New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is at odds with President Donald Trump on the issue of player protests of the national anthem, calling Trump's comments "just divisive".

Was tight end Rob Gronkowski interfered with on the final play of the fourth quarter by linebacker Luke Kuechly?

A flag was thrown but then picked up, ending the game and handing a 24-20 victory to Carolina. Tom Brady isn't getting any younger and adding topnotch weapons to the unit was among New England's top priorities. The quarterback desperately wanted a penalty on the play. Brady, when asked about his run-in with the referee, decided it was time to apologize for the situation.

"I wasn't very positive", Brady recalled of his postgame tirade. I think one thing about football is that it brings so many guys together, guys that you would never have the opportunity to be around, whether it was in college and all the way into the pros. But yeah, that was a little unfortunate. That would have been a good call. If you don't agree with it, that's fine, you can voice your disagreement; I think that's great.

Ty Montgomery injury not severe, could play in Week 5
Montgomery leads Packers running backs in attempts (46), rushing yards (152), rushing touchdowns (two) and offensive snaps (210). Jones certainly isn't a catch-first back, but in the Packers' offense, he'll certainly need to be used in the passing game.

The move comes just days after Patriots owner Robert Kraft, a friend of President Trump's, ripped the commander in chief for calling on NFL team owners to ban players from kneeling or displaying other forms of protest during the national anthem. "I think Cam had some really big drives", Kuechly said.

"I might've got away with one there. I'm not even going to act like I didn't", he said in a conference call with reporters on Wednesday. "I might have got away with one". I'm sure there will be conversations as we continue to go forward, and we'll see how it goes. I've spent some time up there and I know what those fans are like. We show it. We try to work hard every day and always put the team first, and also understand there are extenuating circumstances at times and you have to respect the people you play with.

"Oh man, let's replay that one, see what happens", Brady said.
