The Patriots, ouch! Embarrassing! DYK: The Bills became the first team to go through a game with zero punts, zero field goals and zero turnovers.

Chew on this: Tom Brady now has more playoff wins (17), since 2014, than any other starting QB has in his career. Joe Montana is second with 16.

The PGA is back!

Like it or not, Tuukka is back too!

Serbian Novak Djokovic is arguably the best tennis player in the world. The 34-year-old failed in a final appeal against the Australian government’s decision to remove his visa. He is not only missing out on the Australian Open and may also miss the French Open due to his decision to not get vaccinated against COVID-19. To make matters worse, one of his major sponsors wants to meet with him. DOH!

R.I.P. Meat Loaf (74) – The singer’s career spanned six decades and he was in dozens of movies including the “Rocky Horror Picture Show,” “Fight Club” and “Wayne’s World.” His album “Bat Out of Hell” is one of the 10 bestselling albums of all time, with worldwide sales of more than 40 million copies.

DYK: Meat Loaf’s nickname was given to him by his high school football coach because of Meat Loaf’s weight. I imagine if that happened today the kid would be in therapy and his parents would be suing the school.

DYK: There are more 1,133 words in the song “Paradise By the Dashboard Lights”

Be careful out there. (It’s a jungle!)

“Making your way in the world today
Takes everything you’ve got
Taking a break from all your worries
Sure would help a lot
Wouldn’t you like to get away?

Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name
And they’re always glad you came
You want to be where you can see
Our troubles are all the same
You want to be where everybody knows your name”

– Gary Portnoy & Judy Hart-Angelo

“Though it’s cold and lonely in the deep, dark light
I can see paradise in the dashboard light”

– Meat Loaf
