If Gordon is out for an extended period of time, the Patriots need to find pass-catcher help. Without Gordon, they were down to Julian Edelman and two undrafted rookies, Jakobi Meyers and Gunner Olszewski, against the Giants with other pass-catchers like tight end Matt LaCosse also getting hurt. So, who could come to the rescue before the Oct. 29 trade deadline? 1. O.J. Howard Howard is languishing with the Buccaneers where he’s not a featured part of Bruce Arians’s offense and has only 11 catches for 141 yards this season. He’s an obvious fit for the Patriots who love to use tight ends and, well, don’t really have many options there right now. He is a better blocker than Ryan Izzo or LaCosse. He would probably cost a first-round pick, but the Patriots could afford his salary since he’s on a rookie deal.

USD’s Dale Lindsey is deep into his fifth decade as a football coach. The Toreros’ 76-year-old head coach has walked sidelines at the high school, college, Canadian, USFL and NFL levels. And in all that time Lindsey doesn’t know if he’s ever had a team play better than his Toreros did Saturday on the road, dealing Davidson a 37-17 defeat.“I’ve been doing this for 44, 45 years,” said Lindsey. “That’s as good of a win as I’ve ever seen a team accomplish.”On a hot, humid afternoon in North Carolina, the offense was near perfect, scoring on every possession except the last one when the Toreros ran out the clock. After settling for a field goal on its first drive, USD’s next five possessions ended touchdown, touchdown, touchdown, touchdown touchdown.All five of the TDs came on Reid Sinnett passes as the redshirt senior from Iowa was nearly flawless, completing 27-of-32 passes for 358 yards and the five TDs. In a massive … [Read more...] about Sinnett leads USD past Davidson with five TD passes
