Despite a late surge, the New England Patriots managed to hold off the Philadelphia Eagles, 31-22, in the preseason opener. Yet for all intents and purposes, the final score was insignificant.

How individual players and personnel units fared was what carried weight.

Now like all exhibition contests, the Aug. 9 tilt was less so about the end result than it was about the performances that led to the end result. Cohesion is a work in progress at this point for the Patriots. And with a 90-man roster, the first-team offense and defense garnered a limited workload during Week 1 of the preseason.

But they still did garner a workload.

Ranking the Patriots Roster from #90 to #1

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

Where does Brandon Spikes rank on the 2013 Patriots?

NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko

Tomorrow all the attention will be focused on the new football season and that the Patriots are back on the practice field. It won’t take long for the focus to shift towards what players will make the final roster. With 90 active players on the roster 37 of them will be cut before the end of summer. Where does each player rank on the roster and what chances do they actually have to make the final 53? I rank the roster from top to bottom and explore the chances of each player.

Will we see Tim Tebow throwing passes in New England? Perhaps in practice.

NEPD Editor: James Christensen

The unthinkable or inevitable – depending on which side of the aisle you’re sitting on in the Church of Tebow – has happened. Bill Belichick and Tim Tebow, two of the most polarizing figures in all of the NFL, are finally together. Somewhere Urban Meyer is smiling.

What should Patriots fans expect out of Tebow this season?

Now that the NFL Draft and the majority of the free agent signing period has passed, the Patriots 2013 roster is starting to take shape. A clearer picture of the roster is beginning to take shape, although this roster is far from a finished product. There is still almost three months until the start of camp and plenty of time to add more pieces to the roster.

Where can the Patriots afford to add more help? What positions still need some depth? What moves could the Patriots still make?

I examine what types of moves might be made between now and the start of training camp.

This entire week I have been completely overtaken by the unfortunate events that occurred in Boston. Much like all of you, I spent my entire Friday glued to the news stations, watching and listening to the manhunt.

This past week we all had our attention on the city of Boston and it was easy for us to put the sports-world on the back-burner. Now that police and law enforcement have suspects in custody, I’d like to offer you a bit of a distraction.

With news surfacing that the New England Patriots will likely try to reach a contract extension with Wes Welker prior to free agency on March 12, the Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady have agreed to a contract extension—an extension for Welker could very well be in the future.
