Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer Close Covered Patriots since 1997 Joined ESPN in 2009 Follow on Twitter Tom Brady connects with Rob Gronkowski in the end zone twice, but it's an overturned Austin Seferian-Jenkins touchdown, that gets ruled a fumble, that helps fortify a 24-17 New England victory. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Six games into the New England Patriots’ season, a big part of their DNA is both troubling and admirable. This is a team that creates its own adversity with sloppy play, coverage busts and untimely turnovers. But then it shows toughness to fight through the adversity, which is a critical characteristic for championship teams. Such a Jekyll-and-Hyde approach might be OK against teams
The Dolphins’ defense carried Miami to a huge comeback win against the Falcons on Sunday, and Kiko Alonso literally carried an Atlanta player. As the Falcons tried to rally on their final possession in the fourth quarter, a Matt Ryan pass to Taylor Gabriel was nearly intercepted. Alonso hit Gabriel almost immediately and grabbed hold of the 5-8, 165-point receiver. He just wasn’t in any rush to let go. Alonso proceeded to carry Gabriel on his shoulders for over 10 yards, just because. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before. And, no, that wasn’t a penalty. Ryan would throw an interception later in the drive to seal the Dolphins win.
In his sixth game with the San Francisco 49ers, Brian Hoyer got the hook. The veteran quarterback was benched in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins and replaced by rookie C.J. Beathard, a third-round pick out of Iowa. Hoyer completed four of 11 passes for 34 yards before exiting the game. Entering the Week, Hoyer ranked tied for 28th among starting quarterbacks with a 75.8 passer rating. Hoyer signed a two-year, $12 million contract in March and took over as starter for first-year coach Kyle Shanahan. PHOTOS: Best of NFL Week 6
Let’s enjoy another NFL Sunday, shall we? Unfortunately, a major injury dominated the news again. Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone and could be out the rest of the season. Where do the Packers go from here? The Falcons blew a 17-point lead at home and lost to the Dolphins. Deshaun Watson led the Texans to another big offensive performance against the Browns, who fell to 0-6. Another rookie quarterback, Mitchell Trubisky, got his first win for the Bears — and might have helped saved John Fox’s job. In the afternoon, the NFL’s last remaining unbeaten team finally lost. The Steelers beat the Chiefs, in part because they finally let Le'Veon Bell run wild. Adrian Peterson made his debut for the
If the Atlanta Falcons have perfected one thing over the past eight months, it's blowing a big lead to AFC East teams. The Falcons have two losses this season and both of those losses came after they blew a halftime lead to a team from the New England Patriots ' division. The Falcons might want to just start playing from behind on purpose from now on, just so they can avoid all the jokes that come with blowing a big lead. Of course, the biggest lead the Falcons have blown recently came in Super Bowl LI when they lost to the Patriots 34-28 in a game where they once held a 28-3 lead in the third quarter. The Falcons will finally get a chance to avenge that loss this week in a game where oddsmakers
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Through six games of 2017, the Patriots (4-2) clearly aren't the same team that took home New England's fifth Lombardi Trophy with the epic comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons in February. After breaking down film of Sunday's 24-17 win over the AFC East rival New York Jets, ever-astute Patriots head coach Bill Belichick emphasized that believing the team could pick up where it left off last season isn't realistic. "It's incomprehensible to me how anybody could think that a team that's practiced for six months and played 19 regular-season and post-season games and had triple-digit practices, five months later, after not playing a game, after having a fraction of that type
The Latest on the NFL's sixth Sunday of the regular season (all times Eastern): 2:28 p.m. Rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard has replaced Brian Hoyer for the San Francisco 49ers in the second quarter against the Washington Redskins. Beathard's grandfather, Bobby, was a Super Bowl-winning general manager for the Redskins decades ago. Beathard, a third-round draft pick out of Iowa, came in with the Niners trailing 14-0. He threw his first NFL pass on his second play, a 13-yard gain to Garrett Celek. Hoyer was 4 for 11 for 34 yards and the 49ers managed to gain a total of only 39 yards and two first downs in their first four possessions. — Howard Fendrich reporting from Landover, Maryland 2:26 p.m.
