Browns vs. Patriots Game 2016: time, TV channel, live stream and Preview

Tom Brady’s return has most of the NFL galaxy predicting a fifth-straight defeat for the Cleveland Browns this week.

Things may not be as straight forward as all that mentioned above, even with Tom Brady back under center for the New England Patriots. Not if the Browns can establish their league-leading ground game at FirstEnergy Stadium this Sunday.

Not if coordinator Ray Horton can craft a scheme to let a sneaky defense catch a rusty Brady cold. He managed the trick for the Arizona Cardinals in 2012, even though he had greater talent at his disposal. Yet Horton isn’t completely shorn of players who could wreck New England’s offense. Cornerback Joe Haden is one of the NFL‘s best, while edge-rusher Cam Thomas has been making waves in recent weeks.

Thomas had two sacks and forced a fumble against the Redskins last week. He’ll be crucial to Horton’s plan for pressuring Brady.

Yet what could really decide this game is how effectively the Browns can attack the Pats’ defense. There are certainly ample weapons at rookie quarterback Cody Kessler’s disposal. Wide receiver Terrelle Pryor and running back Duke Johnson are the obvious matchup nightmares for the Patriots.

Expect Pats head coach Bill Belichick and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia to ensure Pryor draws a crowd wherever he lines up. But Johnson may prove tricker to track. He’s one of the best pass-catching running backs in football, and a player New England’s beefy linebackers will struggle to stay with in space.

Getting tight end Gary Barnidge involved will also take advantage of any weaknesses in underneath coverage. However, the easiest way to help Kessler settle will be to turn running back Isaiah Crowell loose.

He’s averaging 6.5 yards per carry and ripping off some huge runs. Most of the best come behind left tackle Joe Thomas. If he knocks open enough holes for Crowell, New England’s 15th-ranked rush defense will struggle to keep pace.

Keeping Brady under wraps is a tall order for any team. He’s back to direct an offense still loaded with game-winners, particularly tenacious wide receiver Julian Edelman.

Bills vs. Patriots Game 2016: Time, TV schedule, and live stream

The New England Patriots host their AFC East rival in the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Here is how to watch this Week 4 AFC East rivalry game online.

Patriots Game

It doesn’t seem to matter which quarterback is under center, the New England Patriots just keep on winning. They’ll put their 3-0 record on the line against a familiar foe in Rex Ryan and the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

With Tom Brady still suspended and Jimmy Garoppolo out injured, Bill Belichick turned to third-round rookie Jacoby Brissett under center on Thursday during Week 3. Although Brissett’s stats don’t pop out, Belichick devised a masterful game-plan to take advantage of his strengths and hide his weaknesses. The Patriots Game were in control the whole time in a 27-0 win over the Houston Texans.

Unfortunately, Brissett suffered a thumb injury in that game, leaving the quarterback situation wide open once again. Both he and Garoppolo practiced this week, but as usual, Belichick won’t reveal who is starting on Sunday. Most signs indicate that it’ll be Garoppolo under center if he’s ready to go.

But regardless of who plays quarterback this week, the Patriots Game are more than capable of humming along until Brady comes back. LeGarrette Blount is producing as the workhorse running back, leading the league with 298 rushing yards in the first three games. Rob Gronkowski should be closer to full health after missing two games and being on a strict snap count last week. And the defense has been exceptional, with linebacker Jamie Collins emerging as an early Defensive Player of the Year contender.

After two games, the Bills looked dead in the water. They started 0-2 and fired offensive coordinator Greg Roman, and things were looking like a slow death march for Rex Ryan. However, the Bills rebounded to pull off the biggest surprise of Week 3, stomping the Arizona Cardinals, 33-18.

It was a vintage Rex Ryan performance in pretty much every way. The defense picked off Carson Palmer four times, LeSean McCoy chewed up the running game with 110 yards, and Tyrod Taylor did just enough at quarterback to not lose the game. Taylor threw for just 119 yards on 25 attempts and had no touchdowns, but the Bills likely won’t mind as long as they’re winning the game. Taylor also added 76 rushing yards on nine attempts.

Buffalo isn’t totally out of the woods yet. Sammy Watkins was placed on injured reserve after his surgically repaired foot just couldn’t get right, ruling him out for at least the next eight weeks. The Bills need Watkins because he’s the one receiver on this team who adds a real field-stretching element to the passing game. The deep ball is Taylor’s biggest strength, but he’s not nearly as effective without Watkins on the field. His absence leaves a massive hole in the offense.

Patriots Game

Rex Ryan is always at his most entertaining when he’s preparing for a divisional rival and this week has been no different, with him impersonating a reporter to try getting some answers out of Julian Edelman. However, his on-field results haven’t been as rewarding — the Patriots Game swept the Bills last year en route to yet another AFC East title. A Bills win here would get them to 2-2 and completely change the narrative of their season, but the Patriots won’t be letting their foot off the gas pedal at home. Whatever the result, this game should be must-see television.

Dolphins vs. Patriots Game: live stream: Start time, TV schedule info

The Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots Game both had players make demonstrations during the Star-Spangled Banner last week. And that’s where the similarities between the two teams end.

The Patriots Game couldn’t have enjoyed a more convincing Week 1 win. They were 9.5-point underdogs heading into Arizona. With Rob Gronkowski and two tackles out of the lineup, the expectations were low for Jimmy Garoppolo in his first career start. But he passed the test with flying colors.

