New England vs. St. Louis Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET, at Wembley Stadium, London, England - TV: CBS; DirecTV: 711 *TV announcers: Jim Nantz, Phil Simms *Keys to the game: The Rams moved the pocket, highlighting the underrated athleticism of QB Sam Bradford, to keep him clear of Clay Matthews last week. A mishmash of niche receivers and a diminished role for RB Steven Jackson is causing the offense to be more disjointed, but the positive development has been the play in the trenches -- on both sides of the ball -- for St. Louis. The Patriots have the right tools to chip away at the Rams' hard-nosed defense. First priority for QB Tom Brady is getting the ball out before DEs Robert Quinn and Chris Long fire off the line. New England's screen game utilizes shifty RB Danny Woodhead and both tight ends -- Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez -- and is a source of big plays against defenses that dare to play "cover 0" with straight man-to-man assignments all over the field....

When Dan Patrick asked Rob Gronkowski whether they would "crush beers" if the two were to ever hang out, Gronk denied ever "crushing" said beverage.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots, who already lost three games this season by four points, were on the brink of another crushing loss Sunday. This one was coming at the hands of the New York Jets. Cue Tom Brady.

When Bill Belichick
led the Patriots across the pond three years ago, the result was a 35-7 rout of
the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But Belichick admits that the transition wasn't as
easy as the final score might indicate.
This time around,
Belichick is much more aware of the situation, including the six hour
difference in time zones, and he's making sure...
Who's that standing behind Tom Brady? Is that Trump? Yes it is.Evil is on our side!!

This week there are 4 teams on bye, Baltimore, Buffalo, Cincinnati and Houston. That along with the fact that many big name...
