Bill Belichick Has No Answer For Damien Harris' Odd Usage In Patriots Loss

5 days ago   |   By NESN

Sign In
The Houston Texans came into Week 11 with one of the NFL's worst run defenses. The Patriots headed into Sunday with one of the league's best rushing attacks.
It might surprise you that the Patriots dropped back to pass 42 times and ran the ball just 24 times Sunday. Now that you know that, it might not be shocking that the Patriots lost to the Texans 27-20 in their Week 11 matchup.
What was most odd is that Patriots starting running back Damien Harris carried the ball five times for 25 yards and a touchdown as New England's offense looked unstoppable on their opening drive. Harris...

Cam Newton Tips Hat To J.J. Watt After Four Passes Batted In Patriots Loss

5 days ago   |   By NESN

New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton had a simple answer when asked what led to him throwing four incomplete passes that were batted at the line of scrimmage by Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.
“He's J.J. Watt,” Newton said laughing. “What do you expect?”
Watt was tied for sixth among NFL defenders with three batted passes through nine games coming into Sunday's 27-20 Patriots loss. Watt more than doubled that total in Week 11 alone and now has seven on the season. Baltimore Ravens defensive end Calais Campbell led the NFL with five batted passes heading into Sunday's...

The New England Patriots' playoff window is all but closed after getting upset by the Houston Texans and falling to 4-6 on the season.
After consecutive wins against the New York Jets and Baltimore Ravens, the Patriots looked back on the right track. They derailed against a feisty 3-7 Texans team carried by superstar quarterback DeShaun Watson, who completed 28-of-37 passes for 344 yards with two passing touchdowns and six carries for 36 yards with another score.
And the Patriots continue to play up or down to their competition as they lost 27-20.
So, what went wrong?

Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels dug into his bag of tricks Sunday in the first half of New England's game against the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium.
First, with the score tied 7-7 in the second quarter, the Patriots ran a reverse in which running back Rex Burkhead flipped the ball to wide receiver Damiere Byrd. The play resulted in an 11-yard pickup and a first down for New England.
