  5. What's happened to Brady's deep ball?

    Tom Carpenter

    Since Tom Brady is 37 years old, it really shouldn't be a surprise that most of his key stats have been on the decline since 2011. Nonetheless, he's one of the NFL's all-time greats, so it's also hard to believe that Brady's lack of success is all on...

    Tom Carpenter

    Although the New England Patriots are 2-1, Tom Brady hasn't lived up to his Hall of Famer expectations thus far. He is averaging only 210 yards per game, has thrown just three touchdown passes and sports a career-low 58.8 completion percentage. No...

  10. When will Gronk's role expand?

    Tom Carpenter

  11. Will Amendola's role increase?

    Tom Carpenter

    The big knock on Danny Amendola is that he can't stay out of the infirmary. However, he has avoided injury early this season yet has only three catches on six targets for 16 yards after two games. Why hasn't he carved out a bigger role in the New ...

  12. Concern about Vereen's workload?

    Tom Carpenter

  13. How hot is Dennis Allen's seat?

    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...

  15. Extra motivation for Cordarrelle vs Pats?

    Tom Carpenter

  16. Will Brady be ready Sunday?

    Tom Carpenter