Garoppolo, 24, finished the night 24-of-33 for 264 yards and a touchdown pass. Perhaps the most impressive play of his night came on a third down when he found Danny Amendola for a 32-yard pass during the game-winning touchdown drive. The pocket was collapsing, but Garoppolo slid over to his left and uncorked the picturesque throw.

On the whole, it was difficult to nitpick Garoppolo’s performance. But unsurprisingly, Bill Belichick’s praise has been relatively understated this week when it comes to Garoppolo. He also snapped at a reporter who asked him his opinion on the “Garoppolo storyline.”

“Well I mean, I’m really really concerned about the storyline,” Belichick said, via CBS Boston. “There’s really nothing higher on my list than the storyline tomorrow.”

After a win in Arizona, it’s conceivable the Patriots Game could go undefeated while Tom Brady serves his four-game DeflateGate suspension. They play their next three contests at Gillette Stadium, where they win 83 percent of the time.

The Patriots Game are heavy favorites over the Dolphins Sunday, and rightfully so. For starters, the Dolphins haven’t won in Foxborough in eight years. But they also personified the phrase of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in the loss to the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday.

On the whole, Miami’s defense had a good day. It sacked Russell Wilson on three occasions and hit him nine times as well. But in the fourth quarter, when the game was on the line, the Dolphins allowed Seattle to march down the field for a game-winning touchdown. Wilson connected with Doug Baldwin in the end zone with 35 seconds remaining to end it.

The Dolphins’ offense wasn’t even competitive, though. Perhaps the lowlight of the season happened early in the second quarter, when Kenny Stills dropped what would’ve been a surefire 71-yard touchdown reception.

It’s a big season for Ryan Tannehill, who took a step back in 2015 after he had signed $96 million extension. It will be an especially big stage for him Sunday, as he attempts to show why he’s the second-best quarterback in the division behind Brady.

But if Garoppolo plays like he did Sunday, then he may be able claim that title — as weird as it may be. Gronkowski may still be out of the lineup with a hamstring injury, but Julian Edelman should be in there. Garoppolo should be more than comfortable throwing to slot receivers in a spread offense — just like Brady.

Patriots vs Giants 2016: Game time, TV channel, live streaming free and more

Neww England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will not play for the first four games of the regular season due to his DeflateGate suspension, but he might just find himself playing in the team’s fourth preseason game against the New York Giants on Thursday.

Starters are typically nowhere near the fourth preseason game, and see the most playing time the week before. Brady did not play in the first two preseason games, but he suited up in Week 3 and said he wants to play in the final game as well. It’s an unusual situation, and it seems Brady simply wants to play some football before he has to sit for four weeks while the focus will be on Jimmy Garoppolo.

Garoppolo is the starter in Brady’s absence. He is traveling with the team for the fourth preseason game but it’s unclear if he’ll see any playing time, as he can be considered a starter, at least for the first four weeks of the season. Protecting Garoppolo, a quarterback the Patriots obviously feel comfortable with, should be the top concern for the team at this stage.

Whether Brady will play (or Garoppolo, for that matter) is totally up in the air and likely won’t be known until just before game time.

Garoppolo completed 11 of 18 passes for 168 yards in the preseason opener against the New Orleans Saints, 16 of 21 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown in Game 2 against the Chicago Bears and 9 of 15 for 57 yards in the third preseason game against the Carolina Panthers.

He hasn’t thrown an interception in the preseason just yet, and while he lacks the top-end scoring production of someone like Brady, he should be a good player to have under center while New England’s defense carries the load for a few games.

It hasn’t been a great preseason for the Giants’ starters on offense. The starting offense has yet to score a point, though it’s unlikely they’ll see any playing time on Thursday. Going out and putting up a touchdown against New England’s backups wouldn’t do much for morale, so look for business as usual out of the Giants in this fourth preseason game.

Thursday’s game between the two will be begin at 7 p.m. ET. It will be broadcast nationally on the NFL Network. If you’re watching locally, the stations are listed below. A live stream will be available via NFL Game Pass as well.

Game Preview: 5 things to watch

1. Will Brady be there? – Last week, we asked if he’d actually play. This time, we won’t even presume that he’ll be there — not until he’s spotted on the field. There’s a report that he made the flight with the team down to Charlotte, but you never know with this team.

2. Will Anthony Johnson follow up his Game 2 performance? – The previously unknown defensive tackle was the star of the game against the Chicago Bears last week. He has Patriots fans’ attention. Now can he keep it for the second straight week?
3. More testing for Garoppolo – The backup QB had a solid showing against the Bears. However, there will be no shortage of scrutiny on him this season. If he can keep up his solid play, that’s a good sign for the first four weeks of the regular season. If he slips up in Carolina, though, he could lose a lot of the good will he’s built up.

4. The running back battles – We know that James White and LeGarrette Blount are hanging around, but can a guy like D.J. Foster or Tyler Gaffney sneak onto the roster? They could get a shot with a strong showing against the Panthers.

5. Can the offensive line figure it out? – With the trade of Bryan Stork, the Patriots seem to have settled on their center. However, they need to figure out their right guard and right tackle spots. The line hasn’t looked particularly sharp so far this preseason. Game 3 will be a good indicator of whether impending doom will be bearing down on Patriots quarterbacks in the regular season.
