Five Things to Watch This Week - Week 16

The Patriots play their fifteenth game of the year at M&T Bank Stadium against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, December 22 at 4:25 PM.*

*ADJUSTED TIME.  PLAN YOUR DRINKING AND EATING ACTIVITIES ACCORDINGLY.

Don't anybody panic or anything... But there's still a very slight chance we miss the playoffs.

This is in sharp contrast to the "inside track at the number one seed" we had a week or so ago.

Gasp!

DEEP BREATHS.



We lost to THIS TEAM last week.

Here are five guys on defense who will need to step up this week if the Patriots are going to be beat the Ravens:

1) Chandler Jones - I have nothing but positive things to say about Chandler Jones this season.

2) Dont'a Hightower - I don't really have any positive things to say about Hightower this season.

3) Brandon Spikes - Didn't play last week against Miami, but Spikes has played reasonably well filling in for Mayo in the middle…

Here are five guys who will need to step up this week if the Patriots are going to be beat the Dolphins:

1) Shane Vereen - Another solid week last week.  Believe it or not, he's the team's third leading receiver for the year.  There might still be time to put a Vereen jersey on your Christmas wishlist.

2) Stephen Gostkowski - HOLY CRAP!  ONSIDE KICK!  (Last time the Pats recovered an onside kick was... 1994.)

3) LeGarrette Blount - Considering we got him for almost nothing, he's been quietly putting together a pre…

Five Things to Watch This Week - Week 14

The Patriots play their thirteenth game of the year at Gillette Stadium against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, December 8th at 1:00 PM.


We gave up HOW MANY points to the Texans last week?

This is pretty much what I looked like getting up from the table on Thanksgiving.
These late comebacks are getting to be rough on my stress levels. I should just start watching these games in the second half.

Maybe this week they get a big lead early and put the Browns away for good. The Browns are starting (spins Quarterback Wheel of Doom) Jason Campbell at QB this week. Sure. Am I afraid of Jason Campbell? Not really. But I'll freely admit... Josh Gordon scares me more than a little.

Here the All Stars of the Patriots offense so far this season (other than TB12): 1) Rob Gronkowski - Even with missing the first 7 weeks, he's putting up great numbers (560 yards and 4 TDs in just 6 games). They're a much better team w…
