Because it shows the dedication that is needed to not only perform at an elite level in the NFL but to do so at an age where most players are long since retired.

With the big men up front, the Patriots may try to keep them in their base look and then go hurry up to wear those big men down.
The Titans know that Brady has routinely carved up this style of defense, so look for them to mix in plenty of man coverage this week.
The 2017-18 NFL playoffs have progressed to the second round. Division playoff weekend is arguably the best of any NFL season.
The four best teams of the season are all playing.
At the same time NFL fans are treated to a four-game weekend, unlike the rest of the playoffs. And as opposed to this last weekend, we get to watch all of the best teams.
In what may be an unprecedented occurrence, the number six wild card team is a road favorite over the number one seed this post season.

Matt Patricia’s defense has made a remarkable turnaround. The Patriots allowed 128 points in their first four games. In their last 12, they’ve allowed 168. Think about that one…
Entering the game, a little-known fact was that the Patriots’ third-down defense had the fifth best opposing QB rating at just 80.3.
The 2017 NFL regular season wraps up on Sunday afternoon. There is not as much drama this year compared to the week 17 of many previous seasons. The 2017 NFL playoff picture is relatively settled. In the AFC there are four teams battling for two wild card spots. The NFC still has one division title up for grabs, but has just two teams competing for one final playoff slot.
And it has been quite a year for the Patriots. One thing that can be said about this team is that they can be many things, but boring is never one of them.
Mitchell has decent speed but isn’t a burner. He’s a move the chains kind of guy who can make the tough catches against man coverage.
No James White, no Rex Burkhead? No problem. Dion Lewis, the guy whose name former Bills coach Rex Ryan claimed he didn’t know slashed Buffalo again.
Good morning, here are your Sunday’s Patriots news 12-24, & AFC East Notes. RIP to Dick Enberg, one of the best announcers we’ve had the pleasure of listening to. He […]
In Week 16 ten road teams are favored to win. That number falls back to a more typical number in Week 17, with five home dogs. The Saints are the biggest road favorite, minus 8½ points at Tampa Bay. The largest spread of the week is in Foxboro, where the Patriots are favored by 16 versus the Jets. That game is one of four double-digit spreads. The narrowest odds are with Houston as a one-point underdog at Indianapolis.
Entering Week 16 five teams have clinched a playoff spot. The Patriots, Steelers, Jaguars, Eagles and Vikings have all punched a ticket for the post season. Philadelphia is the only team thus far to earn a first round bye.
In the AFC six teams have been eliminated: the Browns, Colts, Texans, Broncos, Bengals and Jets. The Dolphins and Raiders are technically alive, but comatose and on life support. The Chargers are not in much better shape, even though they are only one game behind the Chiefs in the AFC West. Most likely it is Ravens, Titans and Bills battling for two wild card spots.
The Giants, Bears, Forty Niners, Bucs, Cardinals, Skins and Packers are all officially eliminated. Dallas, Seattle and Detroit face tall odds to get in. Philadelphia and Minnesota have won their divisions and will host at least one playoff game. The only way the Rams don’t win the NFC West is to lose twice while Seattle wins twice. The NFC South is probably going to send three teams to the playoffs. Games involving the Saints, Panthers and Falcons are the most intriguing over the next two weeks. Atlanta is at New Orleans this week, and then the Falcons host Carolina next week.
