Latest Patriots’ win highlights weapons Brady still has

first_img“It’s really not about those things to me. It’s about points,” Brady said after New England’s 38-24 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night .It was the second straight game the Patriots have scored 38 points. It’s also the second consecutive week that it’s looked like Brady and the offense are turning a corner following a lackluster 1-2 start to the season that included a paltry 10-point effort in a loss to Detroit.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back Chriss“Ultimately we gotta score more points,” Brady said. “We scored 38, which is great. But we have more in us.”Buoyed by the return of receiver Julian Edelman from his four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance enhancers, Brady looked like the reigning regular-season MVP for the first time this season.

But it was good to get out there and catch some rocks and go out there and make some plays and be with the fellas,” Edelman said. “I haven’t played football in like, 405 days or something like that. It was good to be out there with the crowd rocking. It was awesome. It was amazing. It’s great to be back.”DISAPPOINTING STARTWhile the Patriots are finding their footing, the Colts have lost three straight and slipped to 1-4.One of the recurring themes has been self-inflicted mistakes, particularly turnovers. Indianapolis had three more on Thursday.“We’re not going to win consistently until we learn how to get out of our own way,” Colts quarterback Andrew Luck said. “I think when we look at ourselves, we’re going to have to learn how not to lose before we want to give ourselves a chance to win. And so, it’s frustrating, the stuff out there. We’re all frustrated but I don’t think anybody’s losing the belief.”INJURIES PILING UPLuck did his best to keep Indy in the game, even as injuries continue to pile up around him.Indianapolis entered the game with receiver T.Y. Hilton headlining a list of five starters that were sidelined. The Colts added four more key players to that list on Thursday.Linebacker Anthony Walker left in the first quarter with a concussion. Safety Clayton Geathers was initially evaluated for a concussion early in the second quarter, before clearing the protocol. But he remained out with a neck injury. Defensive tackle Margus Hunt (knee) and DT/DE Denico Autry (hamstring) also both had short nights.Coach Frank Reich said the injuries weren’t even discussed entering the game.

Brady didn’t complete more than two passes on an opening drive in any of the team’s first four games.And after an offseason that featured lots of player departures on the offensive side of the ball, Thursday’s victory also highlighted just how many weapons Brady still has at his disposal.Rookie running Sony Michel came up just two yards shy of his second straight 100-yard game. Tight end Rob Gronkowski broke out of a recent fog with six catches for 75 yards. And recent acquisition Josh Gordon notched his first touchdown — Brady’s 500th — showing off his ability as the big-play threat this offense has been missing.Edelman’s return might have simply been an extra cherry on top an already-decadent cake.ADVERTISEMENT New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady signals on the sideline during the first half of an NFL football game against the Indianapolis Colts, Thursday, Oct. 4, 2018, in Foxborough, Mass.

So, we just got to pick up the pieces and I still have a lot of confidence in our players.SLINGING IT AROUNDPerhaps because of all the injuries, Luck is having to carry a lot more of the offensive load for the Colts.Over the last two games, he has attempted 121 passes. According to Elias Sports Bureau that’s the second-most pass attempts in a two-game span in NFL history and the most ever in a five-day span. Philip Rivers holds the record with 123 pass attempts in Weeks 6 and 7 in 2015.MILESTONESColts K Adam Vinatieri missed a 38-yard field goal in first quarter. But it marked his 673rd attempt, passing Gary Anderson for second on the all-time list.Vinatieri made a 54-yarder in the second quarter on his 674th attempt. He now trails only Morten Andersen’s 709 career attempts.With his victory, Brady has now tied Vinatieri for most wins by player in NFL history (226).

AFL Probing Wainsue Town Assault

first_imgFormer Defense Minister Brownie J. Samukai, Jr. The Ministry of Defense has begun investigations into the reported assault on the people of Wainsue Town by personnel of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL), as it was reported by the media on May 19 & 20.A statement issued by the MOD quoted Deputy Minister for Operations, Saint Jerome Larbelee, as saying that preliminary investigations have already begun in a meeting with citizens of Wainsue Town.Mr. Larbelee promised both local government officials and those alleging that they were beaten, that the Minister of National Defense, Brownie J. Samukai, Jr. has instructed the High Command of the AFL to probe the incident, and those found guilty will be dealt with expeditiously according to the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).He described the incident as a “troubling saga” since much has been done to ensure that the Armed Forces of Liberia is a “force for good” striving to safeguard Liberia’s peace; and as such, will support no acts “absolutely whatsoever” that seek to disturb the peace that Liberians now enjoy.Larbelee admitted that what happened in Wainsue Town was an isolated incident that involved some personnel of the AFL, and can in no way denigrate (tarnish) the good image that the AFL has built over the years.He explained that AFL personnel have received countless trainings that have enabled them to foster the protection of human rights and esteem the essence of human existence over the years; thus, contributing to Liberia being where it is now.“As an institution, the High Command of the AFL will not accept or allow any of its personnel to perpetrate brutality against any peaceful Liberian in this age and dispensation,” Mr. Larbelee said.The AFL statement said the Ministry of National Defense has instructed the AFL to conduct a full-fledged independent investigation into “this troubling saga” that will actually reveal what happened at Wainsue between the citizens and the AFL personnel. It may be recalled that on May 19 and 20 AFL personnel were reported to have gone on a rampage, assaulting some citizens of Wainsue after one of their members had an altercation with a motorbike rider in the township.Following the incident, the Ministry of Defense was officially informed by the Superintendent of Bong County, Selena Polson Mappy, and the Representative of District #3, Bong County, Rep. George S. Mulbah Sr.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) – Advertisement –last_img read more
