The New England Patriots have by far the best record in the NFL since the start of the 2001 season, when Tom Brady ascended as starting quarterback for coach Bill Belichick’s team. No franchise is within 30 victories of their 196-60 regular-season record.
‘I don’t know how he caught it’: Inside Edelman’s impossible grab
Josh McDaniels said: “All I could do was hold my breath, thinking it might be picked off.” But instead, Julian Edelman pulled off a catch for the ages as the Patriots refused to surrender.
Ryan Tannehill is signed for four more years at an average of more than $18 million per year. He played well in 2016 under new coach Adam Gase, but Miami seems to want to run its offense through the running game, and you wonder whether the Dolphins will want to keep paying Tannehill at that level if they’re not asking much from him. No money is guaranteed beyond 2017.
“People might say, oh they’re this, they’re that, or I made a comment about cold weather and they kind of pointed toward Cleveland,” Garrett said. “It doesn’t matter to me. I’ll play wherever they put me. It’s about your mindset you go into it [with]. If you go in there with a mindset that you’re going to turn things around, you can make that contagious and people start to believe in it, then you can turn it into a winning program wherever you go.”
Garrett grew up in Arlington, where the Cowboys play. He is projected to be one of the top two or three picks in this draft, perhaps the first overall.
“I’ve already said I like the Cowboys because that’s my hometown team,” Garrett told ESPN on Saturday. “Everybody knows you’re going to like your hometown team. But I want to go No. 1, whoever that is. If that’s Cleveland, I have no problem going up there and playing with them. I’m going to love whatever team and organization that I’m a part of.
