Curran: Liked the rotation of the offensive line


Curran: Liked the rotation of the offensive line

The offensive line has been a touchy subject since training camp began -- and for good reason.

They didn't perform well in preseason, and there was a lot doubt heading into Week 1 on whether they could protect Tom Brady.

Well, when the dust settled, Brady was only sacked once, and the line held strong for most of the game. Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran and CSNNE's Mike Giardi discuss the line's day and Brandon Lloyd's first game with the Pats.

Obama’s Super Bowl pick: Patriots over Seahawks, again


Obama’s Super Bowl pick: Patriots over Seahawks, again

Tom Brady didn’t go to the White House after the Patriots’ Super Bowl victory over the Seahawks, but the President thinks the Pats will be visiting 1600 Pensylvania Ave. again to be welcomed by President Trump (does that mean Brady goes?) or Clinton in the spring of 2017.

In an interview on Sirus/XM Radio with Sway Calloway, Obama sees a Pats-Seahawks rematch in Super Bowl 51. And if he were a betting man, he’d be going with New England, again. 

“I’ve got to say at this point, you have to put your money on Brady again,” Obama said. “I don’t see any strong teams. Seattle and Patriots have a rematch. That’s my call.”

Obama and the nation will get a preview of his pick on Week 10 at Gillette Stadium when the Pats host the Seahawks.

Oh, and the President likes the Golden State Warriors, particularly with the addition of Kevin Durant, to reclaim the NBA title. 


Bills injury report: RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) doubtful


Bills injury report: RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) doubtful

FOXBORO – After being unable to practice all week for the Buffalo Bills, running back LeSean McCoy is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Patriots due to a hamstring injury.

Already ruled out for Buffalo are wide receiver Marquise Goodwin and safety Aaron Williams.

The Bills also have a fleet of players listed as questionable including DT Bryant Corbin (shoulder), TE Charles Clay (knee), DT Marcell Dareus (hamstring), RB Mike Gillislee (foot), TE Cordy Glenn (ankle), LB Jerry Hughes (hand), LB Lerentee McCray (knee), G John Miller (shoulder) and WR Robert Woods.

The skill position dings to Goodwin, McCoy, Clay, Gillislee, Glenn and Woods have to be a concern for the Bills who already have their best wideout, Sammy Watkins, on injured reserve.
