New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

Computer Program Has the Patriots Playoff Run Coming to a Quick End

The Patriots are heading easily towards the #1 seed in the AFC even after they fell to the Ravens two weeks ago, and today NFL.com came out with an article about how technology has the Pats getting knocked out early in the playoffs.

TOMORROW-BOT has put out the teams for the playoffs, with the Pats going 13-3, but losing in the divisional round to of all teams – the Raiders.

Here’s what the program and site has to say:

Oakland Raiders 16, New England Patriots 13 (OT): Amid a blustery blizzard in Foxborough, the upstart Raiders flip the switch on hearts everywhere as they improbably unplug Tom Brady and the Patriots in a Mother Nature-dominated tilt capped by TB12’s killer strip-sack with less than a minute to go in overtime. Clelin Ferrell’s titanic blast of Brady looks and feels like a carbon copy of the hotly contested Charles Woodson takedown that morphed into Tuck Rule legend nearly 18 years ago to the day. A frostbitten, tearstained Gruden is carried off the field by his players, while Brady — asked if he’ll be back in 2020 — scowls at reporters and utters: “I haven’t decided a thing.”

Patriots Releasing Wide Out Josh Gordon

The Josh Gordon era in New England is over.

The wide receiver is being released by the undefeated Patriots according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, this after being taken off injured reserve.

The receiver will head to waivers where he could be claimed by a new team as early as Friday.

Gordon has been on the shelf with a knee injury. He was pulled from the Pats week six Thursday night affair against the Giants, and was put on IR last Wednesday.

This season Gordon has pulled in 20 passes for 287 yards and a touchdown in six games.

Patriots Sign Kicker Nick Folk; Release Kicker Mike Nugent

The Patriots kicking issues continued on Sunday against the Browns with kicker Mike Nugent, and today the team took a step to shore up the position.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team is signing kicker Nick Folk, the team has made room for him by releasing Nugent.

Folk has been around for 11 seasons, hitting 80.3 percent of his field goals.

Most of his NFL career has been spent in the Big Apple with the Jets, where he connected on 82.2 percent of his field-goal tries.

Patriots Showing Interest in Bengals TE Tyler Eifert

While the Patriots are 8-0 and steam rolling through the AFC this season, the team still is missing production from the tight end position, as this season they have had just 14 receptions from their tight ends, scoring just once.

That could change today with the trade deadline in the NFL upon us, as the team is showing interest in Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert.

Jeff Howe of The Athletic tweeted out today that the Pats are indeed one the teams looking at Eifert:

The Patriots are among the teams that have shown the most interest in Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert, per source. Not sure if the Bengals will relax the price enough to trade him.

This season Eifert has 23 receptions for 192 yards and one touchdown for the 0-8 Bengals, who sound like they could move just about any player as they look towards the future.

Josh Gordon Lands on the IR with a Knee Injury; Patriots Trade for Veteran Sanu

As crazy as it sounds for the 7-0 Pariots, the team still has a number of huge obstacles standing in its way as they get ready for a week eight game at home against the Cleveland Browns.

You can play the odds on the Pats, who right now are sitting at 10.5 point favorites via most sportsbooks like borgata, who also have a great way to have even more fun with their borgata casino online.

The Patriots were dealt another big injury blow on Wednesday that will have a direct effect on their offense, as play making wide receiver Josh Gordon is done for the season with a knee injury.

The team placed Gordon on injured reserve with what they said was a left knee injury.

Gordon had been playing through the injury when he was hit and had to leave the October 10th game against the Giants at home.

At the time, Gordon injured the knee while attempting to make a tackle after a Patriots fumble. He did not take the field on Monday night when the Patriots beat up the AFC East rival New York Jets 33-0 at MetLife Stadium.

Through six games, Gordon had been starting alongside Julian Edelman and totaled 20 catches for 287 yards and one touchdown.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pounder has played in 58 regular-season games with 55 starts and totaled 240 receptions for 4,113 yards and 20 touchdowns.

It did not take the Pariots long to start to look for a replacement for Gordon, as the team made a rare NFL trade with the Atlanta Falcons for veteran receiver Mohamed Sanu.

“He’s a very experienced receiver. He’s had a lot of production,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said of Sanu. “We’re excited to have him, and we’ll see how it goes.”

It’s a big question on if the Pats will have the ability to play Sanu on Sunday when the Pats host the Browns.

Belichick said, the team is focused on getting Sanu in their game plans rather than the entire system, starting with the Pats’ plan for Sunday.

“It’s really what we’re doing this week, what the Browns do, what their coverages are, what our game plan is, what our assignments are, what adjustments do we have to make, and so forth,” Belichick said.

“You can go back and talk about things that happened earlier in the year. There’s a time for that and we certainly have a lot to catch up on.

“But most important thing for a player coming onto the team is the immediate game, the upcoming game. So we’ll focus most of our attention there.”

Robert Kraft Not Giving Up Hope of a Return for Former Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski

?

An hour before Rob Gronkowski was set to make his analyst debut on FOX Sports, Patriots owner Robert Kraft said the tight end might still return to the NFL, Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal reports.

Speaking with the NFL Network, Kraft said there’s still hope that Gronk might come out of his retirement due to the fact that he never filed his retirement paperwork.

We all love Gronk and I think the bottom line is, he hasn’t put his retirement papers in,” Kraft. “We can pray and hope. … I think that’s a good academic argument that there is hope with Gronk.”

That was an interesting tidbit from Kraft. On March 26, the Patriots placed Gronk on the NFL’s “reserve/retired” list after the tight end announced his retirement. It seems, however, that Gronkowski left the door open for a return.
