Where the Hell is Danny Amendola?

The stat sheet may say otherwise, but Patriots quarterback Tom Brady did indeed target his diminutive wide receiver more than once on Sunday afternoon in Minnesota. What resulted from the third-down play in the second quarter, with New England leading, 10-7, was a nifty deep pass down the sideline, complete for 26 yards and a first down on what would be the Patriots' only bona fide offensive drive of the game.

Tom Brady: I Have To Do A Better Job Of Spreading The Ball Around

The New England Patriots may have won Sunday's game by 23 points, but Tom Brady certainly wasn't happy about the performance of the offense. The ground game was effective, but Brady threw for just 149 yards, completing 80 percent of his passes to just three players - wide receiver Julian Edelman , tight end Rob Gronkowski and fullback James Develin .

Patriots Notebook: Oakland's desperation rings familiar

Back on Sept. 21, 2008, rookie head coach Tony Sparano's Miami Dolphins - 0-2 and winners of just one of their previous 21 games - trudged into Gillette Stadium for what appeared to be a mismatch with a Patriots team that had won an NFL-record 21 consecutive regular-season games.

Volin: Is Tom Brady Being Too Stubborn?

Tom Brady has had quite a while to develop some chemistry with Danny Amendola and Aaron Dobson, and he's likewise had a full offseason and preseason to work with Brandon LaFell, yet if you watched Sunday's Patriots game against the Vikings, you'd never know it. Dobson had one catch on two targets, while Amendola and LaFell had a combined zero targets .

Through two weeks, NFL's worst big-play offense belongs to New England Patriots

Kudos if you have. You're either a true football junkie, or you're in a 16-team fantasy league and you handcuffed Jordan Reed.

BOSTON The NFL re-emphasized certain penalties prior to the start of the season, and after two weeks it appears that they are not messing around. Flags are flying all across the league, and that was very evident in Minnesota Sunday afternoon.

Socci On Toucher & Rich: Brady's Dissatisfaction With Offense Valid

Patriots radio play-by-play man Bob Socci came on 98.5 The Sports Hub's Toucher & Rich Monday morning following a 30-7 Patriots win over Minnesota. It's hard to sit here and pick apart a game in which New England won handily by 23 points, but when the quarterback himself is critical of the way his offense played you have to stop and take notice.

Kenbrell Thompkins Healthy Inactive; What is His Future?

Wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins was benched for the return of Aaron Dobson , a decision only 10% of us expected . When Danny Amendola and Brandon LaFell are far less productive on offense than Thompkins, yet manage to rank over him, we have to ask ourselves why did Thompkins sit? It's clear that no matter how much quarterback Tom Brady loves you- and Brady loves himself some KT- coach Bill Belichick will do what he deems is best for the team.

Best & Worst of Patriots-Vikings game

Best boots: Stephen Gostkowski made all three field goal attempts, including kicks from 48 and 47, and his four touchbacks effectively neutralized Vikings dangerous kick returner Cordarrelle Patterson. Best boots, part 2 : Punter Ryan Allen punted five times and four of them ended up inside the 20-yard line.

Patriots Fantasy Football: Week 2 Start/Sit Advice

Stevan Ridley : I went with Ridley as a "start" option last week. While he was the Patriots' primary early down back, the team failed to establish the run and he became essentially irrelevant in the second half.

Five things to watch today

The Patriots have to shore up a handful of weaknesses that plagued them during their season-opening loss to the Dolphins, and the corrections have to happen quickly against a Vikings team that poses a similar set of challenges. Bill Belichick has been perennially lauded for his ability to make adjustments in the face of adversity.

New England Patriots Need Offense To Step Up In Week 2

To quote Patches O'Houlihan from "Dodgeball," the New England Patriots ' offense was "about as useful as a poopy-flavored lollipop" in their 33-20 Week 1 loss to the Miami Dolphins , particularly in the second half. The defense wasn't anything to write home about either, but the pieces are there; they just need to start to gel more and improve at stopping the run.

Who Should the Patriots Bench for Aaron Dobson?

As the Patriots bring back their young stud receiver from injury, it begs the question: who sits if Dobson returns? The Patriots clearly missed receiver Aaron Dobson in the opener against the Dolphins . At 6'3, Dobson offers size that no one else on the roster can provide, and he does it with wheels that can generate fantastic separation.

Patriots need more Rob Gronkowski

Rob Gronkowski's performance against the Dolphins suggests he's still a superhero cape shy of unveiling an all-out Gronk whooping on opponents. But if the Patriots can tear off a bit of the protective wrap Sunday against the Vikings, the offense can improve in a variety of ways.

Patriots Offensive Line In Trouble? Matt Light, Dan Koppen On Toucher & Rich

After allowing 40 sacks in 2013 , Patriots fans were hoping 2014 would be a better year for the offensive line unit in protecting the 37-year-old. Well, after hitting the dirt four times via the sack Sunday in Miami, and countless quarterback pressures and hits, it doesn't look like - on the onset, anyway - that 2014 will be any better than the year prior.
