Patriots stories on ESPNBoston


In addition to the blog entries in this space, two additional Patriots stories have been posted on

1. Patriots outclass Texans as Brady stands tall. Columnist Jackie MacMullan writes that this was no fluke -- the Patriots are in a higher class than the Texans. It helps when the quarterback is Tom Brady and his No. 1 receiver is the remarkable Wes Welker.

2. Life without Gronkowski, Part II. Mike Reiss writes on how the Patriots' victory came at a cost, as the Patriots will be without tight end Rob Gronkowski for the rest of the playoffs. It's a blow, but one the Patriots have proven they can overcome. There is a lot that we learned about the team's approach from the regular season.
