Here are the 10 premiere matchups in Sunday’s Patriots-Seahawks game in Seattle:
Christopher Price
10/11/2012 - 8:59pm
FOXBORO -- The 2010 Patriots were the modern-day gold standard for takeaways -- they finished the regular season at a remarkable plus-28.
Christopher Price
10/10/2012 - 3:03pm
In a battle between one of the league’s best offenses and the league’s toughest defenses, the Patriots will try and stretch their winning streak to three Sunday when they face the Seahawks in Seattle.
Christopher Price
10/10/2012 - 12:34am
While the 2007 Patriots set the standard for offensive excellence, it’s clear that after the first five games, the 2012 offense is just as potent. 
Christopher Price
10/08/2012 - 10:24pm
FOXBORO -- As was the case in 2011, the signature element of this year’s Patriots’ offense is the quick pace.
Christopher Price
10/08/2012 - 2:37am
FOXBORO -- Bill Belichick’s gridiron consigliere Ernie Adams is known throughout the Patriots organization as having a near perfect ability to recall football situations and strategy from decades ago.
Christopher Price

Here are the 10 premiere matchups in Sunday’s Patriots-Broncos game:
Christopher Price
10/05/2012 - 12:19am
FOXBORO -- It’s a small sample size, but it appears the Patriots may have found their next great undrafted gem in Brandon Bolden. 
Christopher Price
10/03/2012 - 4:32pm
FOXBORO -- There are few similarities between last year’s Broncos offense and this year’s squad.
Christopher Price
10/02/2012 - 4:20pm
Watching the performance of undrafted free agent running back Brandon Bolden on Sunday against the Bills, it got us thinking about undrafted players and their place in Patriots history. The stories of undrafted gems like Bolden are often studies in perseverance -- these are not first-rounders who start their professional lives with plenty of security.
Christopher Price
10/01/2012 - 11:05pm
  The challenge came down from coach Bill Belichick last week.
Christopher Price
10/01/2012 - 4:37am
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- There was no panic, at least not in the Patriots’ defensive huddle.
Christopher Price

  Here are the 10 matchups we’re looking forward to seeing Sunday when the Patriots meet the Bills in upstate New York.

The Patriots will open their division slate Sunday afternoon Buffalo with a game against the Bills. In this edition of “Scout’s Take,” one NFL scout who has watched both the Patriots and the Bills takes a look at some of the points of emphasis for New England heading into Sunday’s game.
Christopher Price
09/26/2012 - 9:09pm
FOXBORO -- After a year-plus of record-setting numbers, Rob Gronkowski hit a speed bump Sunday night against the Ravens.
Christopher Price
09/25/2012 - 10:41pm
The 2011 Patriots were one of the better teams in the league when it came to finishing off drives -- they were fourth in the league when it came to red-zone touchdowns, clicking at a rate of 65.1 percent. But through three games in 2012, the red-zone numbers for the New England offense have dropped to 6-for-12, or 50 percent.
Christopher Price
09/24/2012 - 11:09pm
  BALTIMORE -- In the classic film “Glengarry Glen Ross,” Alec Baldwin’s character snarls, “Coffee is for closers.” With that in mind, the Patriots should be looking elsewhere for their caffeine this week.
Christopher Price
09/24/2012 - 5:33am
“It’s Baltimore, gentlemen. The Gods will not save you.” -- Police commissioner Ervin Burrell, “The Wire” BALTIMORE -- It was a game the Patriots had in their back pocket.
Christopher Price
09/22/2012 - 1:23pm
Here are the 10 matchups we’re going to be watching Sunday night when the Patriots meet the Ravens in Baltimore:
Christopher Price
09/20/2012 - 11:24pm
While some have questioned the offensive rhythm of the Patriots through two games -- and wondered how much things will change under new offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels -- one thing they’ve stayed consistent with is their use of the no-huddle offense.
Christopher Price
09/20/2012 - 3:41pm
FOXBORO -- When it comes to replacing Aaron Hernandez in the Patriots’ offense, Kellen Winslow Jr. knows he’ll only be a small part of the puzzle.
Christopher Price
09/20/2012 - 12:20am
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.
Christopher Price
09/18/2012 - 12:34am
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.
Christopher Price

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