It’s a tough mix.

FOXBORO -- As late Sunday night gave way to early Monday morning in a raucous Patriots locker room, Devin McCourty had a simple explanation as to how the Patriots pulled off the most ridiculous comeback win in recent franchise history.

This week’s Patriots-Broncos contest sets up to be one of the premiere regular-season games of the year, and not just because of the showdown between Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.

FOXBORO -- It’s still odd to see.
Christopher Price
11/21/2013 - 12:40am
FOXBORO -- It’s not always advisable to go too deeply inside the numbers looking for statistical patterns when you talk about the Patriots -- New England is a game-plan team that has the ability to use multiple looks on both sides of the ball.

It was a distinct shot across the bow of Aqib Talib, and a reminder of just how tenuous things are when it comes to the Patriots secondary.

There were opportunities. Oh, how there were opportunities.

Where have all the bell cows gone?

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady is playing a lot better than you think -- or at least better than most of the numbers show. Take it from the best in the game, past and present. Despite some of the statistical struggles, he still commands respect from almost anyone who has spent time under center.
Christopher Price

It doesn’t have the breathless “will-he-or-won’t-he” drama of Gronk Watch that occupied the first six weeks of the regular season, but the return of running back Shane Vereen -- and the impact he can have on the

FOXBORO -- Say what you will about the 2013 Patriots -- they certainly haven’t been boring.
Christopher Price
11/07/2013 - 11:40am
With nine games in the books, the Patriots will have the weekend off as they head into their bye week. Considering the offseason changes and the early season injuries, the 7-2 record is a sign they have outperformed some of the expectations that were placed on them at the start of the year.
Christopher Price
11/06/2013 - 12:42am
FOXBORO -- There’s no way of really knowing, but you get the distinct impression that if they ever crossed paths, Matthew Slater and Richie Incognito wouldn’t exactly see eye to eye.

11/04/2013 - 5:32pm
The Patriots offense put together an offensive explosion Sunday against the Steelers, the likes of which haven't been seen at Gillette Stadium for many years.
Christopher Price
11/04/2013 - 2:41am
FOXBORO -- The days become shorter, the temperature starts to drop, and the game starts to change. Football in November and December changes dramatically -- the intensity starts to ramp up, and the sense of urgency begins to increase.
Christopher Price

FOXBORO -- Rob Ninkovich is many things to many people: Jets-killer.

FOXBORO -- Devin McCourty could be on the verge of making history.

FOXBORO -- Good things happen when the Patriots run the football.
Christopher Price
10/25/2013 - 12:13am
The issues the Patriots passing game had in 2006 led to the eventual acquisition of Randy Moss and Wes Welker and the complete overhaul of the offense. Will the early struggles of the passing game in 2013 lead to a similar makeover?

The Patriots’ third-quarter offensive struggles are so bad, they make the Buccaneers feel better about themselves.
Christopher Price
10/21/2013 - 2:23am
EAST RUTHERFORD -- The pass was flipped into the air by Tom Brady, a floater headed in the direction of Rob Gronkowski.

FOXBORO -- For the Patriots, the challenges keep on coming.
Christopher Price
10/14/2013 - 4:22pm
FOXBORO -- Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins and Josh Boyce are done with school, but there’s still plenty of classwork to worry about. They’re enrolled in NFL Offense 101, taught by Professor Tom Brady.
Christopher Price
10/14/2013 - 1:32am
FOXBORO -- It has been a trying season for Tom Brady.
Christopher Price
10/11/2013 - 10:47pm
FOXBORO -- For the Patriots, decision day is looming when it comes to Brandon Spikes.
