Patriots Pummel Winless Titans

Posted by Ace Staff on October 19th, 2009

With a Buffalo Bills win over the New York Jets yesterday, the Patriots now stand alone on top of the AFC East Division with a 4-2 record.  Their last victory came on a snowy afternoon in Foxboro against the Tennessee Titans. There were two unexpected occurrences Sunday at Gillette Stadium. For one it looked like January in October.  Secondly, the Patriots won by a total of 59 points. Tom Brady made history on week six of 2009 regular season play, throwing for six touchdown passes (five in the second quarter alone) and 380 yards from his 29 completions. “Every week we’re learning something more about ourselves and what we can do,” said Brady. “There’s no doubt a game like this can give you a lot of confidence.” Brady wasn’t the only one with a break through game with Wes Welker and Randy Moss combining for five touchdown receptions. RB Laurence Maroney finally proved himself a threat with 123 yards and a TD from his 16 game carries.  The Titans will have a lot to work on during their bye week before they match up with the Jacksonville Jaguars on November 1st. “I’m disappointed and embarrassed,” said Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher. “Fortunately for me, career-wise, I have never been through anything like this before and, unfortunately, it happened tonight. I can assure you one thing, it’s not going to happen again.” The Pats are now scheduled to journey over to Wembley Stadium in London to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, October 25th.  New England Patriots tickets are available now!

Brady/Moss Ready for Titans

Posted by Ace Staff on October 15th, 2009

Following the Denver Broncos overtime victory last week against the New England Patriots, head coach Bill Belichik called out his team’s lack of offensive production all season long. “Coach hammered into us (Wednesday) that we haven’t had a pass over 40 yards yet this year in five games,” said QB Tom Brady. “It’s something that I’ve got to do a better job of.” Brady continued to talk about how he and WR Randy Moss will be looking to break out next week against the 0-5 Tennessee Titans. Moss has been struggling since week 1 when they played the Buffalo Bills. The Pro Bowler has caught one touchdown pass in five games, two years after setting an NFL record with 23 TD receptions from Brady in 2007. His longest completed play this year has been for 30 yards. Tennessee will certainly be hungry for a win knowing the way they started off their 2009 campaign. “We’ve made our own mess,” said Titans coach Jeff Fisher said. “We have to find our way out of it.” The Patriots defense and overall organization has been thrilled this week after welcoming back LB Junior Seau. ESPN has reported for him to be ready to go on Sunday. Game time is set for Sunday, 4:15 at Gillette Stadium.  New England Patriots tickets are available now!

Patriots Gear Up for 3-0 Ravens

Posted by Ace Staff on October 2nd, 2009

Last time the New England Patriots matched up against the Baltimore Ravens was in December of 2007 when they were 16-0 bound for the regular season.  Baltimore gave the Pats their toughest game of the year, knowing Brady’s go-ahead TD pass with 44 seconds remaining was the deciding factor in the 27-24 victory. Ray Lewis and The Ravens will be more than ready to go heading into week 4 this Sunday at Gillette. New England and Baltimore have met a total of four times where the Patriots have shown undefeated. Behind young quarterback Joe Flacco this season the Ravens have coasted to a 3-0 start. Head coach John Harbaugh has had nothing but praise for Flacco, who has earned six TD passes thus far. “I think he sees things better. He’s quicker with the ball versus pressure,” said Harbaugh. “He’s got a better understanding of how it all ties together with the protection and the routes. He knows how to get guys lined up. I mean, there are a thousand things that Joe does better than he did a year ago.” Tom Brady and his offense are trying to avoid their worst start in four years.  Brady is currently 3 of 10 for 10 yards in the red zone but has faith that the offense will improve for next game. “It’s just execution,” said Brady. “It’s everybody being on the same page and making the reads and throws and something we’ll evaluate and look at. We can’t keep kicking field goals, I know that. We’ve got to be better than that.”  Brady is hoping wide receiver Wes Welker will be back in action Sunday to give him more options down field.  Welker contributed in New England’s week 1 win over Buffalo with 12 receptions, and since then has definitely been missed.  The high intensity Baltimore defense coming to town will serve as a true test for the Patriots.  Kickoff is set for 1:00 pm. New England Patriots tickets are available now!

Patriots Sign LB Prescott Burgess

Posted by Ace Staff on September 23rd, 2009

The New England Patriots just recently acquired linebacker Prescott Burgress from the Baltimore Ravens earlier this week for a seventh-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.  Burgess has two prior years of experience under his belt, and will be expected to come in and contribute immediately for New England’s thin backfield. The Patriots only played two linebackers against the Jets last Sunday (Gary Guyton and Adalius Thomas). Week 3′s game against the Atlanta Falcons is scheduled for Sunday, September 27th at 1:00 pm.  This will be the first time since 2005 and the 12th time ever that Atlanta and New England have matched up.  After a heartbreaking loss in New York, Tom Brady will look to rally his squad back as he has many times before.  Bill Belichick is 2-0 against the Falcons as Patriots head coach. New England Patriots tickets are now available!

