FBN-NFL-ICYMI

Tom Brady scrambled and heaved up a wobbly pass off his back foot, the sort of thing a less-experienced, less-accomplished and, well, less-cool QB might do. The ball was picked off, and the New England Patriots were on their way to a second consecutive loss. More importantly _ and more interestingly _ they were on their way to a five-loss season for the first time in nearly a decade. Maybe, just maybe, the Patriots are not who they’ve been for oh so long. The AP takes a look at that and other top topics after the NFL season’s 15th Sunday. By Pro Football Writer Howard Fendrich. UPCOMING: 700 words, photos by 3 a.m. EST.
