"Uhh, are you playing quarterback this week?" The Patriots are now assessing injuries to both of their quarterbacks, Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett.
Backup Jimmy Garoppolo has a sprained shoulder and rookie third-stringer Jacoby Brissett hurt the thumb on his throwing hand.
"Huh?" Edelman first responded before saying, "Well, I'm going to do everything coach asks me to do". "He is definitely ... he doesn't move the way he used to, and I'd be very confident". "We'll see how he does".
However, according to an ESPN report, he likely won't have to. He spoke in rather general terms of his recovery prior to practice. I mean, let's face it. But then they turned around and shocked the world last Sunday not just knocking off the Arizona Cardinals but beating them up pretty good. "Better last week", the veteran defensive tackle said. As pointed out by CBS, the Patriots could eventually finish with a 4-0 record despite using quarterbacks who never started a game in their respective careers.
"Collectively, that's the type of performance our punt unit as a whole wants to have", Allen said. "It's part of football, part of being a competitor".
[0:12] - "You trying to figure out who's going to play (quarterback)? When he comes in [today], see how he feels and we'll make our evaluations there as we go forward". "Just something I deal with". I just care about the Jets.
It sounds like a tough situation for the Patriots offense. Without Watkins, the Bills probably won't have a choice but to try to establish McCoy, which they did successfully last week as McCoy gained 110 of Buffalo's 208 rushing yards.
Please Help on Indus Water Treaty
Pakistan's meeting with World Bank took place amid reports that India could revoke the 56-year-old Indus Water Treaty. Shah expressed fears that India may build more dams on the Jhelum and Chenab rivers if the treaty is abrogated.
SERIES HISTORY: 112th regular-season meeting. Patriots lead series, 68-42-1.
"You look at Bill Belichick's winning percentage against everybody else and against you, and it's higher against you", Patriots Football Weekly editor Paul Perillo asked. On the other side of the ball, they've been without Chandler Jones (traded), Rob Ninkovich (suspended, one more game) and Dont'a Hightower (knee). New England has swept the yearly meetings 24 times, including a year ago.
With Ryan's 1-2 Bills set to take on Belichick's unbeaten Patriots in Foxborough this weekend, the often outspoken coach admitted something that mostly everybody already knew. If both can't go, Edelman will be the starter.
It's the question of the week in New England. Assuming the score remains close or in New England's favor, balance will again be key. And they have 10 sacks in the first three games, putting them on a pace for 53 sacks at the end of the year.
Garoppolo did not play at all in the fourth and final preseason game, while Brady played the first half. New England will focus on stopping the run with Collins. He has done a good job with it.
Still, there's also no ignoring the future Hall of Famer that will soon be back in New England.
