SPRINGFIELD, MA – The New England Patriots went back to their winning ways on Saturday night with a 41-20 over the NFC Championship Game. Despite the high-scoring game and the two tiebreakers that went to sudden death, there were several undisputed catalysts to the Patriots victory. This slideshow will detail the differences that the Patriots made after the trade deadline that seemed to put the Patriots in a better position than before.
Dorchester, MA – Massachusetts State Representative Bill Owens, a Democrat, has filed a bill that would prohibit statewide lotteries from offering only scratch-off tickets to New England residents.
Owens’ bill would take effect on October 1st. Lotteries offer both instant tickets that win a smaller prize, and those that pay out larger jackpots. Because of their ease of play, scratch-off tickets are traditionally the most popular types of tickets in Massachusetts.
Owens notes that New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island and Connecticut already have statewide lottery laws in place that prevent payouts on scratch-offs.
The Patriots don’t have to worry about a difference in payouts between non-winning tickets and winners in a game like football. However, New England residents can’t buy tickets in the other states for this reason and because of the ease of play.
On Thursday, the Patriots released their draft selections and some of their free agents.
The Patriots drafted linebacker and fellow New Englander Tedy Bruschi with the 15th overall pick in the first round. Bruschi was a second-team All-American last year and is a three-time Pro Bowler. The Tom Brady protégé was also a perfect 12-for-12 on PATs and 15-for-16 on field goal tries. Bruschi is a physical presence who will be a solid replacement for Gary Brackett, who was released in the offseason.
Bruschi’s selection ends the Patriots’ eight-year wait for a first round linebacker. The Patriots have drafted just two linebackers in the first round since Bill Belichick became the head coach of the Patriots.
The Patriots drafted running back Laurence Maroney with the 63rd overall pick in the fourth round. Maroney ran for 1,151 yards last year at Nebraska. He was another bright spot in an otherwise unsuccessful offense, despite his short-yardage ways.
The Patriot’s also signed running back Danny Woodhead
