Steelers licking chops with Tom Brady Patriots in funk

It's safe to say that Monday's game in Miami did not go anywhere near according to plan for the New England Patriots.   And while Bill Belichick (true to form immediately after a loss) did not have much to say, there really wasn't much he had to say.   The team's play...

Burke: Patriots thrive after being humbled late in NFL regular season

The references that Bill Belichick was making in practice to his team were probably getting quite stale in the past few weeks. “Hey Gilmore, remember when you got torched on that play against Carolina two months ago?!” “Hey Malcolm, remember Alex Smith shredding you a few days...

When will Carson Wentz be back, return? 2018 opener doubtful

Eagles fans better get used to seeing Nick Foles under center. After Carson Wentz' ACL-tearing hit against the Rams Sunday — a record-setting and NFC East clinching victory for the MVP front-runner — the news isn't really great for a speedy return. "Based on the video it...

Patriots humiliated by Dolphins: How bad was this loss for the Pats?

Miami Yikes: Those AFC East champs T-shirts and hats will have to wait. It was ugly, all the way around. Just when it seemed Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was primed to even his career record in Miami, New England delivered its weakest performance of the season in an embarrassing, 27-20 loss...

When will Carson Wentz return? And three other burning questions

Carson Wentz has a torn ACL. That we know. He will probably get surgery and the rehab. But information is scarse. The Eagles are chasing a Super Bowl — at 11-2 — and have a first round bye within reach. But fans are looking past this season already and into the future. Will that future...

Glen Macnow: Time to rally around Nick Foles — there's no other choice

Never did clinching a division title feel this empty. One moment Carson Wentz slings his 33rd TD of the year to break the franchise record, and minutes later, Fox’s Erin Andrews whispers that Eagles trainers were “shaking their heads” after jiggling Wentz’s left knee in the...

In MeToo climate Tom Brady NFL want this video clip buried

Tom Brady has been an NFL quarterback for so long (he was drafted in the 2000 NFL Draft by the Patriots), that commercials and TV appearances he made early in his football career can seem outdated. Brady hosted Saturday Night Live in 2005 after winning his third Super Bowl and the skit that got...

Jets throttled by Broncos as they fall out of playoff hunt

The New York Jets just can’t stand prosperity, and they’ve shown that time and again this season. But Sunday’s 23-0 defeat to the woeful Denver Broncos was the epitome of Gang Green not being able to take advantage of what should’ve been a gimme win.    Heading...

3 things to watch for when Eagles, Rams duel in Los Angeles

It may be overstating it a bit to proclaim that the Eagles' 2017 season is riding on the result of their Week 14 game against the Rams. But their Super Bowl hopes could take an enormous hit if they can't prevail against the 9-3 surprise NFC West favorites. After falling last week in...
