1. How the punt return game could be an “X” factor in the Super Bowl.
2. Reaction to the NFL’s investigation on the Patriots’ underinflated footballs.
3. Fire alarms going off in the team hotel two of their first three nights in town.
4. Why stopping Marshawn Lynch is key No. 1 for the Patriots defense, and in turn, getting the running game going is critical for New England. more
