In this episode of Patriots Fourth And Two, we started the show by looking back at the Patriots victory against the Colts. We ended the show by previewing the upcoming game against the Chiefs.
He started the first drive of the game by going 9-9 and throwing a touchdown pass to Cordarrelle Patterson. His only incompletion of his first 13 was a drop
It was both the 500th of Brady’s career making him just the 3rd player to do so, Gordon’s TD reception made him the 71st player to catch a TD from Brady
Andrew Luck be targeting Eric Ebron heavily tonight. Chung will no doubt see a lot of action against Ebron and it should be an intriguing matchup to watch.
White is the X-Factor in the offense, as with his full complement of receivers this week, Brady may be able to find mismatches for his talented RB
In this episode, we started the show by looking back at the Patriots victory against the Dolphins. We then ended the show by previewing the upcoming game against the Colts.
The Indianapolis Colts may not have gotten their man with Josh McDaniels, but it appears they’ve been successful in poaching a New England coach to fill one of their coaching vacancies.
McDaniels had plenty of reasons to stay. And not the least of which is his family. His wife is from the area and his kids go to an exclusive private school in Walpole.
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.
Week 16 is unique, with neither Thursday nor Sunday night football – but with two games on Monday. Five teams have clinched a playoff spot and 14 others are still in contention for the post-season. There are plenty of intriguing games worth watching this weekend and next before the playoffs commence. The theory of home field advantage will be put to a test during these three days. Road teams are favored in ten of the sixteen games this week.
More than half of the remaining NFL Week 12 games have odds of seven or more points. On paper there are few competitive games, but that doesn’t mean a whole lot. Last week the Chiefs were double-digit favorites but lost to a one-win Giants club in disarray. Washington was an injury riddled 7½ point road dog up against a hot team on a seven game winning streak.
NFL Week 10 has plenty of interesting story lines. On Sunday night the Patriots travel to their house of horrors, Denver’s Mile High Stadium. The Pats are 2-6 since 2005 in Colorado, and 4-18 in the Rockies since 1969. Despite that alarming trend the Patriots are 7½ point favorites as of Saturday night.
NFL Week 7 is highlighted by the most hyped and anticipated game of the 2017 season. The Atlanta Falcons travel to Foxborough for only the second time this millennium, in a rematch of the greatest Super Bowl in NFL history. The Patriots lead the all-time series 8-6 and are 5-0 in the Belichick-Brady era.
In a network decision nobody anticipated before the 2017 NFL season began, a Sunday afternoon Jets game will be broadcast to most of the nation. Three games dominate the NFL Week 6 afternoon broadcast distribution. Most of the nation will be fed the following games Sunday afternoon. In the early time slot CBS will air the New England Patriots at New York Jets for the lead in the AFC East.
The one line that may raise eyebrows (and set pro football back eighty years) involves Cleveland and Indianapolis. Despite the fact that the baseball team in Cleveland has won more games in three weeks than their football team has since early 2011, the Browns are favored by three point – on the road – against the Colts.
