The Patriots' season ended almost two weeks ago (by this point, it seems like it was months) with a loss to the Ravens in the AFC title game, and by now, most New England football fans have had more than their fair share of storylines and hype involving Sunday’s game between San Francisco and Baltimore. (Did you know that the two coaches are brothers?

With the 2012 season done, we’ve decided to take a look back the 10 best plays of the year for the Patriots. Not every one of the plays ended in a touchdown, sack or interception, but the combination of execution, results and situation led us to name it one of the best of the year.

  Ed Reed is a Hall of Famer, a rare talent who can get away with being out of position, but still managing to come away with the right play at the right time. And if the Patriots can get the impending free agent on their terms this offseason -- that is to say one, or maybe two years tops, on short money -- they should jump at the chance.

It’s always a pleasure to get some additional insight into the game from a scout -- they offer a perspective on life in the NFL that we rarely see. With that in mind, we asked an NFC scout who watched plenty of Patriots’ games this year about three points of emphasis for New England heading into the offseason.

In the continuing search to help shore up their pass rush, the Patriots have reached agreements with a pair of CFL pass rushers over the last week, agreeing to deals with Armond Armstead and

  Throughout the offseason, we’ll check in on New England’s free agent class. Here’s the first look at the group of players who were with the Patriots in 2012 but aren’t under contract to the team going forward, as well as a thumbnail sketch about their respective situations and their chances of returning.

We know that some people think stats are for losers. But we believe that, when given some context and deconstructed with the help of some film breakdown, they can be very illustrative, and help give a clearer picture of where a team succeeds or fails.

FOXBORO -- Aqib Talib is going to get paid this offseason. It won’t be by the Patriots, but he’ll get paid.

FOXBORO -- When it came to the Patriots, it was a total team breakdown the likes of which we haven’t seen in a long time.

Last week, it was clear Tom Brady was going against someone who had struggled to contain him in the past. This time around, Brady knows he’s in for more of a battle.

  If there was any doubt as to the overall value of Aaron Hernandez to the Patriots offense -- specifically, the passing game -- that should be put to rest for the remainder of the postseason.

Houston’s Wade Phillips has built a rep as one of the best defensive coordinators in the game -- he’s widely credited as being the final piece of the puzzle when it comes to the Texans and their maturation into a playoff team -- but he’s always had some issues when it comes to stopping

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was asked Wednesday morning when he looks at the video of him celebrating the win over the Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI, if he sees himself or some kid.

  If history is any guide, the fact that the Patriots hold an advantage when it comes to playoff experience as well as the fact that they have an older roster means they’ll beat the Texans Sunday in their playoff clash at Gillette Stadium.

In 2009, Wes Welker was denied one potential career-defining playoff run when he suffered a devastating injury in the regular-season finale against the Texans. Now, with the Patriots set to face Houston in Sunday’s divisional playoffs, the slot receiver has another opportunity to add to his legacy.

Bill Belichick said Sunday that when it comes to preparing for Sunday’s divisional playoff matchup between the Patriots and Texans, you shouldn’t go looking for hints in the regular-season matchup between the two games.

  It's the postseason. You've got questions -- some very good ones regarding the Ravens, the Broncos and the rest of the AFC. And we've got answers. With a mix of playoff (and offseason) queries about the Patriots and some of their rivals, let's get to it with a postseason mailbag.

The NFL is a quarterback-driven league, and typically, it is the elite quarterbacks (read: not the Mark Sanchezes of the world) who are playing deep in January.
