Receivers needed to lend a hand — PATRIOTS NOTEBOOK

AKIEM HICKSAKIEM HICKS

"J.J's a great player, he's very talented, he's got a great motor and is very instinctive", Belichick told the media.

That kind of craziness really seems to be a problem in week one. He'll join five active National Football League players, including Larry Fitzgerald and Drew Brees, in the huge honor of wearing the Man of the Year patch on his jersey the rest of his career. Each one was a battle and even in their two wins, the largest margin of victory was just seven points (a 28-21 victory over Pittsburgh in 2015).

New England also has a new look on defense.

For the Houston Texans, who open the 2018 campaign on Sunday against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium, their cause for confidence is rooted in something more than blind faith.

Belichick's teams have had trouble in Week 1 over the past four seasons. "The last couple years, a lot of parts about football weren't enjoyable when they should have been".

Guerrero's privileges with the Patriots have been expanded this year. They've lost two games twice and only finished 4-0 once, which was back in 2015.

The online video channel aired "Epilogue, The Next Game" at noon.

Also back for the Texans are outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus, who tore his pectoral muscle in Week 5, and defensive tackle Christian Covington, sidelined the final nine games following a biceps injury.

Korean leaders schedule third summit, envoy says
They then met with the North Korean leader to discuss the agenda of the upcoming inter-Korean summit and other matters. US President Donald Trump praised North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Thursday for reportedly expressing faith in him.

One of those times came 10 years ago this month, when Brady suffered a season-ending knee injury in the first quarter of the first game.

Tom Brady discussed some of the media reports of drama within the New England Patriots organisation and admitted the past couple of seasons "weren't enjoyable", though the National Football League great has learned how to deal with it better.

Last week, Brady cut short an interview on "Kirk & Callahan" after being asked multiple times about his relationship with his trainer and business partner Alex Guerrero. "I would love to play 41, 42, 43, 44, 45", said Brady, counting the years out on his hand.

Watson said before practice on Wednesday that he's just ready to be back on the field with his teammates, "I'm very excited just to be able to get back in action. this is the start of the season. So, that's where we're at this week".

His performance was a revelation for a team that has dealt with years of disappointment and inconsistency at quarterback, with the lowlight coming when the team signed Brock Osweiler to a $72 million contract in 2016 and traded him after just one tough season.

It will be interesting to see what the next few years have in store for Brady. "So, we try to morph the offense to what we all do a good job at and those things change over the course of the season".

"I just knew from the time that he arrived here that he had really good poise", O'Brien said.

Belichick, while speaking on NFL Network analyst Ian Rapaport's podcast, shared a great story about when he and Brady were grouped together at the 2014 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and Brady made a decision to risk his life while hitting his third shot on Pebble's oceanside par-5 sixth hole.
