Belichick: Pats have to cut down on penalties

The Patriots were flagged for 15 penalties on Sunday in their win over the Vikings, not including the calls that were declined or offset. Through two games, New England has been hit with 24 penalties and assessed 263 penalty yards. That stands in stark contrast to last season, when the Patriots had seven penalties in their first two games of the season and didn’t hit the 24-penalty mark until their fifth game of the year.

On a conference call with the media, coach Bill Belichick said it was something that the Patriots “absolutely” need to address going forward.

“It’s way too much. We can’€™t keep doing that. We had a lot of penalties last week, we had a lot of penalties this week,” he said. “it’€™s not just the penalties — it’€™s the yardage, it’€™s too many personal fouls. We had two interference...

Hasselbeck on D&C: Vikes should cut Peterson

Former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Tim Hasselbeck joined Dennis & Callahan on Monday to discuss the ongoing Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson sagas. To hear the interview, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

Rice was suspended indefinitely by the NFL after a video was released last week of him punching his then-fiancee in an elevator in Atlantic City in February. Later in the week, Peterson was deactivated by the Vikings because he beat his son with a tree branch. Many have wondered whether Peterson will play in the NFL again.
