.
Both teams have something to prove – tonight’s game should be quite the matchup.
