His Deflategate battle against the NFL reportedly ended when it did only because Brady had a more important battle with which to concern himself back home.
Brady was willing to give up that fight in the name of personal priorities. There’s no reason to believe they would not trump an unnecessarily long playing career, either. And we know very well how Gisele feels about the matter.
But Brady also witnessed the physical deterioration Manning experienced through his last couple of seasons.
“Football is such a physical sport, and every game could be your last game,” Brady told reporters this week. “It’s the reality of the sport, so I’d love to plan for those things. I try to work hard at the things I need to for my body to feel good week after week and year after year.
McVay led Los Angeles from a 4-12 season in 2016 to an 11-5 record in 2017. He was the favorite to be named the league’s best coach for a while. It helped him out that Gurley broke out with 2,093 yards from scrimmage which earned him the offensive player of the year award. Donald anchored the team’s defense tallying 11 sacks and five forced fumbles on the way to being named the league’s best defensive player.
As for the Saints, it was the first time since 1967 a team has swept the offensive and defensive rookie of the year awards. Lattimore was a first-round pick out of Ohio State while Kamara was taken in the third round out of Tennessee. Saints quarterback Drew Brees was also named the Clutch Performer of the Year.
The Super Bowl in 2018 seems relatively easy to predict if one goes by the odds. The Patriots opened as 5 1/2-point favorites over the Eagles in Super Bowl 52, set to be played Sunday in Minneapolis. So of course the majority of SN’s experts are picking New England to beat Philadelphia. But not all.
Super Bowl picks and predictions are the bottom lines during the two-week hype train that is Super Bowl analysis. The matchup will be dissected and previewed to no end. Will Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the Patriots pad the numbers that make up their dynasty? Will the Eagles, with Nick Foles in position to become one of the most unlikely Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks in history, shock the world and win their first Super Bowl?
CBS drew a 17.0 household rating, up 8 percent from a 15.8 for last season’s comparable Pats-Broncos telecast.
Finally some good news for the NFL’s slumping TV ratings: The Patriots’ 27-24 comeback win over the Steelers on Sunday drew the highest TV rating for any NFL game telecast this season.
CBS Sports aired the game of the week in its primo late afternoon slot. During a season in which the NFL’s TV ratings have dropped 7 percent, the nationally televised Week 15 game between AFC rivals and Super Bowl quarterbacks Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger delivered.
It was the highest rating for any NFL game on any TV network this season, according to CBS. It also was the network’s best NFL TV rating since 2015, when Pats-Giants and Chiefs-Broncos both drew 18.3 ratings.
Sunday’s game came down to the final plays. After Steelers tight end Jesse James apparently caught a touchdown pass with 28 seconds to play, the call was reversed upon review and ruled an incompletion.
Even CBS’ Tony Romo and Jim Nantz were confused by the league’s catch rule. Both announcers thought it was a TD and wondered why the officials were taking so long to set up for the extra point attempt.

Trevor Siemian isn’t making any excuses.
After a strong start to the season, the Broncos quarterback admitted he’s been slumping and took full responsibility for his poor performance in recent games.
“When things aren’t going well, you want to make a play, you want to do something — fit a ball in, you want to make sure you don’t miss a play — and that’s when bad things happen. For me I just kind of go back to feeling the flow of the game and not trying to do too much.”
Siemian lost his starting job after Week 8 against the Chiefs before regaining it again in Week 13 against the Dolphins. Amid numerous quarterback changes and the firing of offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Denver has dropped eight straight after entering its bye week with a 3-1 record.
The Broncos (3-9) will look to snap their skid when they host the Jets (5-7) at 4:05 p.m. ET Sunday.
Detroit on Sunday lost its toughest remaining game, in Baltimore in Week 13, to fall to 6-6, four weeks before it finishes with Green Bay. Before then Detroit has favorable games at Tampa Bay, vs. Chicago and at Cincinnati.
The bottom line is nine wins aren’t going to get it done in the NFC. The Packers were not able to move up until the Lions, who won at Lambeau earlier this season, were in position to finish one game behind.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady opened his Saturday news conference by apologizing for lashing out at offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels on the sideline last Sunday, saying it had been bothering him all week.
It’s hard to say. Elliott’s injunction temporarily blocked his suspension and gave him the chance to play out the season. The suspension was then reinstated, then temporarily halted, then reinstated aggain. We don’t yet know if he’ll serve the suspension this season.
There’s clearly a big difference between domestic violence and deflating footballs, but because these are actually labor law matters, the federal court process would be the same for Tom Brady and Elliott.
It’s already been longer than two months since Elliott’s suspension was first announced. Although it is back on for now, this battle isn’t over.
We reviewed just hundreds — a couple hundred pages of statements and information, and we reviewed extensively submissions offered by Mr. Elliott’s representatives as well as the information that the NFL gathered,” Lovelace told SB Nation.
We started our series (in partnership with State Farm) examining all levels of football—youth, high school, college and pro—last week with a visit to the Bay Area. This week, Jonathan Jones, Kalyn Kahler and videographer Steve Raum take us to Charlotte to explore its young football culture.
Jones writes about a Clemson-bound senior kicker at 12-year-old Charlotte South Pointe High, B.T. Potter, who booted a 71-yard field goal in practice and is being trolled by Clemson fans after the Tigers’ regular kicker was lost for the season. Jones writes: “Potter’s Twitter account got blown up by Clemson fans asking if he was eligible to graduate high school early and join the Tigers immediately. One fan told him they called his guidance counselor to check.” Big-time football in the south, folks.
