Kraft: 'Prayers' for Menino and family

Patriots owner Robert Kraft has issued a statement on the passing of Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.

‘€œToday is a sad day for so many in Boston who are mourning the loss of  Mayor Menino.

Branch, Chandler Jones missing at Pats practice

Brady earns AFC Offensive Player of the Month

FOXBORO -€“ From the ruins of September came the resurgence of October for Tom Brady.

The Patriots quarterback Thursday was named AFC Offensive Player of the Month for October. After going 2-2 in September and looking like a beaten down quarterback in a 41-14 loss in Kansas City, Brady has responded with one of the best four-game stretches of his career.
