Tom Brady’s healthy lifestyle book, “The TB12 Method,” went on sale earlier this week, but don’t expect Bill Belichick to be picking up a copy.
The Patriots coach was asked at his Wednesday press conference if he was interested in reading the book, which details Brady’s plant-based diet and his workout routine — two things the quarterback claims has helped him maintain his playing abilities.
“We see Tom every day,” Belichick said. “I don’t really feel like I need to read a book.”

The book, which was at the top of Amazon’s pre-order list, is not that expensive. Yet again, maybe Belichick doesn’t want to read about how beer and cheese is bad for you.
The rookie first-rounder isn’t consistent yet, and turnovers are a concern — Watson fumbled twice and threw an ugly interception off his back foot before adding another pick on a Hail Mary at the end of the game — but he offers infinitely more upside compared to Savage. The 35-yard pass Watson completed to Ryan Griffin across his body from the numbers on one side of the field to the other on second-and-22 was one of the most impressive passes of the day.
As for the Patriots, the concern has to be that several of their stars aren’t playing very well this season. Devin McCourty, the leader of what was supposed to be one of the best secondaries in football, has been a mess and was victimized for at least one touchdown pass on Sunday. Solder has been out of sorts all season. You have to assume they’ll figure things out, given that the Patriots always do over the course of a campaign, but this isn’t the Pats team people expected might flirt with a 16-0 record.

Now three sacks in one game is impressive as hell, but that none of those three were the most important play Jones made on Sunday.
Quandre Diggs Womens Jersey To understand you have to go back to when the the score was tied at 13-13 with 9:23 left in the game. The context here is that on their previous drive, the Eagles had kicked a field goal to tie things up and Kansas City’s offense subsequently went three and out to put the defense right back on the field. If Philly was able to score on that drive and go up for only the second time, there was a good chance it might finally pull away.
Once again Jones was lined up at the right three-technique. The Eagles were trying to run a screen with Darren Sproles on third-and-12 from their own 31-yard line. The offensive line for the most part let everyone go, as they were supposed to, but Houston was so fast off the edge that he was able to get close enough to Wentz just as he was throwing the football to tip the pass up in the air.

Jones, on the other hand, could feel from the blocking that it was a screen and stopped getting up field almost immediately after he cleared Seumalo. His discipline with his keys allowed him to be in position adjust to the tipped pass in the air and catch the the interception before being taken down at the original line of scrimmage.
Doug Marrone opens the season with back-to-back runs by Leonard Fournette. On the opening play, our tight end pulls to lead block for Fournette. Cam Robinson gets beat off the line to the outside by JJ Watt. Unfortunately, a quick fake is all it takes for the future Hall of Fame player to beat our rookie left tackle.
Tight end Ben Koyack, on the pull, is forced to pick him up leaving the linebacker Benardrick McKinney to free make the tackle. McKinney gets juked by a spin move inside his own front seven and their safety Andre Hal picks up the tackle.
Tom Brady has joined the growing number of players who believe Colin Kaepernick is still qualified to play in the NFL.
In an interview with CBS This Morning, Brady told Norah O’Donnell that he hopes Kaepernick gets another chance in the league.
“I’ve always watched him and admired him, the way that he’s played,” Brady said. “He was a great young quarterback. He came to our stadium and beat us and took his team to the Super Bowl in 2012. He accomplished a lot in the pros as a player. And he’s certainly qualified, and I hope he gets a shot.”
The LED lights are not the Falcons’ only sustainability initiatives in the new stadium. Back in October 2016, then-President Barack Obama and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy for Sustainability recognized Mercedes-Benz Stadium for being so ecologically friendly.
“From inception, Arthur Blank challenged us to make Mercedes-Benz Stadium one of the most sustainable buildings in sports,” Scott Jenkins, the general manager of Mercedes-Benz Stadium, said at the time.
Mercedes-Benz Stadium is the first sports facility to receive LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Development) Platinum status. The factors considered include energy efficiency, water use, and other sustainability factors.
And the stadium looking brighter on television is just a pleasant byproduct.
DeMaurice Smith was re-elected NFL Players Association executive director on Tuesday night by a 14-0 vote of the selection committee. The three-year term runs through 2021, which coincides with the final year of the current collective bargaining agreement.
This union is centered on player leadership. I am proud of their commitment, humbled by their trust in me and honored to serve. There is more work to be done, Smith said in tweet that featured the hashtag #OneTeam.
Elite Womens Jermon Bushrod Jersey Tillman, 36, earned a criminal justice degree from Louisiana-Lafayette. His father, Donald Tillman Jr., was a sergeant in the Army.
Tillman’s interest in possibly joining the FBI after football dates back to his playing career, during which Tillman — according to another source — occasionally observed and worked alongside law enforcement officials during offseasons.
One of the greatest defensive backs in Bears history, Tillman played 12 seasons with Chicago, earning two Pro Bowl nods and being named the NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year in 2013. He also won the NFL’s Salute to Service award in 2012.
Tillman played his final season with the Carolina Panthers in 2015 but signed a one-day contract to retire as a Bear in July 2016.
He spent his first year out of football working as an NFL analyst for Fox Sports.

