SPORTS

ORIOLES-RED SOX

The Boston Red Sox play host to the Baltimore Orioles. Game starts at 7:10 p.m.

PATRIOTS-BAFFLED BRADY

Tom Brady isn’t the type to panic over a couple early losses. He’s also not making any promises about where New England’s season could go from here. Brady was held to 133 yards passing Sunday night, part of an abysmal performance by the Patriots in a 26-10 loss to previously winless Detroit. New England barely mustered 200 yards of total offense, and Brady spent most of the game on the sideline as the Lions ran up a huge advantage in time of possession. SENT: 550 words.
