Game Recap and Site Update

<p>In case you haven't noticed. The site was affected by the recent thunderstorms in the New England area. <br> <br>While we struggled with a lack of power the last two days, it appears we weren't the only ones.</p> <p>The team suffered a humbling loss to the Bengals last night. We've updated <a href="http://patriots.theinsiders.com/3/wiretext.html">today's NEWSWIRE</a>, and are working on bringing you additional updates throughout the day. Discuss it in the Forums.</p>

As we regain our senses and our bearings on important things like football, we have to adjust to the priviledges of electricity actually working and Internet Access being restored. With pots of coffee and leftover takeout already consumed, we get to turn our attention to last nights debacle.

Be sure to watch todays Patriots Insider front page and the Football forums for game summary information as well as some events that have transpired within the division.
