KANSAS CITY Julian Edelman Jerseys Stitched , Mo. — NFL security is investigating whether a fan attempted to shine a laser into the face of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady during their AFC championship game victory over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night.Local television stations posted footage Tuesday that showed a green light flashing on Brady late in the Patriots’ 37-31 overtime victory. At least two instances occurred on their go-ahead drive in the fourth quarter, including a crucial 25-yard pass to tight end Rob Gronkowski.Laser pointers are banned at most sporting events because of the potential for distraction and safety reasons. The light can damage the retina in the eye after even a short period of time.The NFL has dealt with the issue in the past, including a Monday night game in Mexico two years ago in which then-Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler was caught in the eye multiple times. Oddsmakers like the Patriots heading into 2019."The NFL’s 2019 regular season is still more than three months away, but the entire league is already working towards it: free agency and the draft are in the rear-view mirror, offseason workouts are underway Youth Rob Gronkowski Jerseys , mandatory minicamps start in early June. For the New England Patriots, who kicked off their organized team activities on Monday, this means that the quest to defend their title kicks into a higher gear with each week.The Patriots and their 31 challengers are not the only ones already ‘on to 2019’: oddsmakers are also starting to release their first betting lines, with CG Technology the first to publish odds for all of the NFL’s regular season games... well, except week seventeen because too much can and will happen until then to make a prognosis (but apparently not until one week before that). Either way Rob Gronkowski Jerseys Stitched , it looks like the Patriots are a popular pick.As can be seen, New England is favored in all but one of the fifteen games:If the early betting lines are to be believed, the Patriots will be favored to start the regular season 9-0 before being an underdog against the Eagles on the road. The team is then the favorite in all of its remaining games — and it is not expected that its week 17 game at home against the Miami Dolphins will be judged any differently by the oddsmakers: they seem to like the Patriots no matter the opponent and location.Of course, it all means little at this point in time. As noted above a lot can and will happen until the first regular season game is played in early September. Because of that, the lines will probably shift quite a bit. Nevertheless Color Rush Damien Harris Jersey , the early outlook for the 2019 Patriots is a positive one: they are trusted to once again be among the NFL’s elite, no matter the personnel turnover that happened during the offseason.Business as usual.
