Here’s the latest Patriots and NFL news for Monday, April 12, 2021.
NFL Week 11 looks like it will have plenty of close games. There are no double-digit favorites, and only one game with a spread of more than seven. Home teams are favored in only half of the 14 scheduled games, and nine games have odds of 3½ or fewer points.
Happy Birthday to Chris Long, who headlines March 28 in New England Patriots’ history.
Best social media postings from the Patriots week 13 victory over the Los Angeles Rams.
We know the story lines in New England after the Patriots’ 26-10 victory at Gillette Stadium on Sunday. Here are a handful of reactions from the City of Angels and beyond. The Rams lost for the seventh time in their last eight games. For what it is worth it is safe to say that Bill Belichick owns Jeff Fisher. In the last three games between the two head coaches the Hoodie’s squads are 3-0, outscoring Fisher’s clubs by a combined score of 130-17.
John Madden who would foretell what was to come when he said, “What Tom Brady just did on that final drive, gave me goosebumps.”
With the “Pony” backfield of James White and Dion Lewis in the passing game, there will be too many weapons to guard and the Patriots should find success.
Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher incorrectly names Patriots running backs during conference call.
The Rams (4-7), continue their mediocrity under coach Jeff Fisher. They always teeter between making the jump to being a good team and doing enough to lose.
For the third consecutive week the New England Patriots were listed as the heaviest favorite in these early odds. After two weeks on the road the Pats return to Gillette Stadium. The Westgate lists the Patriots as 14 point home favorites against Los Angeles.
As has been the case nearly all season, this week there is a paucity of games between teams that both have winning records. There are only three games that fit in that category this week (and just two for the entire day Sunday): the Patriots at Jets in an early game, Green Bay at Arizona late, and then Cincinnati at Denver on Monday night.
How could the Rams trainers NOT know Keenum was concussed? And watching him struggle to regain his feet, why didn’t the officials on-hand stop play and have him evaluated?
