Brown: Luck 'reminds me a lot' of Brady

The Patriots and Colts will face off on Sunday, which means New England will get its first taste of Andrew Luck.

Luck is having a superb season, but if there's one knock on him it's that he's thrown 10 interceptions thus far. New England is the best in the NFL at winning the turnover battle, so they'll have to do it again on Sunday.

Troy Brown talked about that aspect of the game on Sports Tonight with Gary Tanguay, but the discussion quickly turned to Luck and his season thus far.

It's pretty clear based on who Luck reminds Brown of that he's very high on the Colts QB.

"I think he's fantastic," Brown said. "I think he's growing. He's kind of making me stick my foot in my mouth; I didn't think he would mature this fast. He reminds me a lot of Tom Brady, but he;s much more athletic than Brady is in the pocket, and he's able to find open guys. He doesn't lock into one guy and stare him down the whole time. He does a great job of looking off the defense and taking what the defense gives him. So he's a great young talent and obviously his best years are ahead of him."

Brown had more praise for Luck, so check out the video for the rest of what he said.

Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1

HARRISON, N.J. - Daniel Royer finished a nice sequence in the 74th minute, Luis Robles made a diving save in the closing minutes and the New York Red Bulls rallied to beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.

Felipe sent the ball left to Kemar Lawrence alongside the box and he put a cross to Royer on the back post for an easy finish on his fourth goal.

Robles, who only allowed Lee Nguyen's penalty kick in the ninth minute, preserved the win with his fourth save, diving to his left to block Diego Fagundez's shot from outside the box.

Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it for New York (6-6-2), which was winless in its last four matches, when he pounced on a loose ball and backheeled it into the net. New England goalkeeper Cody Cropper had pounced on a cross by Kemar Lawance, but Cropper could hold on and Wright-Phillips was there to clean up for his sixth goal.

Damien Perrinelle fouled Fagundez in the penalty area after a great pass from Kei Kamara, allowing Nguyen to step up for his sixth goal. New England (4-5-4) had won two straight and lost just one of its previous six. It is 0-5-2 on the road.
