Ravens LB Ayanbadejo blasts Pats, and their fans, on Twitter

The Patriots didn't even have to finish their game against the Texans before they got some bulletin board material for their next game against the Ravens.

Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo was Tweeting his thoughts on the Patriots during the game, and it will surely reach the Patriots. He called their no-huddle offense a "gimmick" and "suspect", and said he "can't really respect it". (Update: He has since apologized)

Nor does he seem to have much respect for the Patriots in general. He called them "the same organization that did Spygate and cut a guy Tiquan Underwood the day before the Super Bowl". When Patriots fans answered back, he taunted "18-1" -- referring, of course, to the 2007 perfect season that wasn't.

And this is a 36-year-old knockabout, backup linebacker. Imagine when the Ravens' real mouths, like Terrell Suggs, get motoring.

Patriots won’t have to deal with Bills WR Sammy Watkins on Sunday.

Patriots won’t have to deal with Bills WR Sammy Watkins on Sunday.

FOXBORO - Scratch the estimable Sammy Watkins from the Bills roster for Sunday. 

Buffalo shared via Twitter that their long, tall wideout is out for Sunday with a foot injury. Also down are wideout Greg Salas and left tackle Cyrus Kouandijo.

The Bills' starting left tackle Cordy Glenn has been dealing with an ankle injury that caused him to miss last week's game. 

Robert Woods will be the Bills best outside threat with Watkins taking Sunday off. The Bills' talented corner Ronald Darby is also trying to get back this week from a hamstring injury that caused him to miss last week's game with Arizona.
