New England’s hopes of a 19-0 season were dashed by Eli Manning, Plaxico Burress, and one of the most unlikely catches in NFL history. The Patriots rewrote the record books thanks to an offense driven by Brady, Randy Moss, and Wes Welker, starching opponents — including the Giants — during an 18-0 start. But New York was able to bully Brady in the pocket and shut down the greatest offense the league had ever seen, leading to the upset win.

Cousins’ price tag and long-term financial commitment make him an unlikely target for Buffalo, but it’s still possible to craft an offer. There are two main goals for the Bills in an offer. One would be to minimize Cousins’ salary-cap impact in 2018, when Buffalo is still relatively tight against the cap. The second goal would be to give the Bills an easy way out of the deal after 2018 in order to turn the offense over to a developing draft pick.
The players wanted the outing to be a personal, intimate experience.
“It’s their championship. They got disinvited to the White House, so it’s up to them what they wanted to do. So they made their plans,” Kerr told ESPN. “I want the players to have a good day and to do something positive and to enjoy what they’re doing.”
The tour will consist only of players, coaches and students, sources said.

“We’re not trying to divide and separate this country,” Curry said at the time of Trump’s tweet. “We’re trying to bring everybody together and speak about love and togetherness and equality. I think that was demonstrated in response to what happened this morning, which is a powerful thing for sure.”
