Law: 'Gostkowski couldn't handle the pressure'

Ty Law knows a thing or two about playing with clutch kickers -- Adam Vinatieri anyone? So when Stephen Gostkowski missed what would have been a game-winning 42-yard field goal on Sunday, his mind went straight to that comparison.

He's probably not alone, as many Patriots fans did the same.

Gostkowski hasn't been in many high pressure situations since joining the team, but he failed to convert in one this time.

Do you think he can handle the pressure?

(And oh by the way, Vinatieri hit a game-winning field goal in Indianapolis Sunday)

Andrew Hawkins celebrates joining Patriots with 'Ballers' spoof

Andrew Hawkins' situation isn't far off from a character in HBO's "Ballers." And he played into those connections with a video on Twitter.

The slot receiver, who signed with the Patriots on Wednesday, shares some similarities with the fictional football player Rickey Jerret, a veteran receiver who wades through interest from a number of teams, including New England, during free agency. Because of those similarities, Hawkins spoofed on a scene from "Ballers" where Jerret works out with Patriots receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. Hawkins imposes his face over Jerret's.
