Pats WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee) out against Texans
ABC News - about 1 month
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots rookie wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell will not play in Saturday night's divisional-round playoff game against the Houston Texans because of a knee injury, sources tell ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Mitchell's absence for the second straight game should once again thrust Michael Floyd into an expanded role. The Patriots had claimed Floyd on waivers from the Arizona Cardinals on Dec. 15. Julian Edelman, who led the Patriots with 98 receptions during the regular season and is two catches shy of setting the franchise record for playoff receptions, will top a wide receiver depth chart that will include Chris Hogan, Floyd and Danny Amendola on Saturday night. Mitchell, a fourth-round draft choice out of Georgia, totaled 32 catches for 401 yards and four touchdowns in 15 regular-season games (6 starts). He had come on strong, averaging 45.7 percent of the offensive...

Tom Brady torches Bills as Pats avenge NFL shutout defeat
Yahoo News - 4 months
Another monster game from Tom Brady saw the New England Patriots pound the Bills 41-25 in Buffalo, avenging an embarrassing shutout defeat four weeks ago. The Bills hadn't swept AFC East division rivals New England in two regular-season games since 1999, and with Brady back in the saddle -- after missing their first clash this season serving his Deflategate suspension -- their chances of doing so were dim. Brady threw scoring passes to Danny Amendola, Chris Hogan, Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski, who set a New England record with his 69th career TD reception.

The Woodlands’ Danny Amendola contributing in several ways for Patriots
Houston Chronicle - about 1 year
New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola has a long history of eluding defensive backs during seven NFL seasons. This year, the former Texas Tech standout and native of The Woodlands has become even more pivotal for an injury-depleted Patriots offense playing without tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Julian Edelman. Heading into Sunday night’s game against the Texans, Amendola figures to play a central role again. He caught seven passes for 62 yards and a touchdown during a loss last Sunday to the Philadelphia Eagles. For the season, Amendola has contributed 56 catches for 582 yards and three touchdowns and is on pace to finish the season with 76 catches and 794 yards. Amendola caught 10 passes for 79 yards against the New York Giants and nine passes for 117 yards against the Buffalo Bills. Amendola, who was sidelined for an overtime loss to the Denver Broncos after getting injured against the Bills, has also averaged 12.6 yards per punt return and 21.5 yards p ...

Not going Beast Mode a burden Seahawks must bear
Houston Chronicle - about 2 years
PHOENIX – Pete Carroll came within 1 yard – and one inexplicably bad play call – of becoming the first coach to win two Super Bowls and two collegiate national championships. As a result of the worst call in Super Bowl history – and a magnificent interception by New England cornerback Malcolm Butler – Bill Belichick made history by joining Chuck Noll as the only coaches to win four Super Bowls. The day after the Patriots’ 28-24 victory over the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX, the primary focus was not on Butler’s marvelous goal-line interception that preserved the victory or the MVP performance of New England quarterback Tom Brady. Instead, observers raged on about “the call.” Carroll, whose top-ranked defense became the first to blow a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter of a Super Bowl, should be commended for trying to take the blame for offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell’s preposterous decision to pass from New England’s 1 with 26 seconds remaining. When you think of Se ...

Super Bowl Preview Part 2: Seattle Seahawks Offense vs. Denver Broncos Defense
Huffington Post - about 3 years
In the shadow of the NFL's biggest game, the Broncos defensive and Seahawks offensive players must feel like the forgotten stepchildren of Super Bowl hype. Outside of Seattle super-rusher Marshawn Lynch, impressive young QB Russell Wilson, Denver's new sensation DT Terrance Knighton and veteran Broncos CB Champ Bailey, many of these players are not well known. That is about to change. The Seattle offense's stats may pale in comparison to Denver's record-breaking numbers, with a mere 26.1 points per game in the playoffs. Yet, here they are in New York and the score is 0-0. The unit has averaged 339 total yards per game: 202.2 passing yards and136.8 rushing yards. The offense has achieved only 27 first downs compared to opponents 41, but the 'Hawks have a +3 turnover count. Denver's TO ratio is -2.* Hmmm. The rather maligned Denver D's playoff numbers include 24.9 points per game. Resurrecting themselves after multiple starter injuries, this squad gave up a total of 129 rushing yards ...

NFL Conference Championships: Preview and Predictions

NFL fans wait all year for Championship Sunday. The AFC and NFC title matches feature equally talented squads battling familiar foes with unrivaled intensity. This Sunday will showcase football play of the highest caliber as the consensus four best teams compete for a chance to play one more game in 2014. The similarities between the Denver Broncos, New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers highlight both new and traditional aspects of winning team attributes. None play in a dome, which is appropriate for a Super Bowl set outdoors in New York. All four teams are fortunate to possess the all-important "franchise" quarterback. They are very different men: two are late-30s quintessential pocket passing field generals and two are new-breed, mobile QBs capable of enormous rushing plays and rocketed deep balls.

Patriots vs. Broncos: Stars Who Must Step Up in 2014 AFC Championship Game
Bleacher Report - about 3 years
The NFL's biggest stars have a penchant for shining the brightest under the heavy pressure of playoff football.  The upcoming AFC Championship Game featuring the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos will likely come down to the wire. Both teams could easily win the contest, meaning the outcome will likely be decided based on which team's stars come through in the clutch.  However, there are a few such stars who haven't exactly been playing their best ball of late. But with just one game left—a do-or-die scenario, at that—they must come through with a stellar performance in order to secure victory for their respective teams.    Eric Decker, WR, Denver Broncos When Eric Decker is hot, he's really hot. But when he's not, he's really not.  Decker showed up for the divisional round against San Diego as the "not" version of himself, catching just two passes for 32 yards. Even worse, he made two huge blunders in the contest: He first tripped on his own feet on a punt return ...

