  3. When will Gronk's role expand?

    Tom Carpenter

  4. Will Amendola's role increase?

    Tom Carpenter

  5. Concern about Vereen's workload?

    Tom Carpenter

    Tom Carpenter

    It was easy to be skeptical about what the Oakland Raiders could do this season, but after they lost to two other seemingly mediocre teams -- New York Jets, Houston Texans -- to put begin them in an 0-2 hole, it's fair to wonder about the job securit...

  8. Extra motivation for Cordarrelle vs Pats?

    Tom Carpenter

    We all know that New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick chooses his limited public words more carefully than a PR professional, so he all but never gives his opponents bulletin-board material. However, Cordarrelle Patterson, whose Minnesota Vik...

  9. Will Brady be ready Sunday?

    Tom Carpenter

    Since Tom Brady basically doesn't miss games or practices, the fact that he skipped Thursday's session with a calf injury raised plenty of eyebrows. Will he be ready to roll Sunday against the Miami Dolphins? He sounded positive when speaking with...

  10. Will Pats shut down TE Clay again?

    Tom Carpenter

  13. What can we expect from Ridley, Vereen?

    Tom Carpenter

    Earlier this week, I took a look at the New England Patriots backfield, noting that ESPN Pats reporter Mike Reiss wasn't convinced that veteran RB Stevan Ridley would make the final cut. However, after Ridley joined Shane Vereen in sitting out the...

  16. Latest on Maclin's health, fantasy value

    Tom Carpenter
