Some notes and nuggets from the New England Patriots’ 33-8 trouncing of the Oakland Raiders on Sunday in Mexico City:— The Patriots played without two of their starting linemen and did not miss a beat. LaAdrian Waddle and Ted Karras fared well in place of the inactive Marcus Cannon and David Andrews, respectively, helping keep quarterback Tom Brady upright for much of the game and clearing running lanes for Dion Lewis and Rex Burkhead.
The New England Patriots faced little resistance in Sunday’s 33-8 demolition of the Oakland Raiders, but had a play or two broken differently, they might have entered halftime with a measly seven-point lead. After a Danny Amendola touchdown catch put the Patriots ahead 14-0 late in the second quarter, the Raiders marched all the way to New England’s 15-yard line thanks to some tough running by Marshawn Lynch and Jalen Richard.
Remember when the New England Patriots couldn’t stop anyone? When they were giving up 30-plus points per game? When they were letting receivers run unchecked through the secondary on play after play? My, how things have changed. Since surrendering 33 points in a Week 4 loss to the Carolina Panthers, the Patriots have looked like a completely new team on defense, allowing 17 or fewer points in each of their last six games.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
