Tom Brady (hand) considered questionable for Patriots

Lora Ball | 20 January, 2018, 18:15

Tom Brady wore red gloves to the when he addressed the media Friday, but the New England Patriots quarterback was not interested in talking about his injured right hand - or much of anything else.

Brady was forced to miss his scheduled press conference to receive medical attention for a hand injury he sustained during Wednesday's practice.

What New England does a nice job of on defense is it doesn't allow a lot of big plays.

Brady will do anything to create a winning atmosphere, which means keeping himself at the level of his teammates.

"They are definitely a fast front", said Andrews. Those are the four who have had to replace the injured Julian Edelman this season. "I'm happy I'm on the defensive side". He has been a crucial cog in leading one of the best defenses in the league in 2017.

Linebacker Telvin Smith was burned repeatedly by Ben Roethlisberger.

The secondary may be as strong as any in the league with Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye manning the cornerback spots along with Barry Church and Tashaun Gipson at strong safety and free safety, respectively. There is no way that he's not playing in this conference title bout. They lost both, but this year's group is confident it can pull off another upset following last weekend's surprise 45-42 divisional win at Pittsburgh.

When asked about the status of their best player, however, several Patriots didn't seem overly concerned.

But even without Sendejo, the Vikings have playmakers all over that defence, and if the Eagles can't establish their run game early on, they'll be in for a long day.

The Patriots head coach deflected questions about Brady's hand, according to a report from ESPN.

"Super tough", the veteran receiver said.

In many ways, it was a no-win situation for Belichick.

The only fly in the ointment that I can imagine here is that ownership did encourage Belichick to trade Jimmy Garoppolo during the season.

New England will do their job on defence, and the chance of another 40-plus scoreline in the Jacksonville column is close to zero.

Otherwise, Belichick can say "I've got this". The Patriots earned the No. 1 seed in the AFC this year. They are sitting at home this Sunday because they lack the kind of Belichick-style leadership that brings a team to realize its full potential, no matter what is swirling around it.

Against the Steelers? Maybe they would be in trouble.

Minnesota is one win away from being the first team to play a Super Bowl in its own stadium. We have not heard as much about the 1979 Rams and the 1984 49ers.

TB: "They're all different". That insurance was worth way more than the Patriots could ever get back in a trade.

It's not only Diggs. You can make the argument that it's an underrated defense. Add tight end Kyle Rudolph and underrated ex-Raiders running back Latavius Murray, and it all starts to add up for the Vikings offense.

You have the give the Jaguars' coaching staff a lot of credit. "We will see how the game goes", Smith said.

History does favor the Vikes in one sense. Brady has guided the Patriots to five Super Bowl titles, including last year's comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI. I'm leaning back toward Minnesota.

You may have seen the note that Tim Tebow is going to spring training with the New York Mets. We're just bullies, man. "You know it matters, it matters".
