6 days ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

Rivers' style of play - resembling in some ways that of his counterpart Sunday - is a relative rarity in an NFL where mobile quarterbacks have become the norm.

6 days ago   |   By NESN

Rob Gronkowski caught one pass Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers, ultimately rumbling his way to a 25-yard gain, delighting more than 60,000 New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
The crowd's roar might be the final time Patriots fans get a chance to cheer the tight end's efforts on the Foxboro field, as it seems retirement is a legitimate possibility for No. 87.
Gronkowski's retirement dance is nothing new, and he even threatened to walk away last spring, but NFL Media's Ian Rapoport doubled down Monday on his previous reporting when discussing Gronkowski's future, saying it's...

The 2018 New England Patriots always had talent. They just struggled throughout the season to put it all together into one magical performance.
That finally came Sunday, when the Patriots' passing attack, run game, pass rush, run defense and special teams combined for a 41-28 complete win over a Los Angeles Chargers team many deemed more talented. The Patriots proved in the divisional round of the AFC playoffs that was not the case.
Now the Patriots must find something else that was missing through 17 weeks of the regular season: consistency. If the Patriots can put together two more of...

6 days ago   |   By NESN

The New England Patriots silenced their doubters , at least momentarily.
Tom Brady and Co. eviscerated the Los Angeles Chargers , 41-28, in the AFC Divisional Round and it wasn't that close, as New England held a 28-point lead at halftime.

New England advanced to its eighth consecutive AFC Championship Game with the win, and head coach Bill Belichick couldn't have been...

The New England Patriots might be playing mind games with the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Patriots will host the Chargers on Sunday in an AFC Divisional Round matchup that will be played in sup-freezing temperatures. And if the Chargers didn't know that before , they sure do now, thanks to a thermometer taped to a wall that Philip Rivers and Co. will run by when they take the field.
Sounds fishy if you ask us.
