  CSNNE's partner FanDuel is hosting a one-week $90,000 Fantasy Football league for Week 17. It's just $10 to join and first prize is $10,000.
  Starts Sunday at 1pm ET.
Here's the link.

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo and his "good friend" Patriots insider Tom E. Curran break down the team's multiple blitz schemes.

Mayo points out that when one extra person beyond the four down linemen are rushing the quarterback, it's technically not a blitz, but a "pressure."

Add in another pass rusher, and you have a blitz.

And what does Tom Brady mean when he yells, "51's the mike!" when he's calling signals?

Watch and learn.
