Patriots Talk

Football is a complicated game, with a nuanced language all its own. But if you boil it down, the Patriots' offense amounts to "hit 'em where they ain't."
The fractured arm suffered by Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski on Sunday "had nothing to do with whether the arm was ready or not," according to a source. Just bad break in every sense.
It's that time of year again, and Bill Belichick can't hide his excitement. Relatively speaking.
The Patriots ended the regular season ranked third in covering kickoffs, allowing 20.5 yards per return. Sunday against the Texans, Danieal Manning had a 54-yard average on his four kickoff returns.
The Patriots are bringing former assistant coach Brian Daboll back into the fold. Bill Belichick told this to reporters Monday during a conference call.
The opening kick off caught the Patriots by surprised, but they recovered to impose their will on the helpless Texans and continue along their path to greatness.
Tom E. Curran is back with a review of his preview of the Patriots-Texans AFC Divisional Round game.
