His hand stitched shut and his confidence only restored in the 24 hours before Sunday's AFC title game, Tom Brady wasn't going to be fazed by a 10-point deficit against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He had overcome more dire circumstances in his last two Super Bowls. The 10-point fourth quarter...

Welcome to the nightmare of a nation (minus a few states). The Patriots are heading to another Super Bowl. Too bad world. There is no waking up from this bad dream. You could feel it on social media for three hours. So many were so happy. Those fans in Gillette Stadium, not so much. But nobody...

Let's just accept that we won't know the truth about Tom Brady until Sunday's opening drive. The Patriots quarterback missed Wednesday's press conference to meet with the medical staff.

The Patriots don't play the Jaguars until Sunday, but it's never too early to start blaming the referees, and this weekend's assignments should send a shudder down the spine of Patriots fans. Clete Blakeman's crew gets the game, and it's possible no ref has been tougher on the team's bottom line in...

From snap to release, the throw against one of the league's most aggressive pass rushes required 1.92 seconds. That was enough time for a three-step drop and scan of two tight ends running shallow routes to the right, one sitting on the hash, the other in the flat. Three defenders had them...

Here's what stands between Tom Brady and an unprecedented sixth Super Bowl title: Blake Bortles, Case Keenum, and Nick Foles. Diesel up those Duck Boats, because we know how this story ends.
