Patriots TE Ben Watson reveals feelings about Panthers DB Eric Reid on Twitter

Saturday, August 24th, 2019

As Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid awaits his expected punishment from the NFL for his dangerous late hit to the head of the Patriots' Ben Watson that has the 38-year-old tight end in concussion protocol, Reid has insisted the hit had nothing to do with the recent Twitter beef between the two. Watson hasn't talked publicly since the hit, but he tweeted about it Saturday. Our Tom E. Curran tweeted his disdain for the hit just after it happened.

Column: The NFL preseason shows all its ills in 1 night

Friday, August 23rd, 2019

The NFL preseason needs to go. If there was any way to cancel the final week of friendlies, that would be just fine with us. Since such an option isn't really feasible, let's make it the swan song for what has become the height of the league's arrogance: a monthlong slog of meaningless exhibitions that serve no discernible purpose other than ill-gotten gain for billionaire owners.

Ryan Izzo makes case to be Gronk’s replacement as starting Patriots tight end

Friday, August 23rd, 2019

FOXBORO - Tom Brady's first-down throw early in the second quarter was a rope. "I had a little heat," Brady said after. Ryan Izzo started at tight end Thursday night against the Panthers, in what's widely considered the closest thing to a regular-season "dress rehearsal." That the second-year player out of Florida State came through with a difficult catch when given the opportunity - on what might've been Brady's best throw of the night - seemed to go a long way with his quarterback.

Patriots hit hard by injuries during preseason win vs. Panthers

Thursday, August 22nd, 2019

The New England Patriots were unable to escape Thursday night's preseason game against the Carolina Panthers without several players suffering injuries or getting banged up. Patriots linebacker Kyle Van Noy was slow to get up in the first quarter after sacking Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. Van Noy went into the blue medical tent but came back before the first quarter ended.

Brady passes, scrambles Patriots past Panthers 10-3

Thursday, August 22nd, 2019

Tom Brady did just enough in his first preseason action of his 20th NFL season to keep other teams guessing as they prepare to face the 42-year-old, six-time Super Bowl champion. Brady completed 8 of 12 passes for 75 yards in three offensive possessions, leaving after driving the defending champions to the only touchdown in a 10-3 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night. The 15-play, 85-yard drive was kept alive when the notoriously slow-footed Brady scrambled for three yards on third-and-3 from the Panthers 41 on the first snap of the second quarter.

Panthers safety Eric Reid suggests Colin Kaepernick if Cam Newton is badly injured

Thursday, August 22nd, 2019

If the Carolina Panthers did lose franchise quarterback Cam Newton for a while and want to get in touch with Colin Kaepernick, their safety probably has Kaepernick's number. Newton hurt his foot in Thursday night's preseason game and left in a walking boot. Eric Reid, who kneeled during the national anthem with Kaepernick while they were teammates on the San Francisco 49ers, had a suggestion for the Panthers if Newton has to miss time — and Reid emphasized “if,” considering details on Newton's injury are scarce — and it was bringing his friend back to the NFL.

Patriots vs. Panthers: Tom Brady stats, highlights from preseason debut

Thursday, August 22nd, 2019

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady got his first game action of the preseason Thursday night at Gillette Stadium, and the results were pretty mixed against the Carolina Panthers defense. It was a sloppy start for the Patriots offense as a whole with three penalties during the first two drives. Rookie wide receiver Jakobi Meyers had a particularly bad opening two series with a drop, a penalty and a weird deep route where he stopped running.
