Patriots Could Win Multiple ESPY’s



New England Patriots Could Win Multiple ESPY’s

The day after the MLB All-Star break is one of the slowest days in all of sports. Outside of a couple of soccer games, nothing is going on in sports. It is for that reason that ESPN hosts its annual award show, the ESPY’s.

For the Patriots and their fans, tonight’s award ceremony could be a sweet way to relive the glory of their Super Bowl 51 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

New England is up for a number of awards and in theory, could walk away with the most awards handed out.

Best Championship Performance: Tom Brady Super Bowl 51

Brady’s performance when down 28-3 in the Super Bowl should give him the edge in winning this trophy. But the longtime Patriots QB will have his fair share of competition.

Others in contention for the award include Kevin Durant (Warriors, NBA Finals), Deshaun Watson (Clemson, CFB), and Shay Knighten (Oklahoma, Women’s College World Series).

Best Game: Super Bowl 51

The Super Bowl will be going to the World Series Game 7 (Chicago Cubs vs. Cleveland Indians) and Australian Open Final (Roger Federer vs. Rafael Nadal)

Best Record Making Performance: Bill Belichick (Most Super Bowl Wins As Head Coach)

Coach Belichick will be in the running with Michael Phelps (most Olympic gold medals), Diana Taurasi (WNBA scoring record), and Russell Westbrook (most triple doubles in a season)

Best NFL Player: Tom Brady

Brady is up for two individual awards during the ESPY’s. This one can be a tad misleading though.

Brady is in the running with Ezekiel Elliott, Khalil Mack, Aaron Rodgers, and Matt Ryan. Brady might not win just because he missed four games to start te season.

Best Play: Julian Edelman‘s Catch

The style for this award is bracket style.

Best Team: New England Patriots

New England is going against a ton of talented teams in this field.  They are going against the Chicago Cubs, Clemon Tigers football, Golden State Warriors, Pittsburgh Penguins, South Carolina Gamecocks women’s basketball, and the United States women’s gymnastics

The ESPY’s are on ESPN tonight at 8 p.m.

Patriots Talk: Patriots Shut Out Raiders In Mexico City



What a day for the Patriots to secure a win in the most Patriot way possible. The game was effectively over before the 2nd quarter ended. The team was dominant throughout the entire duration of the game and it showed. In many ways, there were a number of factors within this game that caused the Raiders to ultimately fold early on in the game

The Altitude Difference

The Patriots had the smart idea to stay in Denver and travel to Colorado Springs to adjust their bodies to the pressures of high altitude. The Raiders took the same approach when they traveled to Mexico City to play against the Houston Texans in Week 11 of the 2016 season. Although, the method worked last year, you can’t deny that there was a lot of outside interference in that game.

This time around, it was very clearly from just the fact that CB Stephon Gilmore and WR Danny Amendola leaving the game due to dehydration showed how taxing the high altitude was on them. The Raiders were arguably worse with their team as they allowed 4 turnovers on the offense yesterdays. The sheer pressure the game put on most of the players was quite significant in this game for both team. But the Patriots ultimately minimzed the effect that it had on them.

Patriots Football Talk: Patriots Dominance Continues In Mexico




It was a sunny Sunday at the Estadio Azteca, Mexico’s Premier Stadium, in Mexico City.  The New England Patriots were facing off against the Oakland Raiders in what was called a Road Game.  It was a made for TV experience to draw in a more viewers and fans.  It was the NFL’s way to reach a larger market, that being fans in Mexico City.

The Game showed off the best in the NFL.  And you know what?  The best Team in the NFL showed what it means to be the best.  Of course I’m talking about the Patriots dominating yet another Team.  They continue to out preform their opponents on the field.  It’s something that this year’s Team has grown in to.  From being just a contender to being an all-out reigning champ; this Team has figured out how to be great.  Today’s game was proof of that!  I’d say they played perfect, but they didn’t get the shut out.  Hey you can’t have everything!

NFL Talk: Week 11 Picks




We are finally getting down to the last stretch of the season where teams will finally start to line up where they will make the playoffs and those who will simply tank for the higher pick in the 2018 NFL draft. At this point, most people have teams figured out and know how games should go from here on out. As of now, I got 11-3 correct last week, which puts me at 95-51 for the season.

Tennessee Titans @ Pittsburgh Steelers: Winner – Steelers

At this point in the season, I think the Titans will likely make the wildcard as Jacksonville will run away with the division. The Steelers are pretty much a lock for the playoffs. Their division has the Browns with the worst record in the NFL, and the Bengals and Ravens have fallen off. Even though the game was already played yesterday here was my thoughts before the game:

They are playing the Titans at home and the Steelers defense has been a hack of a surprise for this season. It’s mainly because of how much money was invested into their offense yet their defense has improved substantially from last year. The 2nd best passing defense in the NFL (allowing only 181.8 passing yards per game) and 11th against the run (allowing 102.7 rushing yards per game).

The Titans will have some serious difficulties holding the Steelers down while they are playing at home. Despite the Titans not having a bad team by any stretch (they have the 6th best rushing defense in the NFL), this is the Steelers game to lose and thankfully after what we have seen, that isn’t alot. Steelers won by 40-17 and my prediction was they would score 27-20. (Titans couldn’t even get me that)

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Cleveland Browns: Winner – Jaguars

If the Jags somehow throw this game away I will be so done with predicting their games this season. The Browns are a team that needs a massive overhaul and I don’t see it being enough for them to win this game. The Jaguars will win this game 24-21 with Blake Bortles somehow almost throwing the game away. Almost.
