DENVER -- Bill Belichick didn’t want to stop talking.

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady healed up pretty quickly from whatever bug was bothering him over the last week or so -- after being listed on Wednesday’s injury report with “right shoulder/illness,” his name disappeared from Thursday’s report completely.

01/16/2014 - 5:16pm
FOXBORO -- Aqib Talib, mentor?

FOXBORO -- The Patriots have always been known as a team with some level of offensive flexibility, but regardless of what happens in Sunday’s AFC title game against the Broncos, the 2013 team will ultimately be remembered as an offensive chameleon, able to change from week to week with an amazing dex

01/12/2014 - 6:46am
FOXBORO -- The Patriots didn’t wear their throwbacks uniforms this year, but Saturday night would have been a good time to bust out a vintage New England jersey from 2001, 2003 or 2004.
Christopher Price
01/09/2014 - 6:47pm
FOXBORO -- If you want to know how to make movies, you ask Steven Spielberg. Got a question about making money, call Bill Gates. And if you have a question about toughness, you go to Logan Mankins.
Christopher Price
01/09/2014 - 12:42am
FOXBORO -- This past offseason, Aqib Talib bet on himself. But while he’s had an impressive regular season, he knows that a big playoff performance could mean a big payoff sooner rather than later.
Christopher Price
01/07/2014 - 12:50am
For the last 20 years or so, the formula for a championship offense was simple: elite quarterback, standout skill position players at wide receiver and/or tight end, and singular feature back who was capable of 250 to 300 carries a year to help carry the load on the ground. Lather, rinse, repeat.
Christopher Price
01/02/2014 - 1:17am
FOXBORO -- No team in the AFC will rely more on its rookies to get it through the postseason than the Patriots.
Christopher Price
12/30/2013 - 3:40am
FOXBORO -- Aqib Talib couldn’t stop smiling. 
Christopher Price

BALTIMORE -- The roar told you everything you needed to know.

12/19/2013 - 5:08pm
FOXBORO -- “Friggin’ Baltimore,” said Tom Brady with a sigh.
Christopher Price
12/19/2013 - 12:29am
FOXBORO -- The last two years, the Patriots offense has been the football equivalent of high-speed DSL. This year, it’s been more like old-school dial-up.
Christopher Price
12/17/2013 - 1:08am
For a Patriots team that had played well in the clutch and embraced big moments over most of the first 13 games, seeing breakdowns in all three phases of the game down the stretch Sunday was a surprise. Even for them.
Christopher Price
12/16/2013 - 12:53am
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- For the Patriots, opportunity wasn’t just knocking. It was beating the door off the hinges.
Christopher Price
12/13/2013 - 2:00am
FOXBORO -- No skill position player on the Patriots roster this season has done a better job of taking advantage of the opportunity presented to him than Julian Edelman.
Christopher Price
12/12/2013 - 2:03am
FOXBORO -- There is almost always a disarming sense of practicality to the way the Patriots have done business over the years, and that was evident again Wednesday as they began preparing in earnest for the remainder of the 2013 season -- a slate of games that will not involve Rob Gronkowski.
Christopher Price
12/10/2013 - 11:43pm
It’s a split-second decision: High or low?
Christopher Price
12/09/2013 - 1:41pm
Moving on from Rob Gronkowski will be difficult, but it’s not like the Patriots don’t have experience in this area.
Christopher Price
12/09/2013 - 1:35am
FOXBORO -- For a Patriots team that has had to deal with wave after wave of challenges through the first 13 games, what happened Sunday afternoon might very well be the breaking point.
Christopher Price
12/05/2013 - 11:10pm
FOXBORO -- One of the constant themes preached by Bill Belichick is “Ignore the noise.” But if the Patriots are able to stay on a roll throughout the rest of the regular season, he’ll find it harder and harder to tune out the buzz that will build around him when it comes to his Coach of t

FOXBORO -- Bill Belichick was in a good mood Wednesday morning, tossing out zingers at a reporter who pressed him repeatedly over the course of the summer and fall about the health of Rob Gronkowski, as well as a jab at the Jets

With the final quarter of the season looming, the Patriots sit at 9-3, in possession of the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoff picture. However, there are still a few things that need to be answered between now and the start of the postseason.
Christopher Price

Since Vince Wilfork went down against the Falcons, the Patriots run defense has struggled to maintain order in the middle of the field. 
Christopher Price
12/01/2013 - 11:29pm
The Patriots’ 34-31 tractor pull of a win over the Texans Sunday afternoon in Houston was a late-season, grind-it-out victory that does nothing for New England’s BCS chances, but allows the Patriots to tear another day off the calendar while staying entrenched in that No. 2 spot in the AFC playoff picture.
