FOXBORO -- No team in the AFC will rely more on its rookies to get it through the postseason than the Patriots.

FOXBORO -- Aqib Talib couldn’t stop smiling.

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

FOXBORO -- “Friggin’ Baltimore,” said Tom Brady with a sigh.

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

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.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- For the Patriots, opportunity wasn’t just knocking. It was beating the door off the hinges.
Christopher Price

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 - 1:03am
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

It’s a split-second decision: High or low?
Christopher Price
12/09/2013 - 12:41pm
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 - 12:35am
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 - 10:10pm
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 - 10:29pm
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.
Christopher Price
11/28/2013 - 12:47am
FOXBORO -- Rob Gronkowski probably wasn’t interested in marking the anniversary.
Christopher Price
11/27/2013 - 12:09am
Much has been made of Stevan Ridley’s ball security issues over the last year-plus, as the running back has come under fire for his four lost fumbles this season -- three of which have come in the last three games.
Christopher Price
11/25/2013 - 2:43pm
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.
Christopher Price
11/22/2013 - 12:28am
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.
