FOXBORO — The Patriots held their first practice in preparation for Super Bowl XLIX against the Seahawks on Thursday. The practice was held indoors, inside the Dana Farber Fieldhouse.

Indy’s D’Qwell Jackson said Thursday he didn’t notice a difference in the air pressure of the football he intercepted in last week’s AFC title game between the Colts and Patriots.

It wouldn’t be the Super Bowl without a little trash talk, and it’s started nine days before the game.

Seattle cornerback Jeremy Lane was asked about Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, and the cornerback’s opinion is quite different than anyone else’s.
