Pats-Colts no longer a night game


Pats-Colts no longer a night game

Used to be the networks fought over those late-season Patriots-Colts matchups.

Now they can't wait to get rid of them.

NBC announced Tuesday that it is giving this year's Indianapolis-at-New England game on Dec. 4, originally scheduled for Sunday Night Football at 8:20 p.m., back to CBS. And the Patriots subsequently announced that the game will begin at 1 p.m. . . . making it the first 1 p.m. start at Gillette this year. (Two others -- the Dec. 24 meeting with Miami and the season-ending Jan. 1 game against Buffalo -- are scheduled for 1 p.m., but one or both could be flexed to a later time.)

The reason? The Colts are 0-9 and the Patriots are 5-3, which is not what NBC expected -- or hoped -- when the game was originally scheduled.

Tom Brady congratulates Jordan Spieth on British Open win with Facebook video

Jordan Spieth's wayward drive on the 13th hole was nothing more than a speed bump on his way to the British Open title on Sunday.

On Facebook, Tom Brady congratulated his fellow Under Armour endorser in a post shared with another world famous UA pitchman, the Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry.

Brady quoted Curry and posted a short video of Spieth climbing the hill well off the fairway on the 13th hole at Royal Birkdale, where Spieth recovered from a wild tee shot and rallied over the final holes to win the Open Championship. A smiling Robert Redford from "Jeremiah Johnson" nodding in appreciation finishes off the clip.

Drive on #13? As Steph says, make that old. Congrats Jordan Spieth 🏆🏆🏆
