Live look at Tom Brady's hands.
Is Brady's hand OK?  I'm hearing it's just a cut, not a break.  But who the heck knows?  I'm not going to freak out about it.  Nothing we can do about it at this point.  We won't know for sure until halfway through the first quarter anyway.

Here's three things I'm excited about for Sunday:

1) Rob Gronkowski - Visual reminder of what a matchup nightmare the Gronk is to cover. 

2) Dion Lewis - Easily the team MVP for the second half of the season.

3) Danny Amendola - You forget Amendolas on the team sometimes... and then he has an 11 catch 112 yard game against the Tita…

Three Things to Watch This Week - AFC Divisional Playoff Game

The defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots play Marcus Mariota and the Buffalo Bills at Gillette Stadium in the AFC Divisional Playoff round on Saturday January 13th at 8:15 PM.



I love watching Dion Lewis make tacklers miss.  I'll be sad if he's not back next year.

Since the Patriots were off the last two weeks, let's take a look at the opposition:

1) Derrick Henry (Titans RB) - That's a good baseball player name.  Sounds like a long reliever for the Cardinals.

2) Marcus Mariota (Titans QB) - How many touchdowns will he both throw AND catch?  Nobody knows for sure.

3) Mike Mularkey (Titans coach) - I like using his last name as a curse word.  Very satisfying.


My prediction: Pats 24, Titans 21

What a roller coaster of emotions that Pittsburgh game was.  Oh my.  It may have taken me a while to calm down after that.

Here's three things I liked last week.

1) Malcolm Butler - Butler made a HUGE tackle to keep his guy in bounds on the play before the final play last week.  That's a big part of the reason why the Steelers looked like a disorganized fire drill.

2) Duron Harmon - Nice interception!  Timely!

3) Rob Gronkowski - That whole last drive.  Whoa.  A guy that big shouldn't be able to move that well.  Also... Pittsburgh - that guy was KILLING you the whole second half. I dunno...  Maybe put an extra guy (or three) o…

(“I am one with the Force and the Force is with me.”)

I'm hoping last week was a fluke.  Because that game was no fun to watch.

No Thursday Morning Third Down Back Game Balls (TM) for anyone for Monday night's efforts.  Maybe the whole team was so excited for Last Jedi they forgot to practice last week?  Don't know.  Tough to say.

Here's three things I'll be watching this Sunday afternoon:


1) Kenny Britt - Kenny Britt?  Prisint! (Also, I did not realize he was 6'3''.  I didn't know WRs were allowed to be that tall.)

2) Rob Gronkowski - Gronk back?  Gronk back.  Good.  Now don't go out there and do antything stupid again.

3) Dion Lewis - Dion did NOT average 6 yards per carry last week.  I wa…

Decent game last week.  Thursday Morning Third Down Back Game Balls (TM) go to :

1) Eric Lee (who?) for having the game of his life against his former team last week.  Interception!Sack!

2) Dion Lewis - Dion had 92 yards on 15 carries for a gaudy 6.1 yard average. 

3) Rex Burkhead - Rex also averaged over 6 yards per card and added tw…

I'll say it...  I did not particularly care for the way the Dolphins played defense last week.  Bunch of cheap shot artists.

Here's three thoughts I had about last Sunday:

1) Nate Ebner - Great effort on the fake punt... and now he's done for the year.  Rat farts.

2) Trey Flowers - Probably having the best year of anyone on the defensive line.

3) Stephon Gilmore - I still think Butler is a better corner, but Gilmore has looked less awful out there as of late.

My prediction: Pats 24, Bills 16

Here's three things I liked about last week:

1) Stephen Gostkowski - Gostkowski kicked a 62 yard field goal last week that looked like it would have been good from 70 yards.  Whoa.

2) Tom Brady - Brady started 12 for 12 against Oakland and it was all over early.  Not a ton of suspense last week.  If they go up by four scores again at any point, please take him out and put him in bubble wrap.

3) Brandin Cooks - I still like the Brandin Cooks trade.  Just the right number of Cooks.

My prediction: Pats 30, Dolphins 17
