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:

Let us know in the comments section and be sure to watch UNO's Sports Tonight at 6:30 p.m. to continue the discussion.

Andrew Hawkins celebrates joining Patriots with 'Ballers' spoof

Andrew Hawkins' situation isn't far off from a character in HBO's "Ballers." And he played into those connections with a video on Twitter.

The slot receiver, who signed with the Patriots on Wednesday, shares some similarities with the fictional football player Rickey Jerret, a veteran receiver who wades through interest from a number of teams, including New England, during free agency. Because of those similarities, Hawkins spoofed on a scene from "Ballers" where Jerret works out with Patriots receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. Hawkins imposes his face over Jerret's.