Patriots Win Over Bills in Dramatic Fashion

Posted by Ace Staff on September 15th, 2009

ESPN analyst and sportscaster Chris Berman brought up the old saying “that’s why they play the game” at half time during the New England Patriots Buffalo Bills Monday night showdown at Gillette Stadium. The Bills were ahead and in control for the entire game, aside from the last portion of the fourth quarter when Tom Brady connected with TE Ben Watson for two touchdowns.  The 12 point swing resulted in a New England 25-24 victory.  With two minutes left on the clock and all time outs still available, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick decided for special teams to kick off deep with hopes that the defense would take care of business. Special teams decided to bring it back earlier than expected, stripping the ball and recovering Leodis McKelvin’s fumble to set up the go-ahead TD. Tom Brady in his first game since week 1 of last season completed 39 passes for 378 yards.  Randy Moss came up with 141 yards from 12 grabs, outplaying Buffalo’s newly acquired wide-out Terrell Owens (held to 46 yards).  “I felt good all night, we were just off. The plays we needed to make – fourth downs we missed, third downs we missed, two chances in the red area, the interception – those things really get you behind the 8-ball,” said Brady. “We recovered with just a few seconds left. Sometimes it happens like that. It’s a pretty special victory.” The Pats will have the week to correct their mistakes and look forward to their Sunday game against the New York Jets at Giants Stadium. New England Patriots tickets are now available!

Bruschi to Join NFL ESPN Analysts

Posted by Ace Staff on September 8th, 2009

Former New England Patriots longtime stand-out Tedy Bruschi has just decided after retiring to join the ESPN stable of NFL analysts.  He will mostly show as a representative for ESPNBoston and will appear on “NFL Live,” “SportsCenter, and “ESPN Radio.”  ESPNBoston is a newly developed project and will officially come alive on Monday when the Patriots face off against the Buffalo Bills at Gillette Stadium.  “I’m very excited to be joining the ESPN team. I hope to bring my passion and knowledge for the game as an analyst just as I did as a player,” said Bruschi. “I look forward to the national exposure of covering the entire league while also having the opportunity to stay close to my roots here with ESPNBoston.com.”  Bruschi, a 13 year veteran, was named honorary defensive captain of the franchise’s 50th Anniversary Team by Patriots owner Robert Kraft.  In his 189 regular-season games played with New England, he racked up 1,134 tackles, 30 1/2 sacks, and 12 interceptions. ESPN could not be happier to now have Bruschi as a part of their team. “Tedy Bruschi has embodied the Patriots and their unrivaled success the past decade, said ESPN executive vice president, production Norby Williamson. “We are thrilled that this three-time Super Bowl champion is joining our roster of NFL experts as well as ESPNBoston, which will give New England sports fans a stable of authentic and familiar Boston voices when it launches Monday.”

Rookie QB Hoyer Leads Patriots Over Giants

Posted by Ace Staff on September 4th, 2009

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick decided to give all the snaps to undrafted rookie Brian Hoyer yesterday against the New York Giants, leaving starter Tom Brady and other back up option Andrew Walter to watch from the sidelines.  The result turned out better than expected as Hoyer racked up 242 yards from 18 of 25 passes with no interceptions, leading the Patriots past a 21 point first quarter deficit to win 38-27.  “Not bad,” said Belichick. “He handled the ball fairly well, threw it accurately.” The Giants gained the initial lead with an opening drive touchdown led by franchise quarterback Eli Manning. From there David Carr took over and handled the next three series for New York.  “I think everyone is ready for the season to get going and start playing for real,” said Manning. Although New York’s giant first quarter seemed impressive, the only first string Patriots player the two experienced QB’s saw on the defensive end was outside linebacker Pierre Woods.  The Patriots and other NFL teams are hungry to get the regular season underway.  New England will start their official 2009 campaign against the Buffalo Bills on September 14th at Gillette Stadium.

New England to Wrap Up Preseason vs. Giants

Posted by Ace Staff on September 1st, 2009

The New England Patriots are preparing to host the New York Giants this Thursday, September 3rd at 7:30 pm.  So far the Pats have played well early on with a 2-1 preseason record.  The Tom Brady/Randy Moss combination seems to be back in full effect along with a strong defensive nucleus.  This game will mark the fifth consecutive year that the Patriots have squared off against New York before the regular season.  The Giants hold a 1-2 preseason record that includes their thrilling 27-24 victory over the Washington Redskins.  It is questionable whether certain starters will get the call to play, knowing official games start in just a week.  After Brady was tackled and fell awkwardly on his shoulder against the Washington Redskins, there has been speculation about how healthy he really is.  “Look, we played a physical game against a very physical team…Short-handed game, a lot of guys with bumps and bruises…a lot of guys who played in the game would fall into that category,” said head coach Bill Belichick. “That’s pretty normal after a game like that.” After Thursday the Pats will look to kick off the regular season in Gillette Stadium verses the Buffalo Bills on September 14th. New England Patriots tickets are now available!