Offensive Rookie of the Year: Zay Jones, WR, Bills: After trading Sammy Watkins to the Rams, who signed former Bills receiver Robert Woods in the offseason, and the retirement of Anquan Boldin, Jones was thrust into the No. 1 role. The former East Carolina receiver is the FBS all-time leader in career and single-season receptions. Jones had an excellent preseason and could be looking at a big year as Buffalo’s top receiver.
Defensive Rookie of the Year: Reuben Foster, LB, 49ers: After a season-ending shoulder injury to Malcolm Smith, Foster was thrust into a starting role and made the most of it during the preseason. Foster was viewed as one of the most complete defensive players in the 2017 draft class after recording 115 tackles, with 13 for losses and five sacks, last season for Alabama.

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, whose six-game suspension was put on hold by a judge’s order Friday, said he is happy he will finally get a chance to prove my innocence.
On Monday, Mazzant did order the NFL Players Association to file a response to the NFL’s request for a stay by Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET. The NFL will have until 6 p.m. Friday to file its response.
If the judge will not reverse his decision, it’s not clear how quickly an appeal will be heard. If Mazzant’s initial decision is overturned, then Elliott’s suspension could go into effect immediately.
A blowout win is a pretty good way to kick off the second season of Jared Goff, with him looking like a QB worthy of the No. 1 overall pick. Now comes the hard part: doing it against somebody other than the Colts’ defense.

Marshawn Lynch’s first game back after spending a year in retirement showed that he’s still got plenty of gas left in the tank, and that he’s going to be fun this season. It ended with a Raiders 26-16 win on the road.
Womens Desmond Bryant Jersey Lynch’s return came with runs, antics, and emotion we’re used to seeing out of him. He finished the game with 18 carries for 76 yards, as well as one reception for 16 yards. It wasn’t a spectacular game or anything, but it was a good performance for somebody who took an entire season off.
We knew that playing for the Raiders was going to bring the very best out of Lynch, and it was nice to see it all together.

The NFL is not close to making a decision regarding this week’s games, said Joe Lockhart, the league’s senior vice president of communications. On Sunday, Tampa Bay’s delayed season opener is scheduled at home against the Chicago Bears, and Jacksonville has its home opener against the Tennessee Titans.
We’re having a different conversation than we thought on Friday,” Lockhart said. Miami and Tampa Bay received less than expected, and Jacksonville probably received more. … Looking at Jacksonville and Tampa, we don’t have any definite word. We’re still doing assessments. We hope to have something in next few days.”
The Dolphins evacuated from South Florida before the storm’s arrival and will practice in Oxnard, California, this week to prepare for their delayed start of the season. The Dolphins will have a team meeting Tuesday and will practice beginning Wednesday at the Dallas Cowboys’ complex.
The Dolphins’ first home game is now scheduled for Oct. 8 against Tennessee.
The Marlins begin a three-game series in Philadelphia in Tuesday, and are scheduled to return home Friday to face Milwaukee.
The impending clash of Hurricane Irma on Florida’s southern coast has caused a Week 1 matchup between the Buccaneers and Dolphins to either be moved to a later date or new location.
Both teams are on bye during Week 11, so there has been talk of moving the game back. But the two teams may have found a neutral site in Pittsburgh or Philadelphia to keep the game this weekend, according to ESPN.com.
The Steelers announced the signing Wednesday night but did not disclose the fiscal terms.
Haden was released by the Browns earlier Wednesday and it was reported that the Saints, Chiefs and Cowboys were also interested in recruiting him, but the process didn’t take long.
Haden had been under contract for $11.1 million this season, $11.2 million next season and $10.5 million in 2019, though he was not subject to waivers and was free to sign with another team beginning Wednesday after 4 p.m. ET.
Despite back-to-back Pro Bowl selections, Haden’s reliability has decreased due to missing a number of games over the past two years with various injuries, including a concussion, finger injury and a groin issue.
Nonetheless, the Steelers are willing to roll the dice on the 28-year-old.
Brandon Sutter Elite Jersey Terrell Owens was a beast during his playing days. Even in the later stages of his career, he was still a threat, going for 983 yards in 14 games during his final season with the Bengals in 2010. And seven years later, he believes he can still help an NFL franchise.
Outside of that, could Owens still play at 43? Possibly. He’s in great shape, better than most 43-year-olds, but he probably wouldn’t be able to produce as much as he’d have to be worth for a team to take him. Not only is he 43, but he’s also been out of the league for seven years.

