FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Quarterback Cam Newton and the New England Patriots have come a long way in a short time. Now they can measure how far they have to go in Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium (4:25 p.m. ET, CBS).

“We know we’re going to have our work cut out for ourselves in Kansas City. It’s a championship football team,” coach Bill Belichick said. “We’ll have to play our best game. And coach it.”

The script has been flipped a bit in that regard.

It’s not every day an NHL General Manager gets to make the call three times in the first 20 picks of an Entry Draft.

But that’s exactly what Tom Fitzgerald, Director of Amateur Scouting Paul Castron and their staffs will be able to do in early October.

New Jersey have in their possession the seventh, 18th and 20th pick.

Sportsnet’s Sam Cosentino joined the Speak of the Devils podcast to share his thoughts on how he feels the Devils are positioned entering the draft.

“If you’re Fitzy, you’ve got to be really excited about the opportunity of having those three selections that you can actually call your own. And the way I would game-plan is when I look at some of the acquisitions of some of those close to NHL ready prospects last year, Nolan Foote, Nick Merkely, Nate Schnarr, those type of players who are very close to being

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carolina Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has a reputation for being more of a game manager than a game changer. His role with the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints and now the Panthers has been to get the ball into the hands of his playmakers.

Now the Panthers’ best playmaker — running back Christian McCaffrey — is out for four to six weeks with a high ankle sprain. It puts some pressure on Bridgewater to become more of a game changer to make up for the loss of the league’s best all-around running back.

“I’m definitely ready for whatever is expected,” Bridgewater said as he prepares to face the Los Angeles Chargers (1-1) on Sunday (4:05 p.m., Fox). “As long as they see I have that determination, my coming to work every day with that chip on my shoulder, everyone is going to elevate their game also.

In today’s digital age, where companies constantly compete to people’s attention and turn it into profit, running a business requires a lot of writing. And we mean, A LOT. There’s your website, and then your blog, your social media posts, your newsletters, your advertisements, your guest posts, and what have you.

Basically, the list goes on, and if you think that’s all there is to it, there’s also SEO, keyword research, editing, publishing, and of course, distribution. All of that requires immense amount of work and it’s highly unlikely that you’ll use your hours to do all of that when you’re already handling other aspects of your business. In fact, there are a lot of business owners that don’t even have the skill to do it.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — New England Patriots longtime running backs coach Ivan Fears insisted all last season that 2019 third-round pick Damien Harris had a bright future despite regularly being inactive.

Fears laid it out: Because the Patriots were so deep at running back with Sony Michel, James White, Rex Burkhead and Brandon Bolden, there were never any serious injuries, and Harris didn’t have a significant role on special teams, he simply needed to be patient and his time would come.