Rain? No problem.
This webpage is not available - about 3 years
It’s a rainy and windy night at Gillette Stadium, but you wouldn’t know it looking at the stat lines of the Patriots and Colts as they battle for a spot in the AFC championship game. Both teams came out firing on all cylinders with no regard for the wet conditions. Rather than rely mostly on their run games as would be expected, Tom Brady and Andrew Luck felt confident enough to put their arms to work. It proved costly to Luck early on, as he was picked off by Alfonzo Dennard during the opening drive. Dennard nearly took it in for six but stepped out of bounds at the 2 yard line. Instead the offense took over and LeGarrette Blount continued his hot streak, scoring with ease after a handoff from Brady. For Brady it was business as usual, finding Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola as the Patriots made their way down the field. Blount made it clear he enjoyed scoring a pair of touchdowns two weeks ago by taking it to the house for a second time this evening. Andrew Luck’s passing g ...

What To Watch For When Andrew Luck And Tom Brady Square Off
Huffington Post Sports - about 3 years
The Andrew Luck vs. Peyton Manning comparisons have been made time and time again. Now Luck gets his chance to do what one of the greatest never could: win a playoff game in Foxboro. Manning lost two of those during his 13 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. On Saturday, Luck -- whose Colts fell 59-24 last season at New England -- gets a shot at Indy redemption. Meanwhile, for Tom Brady and the Patriots, it's business as usual, despite the absence of All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski. Let's take a look at the keys to each offense in one of this weekend's most anticipated Divisional Round match-ups. When Luck is on the field: Luck's mobility has become a real weapon. Don't forget that he ran 40 yards in 4.6 seconds at the NFL Combine, and whether it was breaking free for a big run against Kansas City or simply extending a play with his legs, he has been extremely dangerous on the move. But the Pats, anchored by defensive end Chandler Jones, possess an elite pass rush that rank ...

    More Details Hide Details
    In the aftermath of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, Amendola pledged on his Twitter feed to donate to a recovery fund $100 for every pass he catches during the 2013 season, and $200 for every dropped pass.
    More Details Hide Details Patriots defensive back Devin McCourty, citing Amendola, made a similar pledge ($100 per tackle, and $200 per interception). In his Week 1 debut with New England, Amendola suffered a groin injury in the first half. He then returned after halftime to finish the game with 10 catches for 104 yards. Three of his catches were on crucial 3rd downs including two on the game-winning drive.
  • 2012

    More Details Hide Details On March 13, 2013, just hours after New England Patriots slot receiver Wes Welker signed with the Denver Broncos, the Patriots announced the signing of Amendola. Amendola received a five-year contract for $28.5 million, with $10 million of that money guaranteed. According to Tom E. Curran of CSN New England, Amendola actually signed with the Patriots before Welker signed with the Broncos.
    On October 6, 2012, Amendola suffered a dislocated clavicle.
    More Details Hide Details In a rare case, instead of popping out, the clavicle popped in and came millimeters from puncturing his trachea and aorta, which could have killed him. Rams' medical staff called around the league for information but no teams had ever had players suffering a similar injury. Amendola was anesthetized before popping the clavicle back into place. Due to the unusual nature of the injury the Rams were not certain when Amendola would return, but he was able to recover after just three weeks and recorded 11 catches for 102 yards in a hard-fought tie with the San Francisco 49ers.
    On September 16, 2012, Amendola had 12 catches in the first half in a Week 2 game against the Washington Redskins that tied the record for most catches in a half set by Reggie Wayne in 2007.

  • TEENAGE
  • 2005
    Age 19
    Another game-changing play came when Amendola recovered the fumble from an intercepted pass during the final drive of the 2005 game against Nebraska.
    More Details Hide Details Tech needed a touchdown to win. Tech quarterback Cody Hodges' pass was tipped and intercepted. Instead of taking a knee to seal the victory, the Nebraska defender decided to run with the ball and had it stripped. Amendola dove for the loose ball and recovered it. Tech retained possession, resulting in a game-winning touchdown pass from Hodges to Joel Filani on fourth down with under 30 seconds remaining. Amendola majored in Communication Studies, but left early to train for the NFL Combine. Amendola has drawn numerous comparisons to former Tech receiver Wes Welker, whose NFL career included stints with the Miami Dolphins, the New England Patriots, and the Denver Broncos, as the two have similar builds (Welker is 5'9", 185 lb, while Amendola is 5'11", 183 lb), and played the same positions at Tech (slot receiver and punt returner).
    During the 2005 season, Amendola made two memorable plays that led to Red Raider victories.
    More Details Hide Details The first was late in the 2005 game against Oklahoma. Tech was trailing and on fourth down, a Cody Hodges pass attempt was tipped, and Amendola made a leaping catch in traffic. He was tackled immediately and appeared to have been stopped just short of a first down. However, the spot was reviewed by the replay officials and the final spot of the ball resulted in a first down. The drive was kept alive and resulted in yet another disputed call—Taurean Henderson's stretch over the goal line on the final play of regulation, which gave the Red Raiders the victory over the Sooners.
  • 2004
    Age 18
    He also caught 13 passes during the season, including one touchdown pass during the 2004 game against Baylor.
    More Details Hide Details
    In his freshman 2004 season, Amendola saw limited duty on offense but was Tech's leading punt returner.
