Tom Brady refuses to show his injured right hand, even as he arrived Sunday to Gillette Stadium ahead of Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Sunday’s point total was Florida State’s lowest output since a 73-49 loss to UConn on Dec. 11, 2015. And as unlikely as it seemed that the Seminoles would get their ninth win in program history over a top-five team by scoring just 50 points, it happened.
Louisville and Notre Dame join unbeaten UConn and Mississippi State as No. 1 seeds in Charlie Creme’s latest 64-team projection. Florida State, which handed the Cardinals their first loss Sunday, move up to a No. 2.
The NCAA committee revealed its top 16 last week. And though only four days have passed, a lot can change in the bracket when multiple top-10 teams lose in a weekend. So why are the Cardinals still on the top line? Charlie Creme explains.
Patriots linebacker James Harrison has seen it all in his 15 years in the NFL and he is the last person to take the rookie lightly.
It’s another monster that we’ve got to try to contain, Harrison told reporters Friday, via ESPN.
While Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles might not be as bad as many make him out to be, the true threat on the Jaguars’ offense is Fournette. He has rushed for 1,040 yards and nine touchdowns during his rookie season, and has eclipsed 100 yards rushing six times including in the divisional round against the Steelers.
Bortles is much more effective when he has time to throw and when the Jaguars are able to run play-action. If Fournette is running well, the play-action passing game is even more effective. The Patriots will focus first on shutting down Fournette on offense first. That’s what Bill Belichick does on a week-in, week-out basis. He tries to take the opponent’s best weapon out of the picture.
