The Patriots improved to 4-2 with a 24-17 win over the Jets on Sunday that featured some good work on both sides of the ball without being quite as overwhelming as many people thought the Patriots would be this season. Patriots coach Bill Belichick was not one of the people making that claim and he gave a pretty good answer about why no one should have expected the Patriots to be at their peak from the first week of the season. During his Monday conference call, Belichick was asked about balancing adjustments with the scheme that was installed before the season. In a 789-word answer, Belichick veered into a discussion about how much better a team is by the end of the season because they have more practice time and a greater sense of what works for them that touched on criticisms of where his team is at this point in the year.
NEW YORK -- After meeting with owners and players Tuesday concerning social issues, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said the league did not ask for any changes to the policy on the national anthem. "We did not ask for it," Goodell said. "We spent today talking about the issues players are trying to bring attention to. Issues in our communities, to make our communities better." That policy states that the players "should" stand for the anthem, and some have suggested the league would seek to change that to "must" stand. Goodell said in a memo to teams last week that the NFL prefers for players to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner." The commissioner on Tuesday called the discussion with the
The 2017 fantasy football season has been riddled with devastating injuries to superstar players and Week 6 brought more of the same. Aaron Rodgers, almost always amongst the top point producers at the quarterback position, was the latest big name to go down—likely for the rest of the campaign—after he suffered a broken collarbone on his throwing shoulder. His fantasy owners will now be lining up to make a claim on the waiver wire, hoping to find a replacement to stick in the starting lineup in time for their Week 7 matchup. If you were one of the unfortunate fantasy owners that drafted Rodgers this year—or Leonard Fournette (knee), Jameis Winston (shoulder), Emmanuel Sanders (leg), Tyreek Hill

BEREA, Ohio -- Just like last Monday, Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson is beginning another week unsure which quarterback he will start against the Tennessee Titans next Sunday. Jackson chose to bench DeShone Kizer after Kizer turned the ball over twice in the red zone in the loss to the New York Jets two weeks ago, but the experiment failed when Kevin Hogan threw three interceptions, one for a pick-six, in an embarrassing 33-17 loss to the Texans in Houston this past weekend. "I'll make that (decision) by Wednesday," Jackson said on Monday. "I'm in the midst of it right now. Getting closer, but we'll know for sure on Wednesday." Jackson is in a desperate situation with limited options.
