  Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo may not fetch first-rounder?    Tue Jan 24, 12:51 PM

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to a hot name on the trade market this offseason, but the MMQB's Andrew Brandt believes it is 'delusional' to think another team will hand over a first-round pick for the backup signal-caller.

  Patriots | Dion Lewis a non-factor    Sun Jan 22, 10:22 PM

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis rushed six times for 11 yards and caught two passes for eight yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 22.

Footballguys view: Lewis scored three touchdowns in the Divisional Round, but he barely touched the ball against the Steelers. He didn't need to...the Steelers decided to leave WR Chris Hogan wide open for most of the contest.

  Patriots | Chris Hogan throttles Steelers    Sun Jan 22, 10:05 PM

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan caught nine passes for a game-high 180 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game.

Footballguys view: The Steelers had a horrific defensive plan for Hogan. They pretty much left him wide open for most of the game. Hogan worked his way downfield, and QB Tom Brady found him early and often.

Footballguys view: Brady was on fire against the Steelers. He did a good job of avoiding the rush, keeping his eyes downfield and firing it aggressively against the Steelers. Brady played like a man possessed.

  Patriots | Julian Edelman tops 100 yards    Sun Jan 22, 09:47 PM

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman snared eight passes for 118 yards and a touchdown catch Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game.

Footballguys view: When the Steelers finally adjusted to WR Chris Hogan, then Julian Edelman came to life. He'll be a key piece for the Patriots passing game in Super Bowl 51.

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount rushed 16 times for 47 yards and one touchdown Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game. He added one catch for eight yards.

Footballguys view: Blount didn't do much early, but he just kept leaning on the defense. He broke through in the third quarter, and the game broke open for the Patriots.

  Patriots | Malcolm Mitchell active    Sun Jan 22, 05:16 PM

New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is active for the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Mitchell gives QB Tom Brady another target to throw to. The chemistry with Brady and Michael Floyd is a work in progress. That problem is not there with the rookie and the veteran QB.

  Patriots | Pats open to moving Jimmy Garoppolo    Sun Jan 22, 01:10 PM

The New England Patriots will be willing to listen to trade offers for QB Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason and will be looking for at least a first-round pick in return.

Footballguys view: Anyone can be traded so long as the price is right. Garoppolo was a second-round pick for the team in 2014 out of Eastern Illinois. He's known as an accurate QB on short-to-intermediate routes. Garoppolo needs better pocket presence if he's going to live up to his potential as a pro. The Patriots will also have to make sure they are comfortable with QB Jacoby Brissett as their No. 2 quarterback before moving Garoppolo.

  Patriots | Martellus Bennett may need surgery    Sun Jan 22, 12:21 PM

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (ankle) has been playing with a cracked bone in his ankle as well as bone chips in the ankle and likely will need to undergo surgery this offseason.

Footballguys view: Bennett has not missed a game this year, but he's clearly not himself as he tries to play banged up. Offseason surgery could cool the market for his services in 2017. Bennett is set to be a free agent this year, and he can be a difference maker for a team in need of tight end help.

  Patriots | Tom Brady has had Pittsburgh's number    Sat Jan 21, 06:39 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady has averaged 314.8 passing yards and thrown for 19 touchdowns versus no interceptions in six games against the Pittsburgh Steelers since Mike Tomlin became their head coach in 2007. Brady's 127.5 passer rating versus Tomlin's teams is the highest against any coach (minimum three games).

  Patriots | Chip Kelly meets with Bill Belichick    Sat Jan 21, 10:16 AM

Former San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly met with New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick earlier this week, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Kelly and Belichick are friends, so it makes sense that the two would meet now that Kelly is free from being the 49ers head coach. However, there are no current openings on the Patriots' coaching staff and it is uncertain if a possible role in the front office was discussed.

New England Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee) is 'trending in the right direction' regarding his status for the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 22, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Mitchell may be in for a few high-value targets against the Steelers. He may not be a big part of the gameplan, but we guarantee Patriots OC Josh McDaniels will find ways to get the rookie WR into mismatches.

New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan (thigh) said he feels good after exiting early with a thigh injury against the Houston Texans last weekend. '[I] just had a little minor setback in the game,' Hogan said. 'I'm working back every single day and feeling better every day.'

Footballguys view: The Patriots and Steelers play this week in the AFC Championship Game, and that's a contest that could turn into a shootout between two high-powered offenses. Having Hogan ready to play will help the Patriots in that department, and they'll monitor him close this week to get prepared.

Footballguys view: McDaniels will have plenty of options next year when the coaching carousel is spinning. With him stepping out of consideration, Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan is likely to be the 49ers new head coach.
