"We can't let Brandin Cooks get a deep ball", safety Kenny Vaccaro said of what should probably rank as New Orleans' No. 1 priority when it hosts Cooks and his new team, the New England Patriots.

Between the Saints and the Chiefs, there is no question as to where the better offense has been. Brady was sacked three times, but twice during the team's freakish final offensive drive when trailing by 15. Gronkowski almost had a first quarter touchdown, but it was overturned by instant replay. That's a great offense, a great team. So New England should look to James White, Rex Burkhead, Dion Lewis and even Mike Gillislee in the passing game to help warm Brady up to short routes.

"The last time Brady completed less than 45 percent of his passes was January 1, 2006, a meaningless Week 17 game when he went 3-for-8 before leaving the game before halftime".

History says the New England Patriots (0-1) opening-night loss to the Chiefs - a 42-27 defeat in Foxborough that saw New England give up 200-plus yards and 21 points to Alex Smith and Co.in the fourth quarter - was an aberration.

President Trump to view Hurricane Irma damage in Florida on Thursday
Many residents are still left without power in the Florida Keys following destruction from Hurricane Irma . President Donald Trump will visit hurricane-stricken Florida on Thursday, according to the White House .

What looked like surgical precision for the first five minutes turned into one of the most ugly losses in the Belichick era. "I remember being really excited about the opportunity to play and to show all the things I'd been working on in the offseason".

A prohibitive favorite to repeat as Super Bowl champs, New England used its unique mastery of tempo and a spread philosophy to put Sutton's defense on its heels immediately.

The Pats were about to use tempo to run the play when referee Bill Vinovich stopped things to call for a measurement. They were one of two defenses who had negative points due to the points they allowed.

Tom Brady now has the worst completion in the entire National Football League through week one, just like we all predicted coming into the new year. "Hopefully we do a better job than the last time we were down there". So, it was just a very poor effort.

Bruins sign Pastrnak to 6-year contract worth $40M
Multiple media outlets reported that the 21-year-old native of the Czech Republic gets some form of a no-movement clause as well. The Boston Bruins signed forward David Pastrnak to a six-year contract worth $40 million, the team announced Thursday.

Looking at the second half, they were overly flat and came out with less fire than they had at the start of the game. "To know we started the season that way was just a lack of communication to start", he said. Another starter, cornerback P.J. Williams, was a 2015 third-rounder who, because of injuries the past two years, was playing in only his third National Football League game.

The oft-injured Amendola exited with a concussion, though, and Sutton quickly realized that Cooks was the only option that could hurt him outside the numbers.

Injuries and playing the tough Minnesota defense certainly had a hand in that.

"They packed it in there pretty good", Brady said. "We'll see here in a couple months where we're at, but we've got a lot of football to play. I've been very blessed over the course of my career and to still be with the same team in my 18th year has just been a great blessing for me", said Tom Brady.

Trump to visit the disaster that Hurricane Irma left behind
Millions are still without power across Florida, and several areas have been devastated by Irma, especially the Florida Keys. It is the third trip that Trump has made in response to a hurricane striking the southern United States.
