It's not like the New England Patriots haven't been here before. They twice lost Super Bowls in agonizing fashion to the New York Giants. They have had to bid farewell to key assistant coaches, and they have watched Coach Bill Belichick make unsentimental decisions about players. And always, the presence of Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady was enough for them to come back for more. And, of course, that very well could be the case again. Theirs remains, even with Sunday night's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in a compelling Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, probably the greatest dynasty the NFL has seen. Patriots owner Robert Kraft has vowed to do all that he can to hold things together for as long as possible. Belichick, Brady and the reconstituted team around them could be back among the league's top contenders next season, attempting to make yet another run at Super Bowl glory. But in the immediate aftermath of Sunday's defeat, there also was room to wonder if things could be … [Read more...] about It’s too early to say the Patriots’ dynasty is over. But the end is near.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Eagles returned to the practice field on Wednesday afternoon to get ready for Sunday’s showdown against the New England Patriots. This morning, Doug Pederson said the Birds’ Super Bowl victory over New England in 2018 has no impact on Sunday’s game. “We’re a different team, they’re a different team from then. Their defense is different today than it was then, offense is different, personnel is different. It’s something that’s part of our cut-ups, but it’s not something that’s a focal point at all going into this game,” Pederson said. He added that Jason Peters — who has missed the last few weeks with a knee injury — is expected to be at practice today. With DeSean Jackson out for the rest of the regular season, the Eagles signed Jordan Matthews for the third time. Carson Wentz says he was happy to hear his good friend would be back in the midnight green. “I was excited. … [Read more...] about Doug Pederson: Eagles’ Super Bowl Victory Over Patriots Has ‘No Impact’ On Sunday’s Game
Carson Wentz gets the biggest win of his career against the defending Super Bowl champions by Jeff Kerr @JeffKerrCBS Nov 13, 2019 at 10:53 am ET • 13 min read The NFL is starting to get unpredictable as Week 11 of the season begins. Who would have fathomed the Atlanta Falcons beating the New Orleans Saints and the Miami Dolphins having the longest winning streak in the AFC East (two)? Another year the NFL won't have an undefeated team either as the San Francisco 49ers held the title of last team standing, falling to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10 (technically the New England Patriots started at 8-0, but lost in Week 9). Week 11 has a highly-anticipated Super Bowl 52 rematch between the Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles, but Nick Foles won't be the quarterback in this one as he has moved on to Jacksonville. This will be Carson Wentz's first opportunity to square off against Tom Brady, as he was unable to participate in the Super Bowl … [Read more...] about NFL Week 11 odds, picks: Eagles upset Patriots in Super Bowl rematch, Ravens beat Texans

The Cleveland Browns were everybody's favourite offseason team. They won the summer with big-name moves, but now they are at 3-6 fighting for their season. How did they get here? Despite their 16-season playoff drought, 21 years without a postseason win - and a 7-8-1 record in 2018, the Browns were finally considered to be turning things around.After a strong finish to last season, the hiring of offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens as head coach and a flurry of moves during the summer - including the acquisition of All-Pro receiver Odell Beckham Jr - they were betting favourites for their own division, the AFC North.Now, nine weeks into 2019, they face a match-up against the division rival Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday that will surely end their season if it results in a loss.What happened to these Browns?Mayfield’s sophomore slumpLet’s start with the quarterback, because while Baker Mayfield should not shoulder all the blame, he hasn’t played up the standard he … [Read more...] about We were too quick to crown the Cleveland Browns
BOSTON (CBS) — Will N’Keal Harry finally make his NFL debut on Sunday? The Patriots still aren’t saying. Harry found his way off injured reserve two weeks ago, and even traveled to Baltimore, but was inactive for New England’s Week 9 loss to the Ravens. That was the first game he was eligible to play after starting the season on IR. Being inactive for that game made some sense, since the Patriots employed a hurry-up offense against the Ravens. That wouldn’t be an ideal way to start one’s NFL career. And chances are Harry wouldn’t have seen much of the field anyways, given that Julian Edelman and Mohamed Sanu played every snap, and Phillip Dorsett sat out just one play. Now, with two more weeks of practice with the team, Harry should be in line to make his debut Sunday when the Patriots visit the Philadelphia Eagles. But once again, the Patriots aren’t giving away any of their plans for their rookie receiver. “We’ll … [Read more...] about Will N’Keal Harry Play Sunday? Bill Belichick Still Won’t Say
