Would Patriots record be different had real refs been involved?

Rejoice! The replacement officials are gone for good! Well, at least for another eight years.

But it will take fans a long time to forget the disaster that was the NFL season for the first three weeks. Is it a coincidence that the Patriots lost two games during that time? We all know how things got a bit out of hand against the Ravens.

That's where our UNO's Sports Tonight Question of the Day comes in:

Giardi: Garoppolo 'still in pain,' does not have full mobility in shoulder

Giardi: Garoppolo 'still in pain,' does not have full mobility in shoulder

The Patriots had both Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett on the field for Tuesday's practice.

While many are hopeful that Garoppolo will be ready to go on Sunday, it’s definitely not a given at this point.

According to CSN’s Mike Giardi, Garoppolo is “still in pain and does not yet have full mobility in his throwing shoulder”

Tom E. Curran had better news about Jacoby Brissett’s thumb. The rookie quarterback was in the Patriots locker room locker room Tuesday morning without splint, tape or cast on his thumb. 

When he asked Brissett if he's feeling "tip-top," he answered, "Oh yeah."
