Newly acquired wide receiver Josh Gordon was inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions, but he still did what he could to help the integration process. Gordon stood on the sidelines the entire game and was next to wide receivers coach Chad O'Shea much of the night. He was also part of the wide...

It's been a tough few weeks for the Patriots offense. For the first time since the end of 2015, the Patriots have scored 20 points or less in back-to-back games. Against the Lions Sunday night, the Patriots continued their trend of getting off to slow starts with three consecutive three-and-outs...

It will be a strange sight in Detroit Sunday night with Matt Patricia coaching on the sideline opposite Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniels. Patricia had been with the Patriots since 2004 before taking the Lions' head-coaching job this offseason. The Lions are 0-2, but that doesn't mean anything to...

Sunday wasn't the best day for the Patriots offense and early on in the game CBS cameras caught Josh McDaniels voicing his frustrations to the entire unit on the sidelines.

The Patriots have withstood lots of excruciating early-season losses before. Prior to Sunday’s debacle in Jacksonville, each one turned out to just be a hiccup, rather than harbinger of doom. That’s why it’s tempting to dismiss New England’s 31-20 loss to the Jaguars in 97-degree heat as a fluke...

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Patriots offense did not get off to a good start Sunday against the Jaguars, and Josh McDaniels was not pleased. After the Patriots struggled on their first three drives -- missed field goal, punt, punt -- the offensive coordinator ripped the offense on the sidelines. The...

So much to write and so little space ... After four-plus decades on the planet, I’ve gotten used to stupid takes particularly when it comes to perceived "hot takes" on sports, politics or celebrity. Typically it doesn’t bother me too much. I just laugh it off or grumble aloud to myself like Bill...

Here's what Bill Belichick's disciples never seem to get right when they attempt to grow beyond the shadow of his coaching tree: the Patriots Way only works for the Patriots. From Charlie Weiss to Eric Mangini to Josh McDaniels and perhaps now Matt Patricia, the same insults followed each of...

Why exactly did Josh McDaniels turn down the Colts' head-coaching job at the last minute to stay in New England as offensive coordinator? A big new contract, apparently. According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport , McDaniels received a five-year contract extension, which will have him be paid like a...

FOXBORO — The Patriots offense will be undermanned Sunday when it takes on the Texans in Week 1 without Julian Edelman and a depleted receiving corps, which only had three on the initial roster. Others have been added since, but it isn’t the full complement of weapons Tom Brady is used to having,...
