Top takeaways from Sunday’s Week 9 NFL action

  Top takeaways from Sunday’s Week 9 NFL action There's only one undefeated team left thanks to the Ravens' dominance over New England. Meanwhile, the QB woes for several teams continue.From there, Sunday was filled with other top-end teams failing. That included the Minnesota Vikings seeing their four-game winning streak come to an end and the Green Bay Packers putting up a pathetic performance against the Chargers in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, the Baltimore Ravens made a major statement at home against the defending champs.

Reports that Belarus might disable Internet access during the presidential race first started appearing several days before the presidential election concluded. Right now in central Minsk Facebook (incl. Messenger), YouTube, Instagram, WhatsApp, Viber are all blocked via mobile internet.

But the balmy southern California temperatures weren’t enough to convince the couple to splurge on pricey airfare for only a long weekend. Plus, they’d have to contend with the added wrinkle of traveling with a new member of the family: their 9-week-old son Trae.

So, the Van Noys passed up the six-hour flight to stay local. There’s nothing too adventurous on the agenda. A self-proclaimed TV junkie, Van Noy has a number of shows currently in the mix, including “Power,” “Bosch,” and “Snowfall.” He and Marissa also just started the new season of “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.”

The Patriots wrapped up at Gillette Stadium early Wednesday afternoon, giving players four full days off before the team resumes practice on Monday. The break represents the longest period of free time since Trae’s birth that Van Noy can dedicate completely to his wife and newborn.

The Patriots, who had allowed 85.3 rushing yards per game (fourth in the NFL), gave up more rushing yards Sunday (210) than they had in five years.

For two Patriots , bye is all about ( new ) family . Tom Brady on Patriots ’ season: ‘It hasn’t all been perfect, but 8-1, I don’t think anyone’s going to complain about that ’.

Weekend plans as Patriots head into the bye . First thing that catch up on some rest, you know trying to get healthy as you can um you know, it, then. This thing after that is when you know what can you improve on the traditional self scouting uh.

“It’ll be exciting to hang with them,” said Van Noy, who is in the midst of an outstanding season alongside his fellow “Boogeymen.”

The 28-year-old defensive menace isn’t the only new dad on the Patriots. Running back James White and his wife Diana also welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Xzavier, earlier this season. White’s plans for the time off are essentially identical to Van Noy’s: Hang out with family and relax.

“I haven’t been home that much because we’ve been practicing and traveling,” White said. “You wish you could be there more. It kind of goes fast when you’re not at home as much.”

Both players missed a game to be at the hospital the day of their sons’ births. Van Noy was inactive for the season-opener against the Steelers, while White didn’t suit up for New England’s Week 3 matchup against the Jets. Both also returned to practice the next day, with neither skipping a game or practice since.

Given their demanding schedules, balancing fatherhood and football has been a bit of an adjustment for the two professionals. Van Noy and White each credited their wives for easing the transition.

“She makes it real easy,” said Van Noy. “She’s honestly the MVP. She deserves all the credit.”

“The mom is the real trooper because it takes a lot out of them, too,” echoed White.

Although Trae is an infant who, per his dad, spends most of his time eating, sleeping, and crying, Van Noy has enjoyed watching the early stages of development. He says Trae is becoming increasingly active, most recently looking like he’s trying to “run on water.” Trae has also begun smiling and flashing more facial expressions, Van Noy proudly adds.

“He’s trying to figure out how things work,” Van Noy said. “It’s still early, but, as of right now, he’s really chill. He’s kind of like me because he gets angry when he’s hungry. He gets ‘hangry.’ But, other than that, he’s pretty chill.”

White noted Xzavier, too, is already starting to exhibit more personality at seven weeks old. He can use his hands, often to grab at White’s beard. “Soon enough, he’ll be talking and blurting stuff out,” White said. “I’m just trying to enjoy every moment.”

“You have one person to worry about and care for — in a good way,” said Van Noy. “It’s not a scary feeling. It’s not overwhelming, but it’s just a sense of, ‘I got to step up and take care of my own.’ ”

“I want to be an example for him,” added White. “There’s just more responsibility for me. I’m more aware of things, more aware of my surroundings, things of that nature, and things that will protect him and keep him from harm’s way.”

Report: Mohamed Sanu could miss multiple weeks with high-ankle sprain .
Losing Sanu, who the Patriots acquired for a second-round pick, would be another blow to a thin receiving corps and a passing attack that can’t find a rhythm. Sanu exploded on Nov. 3 against the Baltimore Ravens with 10 receptions for 81 receiving yards. He found open spots in the secondary early against the Eagles before suffering the ankle injury.If Sanu is unable to play on Sunday and misses additional time, New England will need first-round pick N’Keal Harry to step into a much more significant role moving forward as a go-to target for Brady.
