Whenever I’ve looked at the Patriots upcoming schedule recently, this is the game that keeps standing out. Would this be the Patriots’ biggest remaining challenge? Who will we actually see play in this game? Will we see a classic Andy Reid mistake? How will the Patriots deal with a scrambling QB?

With Michael Vick, Jeremy Maclin, Desean Jackson, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and now Nnamdi Asomugha all knicked up, this might be the best time for the Patriots to be facing off against Philly.

Here are some things I’ll be looking out for in Sunday’s game:


Patriots vs Bills: The Aftermath

That one wasn’t fun. You’ve got to give the Bills credit though, they’ve had two incredible second half comebacks in a row now. Coming back from 21 down and winning 34-31 is impressive no matter how much help you had from the other team.

To clear up any confusion, it made sense for Belichick to take that timeout after the near Fred Jackson TD. The clock started running as soon as the play wasn’t ruled a TD. Belichick just wanted the 13 seconds that had run down after the play back onto the clock.

Here are my thoughts on the game:

Now that we’ve all had a night to digest the Patriots second win of the season, I’ll break down my six keys to victory over San Diego:

Aaron Hernandez Patriots

There is a new #85 to be watching this year - although that Hernandez seems pretty decent too.

It’s hard to believe that we’re already back here; with all the lockout drama this offseason, at times it felt like we may never see our teams hit the gridiron again.

But nevertheless, Week 1 is here and both the Patriots and the Dolphins are looking at a must-win game. The past few years, New England has seen relatively good regular-season performances sprinkled with post-season misadventures.

Devin McCourty Patriots

Devin McCourty heads up the list of Patriots second-year players.

NEPD Staff Writer: Doug Kyed

With the Patriots playing their second preseason game Thursday night, I figured there’s no better time to look at all of the second year players on the Patriots roster and where they might stand coming into this game.

Last year’s draft was one of the best Patriots drafts of all time, so there’s a lot of exciting players on this list.

Patriots Devin McCourty

Who will join Devin McCourty in the 2011 Patriots defensive backfield?

NEPD Staff Writer: Doug Kyed

With free agency and a season finally on the horizon, I figured I’d look at a position where free agency will probably not play a huge role this season for the Patriots. I’m going to tackle perhaps my favorite NFL position group, the defensive backs.


Early Returns on Patriots Rookies: Landslide Victory

Devin McCourty

Devin McCourty is just one of the Patriots 2010 Draft Picks to make a mark this season.

Around the web and print media, excluding yours truly of course, the 2010 Patriots Draft Class was widely panned (see Borges, Ron) for having eschewed some more well-known names for guys that “nobody had even heard of” – the likes of Devin McCourty, Jermaine Cunningham, and others.

Six weeks into the season, it is time for us, and you, to weigh in on how the rookies are developing in the Patriots system.
