Staff predictions: New England Patriots vs. New Orleans Saints


The New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints square off Sunday afternoon each looking for their first victory of the season. I mean, we don't talk about it. "I do want go out playing my best".

CBS says that Brady and "CBS This Morning" co-host Norah O'Donnell spoke multiple times at his home outside of Boston and at the TB12 Sports Therapy Center. They have always had these kind of really good, quick slot receivers that understand how to get in and out of a break and really are on the same page with Tom Brady as far as am I breaking this in or am I breaking this out and it will be interesting to see who they use in that role and how they try and get to those concepts and what that rapport is with Brady.

The Patriots are still considered to be the team to beat in the National Football League this season, but they've got work to do if Brady wants to win an unprecedented sixth title in the 2017 campaign.

"We're going to have to do a good job of that because you don't want to give those guys a huge time of possession advantage", said Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during his Wednesday press conference. 'And I'm going to do everything I can to take care of my body in advance of the, you know, of the hits that I'm going to take on Sunday'.

The interview with O'Donnell is to promote his new book "The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance" which will be released on September 19.

Brady's wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, had said in a May interview that the quarterback has had unreported concussions and she anxious about his long-term health.

"He had a concussion past year", Bundchen said on the program. He does have concussions.

I think that's a good thing. "That could not be healthy for you". Even with Danny Amendola possibly being out with a concussion, Brady will find a way with the weapons he has on offense.

Brady was never officially documented with a concussion in 2016. League spokesperson Brian McCarthy said Brady had released his records for review as part of the process.

The NFL has also created game-day procedures in an attempt to identify concussions when they happen and keep concussed players from returning to the game. I really don't think that's anybody's business, what happened a year ago. I'm focused on this year and improvement and working on things I need to get better at'.
