New England Patriots News and NFL Notes for Wednesday, 4/6/2022
Julian Edelman pays tribute to Phillip Rivers following news of his retirement from professional football after 17 seasons.
Brady’s best pass was in the fourth quarter. Brady lasered a BB down the field that Edelman turned into a 35-yard gain.
the Pats offense rolled up 35 points, 347 yards, and 24 first downs, numbers that usually add up to a good game by halftime.
Julian Edelman needs just five catches today to move past Reggie Wayne for second place all-time in playoff receptions. Not bad for a college QB.
The key for the Patriots is to get pressure on Rivers and force the Chargers to keep their running backs in for pass protection.
In this episode, we looked back at the games on Wild Card Weekend to begin the show. However, the majority of this episode is breaking down the upcoming Divisional Round Playoff Game for the Patriots against the Chargers. This is an in depth super sized preview of the upcoming game.
The Bolts came back from 16 points down on the road in Pittsburgh and 14 points down on the road in Kansas City to win both games…
The backs were virtually uncoverable in the passing game, they caught 14 passes out of 15 attempts for 163 yards as a group
The Patriots were just 1-4 in the red zone and coupled with two Stephen Gostkowski missed field goals, this one could have easily been in the blowout mode
Look for the Patriots to run right at them behind Shaq Mason on the right side. Controlling the tempo and keeping the pass rush of the Bolts at bay is key
Rivers’ toughness is without question, leading up to the 2007 AFC Championship Game, he tore his ACL and still played the entire game in New England
Despite an abundance of injuries, NFL week five’s Monday night football game should be a good one. Although the two clubs are just 2-2, the San Diego Chargers and Pittsburgh Steelers both have legitimate playoff aspirations for this 2015 season. Pittsburgh is coming off a 23-20 home overtime loss to the Ravens a week ago Thursday, while the Chargers eked out a 30-27 home victory over the Browns last Sunday. Both teams are currently 2-2 and are seeking to keep within two games of undefeated leaders in their respective divisions (the 5-0 Denver Broncos and Cincinnati Bengals).