If not for Owens’ perceived off-field image, he certainly should have played more seasons in the NFL than he did. But at a certain point, it’s a good time to call it quits.
The most memorable moment to come out of Sunday’s games was the incredible touchdown pass Wentz threw to Nelson Agholor. You’ve seen it already, but Wentz’s ability to elude pressure from the pocket and escape to safety before finding and firing a strike to an open receiver downfield was positively Russell Wilson-esque. Everything from the footwork to the consistent vision looking downfield was textbook. You couldn’t ask for more out of Wentz than you got on that play.
Wentz’s numbers, by the end of the day, were pretty: He finished 26-of-39 for 307 yards with two touchdowns, although the second-year passer also threw in an interception, a lost fumble (of sorts) and a couple of passes which the announcing crew characterized as near-picks.
Indeed, a closer look at Wentz’s day wasn’t quite as rosy. All brilliance on that one play aside, Wentz was wildly inconsistent during Philadelphia’s 30-17 win in Washington, showing some of the same problems that frustrated Eagles fans during an up-and-down rookie campaign.

This game is a rematch of last year’s epic London clash, which ended in a tie after both teams’ kickers missed a field goal in overtime. It was an appropriate way for the game to end. Regardless, Washington enters this year with a new-look offense after losing DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, but adding Terrelle Pryor. The Bengals also revamped their offense with the additions of Joe Mixon and John Ross, though they lost some important pieces on the offensive line.
Green was on his way to another fantastic season before a torn hamstring ended it after just 10 games. He’s healthy now and should resume being one of the league’s best receivers. He makes the entire offense dangerous just by being on the field and is Andy Dalton’s best target by far. It’ll be nice to see Green back even if he plays just a handful of snaps here.
The Rams have continually said the right things publicly — dating all the way back to early March, when Snead said at the scouting combine that Donald deserves a raise — but apparently haven’t put the right things on paper.
Kenny Stills Authentic Jersey Demoff, Snead and Pastoors have made it a point to keep McVay out of the details of their negotiations. McVay appreciates that. It allows McVay to focus only on football in his conversations with Donald. They talk about what he has missed and how he fits, and McVay tells him how badly he wants him around. He believes the feeling is mutual.
He wants to be here, McVay said of Donald. We respect their approach and where they’re at, their stance, based on what they want to get accomplished out of these things. But with regards to mine and Aaron’s dialogue, it’s been exclusively player-coach football related stuff. That’s what you want it to be.

Kids Anthony Fasano Jersey Buffalo was middle of the road in the NFL for yardage on offense and defense, ranking No. 16 and 19 respectively. They were not far from a winning record last year at 7-9 with four net close losses, but their seven wins came versus six teams with a losing record and a New England team down to its third-string quarterback. In the past four years, the Bills are dead even at 31-31-2 ATS.
Super Bowl LII odds: The Bills are 20-1 to win the division, 100-1 to win the AFC and 200-1 to win the Super Bowl. Those are big odds, but I have no interest in any of them.
None of this is Allen’s fault. He’s a talented athlete. His team is a blast in Mountain West games. The Cowboys were one of 2016’s feel-good stories, coming out of nowhere to win their first division title ever.
Going forward, I’m gonna try to ignore the NFL hype and just appreciate Allen for what he currently is: a promising, entertaining, small-school quarterback. If he goes on a surprise tear for the rest of the season and makes first-round money, excellent.
If the NFL side were able to wait until after junior seasons to start picking out seemingly random players, that would also be excellent, but I understand why talented college quarterbacks will always face massive spotlights.
A lot of guys have egos that couldn’t handle getting beat up in front of family, friends, everyone on the block, loved ones, grandma, grandpa, Mitrione said. I have a big mouth and I’m pretty obnoxious. So I fought a lot and got beat up a lot, so that concern wasn’t overwhelming for me. Getting my ass kicked in front of five million people wasn’t that much of a concern for me.
