FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Everything about the New England Patriots’ season was brought to a pause the moment Mac Jones had his left leg crushed under the weight of Baltimore’s Calais Campbell on Sunday.
The NFL’s quarterback carousel may start spinning a bit faster.
Mac Jones, Tua Tagovailoa and Josh Allen got banged up Sunday. Justin Herbert and Jameis Winston played hurt. Already, Dak Prescott and Trey Lance have gone down.

HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — The Las Vegas Raiders have played two fantastic halves of football.
They just haven’t been able to put together four good quarters in the same game.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Patriots center David Andrews had only one thought as his team held a 17-14 lead over the Steelers and faced third down late in the fourth quarter.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Atlanta has only two players on its roster who played in the 2017 Super Bowl, when it squandered a 28-3 lead to the New England Patriots and lost in overtime.
On Sunday, this young, new group of Falcons nearly made 28-3 mean something entirely different.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking for a spark.
The offense struggled for the second consecutive week, while the defense held firm at times without star outside linebacker T.J.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The New England Patriots don't panic. It doesn't matter the year, the opponent or even the quarterback.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The New England Patriots’ offense was already going to look much different this season following the retirement of running back James White.
One game into the season, they are faced with another major adjustment at the position after veteran Ty Montgomery was placed on injured reserve with a right knee injury.

The initial reviews are in, and most of them aren’t good.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Tyreek Hill's success with Kansas City made it easy to imagine the impact he'd make on this new team.
Hill made his Dolphins debut in Sunday’s 20-7 win over the New England Patriots, and his 94 receiving yards was the most by a Miami newcomer in Week 1 since running back Jim Kiick in 1970.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Tua Tagovailoa didn’t seem to celebrate this stat. Bill Belichick certainly isn’t, either.
Tagovailoa hears all the time about the things he supposedly can’t do — can’t throw the deep ball, can’t stay healthy, can’t get to the playoffs, things of that nature.
The NFL is back for the 2022 season and with it some best bets to score, starting with Week 1.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — In some ways, Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel is an enigma to Bill Belichick.
He doesn’t know him too well personally and there’s been little crossover between their staffs.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — On Sunday, New England plays Miami's Dolphins.
Before that, the Patriots will take on Miami's heat.
High temperatures are forecast to be in the mid-60s to mid-70s around Foxborough, Massachusetts, for the next few days — and the way Patriots coach Bill Belichick sees it, those might not be the best atmospheric conditions to prepare his team for the steaminess that awaits them in South Florida on Sunday when New England and Miami kick off the regular season.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — A years-long rebuild has led the Miami Dolphins to a point of excitement with their 2022 prospects.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Over his two-plus decades in New England, Bill Belichick has often said it can take until the midpoint of the season before he knows what type of team he has.
The Patriots coach held to that maxim Monday when describing how he felt about the state of his team less than 24 hours before selecting his first 53-man roster of the 2022 season.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — One thing Mac Jones learned as a rookie is that to be a member of the New England Patriots means not living in the past.
Not the last game, the last quarter or even the last play.

Bozeman got tangled up during an 11-on-11 period and was attended to by trainers for several minutes.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — During his tenure in New England, Bill Belichick has endeavored to keep the reasons behind the decisions he makes private.
So, it’s not surprising that a month out from the Patriots’ regular-season opener, who will be calling plays for his offense remains largely a mystery.
