The Patriots' Super Bowl rematch with the Eagles in 11 photos

But it feels all right, feels pretty good.

Tom Brady moved the New England Patriots easily in their Super Bowl rematch against the penalty-prone Eagles, with a little help from running back James White and fifth-round draft choice Ja'Whaun Bentley.

Not surprisingly, though, some observers made at least a little deal out of a pregame moment Thursday, when Brady strode across the field at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., to shake the hand of the opposing quarterback. "I know that was kind of made up to me because that was never my intention that I would, you know, be a bad sport", Brady said after the game when asked about the alleged snub. "We've been competitive here", coach Bill Belichick said at halftime on the team's television broadcast on WBZ-TV, as the Patriots led 27-7 at the break. While Johnson was ready for the boos he'd surely hear, he ultimately was not ready for an aggressive Patriot pass rush, which accounted for three first-half sacks (and finished the game with eight sacks in total) in a 37-20 win for the Patriots.

Rafa Benitez explains why Kenedy took controversial Newcastle penalty against Cardiff
It was 0-0 at the Cardiff City Stadium in a game that the home side should have been leading after a dominant second-half display. Though Kenedy's nightmare match ended worse still after he failed to convert the penalty, ending in a goalless draw.

His return was questionable, the team said. The good news is that means you can save yourself some time and skip this game altogether. We've got our goals ahead of us.

Backup QB Brian Hoyer hooked up with new acquisition Cordarrelle Patterson for an 11-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Brady spoke with Carson Wentz for a brief period.

Patriots: First-round draft choice Isaiah Wynn was taken away from the medical tent on a cart with a left ankle injury. He absolutely diced up the Eagles defense - no matter which string was on the field - as he's done for many years, finding open lanes in the intermediate parts of the field and allowing plays to develop after the catch. New England's other first-round pick, No. 31 overall selection running back Sony Michel, has not played because of a procedure on his knee.
