FOXBORO -- With the Patriots set to meet the Ravens on Sunday night in Baltimore, it’ll mean New England football fans will get another opportunity to get their fill of defensive back Bernard Pollard, one of the greatest villains in franchise history.

FOXBORO -- Julian Edelman knows his role has changed this season.
Christopher Price
09/17/2012 - 1:32am
FOXBORO -- After Patriots losses, there’s no better place to find the truth than at Logan Mankins’ locker. The veteran left guard is honest -- sometimes to a fault -- and never spares himself or anyone else on the roster in his assessment of what went wrong.

  Here are the ten matchups we’re looking forward to seeing in Sunday’s Patriots-Cardinals game at Gillette Stadium:

  FOXBORO -- Bill Belichick is a sports fan, so when he was asked Sunday afternoon about how things changed for Ryan Mallett over the weekend, it wasn’t a surprise to hear him use a baseball analogy.

  With the understanding that things can change between now and the start of the regular season, here are a few thoughts on what was a whirlwind day for the Patriots and their roster:

By 9 p.m. on Friday, every team in the NFL has to be down to 53 players. While there will be movement after the deadline -- remember that the Patriots picked up Brian Waters, Danny Aiken, A.J. Edds and Dan Gronkowski between cuts and the start of the regular season -- here’s a look at what we believe the New England roster will look like when all is said and done Friday night.

The final preseason game of the year offers all sorts of intriguing storylines for the Patriots.
Christopher Price
08/27/2012 - 10:14pm
With Monday’s cuts, the Patriots have started narrowing the field in an attempt to get down to 53 before the Friday deadline. With our initial roster projections now in shambles with Monday’s moves, here’s another shot at who is going to survive, with a few practice squad candidates tossed in for good measure. OFFENSE (25)

Stevan Ridley is ready for his star turn.

The third preseason game is the dress rehearsal, the one that everyone points to as the final chance for the starters to get their work in before kicking back and watching the preseason finale.
Christopher Price
08/23/2012 - 2:35pm
With another week of preseason in the books, there are more changes to our final 53-man roster. With some clarity regarding the status of linebacker Dane Fletcher and defensive lineman Jonathan Fanene, things have started to become a little clearer on the defensive side of the ball. Meanwhile, there’s also some shuffling on the offensive side of the ball.
Christopher Price
08/22/2012 - 11:03am
With the Patriots in a stretch of three games in 10 days and the first round of cuts looming in less than a week, a handful of players have to maximize their opportunities in the limited amount of practice time they have.
Christopher Price
08/21/2012 - 4:27am
FOXBORO -- It was the unquestioned low point of the night for a Patriots’ offensive line that has already had a few of them this summer.
Christopher Price
08/19/2012 - 5:23pm
In the second preseason game, things get a little more exciting, as starters usually play for nearly a half, while with the first series of cuts looming in just over a week (rosters must be down to 80 by Aug. 27), the snaps become so much more important for the guys on the roster bubble.
Christopher Price
08/17/2012 - 12:44am
FOXBORO -- While there’s always a bit of an edge at training camp -- the constant heat, humidity and crashing into the same guys over and over again would leave even the Dalai Lama short-tempered -- this summer, there’s been plenty of fight in these Patriots.
Christopher Price
08/15/2012 - 11:04pm
FOXBORO -- If there’s any team that can handle a crowded receivers’ meeting room, it’s the Patriots.
Christopher Price
08/14/2012 - 1:07am
FOXBORO -- Whether he gets a chance to play out his entire career in a Patriots uniform or ends up finishing with another franchise, there will be a day when Tom Brady is no longer the Patriots’ quarterback. And with Brady turning 35 earlier this month, that day will come sooner rather than later.
Christopher Price
08/13/2012 - 12:56am
FOXBORO -- The sheriff has returned.

Ian Browne reflects on 10th anniversary of Red Sox-Yankees brawl

A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
