Belichick on mobile quarterbacks: Cam Newton is "public enemy No. 1"

Devin McCourty leads the New England Patriots with 26 tackles, Trey Flowers has three sacks and Stephon Gilmore has one interception. "But pretty soon we're going to run out of time so the learning curve has to be now". The group is certainly good enough, but outside of Butler, New England's current crop of defensive tackles is better suited to stop the run.

The Panthers have struggled all season with picking up big chunk plays and were held to just 13 points by the Saints, who had the NFL's 32nd ranked defense coming into last week's game. The over is 7-0 in New England's last seven games. Through three games, Carolina is allowing just 252 yards per game. Instead, they were easily defeated by New Orleans 34-13 to fall to 2-1.

Carolina coach Ron Rivera said that even at 40 years old, he thinks Brady is as formidable as ever.

Expect to see a little more balance from the offense this week against Carolina. "But he still has an array of weapons".

"Everybody has their own views on things, some guys just did what they felt was best, how they felt", he said.

It's a big week for the New England Patriots. "It's a week by week thing where we need to keep getting better". The Panthers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings. "I think there's been some things you can pin on him learning and growing in the system".

And Newton said he doesn't feel like it's too late, although nearly every other team staged some sort of protest on Sunday, because the subject of protest is ongoing in the country.

Duke has already matched its win total for last season's stumble. A win at home on Sunday against the Panthers, and they're still hanging around the top of the AFC with a 3-1 record.

GAME OF THE WEEK: No. 2 Clemson at No. 12 Virginia Tech. Yeah, that was a tough game.

In 2013, Newton's third year in the league, Newton completed 19 of 28 passes for 209 yards and three touchdowns, good for a passer rating of 125.4. Offensive lineman Cole Minshew says the Seminoles are trying to "make a statement" and "show everyone we're not just some scrub team".

Since winning the NFL MVP Award and reaching the Super Bowl in the 2015 season, Newton has gone 8-9 as the starter. Georgia Tech's Paul Johnson is the winningest active coach in the league with 179, followed by Miami's Mark Richt (156), Louisville's Bobby Petrino (112), Wake Forest's Dave Clawson (107) and Virginia's Bronco Mendenhall (104). That's the only way they can give their offense a chance to pull off an huge upset. They had to win their final four games in 2014 to make the playoffs, then won a playoff game against the Arizona Cardinals.

What the Panthers do to get him right, if at all possible, is a really intriguing question the rest of the way as he looks like the worst starting quarterback in his division after Matt Ryan, Drew Brees and Jameis Winston.

The change to October 12-14 moves the event from the first race in the six-event NHRA playoffs to the fourth.

CONCORD - The NHRA Carolina Nationals at zMAX Dragway will shift from September to October in 2018, track and NHRA officials announced Thursday. Events at Reading, Pennsylvania; Madison, Ill.; and Ennis, Texas move up one spot on the calendar, with the Texas moving up a week to October 4-7.
